Interest in a PhotographyCorner Mobile App?

The software that this forum runs on (vBulletin) has just released a mobile app (info here: http://www.vbulletin.com/mobile). Would there be interest in this? There's a purchase cost of $99, then whatever time it takes me to set up. Thoughts? Want it? It would work on iPhone's and Android phones...

Re: Interest in a PhotographyCorner Mobile App?

It seems that $99 is a bargain here - from looking briefly at the blurb you can customise the software to basically create an app that gives you the corner on a phone / ipad?

So - rather than go for donations - stick it on the app store at 99c (59p in the UK) and then hopefully people will buy - have a look on the app store for other photography related apps and you will see what is selling and what isn't.

I think that this would be a great thing for the corner - and would hopefully drive some revenue via click throughs as well?

My understanding is that this is a more efficient portal then using your portable device's web browser as it's dealing with the data / images directly - is that right?

Just think - the little photography corner symbol appearing on the apple store and on peoples' mobile devices - how much kudos is that?



Andy

ps. make certain that it does the iPad as well . . but native . . .

Re: Interest in a PhotographyCorner Mobile App?

I think I'd rather have it free in the iTunes and Android marketplace... rather than charging $.99... people are cheap. $99 isn't much upfront (though people can chip in if they want). Hopefully it won't take much time for me to set up... we'll see. Would love to know at least a couple dozen people would use it before I invent my time in money in it, though... know what I mean?

Re: Interest in a PhotographyCorner Mobile App?

How about adding TapaTalk to this forum? It's a really nice app for forums and it already exists (although it's not free for the app). Don't know what (if any) costs are involved in setting it up.

Re: Interest in a PhotographyCorner Mobile App?

I'll admit it, Tim: I'm an app addict. Therefore, I wouldn't mind having an app. The question, though, is what exactly would it provides that's different than simply using the built-in browser? I run Android 2.2, and using the default browser, I can read through this site just fine.

Re: Interest in a PhotographyCorner Mobile App?

I'd be interested in an app, in most cases I like a well made app over going to a web site. Exception might be the deviant art website, their mobile website is app worthy as is...
The advantage to an app is it can be setup to maximize what the phone will do. I also think a native ipad mode would be fabulous.

I've looked into TapaTalk in the past... there are a couple of reasons that I haven't implimented it to date. 1) the app costs $2.99 for each person 2) If I don't want their branding and ads on it, it costs me $1800 upfront 3) I've heard from other forum admins that they're kind of a headache to deal with.

In addition, after looking at the vBulletin mobile suite, it looks like it's a better build than tapatalk, as it works ONLY with this forum software, so it's a little cleaner to use...

Well, it would actually do less than using a built in browser... from what I can tell, it's a stripped down version of the site - less loads, it's more compact. It's smaller-screen friendly.

Pretty much. Even as a mod, you'll be able to do some mod stuff from your phone, too.
