We are pleased to announce that the IP.Board iPhone App has now been updated.

The new version of the IP.Board iPhone App is now available in the Apple App Store for download. Please note that new features like Push Notifications require an active license and IP.Board 3.1.1 to operate. Here is what's new in this version:

Push Notifications

Push notifications have been integrated into the existing notification system, so any event that can generate a notification can also generate a push notification. You can have notifications sent to your phone for subscribed forums and topics, new personal conversations, reported posts, and much more.

You will find a new settings group in your ACP "iPhone App", from here you can enable or disable support for push notifications. You can also restrict which group has access to push notifications, making it possible to use the subscription service to sell this feature to your users.


Once you have enabled notifications for your forum, your users will see a new 'mobile' column in their notification settings:

These same settings can also be updated directly from the iPhone App:

The Quick List feature that we showed in the previous blog post has been expanded to show your unread notifications. When you receive a notification on your phone, the Quick List for the forum that sent it will be automatically opened so that you can see the notifications:

Tapping the notification will take you directly to that area of the forum.

This feature will be available to everyone with a active support license, hosting account, or service addon package. If you would like to find out if your license qualifies, please visit the license key section of your ACP and refresh the license data, look for this message:


iPad Support (beta)

This version also includes preliminary support for the iPad, the application will now properly resize to use the entire screen. We'll be further enhancing this functionality in the future by providing a more customized interface and using the regular skin instead of the mobile skin.


(Yes, there is an Android app coming in the future still!)

Please enjoy this new update and we look forward to your feedback and suggestions.

Also please note that this is not an application which is supported via our Support ticket System. For all assistance with it, please post in the Peer to Peer support forum created for it, here: http://community.inv...ne-app-support/
