ForumRunner now supported on WWP - mobile browsing

    Minor announcement that could be helpful for some. There is a smartphone application available for Android and iPhone called ForumRunner that makes it a bit easier to check up on the site from the road.

    I have configured the server and installed the necessary addons so that it is supported, and you are welcome to give the software a try if you wish. The app itself is not free from the user standpoint, so please make your own decision on whether you feel it is worthwhile to you.

    I decided to pony up the $1.99 for it on my phone and so far have no regrets. It's not ZOMG AMAZING but it does a waaaaaay better job of quickly loading the forums than trying to do it from a browser. All in all, for me, it was worth it. YMMV.

    For more info about the product, visit their website:

    There is a free version out there if you search the market.

    The site is fine in the standard browser of my Iconia A500 tablet running Android 3.2, except for two minor things:
    • When I reply, I have to do it twice to pick up the quote.
    • YouTube videos (just YT, I think) appear as black rectangle, with the static preview for all of them appearing in the upper left of the page (not the screen). Pressing the center of a black rectangle opens a YouTube tab playing the video.
    On my Motorola Milestone, running Android 2.2, I still prefer the browser over ForumRunner, and don't get the problem above. It can be a bit sluggish, but it's an ancient two-year old phone.

    Mod Edit: Please don't post links to commercial products on WWP. Such spamming will get you banned.
