We already have a great mobile site, and we're already working on a responsive update to Neowin which will support all devices from large displays down to mobile (including the forums).

The single best thing about Tapatalk, IMO, is the notifications you get when someone quotes your post. 

 

I've resigned myself to Neowin not supporting it now though :p

We should be able to do that as well, like if it's a tile or something.. don't see why this shouldn't be possible.

That would be quite simple to emulate if you set up the email account you use for Neowin on your phone. I get lots of notifications sent to my phone from here. Just go to your notifications options and select the email check box for whatever notifications you want to receive on your phone.

I think Neowin already supports this (at least, there's an option in the user CP that I've just turned on). There's just no way of getting native push notifications.

Not a bad idea. I just usually find myself getting annoyed when I get e-mailed notifications like that. It's not really any different to getting push notifications, so it's all psychological.

One thing though and I forgot this!! Even if this forum had it it would be rendered useless once IPB upgrades hit. They (the upgrades) often disable addons and then the thing needs to be redone. For some reason IPB can't upgrade without some things going wrong :(

Holy crap, I came in this section to start a thread about this. It looks like I am not the only one who would love this. If money is needed, I will be willing to donate to get this working.

You should be able to use the Windows 8.1 and Windows Phone live tile API to do Notifications so long as the user stays logged in on Internet Explorer.
