iPhone use?

Postby matt » Thu Nov 19, 2009 1:05 pm

Does anyone else use an iPhone to check the board? It sucks. There's an app to check php boards but the admin needs to install some shit. Anyway this could get done? Would anyone else use it?

App is called TouchBB. There's a free version but you can only log onto two boards.

I do. It's not too bad, but I was just thinking I wish there was a mobile display or something.

There is potentially a way to do it, but it's really hacky. So no easy way to optimize the board for iphone usage. It's not as easy as it may sound.

However, I've gotten used to checking the board on the iphone when I'm away from my computer, and it's not so bad.

surfing the forum on the iphone isn't all that bad. It's not my favorite but I can handle it for a little while at a time.

That's probably because the Blackberry Browser is the absolute worst.

Yeah, I really like my BB, but the browsing could use some improvment.

That's always been my complaint about them. I figured the BBOS 5.0 would maybe improve it, but alas, no. I know they're hiring a ton of WebKit devs, so hopefully an overhaul is coming soon. [/nerd]
