    Hey guys.

    I am in the process of trying to develop a BOC application for a cell phone and am looking for some input as to what to focus on. I am just in the design phase of the project and am interested in, first, would you use an application for accessing the BOC on a cell phone and, second, what would be the top 3 things you would like to see in a cell phone application? For instance, what would be the most important things for you to use a cell phone for accessing the BOC....PM'ing, User control panel, posting photos, chat room, ect.?

    Any input you could provide would be greatly appreciated. I am not sure if I am going to be able to do this, but I am going to be giving it a try and I wanted to focus on the most important things to the users before I go off half-cocked.

    Thanks a lot.

    Hey Kyle--what areas of the BOC do you check on your phone? Do you PM?

    I use my iPhone to view the BOC pretty frequently. I've found for the most part the current site works fairly well.

    The issues:
    -iPhones will not handle any flash
    -The photo viewer does not work (loads photo viewer to center of screen, touch the screen to scroll down and the viewer closes)
    -cannot upload photos from phone
    -any video must be in whichever format youtube uses

    I'd definetly use the app if one was developed.

    I access the site daily on my smart phone. The only thing I would like to do is be able to chat. Everything else is good on my end.
