Do you guys think it's time for Paranormalis to get a mobile app?

In light of the latest update of the forum software I installed on the forum, I don't think it's worth it to re-enable Tapatalk.

The only thing it had that the mobile web version didn't was push notifications. With Xenforo 2.1, we now have those push notifications. They're a native feature of the forum software. All you have to do is enable them. The forum will invite you to do so next time you visit.

Man I love Xenforo! :alien:

Do this:


Those two changes take care of most of the things people want an app for.

IIf you use an app "service", know that all of those companies can only be profitable by selling more than just what you're purchasing from them. Look at what happened to TapaTalk (what a fucking mess)... At this point, no site owner who values their community at all should be installing something that gives some other company complete control and access to their database.

There are other solutions out there, but most of them are really just stripped down browsers that load the website anyways.

In that case its better not to have an app at all.

Installed the Home Screen plugin, it works wonders. @SanicHotdog This should be close, if not exactly what you wished for.

And the push notifications are enabled since we moved up to XF2.1. They work great.

Thanks for the tip, @Cosmo , it's a great add-on that deserves more attention. :)

It is exactly what I wished for especially the push notifications
