I don't know if I'd pay. Google's phones allow for web push notifications. It's Apple that's the issue. But I feel we're so close to iOS changing that and finally allowing it.
I am not that up with apps etc.I believe the best argument for the mobile apps is that young people no longer search for forums they search for apps.
True, an app can be an extra channel for new visitors.I believe the best argument for the mobile apps is that young people no longer search for forums they search for apps.
True. Takes a lot to get movement.If they started development now, they probably would be done after the pandemic ends, so that's a somewhat futile argument.
An app.This was the reply from a staff member about a app.
I would too. We're desperate.I would definitely pay for a dedicated Xenforo mobile app. I switched from Vb to Xenforo to remain on the cutting edge of forum technology. At the time Xenforo was the easy choice and I would like for it to remain that way.
You are spot on.I am not that up with apps etc.
But I do know that most young people do not know what a forum is, or a message board, or a bulletin board.
If you google forum, you also get live meetings as in a government, or medical forum etc.
I have mentoned this on other threads and other forums, as to how we can get new members.
I am an older guy, and If I start a new hobby or interest, I always search for any forums on it.
But young ones will probably go to FB or YT.
They will not search for a forum, if they do not know what a forum is.
I somewhat doubt that there is a large difference between forums.Most people keep using the web interface, even if you push them to install the app. This will be different for every type of forum.
I have no such restrictions with xenforo and in fact I see no functional difference at all sharing files whether it be FB, xF, snapchat, etc. Of course, I don't use apps at all, haven't seen the need to do so. Just browser to webpage.From the camera or my phone file system, i can share a pic on facebook, or a textmsg, or insta, or snapchat.... but i cannot share to a webpage - MY SITE - even if it's mobile friendly.
