There is a mobile website version for the APK forum, but if you have an iPhone, the experience is probably going to be a lot better just browsing the regular version.

Note to Leon:

the app should have:
GPS hotspot locator, where you can take pics and geotag them so when other people come to your area they can see the simulated reality that some of the restaraunt and bar apps have where while you turn your phone information comes up on the screen, but that's complicated, so simple geotagged pictures would work =P

a streamlined forum section

a short but sweet video list (obviously linked to youtube) that people could use for on the go inspiration

a simple black and white page with the parkour and freerunning definitions in big print so you can show people when trying to explain it to them

an RSS feed from the homepage of APK so you can have constant updates.

AND possibly, Push notifications for new PMs or forum replies to topics that you have posted in. (obviously with the on/off option)

Awesome freaking ideas Greg!

Right now we don't have the man power to make all that come true, but we've had ideas like that in the works ever since the iPhone came out. Like many things these days, we're working on it hahaha If you've got any other ideas or would like to help out, just shoot me an email leon@americanparkour.com !

i dont know anyone with an android phone that I could test on... mac has a program that allows you to run an iphone simulator on your comp (you may have seen it, it looks and is a full functioning iphone on your desktop) to test your apps. and I have an iphone to test on lol but I'll check out programming for android.. its easy enough to port it over to iphone if/when the time comes.
