OK, it's not exactly a "Fastlane App", but the forum is now optimized fairly well for mobile viewing via smartphone browser.

I've surfed the forum on my iPhone more in the last week than I have in the last ten years.

And the interface will only get better in the coming weeks as tweaks are still being made.

To add FASTLANE to your phone, here's how.

1) Pull up The Fastlane Forum on your phone via browser. On an iPhone, that would be your Safari browser.
2) Click the SHARE / FORWARD icon.

#3) Swipe the lower icons (black and white) until you find the "ADD TO HOME SCREEN" icon. Click there.

That's it!

Rightly so!
Clever trick!
Wonder if this can be done for other websites or blogs I frequent regularly....

Thanks, MJ! This makes things more convenient. I think you turned your website into more of a progress-web-app feeling. Especially utilizing the push notifications. Great update.

Yes and no.

The physical $ number is gone, but the data that created that number still exists. In other words, the system still knows who the high-rep folks are. I still have not dug into how this translates out into the new system as rep ratings. It's on my list of things to look into...

How can I turn on push notifications for this quasi-app on my iPhone?

As far as I know web-based push notifications are not supported by iPhone ioS.

This is awesome, especially since I just quit my job. Now I can just play on TFF all day long., starting on Thursday. Just kidding (about playing, not about quitting). I'm going to put some of the great breadth of knowledge on this forum to use, and I am super-excited.

Very handy trick. It's great for making shortcuts to any site that you wish had an app, but doesn't. :)

This is definitely off-topic, but I love SkyView! It's so fun to look at constellations through your phone!

Could you also please change the highlighting of text back from yellow to blue. It's very difficult to see at the moment.

Thanks.

That is a great idea! I could never really get used to Tapatalk, so buggy.

FYI, you can do exactly the same on your computer and add TFF as an app icon on your desktop, Dock, etc. with apps like Unite: Unite for macOS
Though it is more relevant on mobile for sure.

I just wanted to say that the new outlook and functionality are AMAZING.

And mega lit and on fleek and other hip terminology.

Thank you for making it more accessible on the mobile phones!!

The way @reedracer mentions also works on Android's built-in Chrome browser (not only the standalone browser).

This way, you can simply use Google's Search Bar widget without having to open Chrome's app to add the shortcut on your homescreen.

Just an FYI :smile2:
