For those of you who will transition from the App to a browser on an iPhone, you can add an App-like Forum icon to your Home Screen:

1. Open your favorite Forum page in a browser.

2. Tap the center icon on the screen. This icon looks like an arrow rising from a square (see image).

3. Tap add to Home Screen (see image).

Dear all,

I am considering discontinuing the Camino forum app (the one that can be downloaded for iOS and Android, links at the bottom of this page). There are a few reasons:
  • The forum is now optimized for mobile devices and you can visit it in the browser.
  • The App does not include the new sections we have created in the forum like the Calendar, the Camino Resource Section and the Photo album. This leads to confusion among users, since the App users can not see everything that is available on the website. Also links to the "User Settings" that are posted in the forum, will not work in the app since the settings there are accessed in a different way.
  • The app cost me money each month, and although I do have ads on it, it does not cover the cost of the app.
I have pretty much made my mind up, but I wanted to hear from users that are currently using the app... would you be ok with going back to using the website http://www.caminodesantiago.me/community/ in your mobile webbrowser instead of the app?

Thanks for your feedback!
Ivar
How do I get the app? I signed up with you and made a donation to be sure, but I still can't put it on my phone...any techies out there that can help me?

Hi there,

So the app where you can browse the forum is gone. Now you just to to the website https://www.caminodesantiago.me/community/ on your tablet/phone and that's it.

The Camino Places App can be found here:
https://itunes.apple.com/WebObjects/MZStore.woa/wa/viewSoftware?id=967223708&mt=8

Thanks for your donation!

The app mentioned in this post was free, but has not been available for over 1 year. The app now for sale is different app and is working just fine.

Sorry for the confusion!
Ivar
So it's a apple only app?

You can just uninstall the forum app since it is no longer in use. Access the forum by using this link:
https://www.caminodesantiago.me/community/
..in Chrome (or your mobile browser).
For android phones, you can add an icon to your home screen (and then move it to any other screen) by doing the following:
1. With the above link open in your browser, tap the line of three dots in the upper right corner.
2. Tap "Add to Home Screen"

cycled from Pamplona Sep 2015;Frances, walked from St Jean 2017.
As a very late adopter of thr iPad, I have not used the app. In fact it was some weeks after I started travelling and using the web browser. So I will not miss what I have not experienced. Cheers
