Bringing Irishfowl into 2017

Hey I think we should all applaude flockmaster for running such a successful page to help all off us enthusiastic poultry farmers,

Just throwing it out there to see if many people would think it would be a good idea to get an Irishfowl app for our phones to make it easier for us to access it on the move.

Just an idea or if anyone else has an oppionion on this

Your some clown DonkeyDick you put no one in your place you couldnt even read my user name right.

But if you are looking for serious input on this topic here goes .....How much do you reckon it would cost to develop an app for irishfowl?....How does Flockmaster recoup that cost.???Will people really be willing to pay for an app on their phone for a site that is currently free to use???? Even if every member agreed to pay a fee or the App is there enough members hereto cover the cost ???

the simple answer is nobody would pay for what is available free.

Lucie15, no as you can see my user name is DonkeyDick1992,I don't know a dick donkey. But I'm open to new friendships. And you took the time to read my post, do you not have an opinion or do you just pick on the flaws of my vocabulary? Everyone keeps poultry not everyone shows.

Virginia's Fowl I'm beginning to think you are a PI but unfortunately I don't keep donkeys anymore

Thank you Irishpoultry.com for your honest feedback, but that's why I put this post up to see if many people would be interested or have any other good ideas,

I don't think the app would be a good idea,
The site here is good enough as it is.

Thanks for the feedback FionnG, just a thought for users on the go.

"Users on the go" Surely if people dont have the time to check the site once every few days from a fixed point location ie Laptop or PC they probably haven't the time needed to look after their stock properly so then they shouldn't be keeping poultry thus they wont need this site

You see Irishpoultry.com, they way the tech world is going these days is that people are opting to buy a smart phone/tablet instead of a laptop/pc as the phones now a days are better in many ways than a once great laptop. I under that alot of people still use a laptop including my self but that number is slowly moving towards a smart phone, myself included. But as I said this is just an idea, don't worry the site will still be available to use if the app idea is approved which I highly doubt

In my opinion, this is the fastest site around to load. When my computer is either slow or offline, this is the site I use to check which it is, because it always loads even with the slowest connection.
And it is fast to load on the mobile as well. I do need to enlarge the print to read the topics, but that's not unusual.
Personally, I don't see the need for a mobile app. And beyond the expense, there just wouldn't be the user numbers to justify one either.
