Instructables App

So, has anyone else seen the Instructables App? So many brilliant minds, apple/mac people... and it still works better to just use the browser?  Is it still being added to?  Is it being worked on more? I'm sorry to have to say, but this is the first time Instructables has really.. disappointed me.

The Instructables App

I believe there should be an instructables app for the ipod touch/ iphone. The app would be a simplified version of the website; users could veiw featured ibles, guides, contests, and their "You" page. Iphone users could make and publish and entire ible because of the camera. Users could also use the "search" bar(obviously). If any of you have any ideas or suggestions post them when you comment below. If enough people comment in favor of this idea we may be able to make it happen. To "sign" this "petition" just comment on this forum saying that you agree with this idea. At this time you can also add any ideas to improve this app.

Facebook app

I've been working on an app for facebook. I guess you could say it's in closed beta. Anywho, I need a few people for a test group. It is a TNG-Era game, that so far has the option of: The Borg, The UFP and the Romulan Star Empire. Also, I would gladly accept suggestions from those who don't use facebook. Send me a friend invite with a small message here: https://www.facebook.com/tyman210 .I need a friend invite if you want to be an admin.

iOS App

I don know about everybody else but i strongly beleive that Instructables should creat an app for the iOS platform. I have been on instructables for a couple years now and love it, but i cant always access it because of blocks on my schools wifi. I would even purchase an app if instructables made it. I know others would too.

Just a question if anyone can help. I've downloaded the 123dapp program to my pc for the 123dapp challenge but it keeps closing out/shutting down when I try to do anything with the prim. I've already searched this topic on Autodesk site and found an older thread about it but no fix. Is there a fix for this to stop this from happening? I've also unistalled and reinstalled the program and it's still behaving the same way.

3DS app question

I was wondering if anyone was aware of a way to create a very simple app for the 3DS that could be "delivered" via SD card. I believe it IS in fact a viable method of delivery (SD Card ) as I've seen something much like it before. The app I would like to have created would be a very basic drawing tool capable of exporting pictures to the SD card, more or less a version of paint with the unneeded functions removed. ( text, brushes, spray can , etc ) I would very much appreciate any information on the matter.

App Favorites Categories

Hi, I have a lot of 'ibles I've marked as favorites and it is difficult to find any one of them. I'd like to see Categories added to favorites that the user can name and put a favorite under to simplify finding one. It would make a bid difference to me and I'm surely not the only one who has marked many 'ibles for their favorite list. Thanks for reading and, hopefully considering this.

Full Screen Apps?

I set up an extra monitor on a shelf so that I can watch video from bed. Now i'm looking for some full screen applications i can keep it busy with, and was hoping some of you have ideas? Think along the lines of clocks (but not a clock, or digital picture frame). Volume bars that work via the computers mic or a flash RSS reader would be cool. Thanks!

Hulu App For Iphone!

Big news for the iPhone and iPod touch owners! Hulu is finally developing an app for the iPhone.From cNet news...Silicon Alley Insider is reporting that a dedicated Hulu application is indeed on its way to the iPhone and should be here in just a few months.SAI says the application will work over Wi-Fi and AT&T;'s 3G network, meaning that users will be able to view programming anywhere with a fast data connection.Rumors suggesting that an iPhone-friendly version of Hulu swirled around this time last year, however, they predated the launch of the App Store, and Hulu flat-out denied that one was being worked on.This time around, though, it's far more plausible, with the upcoming iPhone OS 3.0 software update, which lets developers bake streaming media into their applications. For Hulu, this means that the advertising could be stuck into the mobile stream and that users would be able to watch videos without leaving the application.One of the things that keep this rumor from holding water is that Hulu is in direct competition with Apple's iTunes business. Users of Hulu can watch ad-supported, full-length television shows and movies on their personal computers for free, instead of paying Apple to download a copy for offline viewing.If such an app were available on the iPhone, it would also offer portable TV and movie watching, something not yet offered in Apple's own mobile iTunes app, which is limited to video podcasts. In past instances of this, the company has simply denied applications such as Podcaster from making it through the app approval process, only to launch it as a first party feature later on.On the other hand, some of Hulu's competitors have already gotten a foot in the door, including Joost and CBS-owned TV.com, which has its own iPhone application that streams in content in chunks. In addition, Google's YouTube, whose application comes preinstalled on the iPhone, has recently reached an agreement with major studios, including Sony Pictures, Lions Gate Entertainment, and CBS (publisher of CNET News), to offer visitors full-length TV shows and feature films.If Hulu can't manage to pull off getting advertisements in the stream, using this system, it would be fairly simple to force users to sit through advertisements between clips.Link.

