Mobile version of Head-Fi? - Page 3

post #31 of 165

Yeah, it looks a bit quiet, but I thought I'd add a vote for some sort of mobile version.

I thought that a mobile version was on the cards months ago, but I haven't been here in a while and maybe that's not a priority anymore.

The thing is that sooner or later, none of us are going to be posting from our desks anymore.  Just ask any top-tier mobile broadband provider about the increase in traffic over their networks, we're doing much more of our web browsing on the go.  Head-Fi (as well as the rest of the internet) might as well get used to being viewed on mobile devices, especially with the introduction of smartphones and tablets running multi-core processors on 4G data networks...

I completely agree. I've been posting more and more from mobile. I've had an iPhone since they were released and I'm frequently away from the house. I would not be surprised if I have close to 10k posts on mobile. A mobile-optimized version would be great and would probably help bring in more members.

Well, you're a mod...what do you think the chances are of grabbing a couple other mods and PM'ing the admin about it?  Should we set up a poll?

WOULD LOVE mobile to work like the old site...PLEASE.  

 

I will drive to Oakland and cook Tri-Tips in Huddler's parking lot for them + find a bulk deal on Jolt Cola.

 

Who's with me?

If allowed, I might be able to create an Android app for the site. Or we could get a group of tech savvy people to coordinate creating iphone and android apps!

Good point. I have no clue how to program for BB though. We really should start a thread to get this started. Unfortunely I'm pretty busy so someone else will have to head this operation :)

 

I was thinking an app similar to the Android Reddit app. (if anyone is familiar with it) Its the best reader type thing I have ever used for a website.

Why bother coding something?  All we need is tapatalk support, which is supposedly pretty straightforward: http://www.tapatalk.com/plugin.php

 

That way, we'd already have apps on iPhone, Blackberry and Android (and others too; I use WebOS, and there's a beta app out now for tapatalk).

 

Edit:  Hmmm, not sure if Head-Fi's obscure (yet totally awesome) forum software is supported...

I don't know anything about Tapatalk but anything to improve the experience of navigating Head-Fi from a mobile device would be greatly appreciated. Please make this happen. ASAP! deadhorse.gif

If there was a mobile version I'd probably use that on my desktop.

Maybe we can sign a petition or something?  Vote?  PM Jude?

Wow I had just finished writing a feedback form regarding a mobile version when I saw this, good thing I didn't hit send yet!

 

I would definitely love and use a mobile version all the time. This site is VERY slow on my iTouch since there are so many ads and other dynamic features.  I believe HeadFi would really benefit from a mobile version because it could help generate a lot more traffic and attract more users. A vast majority of people spend lots of time browsing the internet via a mobile device and I find it painful to try to browse the forums currently.  

 

I'd actually even be interested in helping HeadFi develop a mobile version. While my skills  are relatively basic, I have developed a iPhone mobile app and always simply enjoy learning more. It could be a fun project I'd enjoy working on (even for free!).
