TouchBB iPhone Forum Reader

#1 Post by gregf » Fri 05 Feb 2010, 3:26 am

Gday.

Some time ago I downloaded (read bought) an "app" for the iPhone that reads PHP Being boring forums.
The intention was to use it to read our forum here.

What they did not say at the time was that a script must be installed on the server for the app to work. :evil:

Should I complain and get my $1 back ? :lol:

Or may be it's worth a try. :think:

Here is a link to the server stuff.
:arrow: http://www.messageforums.net/iphoneforumreader.php

Can someone let me know if it feasible to try this out or not ?
If not, I can demand my dollar back or at least leave some bad f/b for them. :wink:

Testing testing. One two too tooo.

Seems to be working well. I can see all
topics and PMs and see in post photos.
Links in posts work well too. The only thing
I don't see is members avatar and stats
which are normally in the left margin.

Let's see if I can upload a photo.

Uh oh. There is one limitation with it that would probably be an issue for many of us.

You cannot get to the end of long threads without scrolling all the way thru.
So to post on our eBay&bootlegs thread, you would have to scroll, scroll, scroll.

But this is top of their issue list and there is a workaround by amending the server script.

They look like putting a fix in the iPhone app. So I do not want to bother you with this yet S.
