Any chance of implementing the free server side of this app so that iphone users can take advantage?

It really make browsing the forums much easier on the iphone/ipod

see tapatalk.com (sorry can't post links yet)

I've never used it but making the forum more accessible on the iphone sounds good in my book.

Pish posh. I have personally used the iPhone to post during Sheep games from the bathroom--some of them even run by you! So don't you tell me how ludicrous it is to browse this phone from an iPhone!

From what I read, this is a simple plug in that the tech people at IB need to implement. I don't see what could cause a problem.

I want to say the HDD version is a VB plug-in, but I really don't know for sure.

I can tell you that even before the HDD upgrade was put into testing, the iPod / iPhone resolution was already in the Top 10 browsers used for the site. 7 months ago, the same wasn't true for DVDTalk.

That's changed as of the last month though. Keep pushing for it.

Exactly. These mobile versions of websites can be potentially as good as the Facebook app on the iPhone. Sure, you can go to Facebook using the regular web on the phone, but it's slow as molassas compared to the app.

I would hope it does, there are several sites that force the iPhone "optimized" version without the option to utilize their full website. So far the only two that have switched to their optimized versions that I like are best buy and amazon, plus they give you the option to still use the full site.

I don't have an iPhone, does it not offer a way to identify the browser as IE or Firefox to get around that?

while i've never used TapaTalk before, i'm guessing the issue here is ads. am i correct to assume that DVDTalk's ads wouldn't show up in TT?

if that's the case, now that we're all corporate and whatnot, i'm pretty shocked IB doesn't have an iPhone app - something to browse all IB-owned forums with all necessary ads in place. seems like kind of a no-brainer to me.

then again, maybe IB is like me, and doesn't really understand the point of their company. :shrug:

Could we at least get an update/estimated timeline please?This is what I've been told:

For reasons of protecting the content from third party re-publishers, "tapatalk... won't be happening".

Regarding the "mobile plan" for this site, it's part of a broader (IB-wide?) initiative from which it cannot be separated. As a consequence there aren't really too many details available and it's not currently possible to provide a timeline.

FWIW: those involved - which I'm not - have said that if they could give a decent timeline they would.

So a year and a few months later, any movement?Your comment isn't entirely accurate, given that a response was provided less than three months ago.

While it wasn't the response that some might have been hoping for, I'm not sure what is achieved when folk seem to take shots at the site owners' failure to set out their plans in public when those charged with formulating and enacting any such plans had already their position clear by way of the summary I was asked to post not so long ago.

I'll close the thread now given that IB will doubtless make an announcement when they feel it appropriate whereas any "badgering" here is unlikely to serve a constructive purpose IMO.

I've discussed my reasons for not installing this in private with the admins, and I'll try to boil them down into two main points.

1.) The branding of DVDTalk is something that we need to have control of. Installing a third-party API allows the display and manipulation of the forum content in a way that we cannot control. While we agree with the spirit of the application, we cannot open ourselves to the liability it presents to both branding and the platform of the site.

2.) We are currently working on a solution for forum interaction on the iPhone, and have plans to work on an Android version. The work on this actually started before this thread did, and is currently in alpha testing. Has it taken a long time? Yes. However, it's taken a long time because we want to make sure that the application is first class-- and it will be. While we apologize for the delay, we're sure that it'll be worth the wait.
