Dragonmount App

Recommended Posts

Any thoughts on having an app for Dragonmount?

 

Some pros:

 

1. It would be much quicker

2. It would look coool

3. More people would learn about the WoT series and would read in then join Dragonmount

4. There aren't any decent WoT apps

If there were one I would download it as I access DM primarily through my phone. And the desktop version, while not fitting my phone's browser as well as the mobile version, looks cleaner, neater and provides me more information about updated threads at a glance. So if there were a DM APP I would be looking for it to fit my phone well but also provide me that information quickly and neatly in some way.

This is an open board. You can post here all you want :smile:

Well if anyone does begin developing one is be more than happy to beta. I'm sure it'd be easy to put out a call to folk who mostly us DM on their phones.

I prefer doing this on my laptop but I'm moving a lot so my phone is how I check in. I'll be moving to an s5 or and s6 galaxy in a little over a week so I may get a bigger screen but I still prefer the desktop site to the mobile one. I'd like the mobile one more if I could see who posted most recently on a thread or if the mobile aesthetics were more similar to the desktop.

I don't really like using my phone when I have the possiblity to use my pc, but I could see the advantages (both for many people here and for the activity levels on the site) of such an app.

I support having an app. 

 

One of the reasons I wanted to learn app development was to make a DM app (solely for my use if it doesn't turn out well which I don't think it will) but I never got around to learning app development. 

 

If someone makes one, can I see how an app is developed behind the scenes?

As long as its done through the proper channels and all of that, I'd be good with that. I just got my first smart phone so new apps sound fun :P

And here I thought I was the last person on earth to get a smartphone a few years ago.

Why not!? How do you live?!

Sorry - that's just me being geeky about smart phones. If you do end up getting a smartphone -

 

an iPhone is definitely the BEST choice.

 

any android lovers - do you dare challenge me on that one

No.

 

Never, ever make the mistake of buying an Apple product. It immediately means everything has to be Apple, as there's (at least historically, and knowing Apple I doubt that's changed in the last few years) two different systems to connect devices. Standard, and Apple.

Android ftw.

 

1. Android phones are cheaper and I can get a pretty good Android phone in my range. If I want an iPhone within similar range, I'll have to go for older generations and my extended family had experienced problems with older generations crashing a lot once new generations are released.

 

2. Contrary to what people say, I don't find iPhone significantly easier to use.

 

3. iPhone may have better graphics and better memory management and an Android might need higher specs to get the same performance but such Androids are easier to find.

 

4. Androids have a much more competitive market so I can find something that suits me better. Maybe it's the size, maybe the better graphics or something else.

 

5. New iPhone and airpod thing. I don't want to spend more money on some similar to what I have. I may have better headphones but be unable to use them with my phone because someone decided that there should only be airpods used.

 

6. Now I heard that iPhone have more apps but from my experience those apps aren't targetted at Indian market. The kind of apps that I use that are available for free on app store.

 

 

TL;DR Unless you are rich or live somewhere where getting iPhone is much easier or do something that requires Apple, Android is the better choice.

I can't agree with you on that point.

 

point number one

iPhones get the best apps first.

 

 

Even though the iPhone has a smaller market share, developers still tend to make the best apps for iOS first.

 

Yes, you can find most of the same popular apps on Android, but they don't always have the better features and designs.

 

If you care about having the best apps on your phone, you're better off with iPhone.

Btw this is a friendly debate :wink:

Point Number Two

 

They're better looking.

 

With a few exceptions like the gorgeous HTC One and Xiaomi Mi Note, there aren't many great-looking Android phones out there. Many are chunky and plasticky.

 

The iPhone consistently has a better designs than Android phones.

Point Number Three

 

AP

Apple Pay is still in its early days, but so far Apple is the only company that has created an easy-to-use mobile-payments platform that is accepted at a lot of major retailers. Plus, Apple has support from most major credit-card companies and banks.

I'm Dutch, I have iDeal, so I don't care about easy-to-use payments as I can basically always use iDeal, which seriously is the easiest you're ever going to get.

Quite well actually, I just use internet when I'm not busy with family, work, or other important things.  Keeps it from consuming me.  I'm easily addicted to gaming so it keeps me away from those app games that could really screw me up again.  I'm almost tempted to quit facebook, I'm trying to use it as it was meant to, contacting old lost friends or what not.  It's been good.  Not having a smart phone really makes any time I have with friends or family have to be over the phone or in person so I find it helps the quality of friendships.  I think DM is my guilty pleasure in a way.  This and facebook, other than bills and the necessary stuff that's online now, I don't do much.  Sure some articles here and there but I'm one of those rare people who still likes to read a real newspaper.

    • When was the vote on how many people are allowed to immigrate? I must have missed that one.
    • Everytime you vote in federal elections.   There was a vote. Every Congress which does nothing is a vote to not do anything. 
    • My position is that we should have never been in this position to begin with.   Representation? Where was mine when a vote was taken to let in a million immigrants a year? That's obviously just rhetoric. There was no vote.
    • My guess is that the WOT will have nudity (possibly quite a lot depending on how they handle pillow friends and the White Tower), and some sexual situations but it wont be in a very graphic way like GOT, but I cant imagine there not being nudity and sex. I think WOT will be solidly TV-MA but not as hard as GOT. Cursing will be the interesting thing, I suspect they will have some real cursing mixed in with the WOT style cursing. Wouldnt be surprised with a Graendal "orgy" scene that is pretty explicit for shock value.   I think the travelling people need to stay it's so important to the overall arc.   To be honest, much of Perrins arc can be just excised without really any loss, especially the endless Faile kidnapping thing.    I dont see them keeping the polygamy as is though. Not sure that would work.   To be honest, I am not so sure that the story doesn't get changed quite a bit right around the Lanfear/Moiraine fight. I could see them changing that entire Arc. And Taim should be corrected back as originally intended.   Bowl of the Winds? Not sure that adds a lot either. Shadar Logoth may be emphasized more. Fain may be more front and center.
    • They don't add much by themselves, but they sure do add a lot when we learn about who the Aiel once were and their hypocrisy.  The travelling people stayed true when the Aiel did not.  And that's MAJOR.
