However (maybe I'm just blind) I didn't see a way to respond to a post (e.g. to post this reply from the iPhone instead of the PC browser where I am now).
Maybe I need to buy the non-free version of TouchBB to post?
Thanks for the tip & for setting this up!
*** edited after further experimentation. It seems I have the option to post a new message or reply to existing threads in certain forums (for example in Backpacking/Hiking), but not in others (for example, this one). But anyway the message browsing sure is nicer than using Safari with the constant pinching & panning.

and static screen shots here: http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/touchbb- ... 58253?mt=8
Support forums for the app are located here: http://www.messageforums.net/support.php
What I couldn't find is whether you use the regular URL for the forum, or, if you have to add "touchbb.php" at the end of the forum URL to access the script (see link in my last post). At the very least, I'm assuming you need to enter the exact URL for the forum (rather than the HST homepage) into the app settings.
Also a stupid question, but did you try to access the forum through the app itself, or with Safari? I believe you must access through the app in order for it to work.
There are a couple of other options out there, like TapATalk, that I can try if this doesn't work.
I should also add that TouchBB only works with iPhone. Others, like TapATalk, work cross platform.
