Anyone else wish there was an app for this site?


#1

I wish I got notifications on my phone. As opposed to only getting notifications from an app I don’t use anymore but don’t want to delete just in case and texts from Meijer and shit.

When I first signed up as a user on here I didn’t think it’d become one of the sites I use the most (the other being Youtube):smile:

I grabbed the discourse app out of curiosity. Ummmm, what does it do that the web based can’t do? :slight_smile:


#4

I didn’t know this existed!! Thanks😄


#5

AFAIK, nothing. It literally just launches it through Safari on iOS for me (maybe it does something else on Android, I’d have to grab my other phone and check.)


#6

Just opens the site through Chrome for me and logs me out too, so I guess that makes it different.

Yeah, I didn’t do any research on the apps I found, I just googled, read the features and pasted links.

I don’t really use mobile apps beyond two-factor authentication.

Unless Discourse comes up with an actual API I think it will remain a full on web-app. That said - mobile friendly web apps seem to be the way a lot of the big-name stuff is going. They then only have to develop for one platform, not two or more and don’t have to contend with daft app store policies.
