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

The odds calculator is already a feature in the new Windows Phone app, though it still needs some work. I'll be making my code public sometime soon so that other people can see how I did it and it can be integrated into the other apps.

Many of the features that modify how the actual game is played would require an official app as I can't get that information, at least, not easily. I could theoretically scrape the currently loaded webpage to add some of that, but that is more hacking than anything else.

I am still looking into BOB and exploring the possibility of getting Grease Monkey to work in a mobile browser. If I can do this I could simply use BOB instead of reimplementing most of the features.

Out of curiosity, how much would you be willing to pay to make the app premium? That is, removing ads.

How much we would be willing to pay ought to be a poll. =)

I'd be willing to pay up to $5 for an ios app that has the features I suggested. For fewer features, say just an odds calculator, I could see myself paying $3, depending on how much the app offered and whether it was superior to Chrome/Safari for ios.

I don't have an Android phone, though, so I wouldn't be able to pick up the app if it were Windows-only, but I think enough people do have Android to make it worthwhile.

Just out of curiosity, how much in time-dollars would you estimate it will end up costing you to develop this app?

I have currently spent about 40 hours on the app so far, this includes the in app gaming part, game return, live tile, notifications and odds calculator. Adding some of the specific "official app" features that you want would probably take an additional 40 hours.

However, it is worth noting that some of that time is spent researching and teaching myself how to accomplish specific tasks.
