Default App for Team-BHP listed on Nokia Ovi Store

Note from Mod: The Team-BHP Apps for iPhone / iPad / iPod Touch can be found at this link (Team-BHP App for your iPhone / iPad / iPod Touch). The Android App can be found at this link (Team-BHP App for your Android Phone & Tablet).



Hi All,

I was always longing to have a mobile application for accessing Team-BHP forum on the go as I use internet on my phone more than on laptop while travelling. Recently I came across the Nokia app wizard for content sharing and I thought it would be brilliant to have a Team-BHP mobile app so that we all can have real time updates of the posts on the forum on the go. Since I personally don’t own the content in the forum, I had a message exchange with GTO and he gave me “go ahead” to create the app. So here it is.

“The first version of the Team-BHP mobile app on Nokia Ovi Store.”

How to download the app?

Option 1: Using Laptop

Step 1: Go to Ovi Store: Home
Step 2: Search for “Team-BHP” and you will get the app page.
Step 3: Follow instructions to download and install on phone.

Option 2: Using a Nokia phone

Step 1: Go to Ovi Store on Nokia Phone
Step 2: Search for “Team-BHP”

Now coming the details (Devil is in the details as my Boss says... )
1. The application is for S60 based Nokia phones.
2. The application is optimized for touch screen phones (5800, N97, N8 etc.) so there will be some text alignment problems in phones with smaller screens
3. The app is a web browser based app and uses the forum RSS feed for this app.
4. The posts will be arranged in the order of posting date/time and not organized as the web forum. But, if you click on “See original story” then it will open up the Team-BHP website in the Forum format in the same window but it is very data heavy. So people with no mobile data plans "be careful".

Note: I am not a professional coder/Software engineer. So this may not be the best mobile app for Team-BHP. I hope this is the starting point and this will the first step towards a full-fledged mobile app for Team-BHP in the near future and even I am eager to have the best mobile experience of the Team-BHP forum. (Also on other mobile platforms as i have an Android now)

Important to note: There is no revenue from the ad banners if at all present on the app.

Dude, thanks, but I do not own a smart phone.

All I have is a 5130XM (pending upgrade / change right now) and used to use the mobile skin while browsing this forum.

Is uploading pics possible with this app?

Hope you will come up with an android app pretty soon - there is an android thread out there, and asking there may help.

Tip for people wanting to download to PC and then transfer to mobile - once you reach the "send to mobile" or similar screen, change the last line in the URL bar to "download" and the jar file will be downloaded by the browser.

@thamban: congrats buddy. @ present I am using tbhp mobile on my BB. An app for BB would be great too...spreading the word tbhp.

Visibility is what matters coz the content is what we believe in.

I installed the app and looks nice, especially the tiny pictures along side the threads that contains photos.

But tell me, how better is this from the T-BHP Mobile Theme/Style that is already available? I use this theme on my E71 extensively and its the greatest thing that happened to T-BHP When you click the "New Posts" link, you get all the new posts.

However, if you modify your app to refresh the contents periodically to reflect the new posts, it would be great. Like a "push" system.

Can anyone please make an iPhone and/or BB app? That should satisfy a lot of members who want to access TBhp from their phones. Unfortunately the Mobile theme is not so great for the iPhone :(

Hey thamban, great stuff I'm able to browse through the forum and read all the latest posts, but the real deal would be if I get to login/post on the forum too. Also why do you have the ovi-store link or does it come on by default?
