Ideal Version

  • Private messages
  • Search
  • Intercept relevant SA links (to posts, threads, forums) and display them directly instead of loading in Safari.
  • Copy post URL
  • Maintain page position on orientation change
  • Post editor with tag insertion (bold/italic/spoiler/fixed/code) and emoticon insertion
  • Post new threads
  • Set a few key SA settings in-app (e.g. 'show seen icon next to each post')
  • Populate initial app settings with SA settings counterparts (e.g. 'show avatars')
  • Note 'show avatars' only works if it's also enabled in SA user control panel.
