Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

    An Iphone App for ARRSE has been asked for on a number of occasions but it is now something we are seriously looking at. It would effectively be a rebranded version of the excellent one produced by Tapatalk that I know a few people are already using.

    (Oh and I do know that isn't an IPhone ....)

    Our big question concerns how we'd deploy this as it would cost us approx £2000 once we'd paid for both versions (IPhone/Android), had some minor customisation done and added it to the various App stores (paid their fees....). I've therefore added a poll to try and determine how much you'd be willing to pay/would consider appropriate for this 'must have' item!

    Imagine the joys of having a Mr MH logo on your phone home screen ......
     
  2. £2K!!! I had no idea of the cost, saying that I would happily pay for a snazzy functional Iphone app for Arrse. Can I have a nuke button for when Spaz and co post in the JU forum (I'll pay extra!).

    I know ...... Of course if you could produce a cheaper one then I think there would be lots of forum owners who'd be keen to buy it off you! The other fun bit is that the Apple Store takes 30% of any income.

    We'll also be looking at a 'lite' theme which looks much better on a mobile phone and is accessed through the normal browser. Whilst this will be ok I don't think it will be a patch on an App.

  5. Could it not be funded by the app being a paid one? I like the tapatalk one but a proper arrse app would get my vote and my cash.

    Erm I'm not really sure what a 'proper' ARRSE App would do that a rebranded Tapatalk one doesn't? Pse let me know what additional functionality you would expect?
     
  7. I use the tapatalk app, works great. I only use it for Arrse.
     
  8. Got anything that would work on a Blackberry?
     
  9. A large hammer would work.
     
  10. That's enough from you sprog!
     
  11. I bought the tapatalk app for my Nexus, works fine ^^
     
  12. Anything for Blackberry users? I dont want to be a fruit/ robot sheep.
     
  13. Bit too late for that now.
