    Hi Jordan,

    Love the app, makes for good night time reading before bed. I downloaded the app for my i-pod quit a while back and it always crash’s after about 3-5 mins of browsing different threads, always forced to re-open & search all over again for the thread I was reading. Any update comming out to sort out any bugs that it may/may not have?

    Good job Jordan! thank u!

  3. Feb. 16, 10:22am

    I got this for my iPhone a few days ago when the site gave me a notification, and it’s a million times easier to use the forums than it is using Safari.

  4. Feb. 16, 5:12am

    Works good so far! Good job man (y)

  5. Feb. 16, 2:13am

    I’ve been using this app for a while now and I can’t express how much better it is for the forums than using the browser on my iPhone 4. Great work! Highly recommend this app for any GTP Forum members with a compatable phone.

  6. Feb. 15, 4:46pm

    So this is just an app with a built in RSS feed… I can access this site on my iPhone, iPad and via the multitude of RSS feed readers I have. What does this app do that is BETTER than the actual site?

    • Feb. 15, 10:59pm

      The app is a lot more than just the news blog, its primary functionality provides easy interaction with the forums, as the post explains above (there’s no RSS involved here, by the way). Download it and try it out, it’s free…

  7. Feb. 15, 2:38pm

    Just saw Jordan’s reply that Blackberry will be supported later this year. Thanks again! Just started using this site and dont have an iphone or ipad…

  8. Feb. 15, 2:21pm

    What about the PSP go? will this work as

    As a side-note: This is when I got the e-mail notification to this news story-
    Tue, Feb 15, 2011 at 1:04 PM..

    First reply I see in comment:
    February 14th, 2011 at 3:44 pm.. —

    So why does it take 20+ hours to get e-mail notifications about news stories on GTPlanet?

    This has nothing to do with this particular story, but I might as well cancel e-mail update notifications. I could literally get them faster if I put it in a United States Postal service mailbox snail-mail and lived close by.

    It’s been this way since e-mail update notification on GTPlanet news stories was available. I’m getting them via G-Mail on a normal 20mb/sec premium broadband connection. Anyway… just reporting that.

    • Feb. 15, 3:54pm

      Email digests of the blog content are sent once every 24 hours. The service is powered by Google’s FeedBurner.

    • Feb. 16, 11:46am

      Well at least I know why now. Thanks for the answer. Wish there was some way to get faster updates though.

  10. Feb. 15, 1:18pm

    Great job! We’ve been waiting eagerly for this and its great. Thanks so much. Now I can be on GTP all the time!

  11. Feb. 15, 12:41pm

    why not blackberry!?

  12. Feb. 15, 10:55am

    This app is just too brilliant! The only related thing i can ask for is better photo support, because although there is some kind of button i hit yesterday that cleverly showed me all tge pics on a page, finding it didnt actually make much sense…

  13. Feb. 15, 10:14am

    Good work on the android app, I browse the site a lot on the move and this cuts the amount of data I’m using and is a lot easier to navigate with. Thanks Jordan.

  14. Feb. 15, 8:57am

    This is pretty cool. I like it.

    THanks for making this guys. IT’s a bit easier browsing through here on my mobile now. I Appreciate it.

  15. Feb. 15, 8:52am

    Great apps, for a great website :D

  16. Feb. 15, 8:30am

    Great app, works great on my itouch. Thanks.

  17. Feb. 15, 8:20am

    Great App Jordan!

    I use my phone a lot to check GTP and this certainly helps a lot.

    Thanks :)

  18. Feb. 15, 7:43am

    great idea! love it now can access it without ridiculous load times that safari has :)

  19. Feb. 15, 7:37am

    Nice app!

  20. Feb. 15, 7:27am

    any luck on blackberry apps?

  21. Feb. 15, 7:19am

    So no SymbianOS support?

  22. Feb. 15, 7:15am

    Thanks for this!

  23. Feb. 15, 7:06am

    Thanks for getting this developed Jordan. It works great on my Nexus One!

  24. Feb. 15, 6:38am


  25. Feb. 15, 5:20am

    Just reading this on my iPad gtplanet app:) works great, excellent idea! Keep up the amazing work you do guys!

  26. Feb. 15, 5:06am

    Nice work on the app. I was finding it odd there was no “back” button on a news entry (like in the forum), you had to click the GTPlanet logo on the top.

  27. Feb. 15, 4:44am

    Hi Jordan,

    I downloaded the app this morning for my low end samsung running android 2.1 (no sign of a 2.2 update yet :( ) and when I try to run it, it opens and attempts to contact the remote site before returning an error. The error is “The remote server sent an unparsable result. This could be the result of the forum software plugin being outdated.” Has anyone seen this before, or is it a case of not being able to make use of the app until I get an update to 2.2?


