But I'm confused: if you have a data plan, why not just use your browser to load the talktennis webpage like you do on your regular computer?
how would a mobile app change things?
A mobile app is customized for a smaller screen and will have better navigation between screens and a good font size and frame for reading, i.e. you don't have to zoom in and out and/or possibly scroll sideways to read messages. Furthermore, an app such as Tapatalk might have links to all your favorite message boards, i.e. Talk Tennis, an MMA forum, an Android forum, etc. If you read forums frequently, it makes the experience so much better!
