Mobile user volunteers?

Postby super_dipsy » 25 Nov 2017, 21:25

Been working on an Orders interface that is hopefully easier for mobile users and it's not far off ready. The idea is basically that instead of having to do point and click, it used pulldown menus which should be easier to manage on mobile devices.

As someone who almost exclusively uses browsers and laptops rather than mobiles for web-based games, I'm not the best person to judge its usability etc

I'm looking for perhaps a couple of people who might be prepared to give it a try and feed back comments etc.. Might be good to make sure I have an iPhone and an Android user for example. Particularly, I am keen to get people who are on site a lot because when I want to ask for feedback on a change I get impatient if it takes days!

Just to give people a feel, this is what it currently looks like (although this is from my laptop)

Each menu when you click on it gives you the selections you can make. Unlike the Orders Solver approach, the number of boxes changes depending on what you select, so for example it starts out with the territories menu and the order menu. If you choose Move then the target location menu appears, or if (as in this case) you want to do a support or convoy then the supported territory and target menus appear. It is a separate window.

Hey Dipsy

I mainly use my phone (I'm Android). I'm happy to trial it and feedback. I'm about as un-techy as it gets, so if I can use it - anyone can.

Android also here, and highly technical, but I'd like to participate

I use an iPad Mini for everything, so not quite iPhone size, but happy to participate if wanted.

That's what I LOVE about our site! :D :D :D

People are always willing to help and support the site or the players. You guys are such a great bunch!

I'll probably drop a few PMs over the next few days to ask for feedback / input. Thanks all!

I would be up for it in a non-rated game where the focus was more on trying to break the app than it was on trying to win the game. I have a software development background as well as some experience with QA testing.

Dipsy I'd love to participate in this feature as well. I use mobile (iOS) for the majority of my current games.

I tend to use a PC/laptop, if only because it's easier to message on those. Happy to be an iPhone guinea pig though.
