Mobile access

Postby Jitsufreak » Thu Aug 12, 2010 1:12 pm | #1

I've elected not to create a full mobile version of PJ; opting instead to support a couple of apps that you can use on your smartphone.

Tapatalk
Supported devices: iPhone, BlackBerry, Android, and Nokia


Forum Runner
Supported devices: iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch


Both of these apps are available in free and paid versions; the free versions being read-only, and with fewer features. Whilst these apps only give access to the core forum features (topics, PMs, search), they do provide very streamlined, efficient browsing.


You can, of course, always access the full site with your mobile web browser. This is actually the only way to access all of the areas of the site; journals, arcade, articles etc.

As a fAndroid, I have not been able to test the Forum Runner app. If someone could try it, and let us know what it's like, that'd be cosmic.

I can say that Tapatalk works very nicely on Android though. Just search for "Jitsu" and you'll find us; PJ was the only result returned when I searched.

Can't find the app, or PJ once you're in the app?

Tried Forum Runner but don't like. No option for viewing unread posts. [ PJ ] works fine in full version on my iPhone over WiFi.

I tried this (android - Hero) and it worked fine for reading the forum on the demo version.  But then it wouldn't let me post without buying the £2.99 full version.

Understandable, I guess, but frustrating!

I got tapatalk on my BB storm 2 and am having issues with it crashing on me. Any ideas?

I use tapatalk on my Android HTC Desire.

I have to say, it really is worth however much it cost (bought it back in December). Everything's laid out nicely, new posts and topics are shown first.....once you get to grips with it its really handy.

The only trouble with it is that there's no access to Journals. But even so, I prefer browsing PJ through tapatalk tbh  :D
