    I'd like to know if this website will ever change into an app that is usable on the phone. I know some people can access this website through the internet on the mobile phone, however my Samsung Galaxy s5 takes forever to really launch the website.

    My reasons why this website should go on mobile
    - It's an easy tool to use during vacations and waiting
    - More advertisement brings more people

    I'm just suggesting this, therefore there is really no confirmation on this decision.

    This has come up a number of times before (the one linked is the most recent), but the gist of it is that the forum, at least the FragZone skin but the rest to a fair degree, are quite well-adapted to mobile web and making one just isn't in the cards. If you're having specific issues you can narrow down, though, we do want it to be as mobile-friendly as possible. I bring this tool up from time to time on that subject https://search.google.com/test/mobile-friendly

    (per original revision - I read everything. Also, Ogre's Hall is mainly for staff postings, hence the automoderation)

    Alright, took this website for a test and found it to have some "page loading issues", perhaps it's just my wifi then. Thanks for notifying me about this post. I'll make sure to now post in the Ogre Hall discussion thread. Thanks for the heads up pure. :)

    Also, if you'd like I can just take this post down, since it's already been brought up before.

    You just mean an app right? We already on mobile:).

    In fact, that was one of the main reasons why we made the switch to Xenforo finally:).

    Yeah I just meant an app. I've recently went on the mobile version and it's working pretty sharp :)

    An app would only be possible if it was easy and without cost. Since I bought developer licenses through bundles it is not entirely out of the realm of possibility:).

    It may be too much, but I think it could be like Twitter so the mobile just simplifies it all and makes it easier. I figure it could help since a lot of AQ3D players are on mobile and this site is so heavily linked to the game right now.

    Thanks to whoever merged me, and good to know! Thanks Ogreman!

    I agree. It would be pretty cool if Gameogre has an app for mobile

    I think seeing alerts as mobile push notifications would be very helpful, which is really the only reason I would prefer an app.

    I have used GameOgre Forums on my phone's web browser and it has worked just fine. It comes in handy sometimes when i want to check what's happening here when i don't have access to my laptop.

    The forum is on mobile devices better now than years ago because of the move to Xenforo. Think Vbulletin was not good on Mobile at all. Remember trying a plugin to just get it to work a little lol.

    However, we do not have an official app yet.

    Oh? That would be nice if it ever becomes reality. I would get it to use GameOgre Forums on my phone more even when i got access to my PC.
