Wouldn't a touchArcade app just be great

As title says. Someone with silky skills, please make..
I go on this site every day and every night for at least two hours apiece (understatement) and mostly in the night, I'm on my touch. the only thing is navigating around is a bit of a bitch. Wouldn't it be great if we had an app (icon already exists) that we could just tap to enter the site, but instead of entering a full monitor sized layout we were introduced to an iPhone-size-ease-of-use interface.
Advantage of having an app and not the site to have a mobile version would be the ability to place that cool space invaders icon in our docks/homescreen , and possibly have the ability to write back to a thread whilst offline or something. Maybe you can think of better reasons, but that's enough for me :P

Someone PLEASE make this, but no charge if possible..

I would love to see it happen (I'll offer to make a UI too :3).

This is in the wrong section of the forum as it isn't a 'game'.
This has been discussed here, however I really don't have a problem viewing this sites main blog and forum on my Touch. Not worth the bother if you ask me.

Damn it.. Can it be moved..? I didn't really plan this one out too well. forgive me plz ..
Still, what the hell, not going to hurt anyone.
I want that icon in my dock. And the awesomeness it will bring me. Yes it's okay on the browser, but it's a bit annoying at times.. at the very least I would like bigger forum page navigaters. they are TINY on the touch..

I can more than understand if the prospective developer didn't want to pay and sign up to the Dev Program, but a web app would more than suffice. As long as it had the reviews in a good searchable order, with You Tube videos.
I like the free AppVee native app, but the reviewer's voice irritates me for some reason.
