I think the forum would have more activity if we had a mobile app. Also it would be a better way to get notified on stuff that are happening on the forum. What do u guys think?
In that case its better not to have an app at all.Do this:
Home Screen Installation This add-on will add your site to the home screen with the relevant icon, full screen behaviors, themes, standalone appearance without browser bar etc. Before installing: Open manifest.json file and edit name...xenforo.comWelcome to the first of our "Have you seen...?" series for XenForo 2.1. We've got a lot to show you over the course of the next few weeks so you may well be hearing from us quite frequently... To ensure you're kept up to date, we strongly recommend clicking the "Watch forum" link here and...xenforo.com
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.
It is exactly what I wished for especially the push notificationsInstalled 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.
I think that would be useful so if people did not want to go or open up a web broweser they can you on the app store and dowload the app for this webiste.I think the forum would have more activity if we had a mobile app. Also it would be a better way to get notified on stuff that are happening on the forum.