    • Feb. 15, 1:23pm

      I’m sorry, I believe you will need 2.2 to run the app.

    • Feb. 16, 4:11am

      I have a Samsung Epic running 2.1 and i was able to use this app perfectly fine. Try re-downloading it, maybe that will solve your issue.

  28. Feb. 15, 4:40am

    I got a lifetime ban, so I guess no app for me.

  29. Feb. 15, 3:35am

    I dowloaded it for my Ipad 2 weeks ago, and it works great! Very simple, clean, and facile to use.

    P.S. How come there weren’t any announcements back then?

  30. Feb. 15, 3:29am

    App, is super, UI and interface is really smart, I can view pics on the iphone although some are saying you can’t..? Only small thing is the photomode competition poll photos don’t display and only show the link :(

  31. Feb. 15, 3:19am

    Thanks for this, works great on my HTC Desire, and looks fab.

  32. Feb. 15, 3:18am

    Ok, after surfing the forum section for a bit, the scrolling is better over there. However, it’s not very smooth in the news section, like when you’re trying to scroll down to make a comment on a news post, like this one.

  33. Feb. 15, 2:34am

    Checking it out right now (iPad), scrolling isnt very smooth at all. But I like the concept so far!

  34. Feb. 15, 2:24am

    Posting from my iPod to say thank you, the ui is great and everything is much faster

  35. Feb. 15, 2:13am
    Marko Le Rosso

    Blackberry version please!

  36. Feb. 15, 2:11am

    Thanks! Love the android app! I see myself using this quite a bit!

  37. Feb. 15, 1:12am

    Please make a webos version!!!!!

  38. Feb. 15, 12:28am


    This is awesome man! Downloading now. :)

  39. Feb. 14, 11:20pm

    For a quick second the title, at a glance, made me think that an update annouced b-spec control through an app =P

  40. Feb. 14, 9:33pm

    This app is great! I use it on my iPad while I’m playing GT5, couldn’t be happier. +5

  41. Feb. 14, 9:10pm

    Awesome app!! Thanks to Jordan and the devs!

  42. Feb. 14, 8:56pm

    Really enjoying the app Jordan!

  43. Feb. 14, 8:08pm

    Nice, just downloaded. Works better than some of the other apps that I have for other forums.

  44. Feb. 14, 6:55pm

    I’m using the app on my iPad right now!!!

  45. Feb. 14, 6:48pm


  46. Feb. 14, 6:29pm

    any chance to get it for the Palm? WebOs?

    • Feb. 14, 10:53pm

      I beleive that is lowest on there list. I feel for you I used to have a palm pre. Great phone but nobody develops anything for it. )= thats why I got an android.

  47. Feb. 14, 6:20pm

    No love for the blackberry :(

  48. Feb. 14, 5:56pm

    swwweeeeettttt!!!!! ive been waiting for an app like this since i got my android! thank you soo much jordan and the premium guys!

    being installed as i type….eekkkkkk!

  49. Feb. 14, 5:52pm

    Thanks, works great on my iPad so far. (Only issue I’ve found so far is that those of us with animated .gif files for our avatars only get the first frame of the .gif presented).

  50. Feb. 14, 5:51pm

    I’m having problems with this app. It seems to consume much memory and this makes it crash quite frequently. Also, there seems to be some delay or lag when scrolling up or down a page.

    Sometimes, using Safari on my iPod Touch, I also get “out of memory” problems but this only occurs when I open too many tabs.

    I suspect that there is a memory leak in this app a so I will stick to Safari in the meantime. Still, it’s nice to see an app from GTPlanet.

  51. Feb. 14, 5:43pm

    Thank you for not forgetting us android users.

  52. Feb. 14, 5:39pm

    Judging by the pictures, it almost looks like what the website looks like in my device. I’ll get it anyways. :)

    • Feb. 14, 6:49pm

      Yes, the blog will look the same as it does in your mobile browser. The app primarily introduces a new way to interact with the forums.

  53. Feb. 14, 5:22pm

    How’bout making it for Symbian / S60?

  54. Feb. 14, 5:16pm

    Awesome app. At least i dont sit in front of the computer now as that leads to too much time wasted.

  55. Feb. 14, 5:16pm

    How about one for Symbian?

  56. Feb. 14, 5:13pm

    ive had this app for about 1 week… it is my new favorite! GREAT APP!

  57. Feb. 14, 5:11pm

    It’s a great app usin it on my iPad right now :)

  58. Feb. 14, 5:10pm

    Been using it for a few days now. I love it!

