Great job toby! I'm very happy! Its not a bug, but it is possible for you to change the font of thw text from Times New Roman to something a little more modern? Like Arial?

Also is it possible to remove the 'alert - success' notification after you post a message. I think it slows down the user experience and adds an annoying feature.

Also... My predictive text is not working while Im typing.

don't know if possible. if possible it is a question of money. and that I don't have. Keep buying my Airstyle DVD and if enough people do, I will have money again. www.airstyle.tv Thx!


while i think it's great you've got an app out there now, to leave an andriod version on the back burner is a little bit short sighted !!!

If exposure to the forum (inc your advertising partners) is important, why plow your cash into an iphone app and not ensure you are doing the same for android users ??

75% of smartphones sold worldwide run android and only 15% run ios !!!

so great job on getting an app sorted, just a shame for me & the majority of people who've got a smart phone, we can't use it......

one day, not now.

Short sighted? just a question of money. You finance, I will pay u back when I have!

And the majority of people I know who kite, have an iphone. At least 80%. Sure, world stats show more Android. But I am interested to have this service for kiters. Not joe average ;-)

But maybe anyone has reliable stats of that? Anyone did a poll yet?

Strange but I can't login, if I enter my nick as it is : Séb it will say that my nickname is incorrect. Then if I only enter Seb, it say I must login to have access and bring me back a new screen with the login and password. If you have any idea of what the problem could be Toby, send me an email : seb.waxdesign@gmail.com

Note : this is on my iPad, did not try it on my iPhone but the app say it is compatible with iPad too.

Just curious - what is the advantage of such an "App" ?

I just click once on a bookmark directly to the main page - it is fast in mobile browsers, as the kiteforum site is very "light".

And even better - using an Opera browser as I prefer, it is superfast loading, and really easy to navigate, and remembers your login :thumb:

Oldschool style - but it works perfect :rollgrin:

What am I missing when not having a Kiteforum App ?

This is a serious question, as I have no idea :roll:

:D Peter

Peter

Basically phones do not display forums well and are even harder to use to post. The advertising takes up too much space and links are hard to follow (click on) or the last post symbol are hard to use without constantly zooming in and out. Having clean text sized and formatted to fit the screen so that you can easily read it is fantastic.

Really no other benefit but ease of use.

Pete
