I dont know if this has been mentioned in the past but i wondered if there were any plans for an Edugeek app???
Itd be handy! Ive bookmarked it at the min but an app would be cool

vBulletin have an app for iPhone which makes the forums work better on them, but, not sure if EduGeek has purchased this?
It was talked about a while back and I think its something Zerohour is going to be working on.
@Zerohour is working on it.

To be totally honest (and I think this has been mentioned before) surely the time would be better invested in making the mobile site better?
With so many platforms out there (iOS, BlackBerry, Android and WP7) it seems like a lot of work would be needed to cater for everyone where a decent mobile site and maybe an improvement to email notifications would serve all platforms much better.
I think the problem is that ZH posts on edugeek about twice a year and uses a quad xeon ,332GB RAM, eight 6000x4000 LCD Screen setup and doesn't see what the problem is
...as he runs quickly away back to his 1.3Ghz, 800x600 netbook
LOL..Zerohour and I spoke about the possibility of this a while back, and the consensus was, designing an App that fits all platforms is a lot of work, then add on top updates for each app as needed, a team of full time coders for iOS, Android, Blackberry (RIM), WPx (any variant of Windows phone) or Nokia OVI. Not feasible for now, so the best thing is to use the mobile version of the site
But the mobile version of the site is poor (and took a very long time to arrive) - and you know what us edugeekers think of poor software/sitesso the best thing is to use the mobile version of the site
I have sympathy but at the same time I've been quite disapointed with the site gui - someone with design skills is needed to sort it out and not a bunch of geeks
And of course, I'm availble 24/7 to offer "construcive crictisim"
PS Auto spull currector would be high on my list
I quite like the simplicity of the mobile site :-)
Tapatalk costs lol. Plus on some BBs and Nokia's it crashes an awful lot!
If you have some major problems with the mobile site, flag them up because i am sure if they are an easy fix @ZeroHour would sort it to make things easier until the Mobile Apps are designed.
He is working on them... :-) and everyone will know more as and when the time is right. :-)
I decide what's simple or not around hereI quite like the simplicity of the mobile site
mmmmIf you have some major problems with the mobile site, flag them up because i am sure if they are an easy fix @ZeroHour would sort it to make things easier
I find that NON of my problems are a priority
(But to be fair - ZH has said there is something on the way for me - I'm hoping for statuary Comic Sans MS as the forum font! )
In seriousness, the buttons are too small for me on my phone (HTC Desire) and non-ability to get to last post is probably the most blatent UI issue.
I would think that the mobile version of the site could have a twitter-like page so you can easily see what's going for instance.
I don't know what the price/data transparancy of this forums software is so that's might be a valid defence -so be it - but it doesn't stop me wanting what I want
I'm a JDI person
