• Announcing the new EduGeek Mobile App


    EduGeek - The App, part 2

    We have just launched the new version of the EduGeek App for those of you on mobiles. Android screenshots will be added as soon as we have a final build which is due any day now.
    iOS: Get it from http://edugeek.me/to/iosapp
    Android: Get it from http://edugeek.me/to/droidapp
    Kindle: Get it from http://edugeek.me/to/kindleapp

    The app is based on the latest version of Tapatalk and supports push notifications for new replies, pm's and more.

    Notes from Little-Miss
    @Little-Miss has written a list of a few of the changes that she has noticed on the new iOS app to help get you up to speed:
    • Posts can be enlarged/zoomed by holding your finger down on post. Tapping the screen again exits that view.
    • If a thread has continued over a few pages, you can move between the pages by using the down arrow at the top-middle under the thread's title.
    • A quick reply bar can be turned on in 'settings' for threads.
    • 'Forums' and 'messages' also have a white drop down arrow which has some view options. Definitely makes searching for a certain forum easier.


    General observations
    • Pictures are displayed better within posts.
    • Easier navigation within the new menu system
    • Reply to PMs with a text box at the bottom.
    • Animated GIF support.

      For those wondering, yes Windows Phone is coming too, for now you can use Tapatalk though but it is a little buggy.

      I am literally waiting for 1 bug to be fixed then it should be live. It was supposed to be fixed last week though so hoping it will be soon.

      Rebadged for iOS and Android but that actually takes an amazing amount of work as there have been so many bugs etc we didn't release any major changes until it was stable (over 6 months)
      Currently I have my own WP version I have coded myself.

      Dark mode is still in the Android build yes, it does not exist on iOS but it never did.

      FYI iOS: A new version is working its way through the store right now to fix a few bugs.

      Wait, the new app (not released yet) is a rebadge off of tapatalk still?

      From the screenshots, it looked like a new app altogether.

      Yeah, seems to be some talk on that online looking at Twitter etc. would be quite good I guess if they did...

      Is Microsoft about to buy Xamarin? | ZDNet
