Newgrounds Mobile App 2013-08-02 12:10:10 Reply

It is really surprising to me that there are no mobile apps for newgrounds. Just think about it, the best community website of the internet (in my opinion), music, games, and flash, all in the palm of your hand, and doesnt take up much space too. We should atleast have a app for the forum, that would be fresh

The last thing I need if for Newgrounds to be another one of those annoying websites that pester me with stupid "we have an app" popups everytime I visit them. As it is I maintain a boycott list of sites that do that.

There's an unofficial mobile version of newgrounds : http://www.newgroundsmobile.com/
I'd really like to see an official mobile version of the site (m.newgrounds.com or something).

some phones don't really support the flash able to watch movies on newgrounds (android for example). just a simple forum app would be okay that we could use to browse the forums quick and easy, without all the hassle on the regular internet browser on some phones

I don't see your problem.

It is not a "problem" as you would say, it is just that i believe that there should be a simple forum app for newgrounds. It doesn't have to happen immediately, but i would enjoy it.

Are you sure? My phone plays flash fine. The fourms don't exactly have any hassle on it either.

It should when I get it every time I go on the site. And when I already have an app for the site. I call it a web browser. You app fanboys should check it out.

I tried making one from scratch, but it's too buggy and problematic since there are still many phones out there tht don't exactly support flash well.

I was going to try to make a simple link app that took you to Newgrounds mobile, but got busy and not sure if it would be needed since you could just bookmark it. Not only that, but it's not exactly optimized for a phone.

Problem is, the app hasn't worked since late February. I downloaded it myself and dropped a donation. Same thing with an Art Portal app by the same developer.

Also, If NG really needed an Android app they would have at least proposed something for the Flash Portal, if the app could somehow find a way around the Flash limitations on Droid for the user.

What makes you think that would happen if NG had an app?

Yeah go ahead and clog up your phone with 200 unnecessary website apps. You know Newgrounds would shove it down our thoughts if it had an app. App developers will have it no other way. It makes them feel important.
