Hello, I love this site! (it's the only one I have found that has a import feature, which is just mind boggling!).

But one thing I'm 'missing' is the option to view my collection/progress of games on the go.
So my question/suggestion is if it would be possible (in the future ofc) to get a mobile app for the site? Or maybe a public API so the users of the site could build their own apps and tools?

I second this. Would be awesome to get out and about and have the ability to quickly look at my collection before I possibly buy a duplicate of something.

I agree. This site has right what has really annoyed me about others. An app would just make it perfect.

A mobile app has been requested a number of times, but unfortunately, is not on my current development radar screen. The main reason is I'm not familiar with mobile development and I have a very large (and seemingly never-ending hehe) task list for the website. I would love to deliver a mobile app at some point, but it will need to be when I have time to learn the technology or if I can wrangle some help :P

That being said, I have designed the website to use a responsive design and it should scale / perform very well on mobile and tablet devices. If you have any feedback on the mobile experience as it is now, definitely let me know. I know it can be useful to access your collection / wish list on the hunt, so it should at least be able to provide that.

I just took a look at the mobile version of the site and I have to say it's one of the best phone versions of a website I have seen in a long time :)

I understand that you have a lot of work maintaining and upgrading the site, which is one of the reason that I also recommended an API, so the community could make apps and such, again I get that it isn't the first thing on your list which is fair enough, but having an API would be great in the long run ^^ (Just my opinion ofc)

But all in all, I really love the site and I can't wait to see what's coming next :D

At the moment the site is not realy useable via mobile devices. I guess because of the patreon header some elements are too far down behind the footbar. I cant add games to my list because the save button hides behind the footbar on both smartphone and tablet. Would be great if something could be done. Love the site, but i rarely use my pc, so mobile device functionality is essential.

I recently removed the Patreon header, though we do from time-to-time have things in that space, so I'll need to look into the issue you were experiencing. Generally speaking though, if you have any specific feedback on mobile, like if a page is inaccessible or what have you, please let me know and I can take care of it. I don't use the site on my phone a whole lot, it's mostly just to check if something is in my collection, so I don't regularly re-test the site on smaller screen sizes as new features are added.
