It seems that a lot of boards are losing membership and traction to due the fact that JM is not user friendly for mobile devices. But Facebook is, so many, many groups are moving there for conversation.

There is a sense that people want to stay here, but the convenience factor of FB wins out, so more and more boards are fighting to stay alive, and it feels like a losing battle. I know my home board, the July 09 Playroom, is becoming desolate. I was resistant to joining the Facebook group because I wanted to keep my personal identity (last name) private, but if I want to maintain connections with my JM friends, I have to be in both locations. It stinks. What's worse is FB is less moderated, so we've seen some nasty spats happen over there, which in turn negatively affects the JM page.

If Internet Brands is interested in keeping the traffic up on the message boards, I think they should seriously consider working on an online app. The appetite of the users is out there.

Is there anything already in the works? I saw this was requested back in July when the initial transfer was announced, but it was understandably early to dive right in.

I know right now the priority is getting JM a little more stable. We are still working out some of the bugs with the server migration. Once we can get the data base errors resolved and get JM more stable, we can start discussing some of the feature requests. I can't give you any sort of time frame on when/if we will get a mobile app for JM but I am passing all of your requests along. Hopefully, once the tech team can get some of the pressing issues taken care of they can start looking adding cool things and requested features to JM.

Thanks Patty! I understand the need to prioritize- hopefully folks will still be around once IT can move on to bigger and cooler things.

(For the record, my phone is very dumb, not smart, so this isn't a personal request. I can barely take a picture with it, let along surf the web! But I love my playroom and want everyone to come back.)
