Revscene Mobile IPHONE and ANDROID apps!

I am working on finalizing dedicated apps for both Iphone (and Ipod touch and Ipad) and Android mobile devices. These apps will give full access to forums, including control panel, private messaging, etc, etc.

I wanted this to be a big surprise. There are several ways to go about this though, and I wanted to ask you guys first.

To be able to submit apps, you need to have accounts with both Apple ($99 per year) and Google ($25 one time fee)

Basically:

If the app were to cost $0.99 for the itunes version, would you be interested? Or is the only way you would use it if it was free? How about ads?

Please answer the poll and let me know what you think

Thanks!

I'd pay $0.99 for an app.

I've also seen apps out there for vBulletin forums. Some work right out of the box and some require a plug-in to be installed. Just curious as to whether RS has looked into installing a plug-in to allow existing apps to work (like Tapatalk)?

Well we could do free and paid versions of each, I guess

I am kind of surprised how many people say they'd only use it if it was free AND ad free... it's early though I guess. I'll go to bed now and check this thread tomorrow

Blackberry App would be nice

You can probably find a dollar in your dryer so there should be no reason you wouldn't pay for this app!

No estimated date, since it all depends on how the acceptance process goes.

BB users, sorry, for now you'll just have to use the mobile website until you get a better phone

surprised i'm the only one that voted so far for free + yes ads if necessary. RS Mobile right now already has ads, and non-mobile now has ads too. To be cheap AND demanding is just crazy to me lol...

why not make it free with ads, and for people who want no ads, they can choose to upgrade to a paid version for 99 cents and have no ads? Similar to what a lotta other apps do

Not much real estate on a phone vs. at home. I rather use as much space for viewing actual forums. 99 cents is nothing.

I voted for free with ads. Then I realized I should have voted for 0.99c.
We don't want anonymous trolls raiding the app.

Definitely be cool to have something like the Thanks and Fail. Or only have the Fail button

I would pay .99c for the app.

But IMO I would release a free version with an in-app upgrade to the non-ad version. That way those who want to support RS and the app can do the upgrade for the non-ad version and those who don't want to pay the .99c will have the ads... Either way though, it'll end up on installo.us or something.

Features I'd like to see:

- Ability to take a photo from your phone (or phone's album) and post it to the forum.
- Thanks/Fail as mentioned.
- Multi quote instead of only Quote.
- Advanced search so you can at least limit searches to a forum

This, and also rschatbox.


How much of the sales proceeds will go back into the wellbeing of rs as a whole?
