Forum Fiend for Android has just been updated to v1.2.9 and is now available to download direct from Google Play and the Ape Market. This update includes several new features that people have been looking forward to, as well as bug fixes and performance updates. Two of the more prominent new features people will notice are that the app now renders many smiley face symbols in posts, and that file attachment downloads are now fully supported in-app!
Also new to Forum Fiend is the ability to share topics and open forum pages directly in your web browser, for forums based on phpBB. Rendering support has also been added for several less common BB code tags, including the [code] tag.
For those who are unaware, Forum Fiend is a mobile forum reader app available for Android and Windows Phone that runs off of the widely available Tapatalk API. It can be used as an alternative to the official Tapatalk app for those users who wish to browse their forums using a slightly different interface and layout. It also forms the code basis for the mobile app versions of the Role Playing Forums and Alien Forums websites.
The Forum Fiend update is available now for free from Google Play. Windows Phone users have not been forgotten either, an update to Forum Fiend for Windows Phone is currently under way and should be hitting the Windows Phone store shortly, but that is a subject for another post. For now, Android users can follow the link below to download Forum Fiend today!
