    Aruba.com vs Facebook

    So here is my thought...
    Many people have Facebook on their smart phone and can look at it quickly and easily. Making comments is done with ease because of the ability of opening up the app. However, with Facebook the questions and answers are always the same!! On Aruba.com each thread is categorized so it is easier for people to look things up. Usual questions are restaurants and on aruba.com it is much easier to go back and read people's comments.
    So my question or suggestion is why doesn't aruba.com community forum have an app which would lend me and I am sure others to post on a more regular basis.
    Time to update this forum

    I also just downloaded the app but there is nothing for the community forum. I think it should be its own app and you can just click on it and you are at the forum right away. Make it easy so ppl will use it.

    It is not on the Aruba App and I do not know why.
    However on your device go to www.aruba.com/forum and then bookmark it to your home screen. Mine is on my home screen. It is in the “social folder”. I have it circled.
    I sent a message off to webmaster asking about forum on the app.

    Honestly, it frustrates me to access the forum on my phone or any tablet device. I generally only use a laptop or PC unless there is a mod emergency
