Getting a Forum iOS App


(Mark Hunte) #1

Hi @Daniel,

I was looking over the Discourse forum to see if they did an IOS App to allow users to get Notifications, and interaction with a given forum site. Similar to the wordpress and Stackoverflow apps.

There seems to be other asking for this https://meta.discourse.org/t/discourse-mobile-app/35178/11

And I wondered if you could also ask them on behalf of this site, which may go towards the number of requests influencing them making one.

Cheers.

If the forum is compatibile the app works very well. if not you can still read the feed

Thanks Michel,

This does not look like it would do push Notifications?
Personally I try to only use apps by the same company rather than give out login details to third party apps.

Discourse has a nice API, so my understanding is that you could create an app that creates a wrapper around the website, with some bonus native features like push notifications. So the login / password info would only be sent to our servers.

Looks like an app was released:

Also, the forums have been updated to 1.7.

Thanks @DHSupport!

For anyone else who wants to use it they will need to enter the full forum web address.
