Style for IPad Needed!

Post by samuelotto » Mon Jul 05, 2010 12:57 am

Hey all,

Anyone know of a style that is designed to view phpbb3 via the IPad?

I have a client using phpbb3 for some mobile education applications, and I haven't been able to find a really good style for IPad.

Hi,

Maybe this could help you http://www.tapatalk.com/ I do not know if you are familiar with the program but it makes your phpBB forum "Apple friendly"

Yes, but my requirements are to keep something branded only to the specific organization.

So... Unless I want to somehow program an Iphone app that access phpbb3 databases... I could really make this work fast with a good skin/style.

The default prosilver and the addon prosilver-SE work fine. In fact many styles do. The iPad just uses safari.

Sure it works,

But its not stylized for IPad, and aesthetically it doesn't cut it.

Here is a screen shot of a skin I found as an example of a style made specifically for Iphone.

I need something like this developed for ipad.

It looks exactly as it does on your own browser when you use an ipad.

Yes, I understand that, but you are clearly not hearing me.

There is a CSS protocol for making webpages specifically designed for iPhones and iPads.

Your answer "its fine the way it is" seems very short sighted to me.

Thanks anyways, I'll figure it out myself.

Your question was

The answer is that the iPad uses safari which renders pages exactly the same way as you see them on a regular laptop or desktop using firefox, IE, opera or safari.

Maybe you need to rephrase your question.

You think he means the phone and not the pad?

I think all the options have been suggested. If you want an app, go with Tapatalk. If you want a simplified theme, go with Artodia but I find that too simplied for the ipad. It's better for the phones. iPad works better with the full theme. My site serves the mobile version of Artodia with an option at the bottom to switch to the full theme. If none of that works, pay someone to write a custom app. Themes are not apps. Themes cannot do push notifications and other iOS functions. Themes are nothing more than window dressing.
