smartphone app??


Does Runboard have or are you working on a smart phone app? I keep hearing people request such a thing. I'm the owner of the Brotherhood of the Bat and would love to be able to offer that kind of thing to my board members who want it. I suspect a bit if the fall off in member posts is simply because a lot of people use their phones primarily instead of a PC. Even our old owner was unable to use the board so he pretty much stopped posting.

Re: smartphone app??


I am working on a 3rd party RB mobile app but this is in such a preliminary stage I really hate saying much about it just yet. So far all I have are a few sketches, no coding as yet since I want to get my visual goals in place before trying the actual "app creation" process.

Re: smartphone app??


Hi efarrell,

We don't have a mobile app, but it is possible to make it more mobile-friendly, using CSS. If you look at your ]control panel on a phone, you will see that it looks quite different there than it does on a larger screen. If you don't have a phone handy, simply re-size your browser window so it's very narrow, and you can see it change before your eyes.

Pop this in at the end of your CSS, view it in a phone (or re-size your browser so it's narrow), and see what you think. Of course, I can tweak it for you...

@media (max-width : 1023px), (max-device-width : 1023px) {
     img[alt='Community logo'] {
        width: 98%;
     }
}
@media (max-width : 640px), (max-device-width : 640px) {
     .ak_msg_master_table {
        width: 100%;
     }
     td[class^='forum_list_header'],
     td[class^='topic_list_header'] {
        background-size: 100% 100%;
     }
     #header h2 {
          height : 45px; padding-top : 38px; font-size : 25px;
     }
     .locationboard, .locationforum, .locationtopic,
     .forumlistforumname, .topiclisttopicname {
          font-size: 18px;

I like that code LG emoticon

Since I let the cat out of the bag so early in my design process... If anyone has any ideas or suggestions on what they would like to see in the [sign in to see URL] cellphone app please feel free to post them here... emoticon

Re: smartphone app??


Thanks, I'll keep checking back with you guys. I, myself, don't use a smart phone so most of what you guys said is black magic to me but I'll share it with my moderators and see if it makes sense to them. I do recall one app that's been mentioned in the past is "tap a talk". I'm not gonna lie, I have no idea what it is.

You're welcome, efarrell.

]Here's a link to Tapatalk. We have discussed installing it for Runboard, but it would take a lot of programming on Thor's part, and he doesn't currently have time for that.

Here is how the control panel basically looks on a phone:

--Log in or sign up to see linked image content--

The layout is optimized for a very small screen, and buttons are larger to make them easier to tap. This was accomplished by detecting the device size, and applying different styling for smaller screens.

The CSS I gave you isn't quite as optimized for phones as the CSS for the control panel, and it does have room for improvement, but it would make the board a lot easier to read on phones if you add that to the end of your CSS.

Pastor Rick, will people be able to log in to their Runboard accounts with this app you're creating? I was under the impression that this wouldn't be possible without root access to Runboard's programming, which only Thor has.

Re: smartphone app??


The app concept I am working with is related to a user side responsive css. The idea is that it will only work if a user has navigated to a Runboard site (much like what a board owner can do now by having a css file that is called from another site).

If I am not being clear or specific it is because I am still on step one of the process which is drawing pictures and setting design goal breakpoints. But, to answer the question, since the app is being designed as a add-on to Runboard and will only work if the user is on a Runboard site they will be able to log-in when using it (at least that is one of my design goals).

Only those "drag-n-drop" apps for work. Those won't work for a custom app of this type though so I am looking at a couple of books on how to create a app from scratch.

Re:


I'm glad I asked about this, it sounds like it's sparked some serious discussion and with a large part of the population basically "living on their smart phones" I get the feel that it will be useful.
One of my mods is looking into tapatalk but I did mention that I don't think it works with runboard.

Oh and BTW, feel free to call me Ed
