well I agree with some of you guys who says there is no need for it. The reason the old app collapsed was because there wasn't much smart phones users and now everyone has got one, and personally as an individual I barely go on the PC besides when I am uploading any image. Oh one more thing LPF should have a gallery with different laser categories. While google searching I see beautiful lasers from LPF but I don't see any whilst I am the forum I hope youse know what I mean.
c0ld's attempt at doing an app wasn't that long ago. A year, maybe less. So the number of users with smartphones likely hasn't increased much at all.
For the most part it's safe to say that LPFers are somewhat tech savvy to begin with, so I can't see increased smartphone adoption driving the numbers up.
The overall pool of users is also relatively small. While there are probably ~30k members, there are really only about 1000-2000 at most who are genuinely active. I doubt that even if 10% of those adopted a paid for LPF app, the revenue at $1-$5 per app would justify the expenses in terms of support.
