OA2 Mobile App ?

Postby HeavyG-WV » Thu Jun 04, 2015 5:59 am

Rattler, GM and Advisory Council,

Has there ever been any talk of an OA2 mobile app? Nowadays, I would have to say most people have their eyes glued to a tablet or smart phone more so than an actual computer. This is definately the case for me.

Just curious

Considering that this web site is fully funded from my pocket -minus the occasional voluntary membership fee of $25.00 - no. The reality is that this site costs me $300-$500 a year to maintain and its paid for out of my pocket.

I have not pursued the option, but I'm certainly not opposed to it.

I have no problem accessing the forum from my smart phone, what more could you need?

Seriously, what would you want this app to do?

I don't see the need (or use) for a forum App on OA2.org either; but the concept might be viable for some of the larger boards, like Arfcom and others.

I can access on my smartphone as well, I just thought a different format would be better for a mobile device. The site is really small on a phone so I'm constant zooming in and out. Kind of a pain so I just go to the site from my desktop at work.

Seriously, what would you want this app to do?

Just an easier way to view the site, that's all. I would be on the site more if it was easier to view from a smart phone.

True, it is harder to read and you have to expand every frame, but truthfully, every site I visit is that way on my phone. I can see your point though.

some boards offer a "TapaTalk' App platform for mobile users; but I don't care for it; as I prefer the 'full-site' version over that lesser format.
