Android app
 
A lot of forums are starting to create android apps which include a mobile formatted version of their forum for users to use on the go. While I can view RF in the browser on my X10 it would be sweet to have a nicely formatted mobile version.

Is anyone affiliated with the site familiar with that type of programming??

ya, would be nice
i can view RF on my iphone browser but it's difficult to move around...a mobile app would be fantastic

and i often wondered why there is no official Raptor app...afterall, there is a Leaf app...it would be a great way to expand the Raptor fanbase

are you listening MLSE ?

Sorry dude, I'm not familiar.

We'd probably have to ask lang.

Def a good way to expand and get more members for the forum.

Very good idea. This would be great!

This idea is a waste of time....If your phone cant access web pages....then dont try and access them from your phone

I think you are confused about what an app is. An app is an application that optimizes the experience a phone user can have on a website (such as this one). For example, viewing a full website on a small mobile screen is difficult and slow. Having an RF specific app could highlight new threads, your inbox, quick search, quick post, etc and leave out all the other stuff to optimize the experience for the smart phone users on RF.

+1 to this idea

I could certainly use this app on my android

Nice description! :dancing:

No one said it doesn't work in the browser...it just isn't as nice as an app would be.

Too bad we don't have any android programmers on the site :(

hmmm... what browsers are you using, guys ?

Developing a whole app would be a lot of work for people who mostly do this for nothing.

What they should do, however, is install the TapATalk plugin. Then everyone who has a TapATalk app on their mobile device will be able to view a version that is better formatted for their device. It also means that the folks at RF don't have to make an Android app, an Apple app, a Blackberry app, etc.

I'm using Tapatalk for other forums, its quite handy. I'm guessing this is still a long way off

Not sure is this helpfull at all, but i found some websites and apps that help to create apps. So maybe we could do it?

Seems pretty straight forward to me, should be fairly easy to make mobile version of RF

box92 03-26-2012 02:06 AM

if someone knows how to make it, it would be super useful

I think one of our Admins could do it, because they have the access to everything in RF according to the website i posted above it only takes minutes to do it.
