Official MLR mobile / tablet app

Idea spawned from this thread....

http://www.lancerregister.com/showpo...6&postcount=28

I was just thinking of ways in which the MLR forum experience could be improved upon. One idea was having a dedicated MLR app for people to log on to the forum and interact.

Yes I'm aware there's the likes of tappatalk but I don't think it's the best and having a dedicated app mean we tailor it to the MLR.

Areas of the club which could be integrated to an app (with some new ideas too)
  • Evolution magazine - a newstand link to buy and download digital copies
  • The MLR shop - buy goodies from mbership, show tickets, physical goods, sprints and trackdays etc.
  • Seamless integration with other media sites - facebook, youtube channel etc.
  • Private messaging and chat style messenger
  • Members profiles and garage page - think of it more like your facebook profile page but for you and your evo. It could maybe have the whole friends list and a message wall like FB...
  • Blog pages - what seems to be an under-utilized and hidden area right now
  • Stats - MLR top trumps - everything from rolling road figures, 0-60's, 1/4 miles, 30-130, Time Attack track records
  • Social - from regional meets to pints in a pub to sit down meals

Just wanted to start the ball rolling to see what people think...

Needs an IT specialist / developer to help us out in their spare time methinks

I would use it if it was available on Android, Kindle, etc.

Anything that gets tapatalk out of my life is a great idea.

The app could even be a paid app - I'm sure members wouldn't mind paying a couple of quid extra for a better experience. Not for the club to make profit - merely to cover the development costs for the app.

Agreed - would happily pay a few quid to download the app and do without tapatalk adverts/pictures not working etc.

Glad I'm not the only one thinking this - I am planning to have a word with Darin about this the next time we meet up.

I think it would be great for the forum too if the app gave you a pop up when someone replies to a thread your involved in the same way that Facebook does now. Its very last decade ploughing back through forums to find if anyone has replied (yes I know you can subscribe but that's not the same).

You could have links to Google maps etc. for meets - click on the meet and the Maps app opens?

This sounds great - I can't get on with the Tapatalk app. Also happy to donate some time if you could do with an extra code monkey
