So I'm going to guess I already know the answer to this, but is anyone trying to develop a Mobile Version of BGG, either a mobile app or a mobile version of the website?

I often game when I'm not at home and it would be nice to be able to log my plays as they occur, often by the time i get home I forget the details, or sometimes its weeks later before I remember to log at all. Unfortunately the desktop version of the sight is difficult to add info to from my Android phone, though this is not the case for all website, I think its related to the way the pop-ups for adding info show up.

I understand its difficult and probably not profitable, but I figured it couldn't hurt to ask.

Try this:

It won't do everything but logging plays, finding rules, and discussion on rules is pretty quick with the iOS app. I haven't tried the other versions.

There is an unofficial BGG app for Android that allows logging of plays.

I use it all the time. It lets you look at rankings and stuff too. Pretty handy if you are in a store browsing games and want more info. The drawback with the play logging is you can't have it post to twitter like you can here.

OK that worked, I tried seaching for "BGG Mobile" and "Board Game Geek" neither of which brought this up. Now that I installed via Link if I search for BGG or BoardGameGeek it works. Oh welll. Thanks Guys!
