    **PLEASE CLICK ON THE THUMBS UP IF YOU AGREE**

    To the best of my knowledge there is an Android app but there is not an Iphone App for this site.

    The Android app came out in August of 2011 and hasn't been worked on since it came out. Many features aren't functioning. Regardless, I know many, like myself, are using the app daily.

    Why hasn't there been any work done on either of these?? I know the requests for these two apps have been on these forums since at least 2008.

    Looking at the player tables, I see there are 15719 users on this site. If only half are subscribers that is $235706.40 in annual revenue. If only a quarter are subscribers that's still $117853.20.
    How about you take a $1000 and find someone to work on these two applications. I guarantee you will get more traffic and more subscribers to this amazing site through these applications.

    Please don't let this request fall on deaf ears yet again! Admins, please respond.

    It would be great and, in a world of iPhones, would certainly expand RHP's client base. Write the app like so many others in which an incessant barrage of ads encourages users to subscribe or generates income if they refuse. It's win, win, win!

    Whoops! Just discovered there already is an app...of sorts. Use safari and put in the URL 'iphone.redhotpawn.com'. You can sign in an play and it's much like an app if you place a shortcut to it on your main screen.

    Except that you cannot view games unless it is your turn and there is no analysis board, to start. I find it unusable. I just go to the www.redhotpawn.com on the safari app and use it there. A usable app would be a huge improvement.

    I agree! I would love to have native iPhone AND iPad apps! I use my iPad now more than ever.
