Trust me there is not much out there
No arguments, I'm a huge PHPBB user and I agree that vBulletin is the only one out there that can handle the volume. I'm looking at moving a couple of my hosting customers over to vBulletin from PHPBB because PHPBB cannot handle the number of posts and threads.

What does Cruise Critic use? They have huge volume and use TapaTalk. The board runs smoothly without delays in loading or in searching. They also have nice features like seeing your own posts or your own threads. I'd love to see something like that!

Not trying to offend, just trying to help. I believe Tapatalk is a $5.99 app?

They use Vbulletin and they also use the same search system we do (at my reccomendation) but it doesn't do well through tapatalk. They have much more updated servers which is why they are running better at the moment but they have certainly had their issues at times, I have consulted with them on their tech issues. Our traffic is higher
Ours will be free so I'm not sure what the issue is.

So would you rather have a free mobile app OR one that cost 19.95 BUT I'll throw in 2 Sham Wow's AND a free set of Ginsu knives?

I had the new servers all ready to go and we ran into an issue with our host and the new servers.
I'm not sure what is going to happen. Very dissapointing after all the work that went in to it

LOL - I'll pay $39.95 if you throw in free shipping and a Keurig!

Good luck with the upgrades - I appreciate the way you are taking on the challenges.

I see the server upgrades happened last evening. The website is really fast now! That is great. Any news on a mobile client for iPhone / iPad / Android?
