Need for Chief Delphi android/iOS app?

Is there a need for a Chief Delphi smart phone application?

I know tapatalk is a thing, but I am not sure on the amount of people that use it. Additionally, I think the mobile version of the current site is pretty usable, but a dedicated app would be better.

I would like to make an android app (iOS would come later) dedicated to Chief Delphi but I want to gauge interest first before I invest some time into it.

Is there enough marginal value in the app over the current website or Tapatalk to make it worth the effort? I think you answered your own question there. But if it's for your own expansion of knowledge, I say go ahead.

Re: Need for Chief Delphi android/iOS app?

I tried tapatalk a while back, and found it to be worse than just using a browser on my phone. Just my opinion, of course. Dedicated apps can be useful, but they have to be done right.

Re: Need for Chief Delphi android/iOS app?

I would be willing to at least test out a dedicated CD app, especially over the summer, when I will not be on a computer very much.
My portable devices are all Apple products.

Android user here. I think the mobile site is pretty good as is, however I'd be more than willing to try out a dedicated app.

Re: Need for Chief Delphi android/iOS app?

It isn't like we need another reason for people to be obsessed with their phones. Using Chief Delphi on your phone's browser seems to work ok... not opposed however to an app.

Re: Need for Chief Delphi android/iOS app?

If anything, I want a blue alliance iOS app. It sucks not being able to use the blue alliance on mobile as well as android users can with their fancy app. And No, Iím not going to switch to Android.

I'm not sure what the status is of it, but I know that Zachary Orr has had an iOS TBA app in development for a few years now. Looks like he's open to contributors. https://github.com/the-blue-alliance...e-alliance-ios

As for a CD app, I don't really have any problems using the site on my phone. Its totally readable for me, and 99% of my browsing comes from the "Recent Activity" feed anyway.

I would totally do this but iOS apps require a MacBook (even when cross compiling) and I also don't want to pay the annual fee to develop for iOS. I started developing with Android in 2012 and it has only cost me $25 over the past 6 years...

I was thinking that the majority of the app would be based around the recent activity portion of the site anyway.

The improvements I was thinking of are UI based, widgets, etc.

Re: Need for Chief Delphi android/iOS app?

If there was a chief app I probably would use it. I just don't like Tapatalk at all.

Well, while I am not against a different app, I have used Tapatalk for years for Chief Delphi and other boards. It works well, has been available for years, and is well supported. Not sure another app is needed, or would be used a lot when there is already a good solution available.

Re: Need for Chief Delphi android/iOS app?

If an app could fix CD's broken "go to last unread" I might use it. Otherwise the website is fine imo.
