What do you want in a Conquer Club Mobile App

Postby runewake2 on Wed Nov 21, 2012 10:47 pm

So, I've been paying attention to the use of my own app and the reviews of ballslaps iOS app.

Basically I am wondering what you want in a mobile application.

I'm looking for any suggestions, some examples:
- Odds Calculator
- In App Gameplay
- Chat Logs
- Notification of waiting games etc

these are obviously just a few suggestions, what I want to know, is what would make the Conquer Club apps we have even better. What do you want, what do you need and what do you dislike?

Obviously these are just suggestions and some of them will likely not be possible with the current reaches of the Conqueror Club API, however, suggestions would be great!

I would like Windowed usage. I want to be able to put the start button where I want on the screen, choose where the map is etc.

In App Gameplay is a big thing, but so is foruming.

So forum access is something you want.

And being able to get a more mobile friendly layout? The initial suggestion confused me a bit.

For forum access, would you like the ability to browse the forums or also the ability to post and interact (basically a link to the forum)?

I would like to join this discussion. But I think I'll have to try it out first. And I don't have a smart phone. :(

Is this also for tablets? (I don't have a tablet either) :P

The current features of the Windows Phone or iOS apps should not matter. I'm looking for what people want and find important so that I, as a developer, can better spend my time on features people will use.

The feature may already exist, but there may be another way it could work or how it might function that might be better.

I can't speak on the iOS version as I don't own any Apple products, however, the current Conqueror for Windows Phone is exclusive to windows smart phones. However, a Tablet version is in development.

What would you expect in a mobile application?

i have tablets but dont currently use them for this site. i do use a 10 inch laptop.

however, and i'm not sure if this is what you're asking for .........

i would like for the Game Menu, Interaction Menu & Personal Menu to be collapsable. that it shrinks to a really thin bar and expands if you click it.

the above idea would be good for both regular and mobile/tablet use as it would give more screen space.

Sure, I'm interested in any none website based interaction with conquer club. Preferably mobile or tablet based, if it's website based stuff, I personally am not so interested in that and don't have the knowledge to make things happen in that scope. My focus is more on what a mobile application could and is used for than ways to modify the website.

However, those menu's I can add to my app fairly easily and something I had overlooked. This is kind of the direction I wanted this discussion to go actually, things that people want and then myself and other app developers can use this to figure out ways to add those features.

Ok. Well I've been thinking about this for a while... a CC associated app so you can play on a tablet just like if you were playing a real-time board game...

may I ask what you mean by Push Notifications kuma?

Push notifications require a server to push an update to an app, currently Conqueror for Windows phone does toast notifications which are little notifications at the top of the phone. Is this what you mean or do you need any other features that require specific pushes or were you referring to notifications themselves.

I'll push the Conquer Club Conqueror app forward for Windows 8 just after I get it out for Windows Phone. You'll be able to test it in your local Microsoft Stores soon. However, how would you make it play more like a board game x-raider?

A real-time board game. As in 2 people playing on one tablet using the CC engine. This might not be anything like what you want to work on, but... What do you think?

I might be able to make that possible, but the complexities are enormous. That would practically be a whole new app. Still, that's not a bad idea. All the dice rolls and gameplay could be handled by the app and only using the conquer club maps for country data etc. However, I haven't looked into this at all, so the possibility of something like that is a lot of empty statements.

I will look into it though.

Push Notifications is what notifications from the app are called on the iPhone. For instance, you may get a push notification when it's your turn, when you receive a PM, when there is new game chat, etc.

that sounds like you'd be breaching CC's legal right as they own the right to use the maps you'd be using on a totally separate game.

mhm.
Do you think that means the only person that could do it would be our dear webmaster/s?

"How should we go about this?"
that's the question that stopped me suggesting this to anyone for, like a month now.
