Also, hitting OpenStudy with a link directly to a question shouldn't make your computer explode heh.

So, how am I supposed to access this mobile site?
inkyvoyd
  • inkyvoyd
(from a computer, manually)
farmdawgnation
  • farmdawgnation
Shrink the width of your browser to less than... 600px I believe is the cutoff.
farmdawgnation
  • farmdawgnation
Fair warning, weirdness may follow if you shrink and unshrink your window. We did our best to allow it, but there are probably still a few bugs. ;)
KingGeorge
  • KingGeorge
Shrinking and unshrinking only causes weirdness in the chat so far as I can tell.
KingGeorge
  • KingGeorge
And that was fixed easily by opening the chat.
inkyvoyd
  • inkyvoyd
So, I'm going to have to wait till the next update to have a link at the bottom for a mobile side? xD
inkyvoyd
  • inkyvoyd
By the way, do you think this mobile site will work well with my old PSP? Or shall I try to find out? :D
farmdawgnation
  • farmdawgnation
No, we're not implementing a "link" to the mobile side. There isn't really a different side. The design of the site is simply responsive to the size of the screen (or window).

Fine, Fine, I get it. Just spam ctrl and +

Also, FWIW, for those of you who have been experiencing the tab crash issues (the Aww snap page) in Chrome, it looks like the bug was assigned to an engineer at Google this morning. Hopefully I'll have some more news soon.

Yay!

Just a question, does firefox preform best on this site?
farmdawgnation
  • farmdawgnation
Chrome and the latest Firefox are probably a tie.

At first I thought it was an iOS App - long awaited for. Then I realized it's a mobile site. A step in the right direction... I'm assuming the mobile site won't take into effect on the iPad due to a larger screen?
farmdawgnation
  • farmdawgnation
You are correct @Study23. The iPad will display the full version of the site. We actually released a fixed version of the site for iPad when we released SmartScore. So you can interact with the full site. There is still some weirdness and zooming doesn't work - but because of some bugs in Mobile Safari that's probably as good as it gets for the time being. :\

iOS app costs an exorbitant amount of money if I'm not mistaken.
farmdawgnation
  • farmdawgnation
Nah, it just costs time to develop.
inkyvoyd
  • inkyvoyd
Which thingy cost money for iOS then?
farmdawgnation
  • farmdawgnation
The iOS developer program costs money, but it's just $100 per year. Not that much.
inkyvoyd
  • inkyvoyd
Just a question, what compiler are you using for this? Or am I a complete noob and using the term completely incorrectly?
farmdawgnation
  • farmdawgnation
For the site?
inkyvoyd
  • inkyvoyd
For... the stuff on this site I guess?
farmdawgnation
  • farmdawgnation
The backend code is written in scala, so scalac is the compiler. The frontend presentation stuff (HTML, JavaScript) isn't compiled so there are no compilers for that.
inkyvoyd
  • inkyvoyd
I see. I've never heard of it 0.o

How about something like, http://m.openstudy.com ? it looks cool. ;)
farmdawgnation
  • farmdawgnation
Lol. It does, but it's also double the code to maintain. And performance test. :| Can you tell I've been working on IE bugs today? :P haha
saifoo.khan
  • saifoo.khan
@farmdawgnation , Mobile site isn't workin!!!
farmdawgnation
  • farmdawgnation
I'm going to need a more detailed description of what's going on than "isn't workin" :P
shadowfiend
  • shadowfiend
There is currently no native app under development per se, except for some wrappers that will present the site within a browser. You should be able to use the site on iPad, though we've gotten some reports that there are issues that came from our mobile tweaks in this release. We're looking into those. As for a stylus, the iPad does not support stylus input directly, and neither will we. The drawing tool should still be visible and the stylus should behave somewhat decently on there, in theory (I haven't tested it). But again, the iPad is supposedly having a couple of issues since this release.
saifoo.khan
  • saifoo.khan
I tried to open the site from my phone, but the desktop site opened.
shadowfiend
  • shadowfiend
Note that the landing page does not change. Only openstudy.com/study is different.
saifoo.khan
  • saifoo.khan
I just tried the site. it's very very slow and the links open after 10-15 secs.
anonymous
  • anonymous
lol It takes too long for me but my phone also sucks, so I'm not gonna blame OS.
saifoo.khan
  • saifoo.khan
lol, i think it's OS. my phone open most of the sites. idk im not sure but i think it's coz it's a java site?
farmdawgnation
  • farmdawgnation
We're not java. We're scala. Although we do run inside the JVM, there is a difference. :P That said, the problem is likely with our JavaScript we're running client side. @shadowfiend has said already that we're going to be focusing on performance again ASAP and do our best to exterminate these issues.
saifoo.khan
  • saifoo.khan
Okays. Coz we can barely click on links. :(
farmdawgnation
  • farmdawgnation
Yeah, it's hitting us too. This is the side effect of having such a small team. To focus on performance, we have to sacrifice forward movement. It's a constant juggling game.
lgbasallote
  • lgbasallote
uhmm is it just me or does it not have a View All Notifications link? o.O
shadowfiend
  • shadowfiend
That's correct. We've removed several features and links so as to simplify the interface for the time being.
lgbasallote
  • lgbasallote
i see....looks nice though :D so uhmm hypothetically..let's say i login via iPhone to openstudy...will the people who fanned me see me online? because if they do and call me out t chat they might think im snobbing when i dont respond when i dont even know they called me?
shadowfiend
  • shadowfiend
Yeah, at the moment that is indeed what will happen. Sorry!
lgbasallote
  • lgbasallote
oh hmm no wonder i got spammed with messages after i logged in on an iPhone haha lol..hope you find a remedy for that someday ^_^
