Solved Android app now available

Post by kungfupoodle on Sat 19 Nov 2011, 1:38 pm

Here is the brand new CB500 forum app for android phones/tablets.

Major edit: Now includes the ability to log-in and post messages!

It's been rebranded as TwinPot Tapper so if you've used the previous version you will have to uninstall it first.

To login, use the menu button and select login. Privacy statement: Your password will be remembered on the phone (private from other applications ) and will be sent to the CB500 forum site for the purposes of logging in. No information is sent back to me.

Get it here

(instructions: before installing you must go to settings->applications and tick 'Unknown sources'. Then copy the file to your phone over usb or email it to yourself or use bluetooth etc etc.. Open your file manager on your phone and select the file to install it.. then run it)

Version history:
Rebranded as TwinPot Tapper. Version: 0.1b.
- The ability to login and reply to posts.

Revision (0.0.3b)
- displays time message was posted below author's name
- created launch icon based on Forum logo

First revision (0.0.2b):
- now formats html in posts (including click-able links)
- displays author's name above posts

Thanks for the feedback! I was leaving design until last but it could use an icon to help you find it Smile I'll have a look.

Just noticed the main forum list shows which sub-fora has new posts but the sub-fora themselves don't highlight which threads they're in.

The thread doesn't show the new post after you send it until you've backed out & gone back in. It's certainly not a problem if you know about it but it'll invite multiple posts.

Thinking about it, it actually saves download bandwidth so its not too bad a feature to have if your not hooked up to wifi.

I have not decided what to do when you go back to a previous page. In order to see if anything has changed (e.g. if a topic has a new post) I need to reload the entire page. Maybe a refresh button but then you'd need something to tell you it needed refreshing...

Thanks for the bug reports.. here's one of my own.. you can only see the first page of any topic.. Laughing

This is so amazing I can't really tell you just how incredible it is Smile

It works on my phone perfectly. And it's quick too, not taxing on resources.

I think the only way beat this would be to have the page send a redirect to the forum thread after a message is sent. If you have an 'automatic' refresh button that will each into people's bandwidth because it will have to keep checking the server to see if it's worth refreshing.

cool.. 2 testers..
sorry, I thought I'd get around to doing some work on it over xmas but didn't Smile..
Its really fast on wifi but rather sucks on gsm and if you haven't noticed it can get a bit stuck and fail altogether - and you get no indication of what's going on. I need to re-write it somewhat to make it a bit more robust - as it is its just something I hacked together to see if it worked.. watch this space..
