    Hi All

    Is it possible to develop an app for AH?

    Jerome have you though about it? or is it just to difficult/expensive?

    I have no clue how these things work was just wondering.

    Would an app also not be less likely to be hacked by those nutball antis?

    I am sure a lot of AH members would love to use a phone or tablet app.

    Just asking.

    Cheers.

    Really interesting question. I have never thought about that one before. But wouldn't it take away a lot of the excitement of the hunt?
    Why take technology to the bush?

    As I have mentioned before no plans for such an add-on right now as site wide settings, updates and security is also a big concern... By using Also the platform that AH is on right now is already quite friendly and mobile optimized.

    Fair enough, just thought I would ask.

    True that it is quite mobile friendly!

    Hi

    Wasn't thinking about taking it to the bush just rather using it as normal App in day to day life, but I suppose all the great info on here would be a help to people in the field.

    As for taking tech into the bush. I hate taking my phone with me when I go hunting!! But in the world we live in it make doing business while out the office a lot easier. One of those necessary evils I suppose.

    I suppose as a normal app in day to day life it will be great. Can't see it working in the bush anyway because most of the time there isn't signal. You're right it is indeed a necessary evil!

    So what does an AH App look like to you guys?

    In your eyes what would it have included?
    What functionality?

    (all for interests sake)
