Mobile EF Site?

Post by eddy192837 » 05 Jun 2011, 05:28

Anyone ever thought of having a mobile EF forum which you can access easily through your phone or maybe even an App for the iphone? I think it sounds great. Feel free to comment your opinion or ideas

Yer it would be awesome, but no offense to the EF admin but I don't think they are that technically skilled (not in general, but just not enough to make an iPod app).

This site is on the brink of death, unless a WC is on.

I love the site and the community but, iphone apps are for your ebays, youtubes, twitters, facebook. In other words no one is going to make one.

Something I would like to implement is EF ads but thats not gonna work with the communities lack of....happening.

Always thought the site could use a spruce up, especially in the WORLDFOOTBALL/ TRAINING areas. Maybe just a forum would do.

Some more football knowledge on the site would be sweet. Thats not to say it does not exist, 95% of this site is brilliant

Nah, the technical part is not a problem but such updates just aren't a worthwhile investment considering the current size of the EF userbase at the moment.

Yeah, you're right, although we don't really work on expanding the site, nowadays we mostly do big fixes and stuff.

Technically it's not that difficult. A basic approach would be :

Grab the UserAgent (sent on every page request), serve a template accounting for the device requesting the content. You can make it much better delving deeper with things like Jquery mobile, which makes it more native app like. But it's a big time investment.
