Fig - Native Discourse client for iOS

You probably want to post this in the Fig app developer’s forum.


Ah… thanks for the hint :slight_smile:

How do we get the fig app to play “domain protected” Vimeo videos that are native to the discourse forum? Meaning you can play them in a browser in the forum, but when you go to fig you can’t? Thanks

Thanks for this! One problem that I’m experiencing is when I go to Bookmarks, they are empty. The personal messages I’ve bookmarked don’t show up. See comparisons below.

Hmm, it seems Google analytics does not work for users using this app. Is there a way to get this working for the app?

This discussion has not been civil and has remained highly critical and attacking of the developer. This kind of discussion will not be tolerated here. All infringing discussion and its related posts have been removed.


Is there a development timeline for this (really cool) application? :grin:

I noticed how the last update to the application was in July 2020.


I tried getting in contact through the developer’s forum, but it appears as though he put it in “read-only” mode when this reply was created. Around the time of that reply’s submission, it had been nearly two months since somebody had posted something.

From there, I tried to get in contact VIA the official email addresses, but I never received a response.

Does the developer read this topic? I love his application, but there’s a bug that I desperately need help with.

Thanks in advance! :heart:


Just as an update, I tried contacting the official “Fig” Twitter account:

I haven’t received a response yet. I’m going to try contacting the developer’s Twitter account too:

Wish me luck!


I was wondering if it is possible to get a license to have my Discourse community on the app store as a standalone app? I believe many people would be interested in that.


You don’t need a license. There are several communities that have standalone apps on the AppStore


May I know how is it possible to create a standalone app connected to my discourse community?


Yes, there are ways to do it for free. Fig probably isn’t what you’re looking for though.


Did you manage to get any reply?

Unfortunately, no. I never received a reply.


Hello all,

I launched Fig just as the COVID-19 pandemic began, and since then, due to personal and professional reasons, never really been able to put in the same dedicated effort I was putting in it. Life and work kept throwing challenges, and I kept thinking that when I freed up, that I would put more time and resources into it but that never really materialized.

At this point, I am looking to move Fig into a new home, to someone that can build upon the great deal of work that went into this.

To this day, I continue to get kind remarks about the app, with many reaching out for white label opportunities and other interesting ideas.

If you are interested in acquiring Fig, please contact me at:


Well I can say the app has been greatly helpful in getting push notifications, so thanks!


Wow! I’m glad to see that you’re back! I have two questions…

  1. How much would it cost to acquire Fig?

  2. What do you plan on doing with the dedicated forum for Fig? As mentioned in one of my previous replies, it was put into “read-only” mode about a year ago and has laid abandoned ever since. Despite that, it’s still online. Do you plan on shutting it down soon?

Thank you for all of the hard work you put into Fig! It’s been occasionally mentioned in the topic linked below. :blush:
