not sure what you thought i meant...but i was saying if they found any of the old threads i was talking about, not to necro them sweatdrop

Ah, my apologies; I did have a bit of trouble following the train-of-thought, there. Seeing the line breaks, I thought the two were distinct thoughts - I can see now how they may not have been... redface

zOMG's been shelved; meaning: no more updates. An app is unlikely to be made.

ITs actually far from being shelved as they are doiing durem, buccaneer boardwalk and many other things

zOMG! on the Ipad !?
I'll have to replace the ipad every few weeks or so emotion_awesome too much tapping and sliding xd
lol it be fun lol
I understand but if there's a way there's will lol if I got the term right but I'm pretty sure Gaia can give it a rethink. Like there buisness would go up and more ppl would come on new comers joining. How many of you know some friends don't get on anymore? If Gaia made an app they can carry there little iPod or I pads around and Kuching there's your ratings . Does anyone under stand me where I'm going with this? Lol I mean Gaia would be richer in money and ratings lol

zOMG has a Flash front end client. iPad/iPod/iPhone will NEVER support Flash natively. There are work arounds, but you can google those yourself. (Adobe is no longer supporting mobile Flash for Android, either.)
Gaia would need to put together a team to rewrite zOMG into Objective-C in order for it to be an App. Seeing as I don't have experience with scripting Flash, I don't have a good estimate for how difficult that would be/how long it would take. I also don't know how easily the art assets could translate between. Additionally, in my opinion at least, a simple port is not enough: they would need to redesign the UI and input methods for a touch interface.

As for how much money they would make from such a thing, I'm a bit dubious. Sure, you could convert power-ups into in-app purchases, but if the app isn't hugely popular would it recoup the cost of creating it?

Yeah? Where did you hear that?

Has anything changed? Countless threads, even those from the admins of Gaia, tell a different tale.
A sample of the threads.

I would love ZOMG for the iPad. When in play zomg I mostly use the cursor anyway. I click on something my character moves I click on the rings for an action and click on the enemies to attack them. Why not use my fingers? I think it would be fun the size of fingers shouldnt be much of a problem probably every ring be the size of a thumb I imagine. The chat may be a problem but I imagine a nicely portioned space for chat and the GPS. Think of it like a bento. On the left GPS and chat and the right of course play area and bottom of play area rings just rings. Since it iPad not need for the gps button and chat button for it will already be available I hope. The space just for the rings and settings and of course that one bag to check rings and other ring section but which that holds power ups. This is my opinion on how the app should be yes, it probably has flaws but hey ZOMG on my iPad that's pretty awesome by itself, I'm actually typing this on my iPad. Portability...playing ZOMG on long sometimes boring road trips, yelling becuse i have a disfunctunal crew on the go? Awesome ;3

Many People may think you can't use Gaia on iPod but there is one way not saying its cheap intact it's prity expensive you only really need java and this took me days to find but a app cald cloud browse might work for like ten min at a time unless you want to pay 10 to 100$ extra but I won't do that the app it's self costs 3$ so if your really desperate there is a way.( it is under java in the apple app store) sweatdrop
I just wanted to take the time to say that it is possible to play ZOMG and surf Gaia without needing an actual app. I'm doing it right now, on my iPad 2. I bought photon flashplayer browser and it allows me to do everything I could do with my laptop, including ZOMG.
