    At the moment we're thinking about a social network about iOS games and apps. What do you think about this idea?

    The idea is to make a social network with forums, groups, post status upgrades, chat, pm's and gaming against other members. Would you like this?

    Dont get the point, granted start one but it may take a long time for it to be busy. I see lots of retro forums or iOS forums disappear due to lack of content.

    What will it offer me which is different from well established places ? I dont want to sign up to another forum when i'm with a couple of busy established ones already

    Sorry nice idea but i think its a bit late

    TA is a big one. But my idea is to focus on playing together, play games against each other, make friends and share how to finish a level. The idea is focussing on the social aspect such as Facebook.

    It seems like you really want to do it, so do it. Don't let us stop you.

    Yes, that's true :) . But if there's no interest it isn't worth to develop it.

    Angry Birds didn't ask people if there was interest. They just did it. Same with most developers. People who visit forums are a small minority. How many people have an iOS device? How many visit this forum? I'd bet less than 2% of iOS users have heard of TouchArcade. And this is the biggest iOS forum or at least the most active.

    Do it.

    would prob need to tie it in with a social game. The social interaction aspect of mobile games are still sorely lacking

    I feel like appzap already is one, plus many devs are on Facebook so people talk about games on there.. Im not sure demand would be high enough, the mix of TA, appzap & Facebook is more than enough for me.

    Perhaps its my age but i still dont get this. On Facebook if any of my friends start posting tons of 'just got to level 20 on ....' etc i block them ! I just want to play games, cant stand it when games have twitter integration in them or facebook and posts tons.

    Call me old fashioned but i'm quite happy talking to friends about a game and the levels or posting on forums, dont really want to join up to some 'facebook for apps', forums will do me fine.
