CC App?

Post by abbysix »

Not sure if this is feasible, but it would be great to have a smart phone app for CC authors. Not that I would ever submit via iPhone or anything, but would be great for keeping track of our account, checking on the status of our submissions, and claiming writer pool requests. For some reason, if I'm not at my computer and I want to see what the day's public requests are or check on any sales, it takes for eh ver to load Constant-Content using my phone's browser. Just a thought!

Ooh, agreed! This would be excellent for claiming pool requests in particular.

I'm actually working on one myself. Elance has an API and they gave me an auth key for, but CC would be straight up scraping. I wonder if they'd get annoyed by that.

This would be great. The CC website isn't very mobile friendly at all at the moment.

+1 on this. I'm about to go on a trip and I just looked through the Google Play store to see if there was one, then came here to see if one was mentioned.

Personally, I don't find the site at all difficult to access via a mobile browser, since it doesn't have a lot of fancy features to mess things up.

I would use an app if it was compatible with my OS (Android 2.3.6). A lot of new apps aren't.
