Vex App

We need a Vex Forum App. For ease of convenience I would love this and (though I’m not a programmer of this magnitude) I feel it wouldn’t be the hardest to program

@Xenon27 that is an old thread from when the forum was running esoTalk. Things have changed since then.

Here is an up-to-date state of affairs:


TL;DR for the OP: Just “install” the VEX Forum as a progressive web app. There will probably be an option to do this somewhere in your browser’s menu. It will look and feel like an app installed on your phone, even though it technically is not.

ah yes, didn’t bother looking at the date or reading that post, just assumed it was the one you’ve linked here.

Could the same be done with iPhone?

Yes. Go to the VEX Forum within Safari, then go to Share > “Add to Home Screen”.

Yes, you must use Safari, and yes, Safari will always be used behind-the-scenes to “run” the PWA.

If you want to use any other browser to power your VEX Forum experience, the best you can do on iOS is a bookmark within said browser.

In addition to just using the PWA that has been discussed, there are also Discourse apps for both Android and iPhone that should work with vexforum.com (and any other Discourse forum).

iOS: https://apps.apple.com/us/app/discourse-app/id1173672076?ls=1
