Is there a SMF Reader for Smart Phones?
« on: March 17, 2010, 11:29:24 AM »
As part of the forum, I would love to make available readers for our users so they can access the forum directly from their smart phone.  Right now we are doing RSS feeds, but I wanted something a bit more like an app that would allow users to have full access of the forum in an abbreviated format, specifically made for smart phones.

More specifically I was wondering about something that could be used on Android powered phones and Iphones.  I saw an Iphone App posted here that is kind of what I have in mind:

Does such a thing exist for Android?

Not to my knowledge. Given all the theme and feature changes that could be done to a site, such an application would either not work consistently, or would have to be customized for that specific forum.

SMF does have WAP, WAP2, and iMode access for mobile devices, however.

There is also the Curve Mobile theme that makes it more suited to mobile users.

We have just released another update, we are very close to official 1.0 release.

Currently it works well on 1.1.11+ or 2.0 RC3 or higher. We have seen a lot of SMF forum activated Tapatalk support lately.  ;)

I will be submitting my App to the App Store (for iPhone) next week. It works with most standard installs of SMF. The more Mods you have, the less likely it is to work.

It's called the browser. Works well enough for me, and if I need extra speed, I use the wap2 version of SMF.

I use that too, but would be nice a more user friendly version that looks nicer :P

I would't pay for an App because WAP2 works awesome for me :D
Anyways, if you are the admin of the SMF forum or you know the admin, tell him to install this: http://custom.simplemachines.org/mods/index.php?mod=2408

It's pretty cool and the mobile theme is pretty cool.

Another solution would be this: http://custom.simplemachines.org/themes/index.php?lemma=2035

Dragoon does a great job on that one! Cheers.

I have the free version of forumkast on my touch it works pretty good but I usually just use the browser.
