    I have an update to the server side software. I'll try and update it later this weekend or Monday. That *might* improve things.

    Question(s) for those of you who use the app or have used the app.

    1. Would you trade the app for an improved mobile template?
    2. Do you bypass the app and use the browser? If so, why?

    I use the app on the phone, quicker than full browser on the device.
    Although for Modding purposes I will jump on to the site and swing the ban hammer if need be. (Still need that back for eWM) :)
    Would be a nice add if it were possible to do it in the app.

    Would you make this trade?
    App for Mobile Template + Vastly Better Desktop Experience?

    Hmm, would I (we) be able to test drive the new experience prior to deciding? :)

    I think I could arrange that or in your case, maybe I have arranged that.

    I only use the browser for things that can't be done in the app.

    I was always a "hold-out" on using an app when the browser or mobile browser worked well. For EA I do use the application. It doesn't take up too much storage, is fast, clean and easy. I wouldn't object to trying a mobile version. (When I moderated for rb's forum, I also needed the "full" version, so he left it as the users choice...) I remember on EQ it was "forced" as mobile...

    Ans Scott...when you tweeted this, the link didn't oppen on the phone...Said "Survey not available..."

    Sorry, you might need to hit it up from a desktop browser.

    If you want an idea of what I'm thinking, follow these steps:

    • Visit http://www.everythingwm.com/forum and scroll to the bottom left, zoom in. Hit the text that says "WP7".
    • Scroll out and you should see a pop-up menu which is rendering at the top of the forum. Select 'Mobile'.

    Please feel free to use the Off Topic forum to test things out.

    I use the app for EA. I did what you said. The mobile site for EWM looks great (I have used it on my phone as well...!) Also, what about that "TAPATALK" thing? It has a nice UI. (I realize that you need to pay to post...) I will use whatever you do!

    At some point. If we went sooner than later, we'd lose access to the app for unknown amount of time. We'd gain an improved desktop experience and a mobile template.

    Ideally, I'd like to have all three.

    I know I am "butting in" to moderator/administrator stuff here, but, hey, it's me :tounge:...Tapatalk is nice, but note that not everyone will pay to post. Especially with mobile formats available. I didn't...I used full forum (which was fine on the Droid) before I downloaded the app. Even on the small screen from my Motorola Q, I used the full vBulletin format for rb's forum, which rendered fine!

    Anyway, just my opinion!

    On a side note, I just pushed a server side update. Everything appears to be working.
