(This info updated July 28th / 3:10PM) Hi everyone! Some exciting news today! Thanks to a great little company called AppsGeyser, TruthForFree.com now has its very own App for Android phones!!! AND the app has also just been officially released on the Android Market (a.k.a. Google Play)! You can download it directly from AppsGeyser or browse for TruthForFree on the Android Market. Make sure to select the option for automatic updates to make sure you have the most current version of the app.
This is the “first-run” official app for the TruthForFree.com website and I’m very excited to offer it, but it remains a work in progress. The app provides a more convenient portal to the mobile version of this site and also quick access to the TruthForFree YouTube page and Facebook page and now, best of all, GROUP MOBILE CHAT!!! This new update allows people using both the phone and the website to connect and communicate! Since this addition, I decided to remove the Envolve Chat program you used to see at the bottom of the page. I liked the Envolve chat, but it doesn’t work right on many mobile devices so I decided to better utilize the chat room on this site. Now that it connects with the app and mobile website, it’s that much easier for all of us TruthForFree-ers to connect! Well, that’s the hope anyway. 🙂
Although the app serves primarily as a portal to the mobile site (rather than being a full-featured stand alone app), it does have some unique advantages over a standard “bookmark” saved on your phone… Here’s a few worth mentioning:
For one, you can view the full TruthForFree.com website if you desire and zoom in to read the text and the app will format the page so the words wrap for easy reading (something not normally possible when viewing the site directly). In order to view the full site, you will have to choose the option on the page itself to switch to the full version of the site (this is located at the bottom of the mobile website).
There are also convenient tabs you can press to instantly take you to the TruthForFree YouTube or Facebook pages as well (and, of course, the new chat tab)!!! Press your menu button on your phone for even more options like Share (to tell your friends about the app and give them an easy link to download it) and Refresh (in case the pages stall while loading)! More tabs may be added in updated versions. I’m a totally rookie at this app stuff, so I appreciate your patience.
I sincerely hope you guys with Android phones enjoy this new app. For all you iPhone users, I would love to eventually provide an apple-friendly app as well in the future. I’m sorry, but I do not have an estimate for you at this time. Luckily, the regular TruthForFree site should be iPhone-friendly in its auto-switching mobile version already. iPhone users can easily bookmark the site on their devices and they can also use the mobile chat option! The main website should auto-convert to whatever mobile device you are using, but if you like you can try going directly to the mobile site by entering mobile.truthforfree.com into your device.
Have a great day all! God bless!
