Giants software forum app

Post by Michael5941 » Sun Nov 12, 2017 9:16 am

Is there any future plans to create a app to view the forums I don't have a PC but I do have a Android tablet and I would love a app that basically allows me to get on the forums to view or create topics on farming simulator 17. it would hopefully be more convenient than constantly opening Google everytime b/c Google runs horribly on my tablet. If there is already a app for Android please tell me because I couldn't find one when I was looking for it. I also think a lot of people would agree with me about having a mobile app for this website would be a good idea.

There's load of browsers available on the playstore. Some or all will allow you to add a website to the home screen too, so just go here viewforum.php?f=875 and then tap the little three dots at the top or bottom of the screen and then tap add to home screen.

There's an app called tapatalk it allows you to use multiple forums at once. But it doesn't allow half of the operations the browser version does. Also if Google runs so horribly on your tablet check your memory. As Google is the native browser on Android it is optimised to run smoothly. If there are problems with it running your storage space and/cache usage may be excessive. Try clearing those out regular in your settings app on the tablet

That's a great idea Michael5941. I know they have a server app, but it would be cool if they had a forum app as well.

We have no plans to do that. Tapatalk should work and chrome works fine on most tablets. AN app for the forums would be a bit over the top I think.

Oh lol everyone's thinking I'm going to make app. no I'm not going to make a app b/c I don't know how to make a app lol. I guess I worded the "so I'll make it lol" part wrong what I meant to say is "so I'll make it without a app lol" sorry for the misunderstanding.
