• 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.

      Looking at the revision list, the app update that was released isn't the new app - its a "pre-new app update" for the app update tomorrow.

      Biggest improvement so far... The startup image fills the screen. The old one made me twitch every time it opened.

      Hello,
      I try to pay attention to app permissions, and this update wants access to my accounts. I’m not sure what the need is for this as we do not use any kind of SSO on the site.
      This would be the android app on my GS3

      Thanks,

      Any updates on this? My phone now runs Windows Phone 8.1 so I'm hoping that hasn't delayed things further??
