Meta: Q, for those using MGoBlogHD

Submitted by kawter on September 17th, 2017 at 11:10 AM
It seems like I see more and more posts with the MGoBlogHD signature.. How are you using it??? The standard app is pretty clumsy and would love to go back to the HD app if possible.

If jailbroken you can install your own IPAs (iphone app files), or unjailbroken you can sideload it but have to reinstall every 7 days. However, I thought when the app initially was discontinued Brian cut it off from pulling in site data, which is why I deleted it. So my answer is ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

 

On a side note, if anyone has the MGoBlogHD .ipa and would be kind enough to send it to me that would just be fantastic.

You know that using the HD app deprives MGoBlog of revenue, which is why it was discontinued. It's fairly shitty to essentially steal free content because the UX isn't 100% convenient.

The UE on this site sucks so bad. So I don't think anyone should have to apologize because the tech has not improved. I think Brian and team run a great ship but they innovate and change at the speed of Blackberry.

I still have it installed on my iPhone. I never deleted it. It still works for me like a charm, though I do not log in, I just use it to read posts. If you still have it on your iPhone, there is a quirk to using it that may cause people to think it doesn't work. Specifically, when you open the app, it gives you the standard "error - app no longer supported" message. Disregard that message. Instead, while the app is still open, go back to the home page and press down hard on the app (I know, it's weird) and re-open it. The second time opening it, the error message does not appear. Instead, it simply looks like it is timing out. At that point, step three is to push the "back" arrow in the top left, and that will take you to the main MGoBlog page. You can also get to the Board that way. That said, I have no idea if I can login with the app, I just use it to read stuff.
