I usually don't start new threads but I was wondering if there is a GUBoards phone app anywhere? If not, I think it would be very cool to have fans post from the phone while standing in the Kennel Club real time during a game.

GUBoards would actually work very well as a phone app.

We'd probably need one of the smarter(read: Computer Science people) GU Board members to make one because outside of our little cult here I'm doubting there's too much demand....

Anybody want to volunteer?

Edit- I would definitely download this!

I am not smart enough, or tech savvy enough to take on this project.


I WILL, however, volunteer to design the graphics and what-not in MS Paint (for a fairly nominal fee).

I've never had a problem posting from my EVO or my iTouch. I'm not sure an app is necessary.

In fact I'm posting from my iTouch right now.

Apps are never necessary. They are just options and additions that make life enjoyable. For some people anyway. I love my apps because I don't have to go through sign-ins and internet navigation that can be cumbersome. Click and post to upload photos or video directly can be options in an app too.

Its just an idea.

I post from my iphone just fine. Realistically, the admins need to look into making the forum tapatalk compatible. That would be the most feasible route.

I can post/browse from my Android just fine, but that being said:

There is the tapatalk forum app which has a plugin that works on vBulletin 3.6 to 4.x. The site admins would have to install the plugin on the back end, and then end users can download the app (I believe $3) and view the forum within the app. I use it for other forums, and it works fine. Their promo material is below.


Tapatalk is a forum app on the iPhone (http://tapatalk.com/mobile.php#iphone), Android (http://tapatalk.com/mobile.php#android), webOS (http://developer.palm.com/appredirect/?packageid=com.newnessdevelopments.forums), Windows Phone 7 (http://www.board-express.com) and BlackBerry (http://tapatalk.com/mobile.php#blackberry). Tapatalk Forum App provides super fast on-the-go forum access to majority of the discussion forums that has activated the Tapatalk plugin.

If you don't have the Zags Ball app from statsheet, get it.

oooooh, this one is nice. I love statsheet. Too bad they get the credit, but it sure has a lot of stats at its disposal.

Thanks GFactor

BZ, have them check out Forum Runner, too: http://www.forumrunner.net/. I have read that its free version has a few more features than tapatalks.

Both of them have kinda limited features for the free apps, but I think the full feature forum runner is a little cheaper.

Yeah... I think for next year (as an IT guy I don't like to mess with systems at critical times) we need to look at upgrading the BBS system over the summer. BZ as the techie admin I am pushing for it.

Would the app work on my 1998 Nokia with the interchangeable faceplates? Hope so!

Haha. Yes, and we need to make sure it will be compatible with my bag phone. I'm posting this from a bag phone, while sitting in my 1979 Chevy Nova. At a drive-in.

If your bag phone stops working, you can use my AOL account. I got a credit for 100 free hours!

My Motorola DynaTAC 8000x is aching for this app.