Instructables app behavior (Bug?)

I've been using the Ibles app on an Android (V 4.3) phone for a month or two. There's a lot to like about the app experience. For instance, the app makes it super easy to follow other users who are following your account... Super easy to click "follow" on many accounts in one session. I'm not really a social networking person, by choice, so I never paid much attention to following. Never cared about the number of followers--or hits, for that matter. I'm sure this is a breach of social networking etiquette. Guilty.  So-- it's a pain to "mass follow" other users in the browser interface (yeah, wouldn't be problem if I'd kept current with following)--go to you:subscribers, click on the account, select follow, move backwards to the you:subscribers page, repeat ad nauseam, with all the load times associated. On the app--load the followers page, then click, click, click on the icon next to each account. Pie easy. But there are some odd app behaviors: One: the app Followers section doesn't sync with the normal online interface. I.E., more followers in the browser online than on the app. Two: the last "follower" in the list doesn't display correctly. Shows as "not followed," when clicking on the user's account shows that I am indeed a follower of that account. Maybe there's a sync lag that would explain this...if so, it last several days.

App messing up and Adverts

It's been a while since I used this app. The number 1 reason is because the app messes up a lot and there have been no attempts to fix it. For some reason they decideded to make it so you have to sign in every time you use the app even if it was just 10 min ago. The problem is that you can't sign in from your app. It switches to the web browser to sign in and when you click facebook or sign in half the time it doesn't switch back to the app and the other half it just doesn't sign in. I started using the app again and here it is 2 years later and they still have not fixed the problem. Now I notice that it has advertisements in the middle of people's posts thanks for eating up my data. If these problems are not fixed I won't be using this again

ipad app for posting ibles? Answered

I guess this is more of a request than a question, sooooo.. Can someone please make an app for IPads that allows you to post a new 'ible and upload pictures???   I'm thinking something similar to the facebook app that allows you to "choose a picture from your library" or 'take a new picture"? writing an app is well beyond the scope of what I can do/have time to learn how. Please instructaballers, show some app ingenuity!

I want to build an app :) I understand that that there are sites with drag and drop features, which i will try out to get an idea of what i'd like, and use for smaller projects (any suggestions on which to choose?) But for a larger project i would like to build my own :) I have no programming skills or knowledge :( But i want to learn! SO! What i really want to know is were to start, what type of programming do i begin with? And were i progress to for app building? i.e java, joomla, CSS ( Don't laugh, I'm clueless at this point but I want to learn over the next year or so) Finally is there certain software that would be beneficial? i.e Adobe etc. Oh and is there any sites, books, tutorials, references to aid learning? Thanks for reading, I've tried googling but its a bit confusing finding were to start, but once i know the start and end point I'll get cracking :)

Instructables App "network error"

I tried to use the Instructables app to write an instructable. I loved it, writing an instructable as you go and clicking the camera button was great, made it really easy. BUT when I got done and went to publish it I clicked publish and it said it was uploading photos.  I laid my phone down, Moto G running kitkat 4.4.2 on the counter, when I came back it said network error unable to upload.  So I clicked done and tried to upload again, this time it immediately said network error couldn't upload.  So I completely closed the app tried again, same.  Restarted Phone, same. All the while having a strong WIFI signal.   So as last resort, I cleared app cache, well, this deleted my instructable........ Those should really be stored in a separate file that is not erased by a cache clear. So what was wrong? I had a great internet signal, there was NO network problems. Webpages and instructables in the app loaded fast.

Instructables Windows Phone App

I think that it would be really nice to see an instructables app in the windows phone store, with the windows phone platform growing and becoming more and more successful, I think that a lot of users would be really excited to see an app developed for the windows phone users! Hope this is a possibility because I would really love to see a windows phone app. If progress is currently underway and the app is being developed that would be great, but otherwise I hope that someone will start making one soon.
