Phone guitar

Phone apps are creeping more into the musical space. Famous musicians have been seen using cell phones with apps to play in their shows. Steffest has combined multiple phones into a guitar and can be seen here playing the results. Now I want to see him add an iPad for the guitar body and make the entire thing touchscreen. via Make

Jewelry Design App Ideas?

Our group at Autodesk is thinking about making an app to help people design custom jewelry, since the current options are slow, expensive, and hard to use.  If you've made your own jewelry or worked with a pro to have a custom piece made, our summer intern Kristen would love to pick your brain for 15-30 minutes to learn what features would be most useful to you in a jewelry app. If that sounds like fun, just reply here and Kristen will contact you to set up a phone or Skype chat.  Thanks!

iPods as scientific tools (app-creation challenge)

I can't help noticing that there are a lot of kids with iPods at my new school. I have a half-warmed idea that this is an under-exploited resource - these things are packed with sensors that most schools cannot afford to buy for themselves. Does anybody know of any apps that can be used to easily access this data in a form useful for students?  For instance: the iPod replaces the bob in a pendulum and records the time it takes to swing, and the forces acting at each moment of the swing, then displays the data in a graph on the iPod, or uses the wifi link to email the document in a form that can be used by an Excel spreadsheet. And not just acceleration and time, but sound and light (isn't there an ambient brightness detector in there somewhere?). Suggestions? Any recommendations? Edit Kitewife bought me an iPod Touch for Christmas!  I have so far installed the following apps that use the on-board sensors; SPARKvue (accelerometer display), Signal Gen (an audible signal generator), SoundLevel (a free decibel meter / sound oscilloscope) FreqCounter (displays a continuous full-screen oscilloscope display Decibel 10 (analogue & digital sound level meter, which will email data for you) SpiritLevel & iTools (for measuring angles and levels by moving the iPod) Protractor (lays a protractor over the view through the camera, allowing you to measure "real" angles you can't reach (say, of a roof-line, or between branches of a tree). What I cannot find (yet) is a decent app that gives a class-room-useful read-out of light levels - they don't tell you the light-level, they tell you what f-stop to use on your camera. The next job is to find ways to use them in lessons, or as homework tasks. Question: Is anybody reading this able to actually create their own iPod Touch apps?  The apps I've downloaded so far are fine, as far as they go, but they really need a better way of getting the data out in a form that can be manipulated (eg by spreadsheets).

Anybody feel like making an Instructables app?

So you guys may know that Instructables no longer supports their apps for either phone platform. This is a pain as many of us like using our phones for the things they look at on the site. Is anyone interested in putting together an Instructables app?

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.

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

Iphone App - Comments

I have downloaded the iphone app, and its good, but you cant see any of the comments attached to an instructable. Comments can be really important for additional information or improvements... I think you need to be able to see them. The iphone web interface handles them well.

iPad app exiting when pressing "Explore All"

I am using an IPad air with latest iOS updates and version 2.64.5 of the Instructables app For the past 6 months or so, whenever I go into the app and press "Explore All" the app simply exits back to my IPads homescreeen. All other app functionality appears ok. I have tried: - shutting and restarting the app - a hard reset - deleting and redownloading the app - as a last ditch effor, doing a factory reset and restoring from backup None of the above has worked and it's really destroyed my ability to use Instructables on the IPad and the desktop version is a little clunky to explore on a tablet. I have submitted feedback a couple of times through the app but that hasn't seemed to have done anything. I really hope asking here might help me resolve this! Thanks Darren

IOS App?? explore Crash

Hate to beat a dead horse but, can we at least fix the IOS app to make it usable? If you don't know what I'm talking about download app and tap on explore. You only have to try it two or three times before you delete app. Seems to me many potential contributors to the DIY community will move on after discovering that such a great database is impossible to explore...wait where did it go? There it is...expl..whoops..screw it.

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.

iPad App bug. The most irritating one. Please solve. Arrgh

I'm using the app on the iPad. Mine is an iPad Air 2, and the OS is 8.4 version. Whenever you try to click on the 'explore' dropdown on the top the app exits (don't know If it crashes. It just exits and I come to the home screen). It is the most irritating thing ever. I tried this when I'm Logged in, the app exits and logs me out as well. When I'm logged out, the app exits. This happens as soon as you touch the explore dropdown on the top bar. Please please fix it. It screws up the entire experience.  i can't really give you any screen shots since there is non error message.

Android Mobile App Login trouble

Hello! I have troubles to login in Android app. I correctly logged in in my account through the web browser on my PC. But I can't do that on the mobile app on my cell phone. I checked it several times and I'm sure, I correctly entered email and password in the login form. It's always returns "We can't find that account, or your password didn't match". After several unsuccessful attempts I tried to recover my password through the mobile app. I entered email in the dialog, then app returned me the result: "We don't have that email on file, or an error occurred". The i tried to register new account with my email that I've entered on the previous attempts. The application returned: "Email address is already in use" 1. Android 4.3 on LG Nexus 4 2.

Instructables APP for Android (on Nexus 7) - All I get is the intro pictures.?

This topic was originally posted in "answers: technology" https://www.instructables.com/answers/Instructables-APP-for-Android-on-Nexus-7-All-I-get/ I was asked to post it to this forum as well. Synopsis of problem: I had just installed the Instructables App on a Nexus 7.  But, all I saw was the four intro pictures "Explore, Share, Make".  Could not get past these and navigate to the site. I have the 2nd generation nexus 7 running android v4.4.2. Tried tapping the screen, resizing, sliding, and nothing. It would just move between the above mentioned images. Discovered if i logged into the instructables site via chrome, and selected the app to display everything afterwards, it worked.  Basically, it would not let me do anything if I initiated the app first. Once I got past my initial login via chrome I could return to app to login, navigate, etc. and the app appears to work fine.

'Featured' e-mail links don't work in iPhone App

Am I doing something incorrectly? I use the iPhone e-mail app to review the weekly/daily 'FEATURED' instructable e-mails.  Often I follow the link from the e-mail to review the build steps.  I am frequently prompted to use the iPhone app. I have it installed, however it is not compatible with e-mail.  If when prompted to start the app, the app comes up with what ever page it would normally, not the specific instructable that I am following from the 'FEATURED' e-mail.  I like the app and I like the 'FEATURED' e-mails, however always prompted to use app is frustrating and not being able to follow featured items with out have my logon already in place as with the app is frustrating.  I have pro to be able to read all in one-step, however when following from the 'FEATURE' e-mail I always have to select view in one or always have to log in.  When killing time 1-2 minutes reading e-mails, not worth effort to log in.

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.

Why isn't there an iPhone Instructables App??

Or atleast a mobile version for Safari? Constantly I find myself needing to use an instructable, but not wanting to wait a long time for the normal instructables to load. Similar sites like HowCast have an app, and a safari version. So instructables is a little behind with the times. Just an idea. I wish someone would consider it.
