    Works quite well with V4.4.9.1 : google AdSense has approved the incriminated login page as respecting their rules. Thankyou very much to the author of this very useful plug-in !
  1. From our side it has been two years now we've definitely abandoned the clubs function, after our community users have voted against its usage.
  2. I'm not saying we should do the same. I'm just pointing at the fact that notifications are the key to keep attention in the "attention market" world...
  3. It seems my idea was finally not so bad... I'm glad to read about this app : we'll finally get notifications to fight back social networks attention keeping procedures... Good news ! 👍 Do you know that facebook generates false notifications when you've no real notifications from a while, just to make you get back and see whats going on ?
  4. ok, so I need to be more patient than that... sorry...
    Having some serious trouble here since last invision V4.4.2 and rules update V1.4.6 : Private Messages are randomly spread to arround 100 users from the community without their consent. It happened at least two times. Invision support says it is rules problem, rules says it is usage or invision problem ... Nothing has changend in the rules between the updates, in 2 years nothing like that did happen. There is a bug somewhere, it needs to be solved.
  5. ok ! 😅 Any ideas or estimations of when it will be available ?
  6. Good to hear that ! :) OK, I've no means to test it. I'll try to ask our users about it.
  7. I don't think it may be easy to provide "app files" to any administrator. Unless invision provide the App code, but it means the administrator shall register into the appstore as a seller to provide a free app : it is not easy to perform, it cots 100$/year and it supposes the administrator knows how to code swift/objectivec/java/C++. The way I see it is a global app for all invision communities (one app for all communities). Users downolad one single app, whathever the communities they want to register in. Then register in the app for any invision community they want to follow. In other words some kind of "invision communities notificator/hub", not a "my community notificator". OK, it'll not allow administrators to change the icon of the app neither the look of the app, but it is not the purpose, at least in first time to see if it is useful or not. I think it can even be developed as an invision plug-in. Unfortunately I don't have yet the knowledge to make it.
  8. why not ? If it may be true, to add some adjustments or a basic* "something" may be enough to make Apple happy... *basic : easy, then not costing too much to implement @dayh An IPS app in that way should be free (or included with licence) because it is a final user app, and if the final user needs to pay for it : nobody will even try to get it. Until now, everybody is focused on readers apps that could replace the standard IPS website, as said before there are already a lot of RSS readers that could do the job for most of the "reading" needs, but even them are not good enough for the notification needs ; the ones that could keep better attention on a community... As said before, I may be wrong, but from my point of view it seems a good idea at least to experiment, always in the "fighting social networks" direction... The experimentation or testing of this idea does not have a very high cost of development : it could be tested with no much risks and a real potential of success...
  9. Thankyou for the explanations ! If I understand well, it is the way some notifications are sent to the desktop (for example) while my browser is open on my community. It is useful but not working in all OS, neither when the browser is closed... So... until this "technology" is not yet fully functional in all OS (mobile or not), my idea still remains a - good - way to get push notifications wathever the OS or device... The app may dissapear in the future if things evolve in the right way, but by the time it could "do the job, awaiting for better"...
  10. Thankyou for your reply, sorry about my leak on PWA, but what is it ?
  11. It seems I've not convinced anyone. I already use RSS readers to keep notified of new posts in the community but it does not notify about new PMs neither any new post in areas where you need to authentify to see the content. It is still more useful than just e-mail notifications but not completely adapted to the need, and RSS readers are clearly seen as "some geek stuff" people don't want to understand... But just to finish about it. Once the first application in use, if it works (meaning lot of people use it) there are a lot of new features that could be added to the app making it more attractive & useful for the users and still without converting it into a "community reader" that will not have (from my point of view) any added value regarding the standard IPS communities or RSS readers.
