For pretty much as long as I've been on DDO, I've wanted an app for it. Who here wants/would use/would pay for a DDO app?

I don't see how they could make it more user friendly then just going to www.debate.org, the only thing I could see would be an app for the opinions section.

I've thought about this before but could never really figure out a way for it to work

Tomorrow, I'll draw some pictures of my ideas and post them to this thread.

I would like an easier way to access it from my phone. It's hard as Hell as it is.

I'm having trouble with uploading pictures of drawings, so I'll just describe a couple of my first ideas. The standard home page would be a scroll down of debates in the voting period. You would be able to pull out from the left side the sidebar, but it would have the addition of challenge period debates, opinions, and most importantly to distinguishing the app from the website, saved debates. With the saved debates option, you would be able to have those debates offline, so you could read them and devise a vote at any time, or you could save your own debates so you could work on your arguments offline. This would be a huge feature, and I'd love to see it implemented. You could then pull out from the right of the screen to get all of the forum categories, and you'd be able to pick from there.

Another idea would be to have separate apps for forums, debates, and opinions. I would love, in the very least, to have an app for the forums section. I can't imagine it would be too hard to make, and it would be really nice to have.

I don't find it particularly difficult to read. To look through mafia games, I simply type in www.debate.org/forums/games and then see if any new posts cropped up. As for actually posting, that is a different matter. I'd have to wait till I have access to a computer.

Hopefully, that would be a problem solved by a smooth app. I mean, I guess some of the goals of the app could also be accomplished with a mobile optimization, but I would prefer an app for the saved debates and saved forums option. I can't imagine how the website would just get that feature without some sort of offline ability.

Well an app would be a good way for juggle to keep activity from their active mobile users like myself. The theme and layout of this site works well with the laptop, but I can definitely see how an app made specifically for the android/apple smart phone users could be beneficial.

I would use an app. For me the main use would be to check the status of pending debates and read my opponent's latest posting in a debate. My habit is to read the argument and then think about it for a while before responding. So for my purposes an app would be mainly a reader that has buttons to do the web navigation.

While an app would certainly be nice, I feel like a much easier option (unless I just don't know what I'm talking about), would be just a mobile site for DDO. The readability and navigation on a phone is problematic, at best, on a phone. Just some way to improve it, whether that come in an app or a mobile site, would be amazing.

I've seen it suggested and have suggested it myself. It would be awesome. It would also be great if they could fix the double ' glitch that always happens on mobile.

just for the sake of clarification, would this app be meant to make DDO more compatible on phones or would this app be more like a DDO version of Angry Birds where I could theoretically launch bird versions of Airmax, Oryus, and myself at pig versions of Rationalmadman?

Either or. Depends on which one comes out first.
