I'd love a paleohacks iphone app! The site is okay on my browser but it's kinda hard to navigate with so many questions. I'd like to see a "simpler" (better fitting/navigating for an iphone screen) format. What are your ideas and suggestions?
Not iphone as I'm android powered, but I personally have trouble scrolling down the page and not accidentally flagging stuff.
So for me, it would be more user friendly if you couldn't accidentally flag things while trying to scroll.
i'd use it, and i've seen plenty of others make reference to being here on their phones too. i don't care about special features or anything, just easier reading/navigation would be great. even just a mobile version of PH (like you mentioned in your other post) would be rad.
Honestly an iPhone or android app is not necessary. A mobile page for this site would be just as good for users. The app would be helpful simply for developers to rake in cash money.
Absolutely. An app where everything is always perfectly formatted to the screen is always a thing on beauty for touch screen. Pinching, zooming, adjusting is fiddly and annoying. Case in point -Tapatalk an app for regular web based forums (robb wolf's forum is tapatalk compatible) is so much nicer, easier and smoother than any browser - it's brilliant. I would pay the standard 2-3 dollars no problem at all for a good app
UPDATE Found a website running the same site Q &A software as paleohacks ( questions, tags, badges, votes) etc. (btw, what's it called, I cant seem to find the name of the software anywhere??) Here are some screen shots on the Android app they have made for it. Looks awesome. If we could get something like this with Paleohacks, that would be brilliant. Also the site 'stack overflow' has a mobile web version. If we could get that activated here, that would be brililant too. Smartphones are getting more and more prevalent, I am sure demand for apps or mobile will only increase
Definitely a good idea to make one - I would use it.
My suggestion for the potential author would be to study the free iPhone app called "Alien Blue", which is a client for the well-known reddit.com Internet forum. You will learn how the good forum client should look like and which features are nice to have.
