Gaia on the Go for Iphone: I am not a fan. I can't count the times this app has inexplicably sent me back to the main menu in the middle of typing a forum post. It lacks even basic forward/back navigation, no post previews, only has access to Cash shops (probably since gold shops don't make them much money) Normally I would complain about the lack of games, but iOS doesn't have support for Flash environments, which is Apples shortsightedness, not Gaia's. In all it's a mediocre attempt at expanding the Gaia experience to iOS devices.
It's really hard to customize your posts & replies. Every time I almost finish adding in all the formatting I accidentally click close because it's all so close together. It would be nice to have a cache that would save it as a draft so if you accidentally closed the app or reply you could see your draft and publish it.
I just got it an hour ago... And it is amazing!! I love it! Although I'm sure people wouldn't mind if the app had a a game plugged in to it that way we can score some gold on the go. But I do like the idea of members getting gold just by using the app now and then. Easy money.cool
This app is very useful, although I do sometimes end up using my iPod browser for accessing Gaia. There are many things I was disappointed in, but I'm still satisfied. One of my suggestions is being able to try on things in the marketplace. Also it is sort of a taller order? But being able to access the shops. I do know market place usually has shop items listed, but sometimes it's nice to just browse a shop for things I don't come across in the MP.
I also have the problem with my PM's sending as blank messages or random coding. I never know if the message was messed up until after I get a reply.
It would be really nice if there was a back button instead of the "Menu" button, that's incredibly annoying when you're browsing the forums.
My biggest concern is that the iPhone 5 has been out for ages, (well, since Septemberish), but the app still doesn't fit the screen. So it's not compatible with the bigger screen on the iPhone 5 and there's a lot of blank space.
I just got the app, using it now in fact! In the past I avoided it because of what seemed like mostly negative reviews but then I thought, don't be a butt! Try it an help improve it. Over all I'm not as disappoint as review lead me to assume. My suggestion are:
1) the ability to see who's online while in forums.
2) newest notices highlighted.
3) trying on items in MP.
