I would love to see a MyLot app for the iPhone/iPad. I't would keep participation up and compete a little more with other mobile social networks. Your thoughts?

"other mobile social networks"? There is no other site like myLot and it cannot be compared to the 'other' popular sites as here we have to put our thinking caps on and fill the pages with QUALITY. There is no app amd personally I am quite happy using it from my computer.

I do agree that MyLot is a different type of social network than the other sites. You make a good point that it does take thought in this forum whereas the others are sort of brainless...by design. I also access MyLot with my computer but currently use my iPad more often as it allows me to be more mobile. I guess the App would best be suited for a smartphone where the font size needs to be larger,

@mysdiannait: I agree with you that there are no sites that match myLot in its purpose or quality but I think for those of us that are simply OBSESSED with myLot, having a optimized mobile app would be convenient. @rjbass: I know how you feel, I've tried to use it on my iPhone and it just sucks!

I would like that too, but it will never happen. That would be awesome, but MyLot can't even alphabetize the interests section or keep the site updated with the times enough. They've had this site the same since it came out, with the same complications and never improved it. An app would be so much work to keep updated and efficient.

"They've had this site the same since it came out" No, that is not the case at all. I wasn't here when it first launched but there are users who were and they will get here and leave you a link so that you too can see the original myLot. Then more recently admin started several discussions asking users for suggestions and MANY of them were implemented.

I know it seemed harsh what I said about this site. Don't get me wrong, I like MyLot just fine, but there could definitely be some improvements just to make the site somewhat easier to use. As far as the site being the same, I was only referring to what a user told me that used to frequent this site. I am very glad to hear the admin has taken suggestions into consideration. Maybe he can do it again sometime soon.

Maybe. You can see his profile here: http://www.mylot.com/GoAskAlice and also the discussions, and the suggestions, that were posted at the time.

I don't own an iP*, so it won't be 'awesome' for me :P And though I could use it, an app for Android version too is not very appealing. My smartphone(?) is based on some other OS. Apart from that, myLot works well on my current mobile and from what I know, my cell is already outdated. So why the app? Maybe for some 'cool' factors... More and more sites are offering apps for their services, and I tried a new one. Oops, the computer version was far more better! I love working on my phone, I do, but for that purpose also, original version is way better than the app. Just don't need it!

I appreciate your opinion and realize that an app may not suit everyone. I am fine with the existing site when on my iPad like right now but when on my iPhone, even with the zoom feature, MyLot is a tad to busy and the font is too small for my liking. But with that said, this is just my opinion.

Yes, a myLot app for iPhone/iPad would be awesome! It would certainly encourage me to use myLot more because I am always looking for stuff to do on my iPhone......

Is there a mobile version? I get an error when trying to get to m.mylot.com but would like to check it out. Anyone have that URL?

It might be a good idea with the increasing number of the user of mobile gadgets But so far, there's no app, and hey, so far I haven't saw any new update being implemented . I have no idea what things that keep them busy, though..

Well really it could be a great idea to have an app but I think that if Mylot wanted this than there should be an app.

Not necessary to have mylot app because you can browse it to your smart phone. Popularity than to other, mylot have own way for socializing. Like other mylotters said mylot is different from them..

I think that would be a great idea for MyLot, but given the fact that Facebook has yet to figure out how to turn iPhone users into dollars. MyLot will have a hard time figuring out this problem too.
