    *** Info regarding our app ***

    Fanatics -

    Just wanted to touch base with you all regarding our mobile app.

    As most of you know, it currently does not work. We are fully aware of this. Here's the deal. In the past, that app has done nothing but lose CF money. It takes away pageviews, ad impressions, etc. Plus, there's a bit of an ownership issue between the app developers and CF.

    We fully understand how important being mobile is. If you go to CF's mobile site, Jeremy has done a great job with it. I actually like it better than the app itself. We still lose impressions and revenue when folks visit the mobile site but this is something that I'll spend a lot of this week working on.

    Having said all of that, if you or someone you know builds quality apps and would be interested in a project like this, please shoot me an email to chris.m.will@gmail.com. I'd love to consider you for this project.

    Chris

    Re: *** Info regarding our app ***

    Have to agree that the new mobile site you've (or Jeremy) put together is even better than the previous app. More features, easy to use and easy to read... Apps typically are a lose money or break even project, so the decision makes perfect sense to me!!

    I would be fine without having the app back. The mobile site is great.

    I have a dumb question...how do you get to the mobile site? On my phone (droid x) it just brings up the regular page. Usually it automatically redirects to the mobile one on other sites.

    You will have to manually change the style on your mobile device. There's a drop down at the bottom of the page that will let you do this.

    I like the new mobile site far better than the app (and it doesn't crash all the time). If the mobile site had a "new posts" button on every page, I would be more than happy if you never did an app.

    Scroll to the bottom red bar on a page w/ a drop-down menu. Change from "CF Desktop" to "CF Mobile". I think that should work.

    This. A million times this. I realize there is a "What's New" link on the homepage, but this is not really convenient for those of us CF addicts who need to constantly refresh.

    This. Add the new posts feature and the mobile site would be perfect. (And maybe a way to look at the social groups)

    I really like the new mobile interface. I agree that it is much better than the app, which I'm probably going to delete as soon as I get around to it.

    Yeah go ahead and delete the app. Chances are that one will never be used again.

    I have a meeting on Wednesday to get a new app developed. Stay tuned.
