I looked in the App Store and i did not see an app for gamefaqs. I think this site deserves an official app just to make things easier and quicker to navigate.

It's been suggested and considered before, but nothing came of it. What exactly would you want the app to do or do better than accessing the site through a browser?

This is the question that is brought up every time an app is suggested. What does having an app actually do to improve the site or the user’s ability to use the site?

other than (maybe) immediate notification, I can’t really think of much an app would do that my mobile browser can’t, and even android now can get notifications, if I’m reading the announcement correctly.

I'm not against the idea, but I think they've done an amazing job at making the mobile version of the site very user friendly. There are some gaming sites that won't even bother making a mobile version of their sites, let alone an official app.
Nonsense! That is what you speak. Nonsense... from beyond!

I think there's GameRaven if you really want a GameFAQs specific app, though it's an unofficial so it's not going to be supported or managed by the site.
Don't try to think we can understand each other. For some reason, people think that they can do that. Remember that they can't. Never completely. Never enough.

My go-to is immediate notifications

Yeah guys I’ve never really thought about why n app is important. I just sort of looked to see if they had an app for gamefaqs and when I couldn’t find one I thought it would be cool for it to have an app. I guess an app isn’t really something this site needs, it is just a forum after all and the Mobile browser is fine.

Only benefits I could see an app would have is 1. Instant notifications popping straight up on your phone without you having to open a browser and sign in to see it. 2. Quicker access to the forums, I know clicking on the browser isn’t necessarily slow but hitting an app would still be a bit faster.

Push notifications, even more gratuitous data gathering, and unblockable ads are the only reason any site "needs" an app.
