Default HBT on iPhone?

anyone know of an app for the iPhone that would allow easier viewing of HBT? I hate using safari to check the forum since you need to constantly pinch and zoom and navigation with such a small screen is awful.

I use Opera Mini. Not so much pinching.

Would be nice to have some kind of reader API (Tapatalk?) to streamline things tho.

A double-tap zooms in without having to do the reverse pinch thing, and a single tap with two fingers zooms back out.

I do a lot of browsing on the iPhone and it isn't incredible, but it works.

Double tap zoom and/or flip it sideways. 90% of the time I'm on hbt, I'm on my iPhone. The only thing that can get tedious is long posts.

I keep an eye out for interesting posts on my iPhone via rss feed in google reader. This way I can easily see new topics without having to go navigate the mobile unfriendly site.

I read HBT on my iPhone everyday, and it works fine. Yes u have to zoom in and out a lot, but you have to with any forum site. Forum boards werent designed with the tiny screens in mind.... Honestly, its no more zooming than pretty much any other "full" site!

Well, I was hoping for a forum-reading app that apparently doesn't exist. Thanks for the replies.
