New Mobile Version of the Forum

Postby Scepcop » 03 Oct 2012, 18:53

I've installed an iPhone app for this forum to make browsing easier from an iPhone. If you are on an iPhone, it should redirect you to the iPhone version. If any of you try it out, let me know how it looks. The URL to it is:

touchbb.php

However, it cannot be viewed in a regular browser, only on an iPhone.

I will work on installing an Android app as well.

I don't know. I don't see one. Can a blackberry use an android app?

Most people use android or iphone right?

It is true that blackberry has been falling behind, though there are still a lot of them out there! No, they are not compatible with android.

Has anyone tested the Android app link at the top yet?

The thing is, it is outdated and will not be supported soon. To install the new version would require a lot of time editing files. I'm not sure it's worth the trouble. How many of you here browse this forum from an Android? It would be good to get an idea.

If the demand is there, I will pay someone to do it for me. But I need to know first what the demand for it is.

Ok I've installed the Android App. I paid a friend to do all the tedious code editing for me. If you are on an Android, try the Android app link above, just below the top banner. Let me know how it works. Thanks.

The forum works perfectly on my new Android tablet. Just so ya know. ;) I didn't even have to install an app or do anything other than type in the regular URL into the tablet web browser. Thanks!

For some reason, the mobile version of this forum doesn't work on Androids anymore. So for now, you can use this free mobile app to view this forum in a mobile friendly format, and other forums as well.

I don't have an iPhone to test the iPhone app on this forum, but it should still work fine.

Does it still work now? For some reason, I can't get the mobile app here to work on my Android. I'm sure it still works for iPhone though, because it uses a different app for that.

I tried the apple app on my ipad. keep getting the error "The server could not be reached" - but I am connected to the internet. Not sure what I'm supposed to do to fix it.

Are any of you on a mobile device? If so, does the mobile version of this forum still work? If so, does it redirect there automatically? Or do you have to click the Mobile link above? Thanks.

Update:

Hi all,
I've just installed a new mobile theme in this forum. Check it out.

index.php?mobile=mobile

It will detect your mobile device and switch you over to the theme. You can always return to the desktop version by clicking "Switch to full style".

I put a link to the mobile theme at the top of the forum. You can also scroll to the bottom of the forum and click "Switch to mobile style" to get to it as well.

Let me know if the mobile theme works ok.
