People still use BlackBerrys? Aren't they like "Betamax" of smart phones these days?


Not a chance. Blackberry is still King in outlook synchronization, as well as the other main email platforms. Not much comes close to the possibilities on the management side either without a third party server.

Working great on the Ipad. Is there an easy way to just see the new posts for the entire site, or have I just not found it yet?

Stuart don't get me wrong it's nice. But what I am seeing now is a few of the sites I go to all have their own apps and it appears that all of them are using the same application, but each with its own splash screen.
...
Would it be possible for your sites to be listed in the main forum runner listings so we don't need 40 different copies of the same program and instead can only use one program, the real forum runner app.

Thanks.


DavidMi...

Seeing we do not have say what happens in the Forum Runner app itself, we can not allow for DBSTalk to be part of the app just in case.

A little history... when we tested Forum Runner as well as other apps, it could bring the site down as it was looking to deal with stock versions of VB. (the sites software platform.) This was not shocking to me actually (been their, done that). You see, we needed to modify the stock VB code to make it work as would like. As such, any plugins do not always work and actually can make for major issues. (Not just the Forum Runner plug in needed, but any general plugin we need to be careful with.)

So we worked with Forum Runner to make the app for us as we liked their platform. It took almost 1.5 months in coding and testing to make the app work as needed adding features it did not yet even have but knew we needed. Rob is just great to deal with.

In regards to it being found in the Forum Runner App, that was a mistake and it has now been removed based on the above.

Regards,

Looking at my next phone over the last 12 months, I looked at Blackberry, Apple, Android and others. What actually drove me to the iPhone was the multitude of reports that Gmail and Outlook mail/calendar/contact sync "just work." And you know what, that's pretty true. I'm having some residual issues with contact photo syncing over multiple phones but really, that's it.

Not wanting to drive it away from the main subject, but I'm primarily referring to Blackberry connecting to Exchange Outlook and a BES. The stock iPhone software can't really come close to it. As a primarily consumer device, the iPhone is great.

I also never thought I'd see DBSTalk get a NC17 rating. Only Apple :)

This really cool... Just downloaded... Only thing it seems to be missing is a way to view the headlines. Unless I'm missing it somewhere.

The headlines come from a separate plugin. I don't think you can get them through the app.

You guys are fast. I just went into the forum runner software and again searched for dbstalk and now you are listed. Thanks for the quick turnaround guys!

(Just avsforum is not listed.. hopefully they are soon!)

I've been using Forum Runner for almost a month with DBSTalk... it's been out there.

The one thing missing that forum runner has is the ability to mark favorite threads. Every time I log in with the app, I'm taken to the main menu and have to navigate to the main forums I use

It is nice to have a screen with an icon for the forum and sub forums that I visit regularly. I don't need the Dish forums to show up when I log in since o don't have Dish, nor do I ever participate in those forums.

My iphone is syncing pretty phenominally with two different corporate exchange servers. I'm not sure what it's not coming close to.

back to topic, love the new App, thanks!

Bingo! Downloaded it through the App Store.

Does "restricted to over 17" mean we get too childish? :)

Again, I'm offended myself that us Android (and other non-Iphone users) are neglected. I do not and will not pay AT&T's extortion to have an Iphone, as I won't pay for a device only usable on one carrier.

App developers seem to forget that Android is a much faster growing platform (as its devices are on every carrier, not just *ONE subpar carrier*)
