Will there be a mobile app for the site ?
Some potentially relevant discussion here:
I’m using Discourse. Seems like a “hybrid” app, but still much better than using the web site on a mobile directly.
I just found and installed it on my iPhone. It looks very similar to the mobile web browser.
I just pinned the mobile site on my OnePlus 3t (Android 6.x based) home screen. Opens as a chrome-less (no pun intended) window.
Definitely better than a lot of sites I’ve used on mobile. Will have to try it for a while and see how I like it.
Most likely not. It works so well as a mobile web app
thanks all will try it tomorrow
It does! I’m finding the mobile works better than the desktop and it’s easier to read the mobile with the black background then my cheap old desktop monitor.
Sam here from Discourse
We have 2 official apps (one for iOS and one for Android) - both are now official and on the app stores:
The main advantages of using the apps are
- push notifications (which honestly look a lot nicer than email alerts)
- ability to track multiple discourse sites
- centralized notification list
- red badge on app icon in iOS (for unread)
Actual interaction with the actual site is via Safari or Chrome which is embedded.
Note, if anyone has Discourse questions feel free to ping me by typing in @sam
It’s a great hybrid App Sam. I’ve enjoyed using it so far on my IPhone 6S+. Much better than plain Safari, and I get my notifications on my Apple Watch too which is a bonus.
Sam is the Co-founder of Discourse.org the company that makes the infrastructure that the Ketogenic Forums are built on.
@sam just loaded it and looks great as I type this post on the phone all neat and tidy
When I try to add ketogenicforums.com in the Discourse app, I get an error stating that site can’t be found. What gives?
Never mind. I neglected to add www. Before the URL. Duh…
Thanks! I was making the same mistake wondering why I couldn’t get the app to work.
