would you use one?
What would it do? I mean i can set my home page to TPU if i want instant access
vbulletin mobile app. Allows far easier access to forum when on a smartphone
yup, be alot more easy at work. what kinda of features? Oh can you have the app be stored on to an SD card.. for those with low onboard mem. TY
I don't see the benefit in that, i'm on 4g and like i said i can set TPU as homepage so practically instant access, just need to wake the screen & hit "web" & presto! Could be beneficial for person's on slower network i guess? Am i missing something else
It would need to have some noticeable advantage's/feature's for me to be truly interested, sry W1zz need more info
Browsers work fine for me.
Most android apps geared for forums,websites, and such, seem to be no more than links.
And, I create them in the browsers.
Just my opinion.
Edit: Unless, I am missing where you are going with the idea...
not sure myself, but at this time this will be for the main site, not the forums
I would mind one. As it stands I kinda don't like the mobile lay out how it is. I switch to desktop mode on my phone its slower but easier to navigate of their was a nice mobile app for TPU I'd use it.
I'd definitely use it but without the forums seems incomplete.
It would help for people like me who can't have full access while at work.
Maybe, some type of widget that is switchable for things like reviews, news, recent posts, pm notifications, new downloads, important info, links, etc.?
I could make use of an App on Android.
Android for sure! Gotta have my TPU out and about!
IF there was going to be one Android is the logical choice for launch...
those who don't have time to check TPU during daily routine they will appreciate mobile app.
I say if you're going to do it, no app. Just make an equivilent of mobile for the forums. Installing 3rd party software to participate in a website is asinine. The only exception is if the app could do something important web browsers can't be made to do.
All smartphones with a browser can access a website. If you go the app route, you'd have to make no less than three versions using three different languages (Java for Android, WPF/C# for Windows Phone, and Xcode/C for iPhone) and that's a lot of work.
you should enable tapatalk support. TONS of people use tapatalk now.
athlonX2 asked about it a few years ago here on tpu in fact with a decent response.. http://www.techpowerup.com/forums/showthread.php?t=129442
and i got XS to do it 2 years ago... http://www.xtremesystems.org/forums/showthread.php?258606-Tapatalk-now-set-up-on-XS
yeah would defo use an android vrsion thats the way to go , would come in handy when not in front of ma computer
What's wrong with the current mobile version?
It works great on my not-so-smart phone. The lightweight version of the forums works great too.
Ford is right, the app should be web based so it works on most devices. Also, why exclude Windows Phone in the poll?
marketing value. people install lots of apps, they dont install many websites
Fine, then the app is a single browser control that opens the website. Other devices can just visit it manually.
No Windows Phone 7 version, then no thanks.
Dear W1zz, please allow posting of polls inside the thread instead of the redirect to the front page. Im sure you can sacrifice a few page hits for this! Thanks!
From this perspective it is a great idea.
I can see a General Nonsense app making you lots of money.
TPU on the go? YES THX
Wizz' App will destroy all other forum/website/whatever app on the market!!!
an ipad app that cleans up the regular tpu interface would be really nice.
