One feature is I need the ability to bookmark where I stop reading
during the journey or trip.
A few contributors keep replying with quoted message ate up my mobile data
usage significantly especially this thread is getting a long discussion is
hard to read on a small screen and I don't use email clients on iPhone.
Forum is useful when we need share photos and video.
