Thanks!

  • I use my phone to see if there are any new articles and if there are, then I access them from my PC. If I’m far away from home and really feel like reading the article soon, then I read it on my phone but I never make comments on the phone – comments on PC only.
    I have a Samsung phone.

  • Occasionally check on my phone, but mostly use a computer. Would be great to have a app which was easier to use than a mobile browser

  • I have always used a Phone for Sharks world and Its one of the best websites to view on my phone as its just so simple and clean, actually prefer phone to PC for SW as there are no ads.

    They only problem I have ever come across on Nokia (current phone) Iphone and Blackberry, is many of the links that are not articles just come up with blank pages, For example “Currie cup Fixtures and log 2013″ Is just a blank article. This is not the case for all of them as “Currie cup Fixtures & Results 2011″ Does actually have the full fixtures and results.

    An app would be really nice is if that’s even an idea of yours, also Polls are awesome and should be used a lot more :D a comparison I would make is I use http://www.nufcblog.com/ just as much as I use Sharks world, and their use of polls adds a lot of interaction. :)

  • so just to get you all up to speed…. I’m working on an Android app for Sharksworld. I guess I will ave to do an iPhone one as well at some stage, but the fact that Apple force you to develop on a Mac kind of limits my scope a bit.

  • @robdylan (Comment 26) : when I lived in the US I went into the mac store and I told the sales guy that, he then said to me that to spec out a dell to the same specs as a macbook was more expensive than the mac. My hubby and I both bought laptops 2 years ago (mine a macbook pro and his a top of the line asus (more expensive than my macbook pro) guess which one died a couple of months after the warranty ran out ;) I still have my first macbook that I use to occupy the kids in times of need and it is 7 years old. I can still leave it unplugged running a movie and get more than an hour out of the original battery.

  • Would love the app for my Blackberry Z10, but if that can’t happen, maybe you can port it over to BB10(very very easy, can do it in about 10 minutes). Otherwise I’ll sideload the Android version.

    I access SW with whatever is handy. When at work, I’ll use the pc. When not at work and not at home, my phone. When at home, the tablet mostly…

  • @robdylan (Comment 28) : I believe its not to hard if you know the basics of .NET the apps are written in C#, I don’t know the first thing about writing code though its the reason I refused to do IT in school. Will your android app at least have Tablet optimization? I have the original 10.1 which I use fairly regularly for reading SW so If its a choice between android app and android app then I will get the app on that :P but please with the tablet optimization :) .

  • @robdylan (Comment 44) : Got the Nokia Lumia 820 when in the Uk. I chose this as it was £100 cheaper then both the S3 and the Iphone 5 at the time, with pretty much exactly the same spec/ features.

    I find the UI to be very clean and easy to use, prefer the customization of WP and Android compared to the liner feel of Iphone.

    Literally the only downside of this phone is the lack of app’s but they are slowly starting to coming, News24 have a Beta app out which is actually really good. And of cause it has the basics like Facebook and twitter which all run fast and well.

  • Wouldn’t it be easier to change to a more responsive theme, rather than build an app from scratch?

    Info: If I’m watching rugby I use Asus Memopad, unless my wife’s got it – then it’s S3. Hate typing on the Samsung, though. Any other time on my Acer work laptop.

  • @robdylan (Comment 80) : I know. :grin:

    On a serious note, though. About 6 months ago I also decided to teach myself JS so downloaded SDK 6, Eclipse and also Netbeans. I started with the Oracle tutorials and also others I found on Youtube and the net, but somehow it didn’t “click” in my head.

    Then I Googled “The easiest way to develop Android Apps” and got to Google App Inventor. I played around with it for a day or so and it helped me a lot to visualise the logic behind scripting, how variables work, etc.

    I still find learning JS a huge challenge, but GAI changed the way I understand the subject matter. I don’t know how difficult you find it – to me it made a big difference seeing in graphical terms how an App is put together.

  • @robdylan (Comment 77) : I’d be happy to help where I can so let me know what you decide. Do keep in mind (although you’re no doubt aware of this) that a code repository like GitHub or similar pretty much becomes a requirement at that point.

  • @robdylan (Comment 15) : Check this out.

    http://xamarin.com/

    It allows you to dev in .Net and deploy to Android and iOS. Very cool. Obviously there are some platform differences at the UI and OS level but if you don’t need to access OS functionality (which seems to be the case) then you only have to duplicate effort at the UI level.

  • @klempie (Comment 86) : if you can find something that works the other way round – i.e. allows me to write in Java, but deploy to iOS and Windows, that would be just gravy

  • @robdylan (Comment 88) : Java?? Pah. Anyway, don’t know what you mean by “other way around”. Are you saying you want to go from Android to Windows Phone and iOS?

  • @robdylan (Comment 87) : In short, Mono is open source implementation of .Net. Xamarin are the commercial supporters thereof.

  • @Seth101 (Comment 93) : oh right, ok.

    The guy narrating the video had a very distinct “Joburg Jewish” kind of accent. To me, anyway, but what do I know? :)
