"A real community of gamers"

First for Gamers is a gaming discussion board

I'm pretty sure you are in some online forums already. Forums are perfect discussion boards about any topics. First for Gamers is an innovative concept of discussion board: it's something between a forum and a livechat. It feels like a Reddit for gaming: you can live chat, post on message boards, share media fiels and link your social networks to it. In other words, it's a free platform for sharing and debate about any gaming-related topic easily, from your mobile device.

Actually, topics are open and displayed as a messaging app conversation: bubbles, profile pics and a input text box at the bottom. However, you can send text and add URL, Youtube videos, photos and even location. Share anything with gaming buddies. Get rumors about consoles and gaming release, discuss about game features, developers movements, console prices... you name it!

You can filter content by platform (xBoxOne, Android, iOS, PS4...) and by new/popular. It should include more filters and categories though. Anyway, posts can be searched by keywords or user. You can favorite threads for a quick access to them and subscribe to users to follow their posts. Obviously, you can invite friends to join the app.

First for Gamers is an orignial app concept set in a user-friendly interface. An hybrid that merges forums and social network to bring together one of the most active community: gamers. Highly recommended.

    What the hell has happened to this app? Cannot login or even create a new account. This app was incredible at launch. What's going on? Please fix this.

    Since the app no longer allows you to reset your password not login I cannot help but think support simply stopped. Couple this with the fact that before it stopped working there was no moderation nor process to be come a mod. Red robot labs you're not getting any patronage from me or my friends.
