Heyo,

I just recently got a mobile phone which uses android and thought about this question.
Did you ever thought about making an app? I was curious, because then it would be much easier to check thing on your mobile phone.

And btw easier. Every thought about a signal to let the person know if someone comment on a topic you did?
Like I get a signal or message if someone comment on this topic wink

I was just curious and it's would be much to do since I did something similiar but I just wanted to ask wink

I agree with both of these suggestions! An iOS app for both the iPhone and iPad would be awesome.

First of all. Yeah it's for iOS, but w/e.

Second, why? I honestly don't understand everyone's obsession with phone apps for websites when our phones have fully functional web browsers. My phone accesses this website just fine with no noticeable loss in functionality without an app, so I imagine it's the same story with other smart phones. And if I REALLY want a slick B-U icon on my phone, I can make one with a simple bookmark.


My vote goes to making a mobile version of this site, if anything. Not that I particularly care to have one, but if something to that effect must be done, it might as well be semi-universal (IE not for iOS only).

It'd also be lower maintenance for when Apple releases another iOS and makes all your apps bug out.

I don't know, I mean with all the information and all, I prefer to read it with a larger screen instead of the tiny screen of the smartphone. It works faster with computer and laptop anyway. It's fine to have an apps, but is it really worth it? Since it's unlikely that the majority would use it often.

First: So it wouldn't help me. since I don't have an iphone and want one. but never mind.

Second, because if it's an app it's easier to use. An dno i am not obsessed with phone apps -.-
using an browser is different. you have to zoom and stuff, but if it's made for phone it would be put in shape for it
and going to my list for example with one click without scrolling and zooming so your finger can touch the icon -.-
i just wanted to know because it's much more comfortable. As a person who studies Computer science I see the difference, so sorry for seeing the difference -.-

And last but not least I don't care if I have an icon on my phone which is acess to this side. Just want it more comfortable

The author of the thread I provided said he's also making an android app. I honestly didn't know that either when I posted it, so lets revel in both of our collective ignorance.

Nah, I never said I don't see the difference, but at the same time, I understand my post could be taken that way. It's more like my experience with apps for navigating websites hardly ever work as well or are heavily restricted in what you can do as opposed to going to the website using your phone's browser. (unofficial gamefaqs app, anyone?) I never thought of zooming as a burden, either. Then again, I do notice how my friends or parents fumble with it or hold the phone weird when tring to do things, so maybe I just adapt better.

I think the only useful app I have that I never felt was restricting what I can see or do is the Amazon app. The password function seems to be broken on it though... but now I'm getting off-topic.

I have to agree on an android app. It would be really nice to have an app where you login and swipe left to access your lists or swipe right to go to the discussion boards. A really great example of this is Chant which is a 4chan browser. Somehow I have an easier time using the app than going to the site on my computer.

A mobile site would be just as nice with very simple responsive html so those without a smartphone but with internet on their phone can still access it for simple things like adding a series to a list. I would have loved to do that when waiting on the bus when I had my old dumphone.

An App to get notifications seems fine to me, like i set it to check for X manga and get a notification when one reléase is posted, or x genre. or like i got a PM... or my group x died etc etc... Not whole funtionality only notifications to let me know it happened and i will know if log in or just "screw it"

Last I heard, there is one in the works, but that was months ago.

I think a mobile version/ web app of the website would work just fine, I don't particularly see a need for a native app, it's not like you'd want to access mangaupdates offline or anything.
