Newgrounds Mobile 2009-03-19 18:07:01 Reply

I was on the web from my phone today, and I was thinking about the idea of having a Newgrounds Mobile. I know you can't view games or flash on your phone's web really since it doesn't suppose flash player -- but think about being able to access your PMs, the forums, and all that good stuff from your phone?

I think the staff should whip up a version of the site, which is cellphone friendly. This would really help the community, I think. And I could just go on the site on the go, rather than caring around my ipod touch or laptop.

The url could be like; (www.newgrounds.com/m) or (http://m.newgrounds.com) or something similar to that. It'll just be a good idea, I think that would really help out the site.

Share your opinion. :)

Another good idea would to get a mobile app for the apple store for ipod touches and iphones. That'll really be a nice gadget to toy around with.

I've been on the site a couple of times with my pda/phone via wifi and browsed the forums. It's difficult to navigate with all the stuff going on with the page. a stripped down mobile version would be nice but is unlikely.

iPhones barely do. I think they have flash player 5 or some stupid shit.

I used to go on Newgrounds PSP and it loaded fine, it was pretty fun, actually.

My HTC Touch can go on Newgrounds fine, mind you it's a tad on the slow side. The iPod Touch / iPhone is great for web browsing, except the lack of a Flash player, so no voting for viewing Flash :(

That'd be a good Idea, with Newgrounds ringtones too!

New userpages don't like that idea.

I think it would be cool to be able to answer PMs and shit via texting and get updates.

THAT would be cool. :)

The forums work on iPhones. So do userpages. Flash movies and games do not though.

Yeah, imagine getting Tom Fulp to say something everytime you open something on ur iPhone. Like, "Congratulations, you're as cool as Luis!"

Sadly, it will turn sour when someone sees a NSFW cock joke over your shoulder....

Meh, I can just go on newgrounds with my iTouch using safari, the app would need internet access anyways, so you might as well use the safari to go on newgrounds.


Yeah, whatever. PSN ID: REDSiN66

That would be awesome, and they really need to pay more attention to the PSP downloads as well. But NG mobile, yes, that would be FUCKING AWESOME!

As long as it works on my PSP.

We experimented with that nearly four years ago:

http://www.newgrounds.com/bbs/topic/3792 50

Other than small apps that Mike's putting together at the moment, I doubt that there'll be any impetus to create a working version of the full site in the immediate future, since the last time we toyed with that stuff, it wasn't utilised often.

Everyone talking about accessing Newgrounds with iTouches -- I'm talking about the people that DON'T have iTouches. For the people with web on their phone, and such. And besides, To liljim -- That was four years ago. Technology has advanced now and mostly everyone has a cellphone nowadays. I'm sure more people will use it now.

And about Mike making apps, that's pretty rad to hear (:

By the time phones reach the point technologically where they can make use of the full range of services newgrounds provides there will be no need for a mobile version.

I really don't think it's worth all the effort for the amount of people who will use it.

That was ages ago liljim. It's a brave new world where more and more people have the internet in their pocket and expect for the sites they visit regularly to have a mobile version.
