Here's the thing though, if CC webmasters have to do it, I don't think they will. It removes their profit as this effectively is special version of a private game. Really, it is just a private game with perhaps a modified UI for tablets.

Also, thanks ChapCrap, I am unfamiliar with iOS. I don't much like Apple.

Well, since I don't have access to your PM's here's a solution to that.

- Create a folder in your email for Conquer Club
- Create a filter that adds all messages about PM's, Game Notifications etc to send them to that folder
- Done

For Game Turn Notifications, I know the Windows Phone app does that and will continue to. You'd have to convince Ballslap to add it in the iOS version if it isn't part of it already. I'll work on the Game Chat, but that won't be ready for the upcoming release.

The app can already do the dishes as long as it is placed inside a towel and scrubbed vigorously (the dishes) for 15 minutes. This is a special, universal gesture recognized on all major smart phones. [I am not responsible for any damage caused to your phone by using this gesture. Towel and scrubbing not included.]

Conqueror for Windows Phone is getting an update soon and Conqueror on 8 is also in the finishing stages. I would like to take a moment to pole you, the community, quickly on a few things. I include them here instead of in the Conqueror for WP or Conqueror for Windows 8 post because I think this is something that applies to all Conquer Club apps.

First. Ad removal by in-app purchase. I am wondering if this would interest anyone and if so, how much would you be willing to pay to remove all ads from the app.

Second. Notifications, I am looking for some more specific details on what people want with these. What do you want notifications of and how often would you like to receive them. (Instantly is not an option!) Assume that notifications are displayed only when the app is not running in the foreground and run periodically at a set interval. What should that interval be? 30 minutes? an hour? every day? Would you want a feature added to control the number of times a notification could display daily or only display notifications for specific games? I'd love to make them as helpful as possible, but can be difficult without knowing what you guys want to do with these applications.

Finally. In app information. What do you want the app to display? Something so compressive that it displays the rank and win percentage of every player you are playing against? Or to simply show the names of all your opponents? Either are possible, but both will look and feel different.

Most importantly, these features all take time. Lots more time than the money I make from developing the app itself. I would like to avoid the whole poking in the dark for features people really appreciate to a minimum. It could mean I discover something useful, but more likely I will spend two months developing a feature that no one wants to use. For that reason, input is important and lets me make the app better faster.

Personally, I think push notification is a must if you want to stand out from ballslap's perfectly good Conquer Club app. It's a pretty standard feature on iOS apps.

Good luck in your endeavor!

I'll look into that, I have no knowledge of the blackberry ecosystem, but it couldn't hurt to check it out. I'll post an update here when I find something out about that.

For those of you that are interested: Windows Phone has been updated with the new app including more robust notifications and an updated live tile.

I'd love better touch screen technology. It's kinda painful taking turns through Safari or Google on my iPod.

Assault Odds would also be nice.

I don't think the addons are compatible with existing mobile platforms, are they? Otherwise, it'd be super awesome to be able to access BOB snapshots and even take 'em.

You can't use the mods on mobile devices. This is due to many difference factors. First, mobile browsers are limited, significantly, by the platform they run on. They also are not as versatile and until the recent addition of chrome to iOS, neither Windows Phone nor iOS offered anything but the stock browser. Finally, mobile browsers are similar, but not the same as their counterparts for desktop. Thus, they may not support customizing even if their bigger brother does. The only platform I see this being possible on is Android at the moment, but even that seems like a stretch.

I'll look into snapshots, I must admit I am a bit confused as to what they are as I don't use them.

As a note: it is possible to do anything that the extensions for desktop browsers can do as all the same data is available. However, every tool requires being recreated itself and things like reorganizing web pages is not as easy as it might be with a desktop browser.

Even if you could just take the snapshot so that you later could come back and look at it would be nice. All that involves is reading the map and posting some coded text into the chat log. That part at least shouldn't be too hard.

OK, well, a lot of the addons work for Chrome, but the Chrome ios browser seems a lot more limited than its desktop cousin. Maybe the Android Chrome is more robust.

I'll experiment with how I might get BOB like features to work as well as snapshots. However, I doubt that I will have much luck, at least not in the near future as in the best case it will require a lot of modification and the worst case is that it won't work at all.

What about a feature that shows the number of expected points you will gain from winning a game and the number you will lose if you lose that game? I believe those are just calculated with a simple formula that shouldn't be too hard to replicate. Would that interest anyone?

Re: What do you want in a Conquer Club Mobile App

Postby macbone on Mon Dec 17, 2012 9:28 am

For me, I'd like better functionality. It's probably beyond the scope of a simple app, and would probably have to be an official app (for which I'd gladly fork over a few bucks).

Right now to take a turn, I have to tap a territory, and then tap again, and then two a territory I want to attack, and then tap it again to actually attack. Then, to advance some, all, or none, I have to use the pull down menus.

A fully tappable, intuitive CC app would be tremendous. I'd love to double tap a tert to attack, then tap either the new tert or the home tert to advance all or none, and maybe a horizontal swipe to choose to just advance a number of my choosing.

I don't care about knowinf the points at stake, really. What I'd like is all the things BOB does so well, like show what terts attack/ bombard/border other terts, the ability to take snapshots of the board and save it (though I guess I could always do that manually, but eh), and a handy summary at the bottom that shows the bonuses in a text format. All of those things are things BOB does to make the game easier.

An Assault Odds calculator would be nice, too. I'm sure that could be done as a separate app, but it would be nice to have it layer over the CC map for ease of calculations.

And again, I'd be willing to pay for this bad boy, although small, unobtrusive ads would be ok, as long as you could pay for a non-ad version.
