    Lightbulb Mobile App for Forums (and maybe a Smite app too)

    The mobile version of the forums website is a little lacking. It's far from bad, but it would be nice to have a dedicated app to use, with some improved functionality. I know the forums are still under development, but in the future, this should definitely be something that is looked into.

    Also, all of the apps that I have found (on google play store) for smite in general are pretty out of date or ugly. I'm not sure if it's an issue with HiRez not updating their API's, or the developers being lazy, but again, a nice clean app to browse Gods, items, the player base, and maybe mess with builds would be really great.

    Thoughts? Suggestions for what should be included in the App(s)?

    According to MikalMirkas, this might be rather easy.

    It's pretty cheap for what it offers.

    Lol, pretty sure those screen shots are from like iOS 4 or something. But I'm sure the stuff still works.

    It would be really great to hear a reply from HiRez if there is any intent for them to develop an official app, or if they intend for the community to design their own. If users wanted to make their own, I would love to know how to get access to APIs. I know you can apply for apps related to the game and such, but I don't think that exists for the forums.

    I agree! As a daily user of the forums, it would be nice to have an app, or atleast an improved mobile version of the website

    Earlier on smitefire i talked about the same thing. We tend to use these forums more than facebook , twitter or anything. These are just as important as our email updates. A mobile app would be great. Whether it will a forum specific app or a general smite app where we can also look at official twitch streams and stuff is upto hirez to decide.
    Fun and Heart

    So what else would be nice in a mobile app for smite?

    So far I've seen:

    • Browse Gods
    • Items
    • Player base search
    • Build manipulation
