It could be done, But it's one or thing to have to worry about on ~Z~'s end. Unless Railroadfan got known in more states and by far more railfans, It wouldn't be worth attempting.

Is it even worth making an app for something like this anymore? Seems like many social media platforms have been phasing out their apps lately in favor of browser-based hosting instead.

Right-o. I updated the message board software, and it seems to load a lot better on mobile phones than the version did in 2019. Not planning to make an app for the site, but thanks for the suggestion.
