Discourse is the 100% open source discussion platform built for the next decade of the Internet. It works as:

- a mailing list
- a discussion forum
- a long-form chat room

The application provides:

- A central spot to view all notifications, unread counts and new counts from your forums
- Real time push notifications for officially hosted Discourse forums
- Authentication via Safari for quicker access to your sites

Why can’t I stay logged in?

Super simple app interface.
Which is fine.
But the reason it drops from 4 or 5 stars to a 2 is because my login doesn’t persist. It behaves as if I am a brand new user every time app opens. That might be fine on a desktop/laptop web browser. Bit in a mobile experience? Unacceptable.

I’m deleting this app, and just going back to using Chrome.

Does what it needs to do

IMO it is not a problem that the app opens a web View for you to interact with discourse itself. Discourse provides such a solid mobile browsing experience anyway that building a native app which would improve upon what the mobile web version does would require a ton more work than most people realize. I think that managing notifications and providing a unified location for accessing the discourse instances that you follow is a perfect sweet spot for this app and so far it has served that role well.


Just a Web View

The only useful thing this app provides is notifications. When you tap a forum it literally just opens a Safari View Controller and calls it a day. I wish time was spent making this a real native app.
