drummerworld app
 
Hi everyone

I was just curious if anyone else had wanted drummerworld to make an app for smartphones. I'd love it if they did. Does anyone know if this could happen because I'd be happy to purchase it too.

Open Drummerworld on your smart phone and drag the i'con to your home page or screen. That's what I did so that now when I want to go to DW on my phone I just open the page.

I was just going to start a thread about this. :o
Anyway, I would LOVE a Drummerworld app. Seriously, I would buy for a million bucks (well...). It would be so cool to have the informational section with the solos and clinic and then have this awesome forum in a smart-phone layout! What could be better!?

And if you do what I described above you can do all of that

Grunt, they mean an experience actually designed for mobile devices, not just the web version.

It looks like vBulletin has an extension similar to what is desired here, though that's only the forum section. Maybe there should be a Kickstarter to fund development of a paid app that includes videos and artist pages. I would definitely pay for that.

I understand what they want but I have no problem getting to the drummers, videos etc. at the bottom of the web page, is a link for the entire site. And it's free.
Unless I'm missing something this is what I have.

Great idea to do it this way.

I had mentioned this the other day actually, wishing they'd had an app.

I understand that it is easy to use the web browser on apple devices and the display is still very easy to use. However if they had an app design specifically for the smart phones, it would be neat.. Plus they could earn a little money off of us ;)

and they can earn a few extra dollars that way, i think.

Even just making the Web site responsive would be a big plus. At a certain point, an app and a fully responsive Web site are pretty much the same thing.

Exactly. For example, The Verge and Polygon both have great examples of mobile-optimized interfaces (try resizing your window of Polygon into a phone-sized screen and see what I mean), but of course, neither of them have vBulletin forums.

Neither of those sites was at all responsive in my Firefox laptop browser. Maybe I should try it on my Android. Check out http://gcbaz.com/ on a desktop or laptop browser and resize the window. Totally responsive.

Verge doesn't resize actively, but Polygon does subtly (notice the hero story section turns to a scrolling element and the menu bar loses elements as the window becomes smaller).

Yeah, I did notice the scrolling element, but on a smartphone, you could just swipe to peek at a bit more of the Web site. Responsiveness is very hot right now and for good reason - people are rolling out all types of freaky screen sizes and sites need to be able to resize their sites instantly. When I create in Wordpress, I can install a responsive plugin but they're not quite perfected. To really do it right, you have to do some serious CSS voodoo.

By the way, Verge has great content, like Mashable but looking below the surface more. Thanks for turning me on to that.

Oh, no problem. That team is doing some crazy good work.
