You need to get used to it bro. Eventually you'll start liking it. I felt just like you initially. But now I love browsing DDF on mobile browser (I use CM Browser). Create a shortcut on your home screen for the DDF website and you'll be good to go, if you are not aware of how please refer to the thread I posted in this section. For the equivalent of timeline feature on the app, you can use New posts option on the browser version. Please try and you'll not regret.
And further more i would like to add, there is a major upgrade planned for our website which will make things even more easier. We just want to spoil your excitements, so keep guessing, stay tuned and we will do changes eventually.
I know being an oversmart yet talented dude you often end up sharing your knowledge when it is not even required - not to take my words negatively but i am saying the truth since you just want to show off you have some knowledge (bheja)! You show off whenever you see something we want to share with members. Not everyone "so called techie" like you so we explain them, if you have problem in that - just stay away for the better.
Anyways, what i was saying is not about XF 2 core features but we are customising and using add-ons which are specifically coded for our website only. We have spent hundreds of dollars in those and out come was so good that one can believe only after checking those!
