Time for the HighExistence App?

Heed them, HEthen (@heedthem) 9 years, 7 months ago

So, I think it’s definitely time we begin to think of making this real
Like how many times have you guys signed on your phones wishing you had an app?

I think it’s definitely something to consider. Maybe make it cost $1.99 for support for Valhalla/HE, etc.

What do you mods think? (or, idk, maybe @Jordan)

@heedthem, Great Idea. I would pay 1.99 for an app if it went to support Valhalla and HE.

@ijesuschrist, Why sell t-shirts when you can sell t-shirts AND have an app? :)

I don’t use smart phones or tablets, so I probably won’t use the app. However, if the app is made to be free (as in freedom) and open source, then I’ll support it. I won’t support any proprietary app, even if it is available gratis.

@ijesuschrist, You could support an open source app by helping developing it. Or by donating to it.

@ijesuschrist, Like Bryan said, you support the app by donating to it. Also, while the app may be gratis, it won’t be free unless it meets certain conditions. Read up: https://www.gnu.org/philosophy/free-sw.html

@heedthem, This would be a wonderful idea. I would totally use the app.

By having a HE subscription of let’s say $1 per year. Which as it stands would generate a revenue of $41,000.

The app will be great idea but it should be for free. Why, because poeple love free apps. The website will get milions hits and win more fans, little bit by little will get to everybody. And when it get famous then they should think about a smart service to provide for exmaple upgrade your app .99 cent and get special serie lol

You know what I think an app would be a great idea, but to be honest I’m not sure if I’d want one. I don’t want HE to become a site I check multiple times throughout the day out of habit like a Facebook or something… but I guess that’s just a personal thing. But still, there’s just something about the idea of the “HighExistence App” that throws me off; it almost cheapens the site and what it stands for. Again just one opinion… On second thought, it could be beneficial for the site’s growth, Vahalla, etc…

My question is…why have an app? I’m on my phone right now and can navigate the site just fine. Everything is fully functional and works just fine. What’s the point of having an app? That’s an honest question and not a knock on those who support having one.

I’d not pay 1.99 for anything basic. I can get a top game for 59p (UK). so if I was even thinking of paying $1.99 it would need something good.

I know its to support this website which is great… But it would still need to be good and well made for me to even pay anything for it.

My browser works great on my phone… So what would it do that my browser does not do?!

BUT. I would subscribe to something like this. Not much, but I would. If it gave me some benefits and some cool features.

How about instead of a native app building a web app?

@chodebalm, Which browser and phone are you using? I have big problems on my Iphone.

With Chrome: sometimes the pages are not adjusted to the width of my screen, and I cannot scroll, therefore I am missing half of the post (the right half)

Sometimes I am logged in, but when browsing other topics I am logged out. Same problem with Safari.

Would definitely browse more on my phone if these problems would not exist (However I do not know if this is something positive).

@filipek, I have an iPhone and I use Chrome as the browser. You are right though, I have the same problem once in a while with the size of the screen and the display of the text. Usually I’m able to correct the problem by refreshing the page, but not always. That’s the only problem I have noticed. Having said that, though, I can see why having an app would be beneficial.

@heedthem, Would love an app! Often find filling moments of boredom with “angry birds” or similar… it would be great to replace the mind numbing processes with a two minute top up of awesome!

PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE do not produce only an IOS app! This would be cruel and I am sure there cannot be a great majority of HE users throwing there money at Apple!
