Quote from: sysadmin on January 05, 2011, 03:34:52 AMOh boy. I was afraid of this.I was previously willing to sanction a type of social networking app. That is a fairly broad net, and I can listen to ideas on this point.However, I cannot really permit a third-party application that essentially duplicates key functions of existing FanimeCon content.Let me be more plain:FanimeCon is planning a schedule-based iPhone application. This is in addition to existing mobile schedule site. This means we can't give consent to any app that plans to duplicate this or otherwise re-implement this.FanimeCon 2010 published real-time schedule updates through its mobile schedule RSS feed, as well as other related feeds. This should be the same or expanded in 2011. I don't know if you're planning to rebroadcast the twitter updates, RSS feed, or something else, but it is unlikely that we will sanction an application that simply rebroadcasts what we already publish.The FanimeCon 2010 website and program guide included map information (and, I believe, included a "what's nearby" guide). The FanimeCon 2011 site and guides are expected to do the same. This means we can't give consent to any app that plans to copy this information.I understand that I'm being a bit direct, especially when I'm only looking at a picture of an application.If you want to design an application that isn't simply re-duplicating already extant features, that's different and might turn into a fruitful discussion.However, when we start seeing our content, especially our official logo, appearing on things that are not created by FanimeCon, that gets into a very testy area and I need to come down on that.

I think there's nothing wrong with the Android (It's as good as the iPhone IMO) and I think they android should make an app too. But, they're prob make you use m.fanime.com. Sorry.
Quote from: Kupo on February 24, 2011, 04:29:02 PMFanimeCon Community Tweets/Updates/Dispatch - Maybe link an RSS Feed of a "hashtag" #FanimeHappenings or #FanimeCommunity or something. Where people can tweet about issues and updates about what's going on at Fanime? It's more community based. It would seem informative and can also prove helpful. Promotes a better community and increases exposure for problems and information that needs to be brought to attention.Examples:"Oh no! Don't go to the Marriot Elevator right now, someone just threw up in there. #FanimeCommunity""Starting at 5pm, for only 5 Minutes. I'm doing a buy one, get one free deal @ Artist Alley Booth #21 #FanimeCommunity""Anyone seen my Fanime Badge? I think I dropped it... The ID is Blue, the name Bob Smith and nickname is ShoryukenBob #FanimeCommunity""The lines are starting for _______'s concert! So if you don't want a long wait, start lining up now! #FanimeCommunity"Wow, I just beat @ReubenLangdon at MvC3! He's at Stage Zero right now if you want to see some fights. #FanimeCommunity"There's a fight going on between the Christian Protesters and some irate Fanime Con-goers outside. #FanimeDispatch
