So far with the high demand and request volume of an application for the site, the site is fairly new but it is very obvious we are headed in a great direction. Here is the totals for the price of the most common used forum applications. Obviously all of these will get badged and be used for this forum specifically.

***Update*** July 9, 2011
I thought you should know we are about $250 away from getting the application. Thanks for all the donations. According to tapatalk, it will take up to ten days for the app to get made and sent to us. We will have a donate version to assist paying for dev phones and a free version. Chances are there will be nothing different. Thanks for all of the support, if we havent added you to the list let us know!

I would like to discuss the disadvantages and the benefits of each before we proceed further, we are very close to being able to attain the application, but lets discuss the pro's and cons of each.

TapaTalk Pros and cons:
  • Support has seemed scarce with trying to contact them
  • They are based in China, we have a language barrier.
  • $1000 for the initial application, no source to add any edits, analytics etc.
  • $35/hr for the additional above, so anything above $1000 is possible
  • No idea if moderation is possible or to what extent

ForumRunner Pros and cons:
  • Support has been frequent with answering questions.
  • US based, makes it easier to for us to contact support
  • No source, but has the same features
  • Any privileged user can Moderate with ease.
  • Seems you can do everything TapaTalk can.
  • Excess money can go towards give aways and another phone.

Now I am not trying to sell this here, its just $1000 for an app icon at this point if we really wanted to do it, this is going to be a RootzWiki exclusive application, which is nice by all means. So in conjunction with the previously stated, we want to make sure that when we have a fundraiser containing users money it will be used for the right thing. Integrity is our goal and as a site looking into possibly becoming a business and venue for developers to attain phones with ease, we want to make sure our users and customers are 100% satisfied.

Please take into consideration either way it is a wain for the pro Android Super User.

For those wondering, a $10 or more contribution will give you a supporting member badge.

So if I donate now will the app be free? I've seen some forums that charge for their apps. I'm happy to donate, but as a broke college student I can't really afford to donate more than once.

Yes, that is the case at the moment, it is just something people have been asking for.
