Mobile Forum Apps 

Post#1 » by dream34 » Fri Apr 12, 2013 3:34 pm

We are pleased to announce that both Android and iOS apps have been released for RealGM Forums in order to provide you with a better mobile experience. Both versions are free to download, but will display small advertisements. To download the app for your iPhone or iPad, search for 'RealGM Forums' in the App Store. On an Android device, search for the same thing in the Play Store. Feel free to rate and review them if you desire.

Direct links can be found at:
https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/realgm- ... ?ls=1&mt=8
https://play.google.com/store/apps/deta ... mcomboards

These apps are intended to completely replace the Tapatalk solution we had in place. We have no plans to develop a Windows or BlackBerry solution at the moment. Please leave any feedback in the Feedback and Suggestions forum.

I have a question. I did download. But, there is no link for Off Topic Boards or "View your posts". Thus, you have to manually go through to view posts.

I just hit the "Login" button in the top right corner (looks grayed out) and was in there.

My main suggestion is "View Your Posts" and moving that Advertisement to the top of the screen as it is blocking the screen and too easy to hit by accident, then you have to deal with Google Play opening up. Just saying, I can imagine how much worse it is on a smaller screen like iPhone opposed to Galaxy.

Also, I don't like how you have to go to thru first page of every thread to get to the last page of that thread.

But, I have a great idea. You know like where you hit the button that brings up the menu for "refresh - Search - New topic - Mark Forum as Read and Subscribe" Why don't you put a button in there for "View Your Posts".

Because, it is dificult to go from Magic board to Off Topic board.

That, would be freaking awesome.

Otherwise, this App is super quick and much faster than my PC at work while we are Fiber Optic 50mps at work. Just a few kinks to fix and this would be Pimp.

Well, it´s free, unlike tapatalk, so there´s that. And I wouldn´t mind generating some revenue (through ads) to a site that i spend so much time using.
I´ll download it when I get home.

I can never go to the first unread post with Tapatalk, so if that changes with this app, that would be great. But of course that functionality doesn't even work on desktop browsing, so I doubt it.