  59. Feb. 14, 5:02pm

    Good work folks. It’s so much faster than trying to use either Safari of Opera…….great job :)

  60. Feb. 14, 4:59pm

    I’ve been using the app for a couple weeks or so now on my iPhone (it turned up in a search for Gran Turismo in the App Store), and it is a little nicer for viewing the news pages, but much better for the forums. Thanks!

  61. Feb. 14, 4:57pm

    Sweet, downloading now!!

  62. Feb. 14, 4:56pm

    This is good news!


  63. Feb. 14, 4:52pm

    It’s about time! I was hoping for something like this. :D

    I was moments away from harassing Jordan for Tapatalk support.

  64. Feb. 14, 4:43pm

    I’ve been using the iPhone app for a while and it makes browsing and posting on the forums much easier and faster than using safari on the phone. Good work Jordan.

  65. Feb. 14, 4:38pm

    Great app. This will make it so much more accessible and portable. Thanks.

  66. Feb. 14, 4:24pm

    Awesome job! downloading now

  67. Feb. 14, 4:18pm

    I got it and it’s very good! Great job guys! the only thing is that it is impossible to view pictures on the forums (ie. photomode).

  68. Feb. 14, 4:18pm

    Will there be an app for Windows Phone users?

    • Feb. 14, 4:23pm

      Unfortunately, no, a Windows version of the app is not in development at this time.

  69. Feb. 14, 4:17pm

    My phones Windows 7. :(

    Got an Ipod touch though.

  70. Feb. 14, 4:16pm


  71. Feb. 14, 4:12pm

    Sweet! Do you think there’ll be a way to implement the Chatroom into the iPhone/iPad apps? That’d be just amazing.

    • Feb. 14, 7:17pm


  72. Feb. 14, 4:04pm

    Now all I need is a half decent phone…

  73. Feb. 14, 4:00pm

    the android app wont close if you exit on the news page. you have to go to forums then exit. other than it works great! – HTC incredible

  74. Feb. 14, 4:00pm

    No Blackberry support?

    • Feb. 14, 4:01pm

      BlackBerry devices should be supported later this year.

  75. Feb. 14, 3:58pm

    been waiting on this for a while.

    I’m gonna download it with my iPhone :)

    thanks bud

  76. Feb. 14, 3:57pm

    LOL! when I was reading the title to fast I tought the app for B-Spec control was launched :P

    • Feb. 15, 8:00pm

      HAHA same here! I almost pissed my pants :-)

  77. Feb. 14, 3:56pm

    Got the app before the update, because Im sad like that lol. Already getting used to it, and enjoying it more than using ‘Safari’. Thanks for your efforts again Jordan!

  78. Feb. 14, 3:55pm

    Just downloaded for my Iphone, looks nice.

  79. Feb. 14, 3:55pm

    cool. i just ordered my first android device the sprint evo shift 4g, cant wait to try the app out.

  80. Feb. 14, 3:54pm

    I am using this app now and it works fine. Thank you!

  81. Feb. 14, 3:50pm

    WOW! Jordan you have outdone yourself! The app is GREAT! No errors or crashes so far. The UI is REALLY slick and easy to navigate. AWESOME!

  82. Feb. 14, 3:49pm

    Hey Jordan congratulations on this new apps! You defenitely keep making gtplanet the best website dedicated to the GT series!

    • Feb. 14, 10:54pm

      He undoubtedly does.

  83. Feb. 14, 3:45pm

    While I applaud any development for the Android platform, this app seems a bit pointless when the forum already renders perfectly on the Android webkit browser.

    • Feb. 14, 3:57pm

      I think you will find this native app considerably faster and easier to use than the regular site within the Android browser.

    • Feb. 14, 4:23pm

      Yess im always on this site with my phone

    • Feb. 14, 4:48pm

      I just tried the app on my HD2 with android 2.3 and it works well, still i prefer browsing the homepage with the Dolphin browser (full flash support for video’s and such, and a fully rendered webpage as if it was on a desktop)
      But for the forums this app is very usefull, its to much zooming in and out and scrolling around with a normal browser. great app! thnx allot!

    • Feb. 14, 4:59pm

      At first I thought along these lines – but after a few days of use I’ve found I really like the app. I’ve been using it for a few weeks now (it has unofficially been out for awhile).

  84. Feb. 14, 3:44pm

    Too bad I just got rid of my Android phone. :(

    • Feb. 14, 3:51pm

      Thank you Jordan for a great app. It’s the most used app on my iPad.

    • Feb. 15, 5:14am

      I can t post à reply on android apps …

    • Feb. 26, 1:46am

      Same it is a must use app
