Tiki Central iPhone app? Why not?

Will Tiki Central ever have an iPhone app? I want to be able to add photos with my phone in the field or on vacation/event.
It would make uploading photos faster without the aid of uploading to a computer then to the site.

Just a question of why not?

Thanks,
Fuzz

there is an app called tapatalk that makes viewing & using phpbb3 based forums much easier. the owner of the forum has to enable/add the code for it to work, as well as the user has to purchase the app for their respective smart phone.

i run it on a forum i admin, and it's pretty nice. the users have really taken to it.

There was a post in the Ohana section requesting it:
http://www.tikiroom.com/tikicentral/bb/viewtopic.php?topic=39011&forum=15

I sent a message via the "Contact Tiki Central" asking about it... so we'll see. But I will say that browsing on my android isn't too terrible, and double tapping in a thread formats itself pretty well to the smaller screen.

Any movement on tapatalk being enabled? As I've said previously, I would post more often if I could upload photos to tiki central from my iPhone.

I've been using my iPhone instead of my PC to interact with TC for over a year now. I take and upload photos to the threads on a regular basis and find it very easy to work with. Not only is the phone much faster than my desktop dinosaur the camera on it is much better than my standalone digital camera.

I can view the site on my Galaxy 3 but I can't seem to upload pictures. I'd vote for an app for that!

Just a heads up on this. First off, Tapatalk is not compatible with Tiki Central. Tapatalk is designed to work with "off the shelf" phpbb based forums which TC is not. To get TC to have a special smart phone interface would require some in depth coding from Hanford which may be on his "to do" list but is probably not near the top. We can certainly keep hoping though.

I too primarily interact with TC through iPhone and iPad. This will only become more and more prevalent as time goes on.

I was hoping for a direct neural interface, wireless of course
with an option to stimulate sense areas of the brain
which I could set in preferences, Your other suggestions are primitive....

Question. Is it just because of the image uploading issue, or are there other reasons?

Here on an iPad right now down in the tiki lounge, and have to say typing in a forum with this screen keyboard sucks.

For years we've been thinking about what killed Tiki Central. Always assumed Facebook was the number one culprit.

But apparently smartphones had their part in the slaying, too.

While I think you're right about different social media having their affect, I feel the people here had more to do with it. Not that it's not an issue in other environments, but it seemed more...personal, here.

I've been preaching for a while that tikicentral desperately needs to run a more modern style of vbb. A big concern is mobile viewing - more and more traffic these days is done on mobile devices, especially cellphones. This forum is unfortunately NOT compatible to mobile phones. Responsive design, or at least a mobile alternate, is so important. I'd happily chip in to help with an upgrade.

An upgrade to TC would be nice, but that would be a HUGE undertaking which would take lots of time and may also cost lots of money. I recall someone posting here (Hakalugi?) that there is quite a gap in the current TC technology and current board technology, so it would be a matter of months and not days to upgrade and migrate all the text and images.

Some keep mentioning "the death of TC due to past people here." Who gives a flying $%#& - they're generally not causing trouble now, and more trouble makers can join at any time. Plus, it's not as if Facebook is free from all controversy either. This last detail really gets me because it's so blatantly unrealistic -- how pure-as-the-driven-snow are Facebook conversations? What happens on Facebook fades quickly - it is a now-and-in-the-moment social network, so stuff can expire and goes away pretty quickly.

Our current Tiki Central system is a pretty decent and searchable repository. I'm glad we have it, despite the fact that it's not using latest-and-greatest technology. But eventually the software may require a major upgrade otherwise this system will not be able to continue running. I'm guessing that Hanford has this in the back of his mind. But he may already be working on some sort of a future transition plan.
