I'm working on making the forum site easier for users to use. In my opinion, the best thing is to link your forum site to a mobile application.
May I ask what do you do to make it easier to use? I have responsive theme so it is really comfortable to use from the phone as well. To create a mobile application is not easy and cost a lot.

That's what I thought, I can't really pay so much for mobile application and don't really see any purpose in my case.

There is no value in free things. You have to pay to get quality things. But you have to plan very well.
Why are you using phpBB?

I would like to listen what other people think about it, the ones who are running forums for many years already, will they be as active as before or FB groups and Instagram replaced them forever?
