Tonight I am on my new gallery tab TWO it’s replacing the , original and I have to say navigation is difficult at best. So I thought I would ask ain’t it about time for a Lumberjocks app I mean come on really ain’t it past time I suggest a Apple and Android app for the TWO most common platforms.

Feedback desired.

App would provide menus that are easier to see and text boxes you don’t have to zoom and Moore to follow a thread . Post projects including a camera function for easy uploads and your ideas too

I’d love an android app.
Or at least a mobile version of the site.

An app (IOS and android)/mobile version is really the only thing this site is lacking for me. That, and more chocolate.

I agree! App=pared down version of the site which has more phone/tablet friendly layout and interface. I usually use my iOS tablet to peruse and upload. Tablets are nice for the shop and carpenters on the go.

The site on an iPad is fine but an app for iOS on the iPhone would be great.

I agree that a better mobile experience would be great, doesn’t necessarily need to be an app for me, mobile version of the site would be great.

I have seen a lot of apps that are really nothing more than a mobile site, if an app provides more functionality than a site can then by all means an app is great, if it is just a glorified website, I would rather just bookmark in the browser than install another app.

Just my 2 cents

I posted a similar request, simply for a mobile version of the site, 1649 days ago. Still waiting.

I agree with Whisperer – this site needs more chocolate (with peanut butter)

I believe this is in our suggestion thread and all are being looked at by our IT guys. The coding for this site doesn’t work well with the apps we had looked at. I will ask about this again tomorrow.

If I didn’t have to load my pics from my iPhone to my computer to upload and post… well, my fellow LJs would get sick of me and I would get less work done. I do a lot and photo document everything. Yet.. yes I would like an mobile app.
