I think this must have been suggested before, or at least asked about, and it's quite a big job which I appreciate. But I was wondering whether there was much demand or whether the staff members were ever thinking of developing an app for this website?

I only ask because I'm always using my phone/iPad etc and the only reason I use my laptop is so that I can use this website easily (trying to use it on the phone can be a pain sometimes), and I thought there must be a few people that are in the same-ish boat/would prefer to use this as an app rather than just the website.

As far as I know, ACC will not be making an app due to there being many different devices they'd have to develop for. Instead, in ACC 2.0, I have been told there will be a web app.

Yeah, I thought it was unlikely they'd develop a whole app for this website but I thought to ask anyway.

Thanks for replying

This has been considered before, and we decided that a more mobile-friendly website would be better than an app.

With an app, we'd need at the very least an android and iOS version, and even then, that wouldn't cover a number of devices like the 3DS.

A mobile-friendly website will not only be easier to code, but will also be universal.

The other problem is that this site is technically a giant copyright violation and, even though Nintendo is cool with it, no app store would allow such an app.

Thank you so much guys!

I see all your points and a mobile friendly site would definitely be a lot nicer.

Even if the website wasn't a copyright thing/not mobile-friendly/whatever... the amount of things this website gets done is so hilariously low, I wouldn't bother getting your hopes even if an app WAS announced to be in the making.

Like, you know, the Bell Store

Oh don't; I've been waiting for the Bell Store ever since they first announced it!

But then again, as a fellow programmer I can also understand why things take such a long time and I can empathise with the shedload of effort and pain it takes to get something finsihed
