    I’ve recently become very active on BHW and found myself more than once just naturally looking for the non existent BHW app on my phone menu for some reason before having to go on the browsers.

    I would just like to receive push notifications straight to my phone which I could slide to open so that I could instantly reply to a message for example.

    So my question is , is there an app already being developed? Has it been developed before and abandoned for certain reasons? Or has this simply just never come about as a viable idea before?

    You have time to react to notifications?

    Turn off anything like social notifications

    if it doesn’t bring an income or important.... I’ll deal with it in my time

    This was discussed 2 days ago. BHW works perfectly on mobile devices and I don't think they are going to develop a mobile app anytime soon.

    Ive always wondered this myself -- or at least re vamp the mobile version because it could be a lot better.

    Well that’s precisely my point. Some of them are to do with business and I’d prefer to get the process started on some things sooner than later and I would imagine would prefer this even more in the coming future.

    Really? I think the mobile browser is working fine as it is.

    I think so... Seems it's going to be a demand for BHW 2020.

    The mobile web version is perfectly fine there are just certain things that could never be possible that I think could greatly benefit BHW and it’s userbase, I mean push notifications alone would probably increase activity by more than 10% in perpetuity.

    This is not “ just “ a forum but a marketplace and a place to conduct business and trades, these things would heavily benefit from options that can only be developed within an app aside from my previous point in regards to an increase in activity it would seem productivity would increase too.

    As @Geasy said, this has been discussed numerous times.
    @Diamond Damien has responded to these threads in the past as well.


    From the OP: "Why is there no BHW App?"
    From the OP: "Is there an app already being developed?
    The old Topify app was removed back in 2015 as the new BHW is dynamic.

    From the OP: "Has it been developed before and abandoned for certain reasons? Or has this simply just never come about as a viable idea before?"
    Edit: The OP PMed me saying I didn't answer their questions, so I individually added their questions to the top of each quote I previously posted. The answers are in green text.

    Question Answered, Thread Closed
