Android App??

was tossing the idea of doing a app for the android phones for the site. I tried to do a few tonight but can't seem to figure it out. If anyone has an idea of how to make one and there's enough interest in it, might be a cool option to have out there.

again just a thought

I would love to have an Android app suited to our forum.

Seems like a good idea to me.

Sounds alright. First what will the app do? Second can you code? Third you know that android is linux based, correct? Third when you script the app, be sure to include a GL posting. Be sure you have a FTP for the binaries as well as the compiled app. I think that's a start.
Good Luck.

Do you mean an app or an icon Andrew? There is already an icon available for the site, I think wingnut junior made it. Send him a PM and see if he can help.

He means an app that is specifically designed to make reading forums easier.

They are available for other forums, I have tried one and it makes reading threads much easier with a limited screen size.

There is already and App for this purpose, Tapatalk, but the forum admins have to enable/install it. AZgl1500 said it was in the works but as of a couple of days ago it still was not showing up as enabled. I haven't tried it since then. I'm already using Tapatalk on 3 other forums, SCUBA related.

John,

I made mention of this in the mod forum to see if we can add that feature.

Thank you! They have a free version for the forum too, or paid versions for more bells and whistles.
