    Lightbulb Forum Geek Alert: Forum runner is now active

    Folks, I've tried several promising modifications to the forum which claim to support smartphones. Finally, this product is 100% supported....meaning that is is very stable when integrated with the forum software. Cool :) Read about it below and decide for yourself. The read only version is free and the full monte is $1.99 (you pay them not me). SteveP has either thrown a clot or in a random act of kindness allowed me to tap into his copious winnings, from you suckers, and will pay for anyone who can not afford the onedollarandninetyninecents. Please post your plea here and make it good. Steve says that after he gets bored the offer will be removed and future winnings, from you suckers, goes to building a heated condo for his pet squirrel.

    Anywho, enjoy the app and please report back what you like about it.

    =============

    This forum now supports Android and the iPhone/iPod Touch/iPad natively with Forum Runner!

    What is Forum Runner?

    Forum Runner is an Android/iPhone/iPod Touch/iPad App that allows you to browse this forum using a native client. This means faster access for those users since it only downloads the actual forum information rather than all the extraneous images that slow down the mobile connection.

    Forum Runner Feature List


    • Browse your favorite forums in an easy-to-use-interface with multiple notification types (private message, subscription, etc)
    • Fully customizable home screen with your favorite forums
    • PUSH NOTIFICATION SUPPORT : Get private message and subscribed thread updates from your favorite forums in the background!
    • Poll updates (private messages/subscriptions) from favorites on home screen - shows you a summary of which forums you have new messages or subscriptions on!
    • Image attachment thumbnail and full size viewing from threads
    • View a thread's image attachments in one convenient screen (much like the native iPhone "Photo" app)
    • Save thread images to your iPhone/iPod touch library
    • Fully search-able forums!
    • View embedded links without leaving the app, including YouTube videos
    • Supports portrait AND landscape mode
    • Full posting options (quote posts, start new thread, etc)
    • Attach unlimited photos from your library (or take a photo from the camera and attach it)
    • Full support for private messages and private message folders
    • Full support for thread subscriptions - track your favorite threads and be updated via push when they have new posts!

    I've been using safari on the iPhone and it functions just like my laptop so the new format will take some learning

    Seems to be working rather well. It's a heck of a lot easier than trying to navigate the forum on safari with an iphone.

    Good work!

    I used it a little bit this morning on an iPad. Seems to work as advertised. It is also a lot faster than loading through Safari (this is on home wifi, for those that are curious).

    Much better than Safari. So far I like Forum Runner better than Tapatalk (used for other forums).

    TT, curious if this uses a nicely documented API and whether you would open that up for other forum viewing software (say, if I were to write something)? Pure curiosity at this point.

    Just got the app for iPhone. Let's you attach photos from the phone (my only camera these days). Way easier than phone to laptop to VSalon. Now I have no excuses...

    I downloaded a couple of days ago for the iPhone. Works great and super easy to configure but still using the regular site just out of habit. I am sure I will transition very soon completely.

    This works well, and sure does make catching up on things easier on my ancient (slow) iPhone. As others said, I just need to get in the habit of using it. Every once in a while text gets overlapped or jumbled on a post at first - but then after a few seconds it straightens itself out. Just wish there was a "what's new" search button on it - since that's where I go first when opening the site.

    Overall it's a winner.

    Phew. Glad it is working well for you gents. When this old thread popped up quite frankly I'm several beers into a good evening and sure as he!! don't need no bad news ;)

    Forum Runner is solid, no need to muck with it.
