Am I the only one who feels an urge to an app like this?

I'm for this. I've got a Droid X, and for whatever reason when I try to log into evegate via the browser, it never lets me get past the "enter a character on this account" security screen. Crying or Very sad

Yes for making it compatible with mobile browsers (which should be no problem if they just follow standards).

No for making an app to effectively view a website (which is what a browser is already for) for WM6.0, WM7.0, Android, Iphone, Symbian, etc.

agree with Furb Killer

need an app that will be formatted for the phone, not a browsers. I would like to see it but I'm not going to hold my breath. Go Figure...

Are you using a custom ROM? The site loads just fine on my Galaxy S using both the default browser and DolphinHD.

Back on topic, not supported. With the amount of people now days using smart phones with built-in browsers that can handle rendering regular webpages very well, it seems like a real waste of dev time to make a special mEveGate.

Nope, but i did see that they changed it to where the name checker is cap sensitive so that might be why (looks like around the time i was trying to get in)


[UPDATE]

Just checked it, and it works fine on the native browser.

Really this is not needed, the existing site works well in a modern mobile browser. I wish the Android Market was not stuffed with so many of these redundant 1 website in an app apps.

An app is not necessarily needed I think. But eve gate and the forums could be programmed in a way, so they can adapt to mobile phones browsers.

Like other have said, a compatible browser could be sufficient.

But having an app dedicated to eve gate (like facebook app on smartphones) could be also interesting.

Sing Jai, you're not alone. I've started programming an EVE iPhone app, inspired by the late Capsuleer app. It can read mails all in the app interface, but to compose or reply ect. to evemails it relies on EVE Gate. Unfortunately, EVE Gate will not log in on my phone, I even tried it on the iPhone simulator and it would not log in. Sounds like something CCP needs to fix or we WILL need an app to view it.

Well, basically impossible since the smart phones are to weak still. But I know for sure there might be some other things that can be done. Flying around in your ship will likely be a no go for now, so don't aspect wonders. You most likely will be able to look in your wallet, corp wallet, look at your orders, contracts, such things. Sending mails may well be possible and working on your skills is likely.

But besides that i fear not much more can be done without destroying the game itself. But there can deffo be something done in this.

i do support an app or a mobile friendly version of eve gate, whichever is most efficient.

@Kumi, mobile Eve is def not realistic, but i dont think anyone here is suggesting that...
