Mobile App

There is a new mobile app out for iPhones and iPads. It's not free, 1.99, and right now the verdict is out on if it's an improvement. It is spectacularly buggy for me, crashes at times, and images sometimes don't load (or make the screen jump around). It is totally different than the old one, and probably more functional, but needs some improvement.

At least that whole null thing is gone.

For what it's worth, the mobile site is excellent. I just bookmarked that sucker and put a shortcut on one of my screens. It functions the same as an app without taking up that space on my phone.

(btw... i'm using android...)

The new mobile app is different than the mobile skin, just to clarify. The old mobile app looked basically just like the mobile skin, but the new app doesn't.

Also, the old mobile app seems to work, FWIW. You have to make adjustments to the URL in your settings and make sure your new account info is in place, but it works.

You get a message at the top saying that the old mobile app is outdated or something, and they provide a link to the app store for the new app, but I've been fine just ignoring that. I'm not sure how long that will last, or if it will last, but I don't think we all have to change immediately.

No, not sure if they will ever make a droid version (they don't say on their site that one is in the works). Your stuck with using a browser and the mobile skin.

Does anyone else have problems with the cursor jumping around while trying to type using the mobile site? It happens to me all the time. Mid sentence the cursor just resets itself somewhere else in the post.

Any word on an Android app? I'm using a Droid razr w/ chrome mobile browser.

I've never used the mobile skin on a Droid, or heard of the cursor problem before (does it happen if you switch out of the mobile skin? I'm pretty sure you can at the bottom of the page.).

And Zander is right, their mobile app is horrible, it crashes on me half the time, has limited function, and doesn't work as well as simply browsing the site on a mobile browser. So I wouldn't hold out for a Droid app, and if they do release one, expect suckage.

edit: just tried the forums on a samsung galaxy III s, no cursor jump.

Is anyone else's mobile app starting on the first unread post, then jumping up 4-5 posts? This is only in certain threads or seems. Perhaps only threads with pics? Although I think that would be most threads.

I believe this accompanied my upgrade to ios6. Would not do that again if I had it to do over. Ah well, I'm due for the 5 on 10/15 :)

I've experienced this both on the mobile app and on the actual site on my computer too. Not sure what the deal is, but it seems like a faulty timestamp or something like that.

You are right, that groove between Split and Catapult from Cypress kicked ass and was cut off too early, but that should really be said in the Phish forum.

You have to use safari to open the page, and then type in the img tags manually.

Yeah, it's jank, but it's on ipb board, not osyrus.

I wouldn't bother.  Just use the mobile skin in safari or chrome on your iPhone.

Actually, the app (when functioning) is way more convenient than the mobile browser.  The mobile browser doesn't always resize correctly, and usually reloads if and when you navigate to another page to grab a quick image, forcing you to re-type your whole post.  

 

It would be really great for the updated version of the app to be available.
