Is there any mobile functionality with ATS on Android phones? Or are any apps in the works?
Thank you sir. There is no, hopefully in the works though as the site isn't even setup for mobile viewing, at least when I tried from my android
phone, i was met with the full site, having to pinch and zoom, i gave it 3 minutes and got frustrated and gave up.
As a suggestion..... for a mobile app, you might want to look at what slashdot.org has done, there are a few different apps on there, but most contain
the same functionality.
Namely, they understand that it's retarded to try to preserve full forum functionality on a phone app. So, instead, they offer basically what we see
here on the "home" page, a listing of current or trending articles. Maybe even just a viewer and links to your profile so you can star or flag
articles for yourself to comment on later, or even implement a commenting system but I'd rather not see the forum full of :
"Iz pstin fromx mah phonzzzz"
Really, that's the only feature I'd really like to see soon, an actual mobile app or mobile formatted version of the main page to browse top stories
while i text and drive (j/k i don't drive)
