Email And Droid App

6 posts in this topic

I have two questions, if emailed my post to someone how does it look in there inbox? I don't use my real name and I didn't know if they would realize it was me. Also is there an android app for this site?

You don't email a 'post' to someone. You can email a link (which unless it's a public portion of the website, they can't access it without an account) or you copy the text from your post and paste it into an email body.

Secondly, if they aren't a member of AS there's a lot of questionable ethics involved in public sharing of private posts, even if they are your own, considering who may have replied. Some portions are private for a reason.

Thirdly, as far as I know, there is no 'app' for AS. It may be optimized for mobile devices, but one doesn't really make an 'app' for everything.

Lastly, if you're emailing it to someone, either from your email or your phone, they're going to figure out who you are. And if you are worried about your privacy in this matter, you should consider that of other members as well.

Hi,

You can use this site off any web enabled device - however for best usage - it would be better to use this site on computer, personally I would use Firefox or Chrome.

We ask members not to copy and paste posts from protected sections of this website, rather send a link.

Thanks

John

I have copied and pasted my own story when I wanted to tell someone what happened but I couldn't face writing it all out. I think copy and pasting your own post should be okay, because it's something you could write anyway, as long as it doesn't show other people's responses or anything others have said.

I'm not quite sure what you're asking though. If you are emailing someone, they'll see whatever name you use on your email plus the content of the email. There are also other things that can be seen sometimes, like IP address. Can you maybe explain a bit more about what you're wanting to do, then we can give better advice.

I'd love an app for AS. But I'm a app freak, :shrugs::shrug:

Yes that's absolutely OK - it's more just about respecting others people's privacy.

You can PM people from AS, but we don't have an email function inbuilt.

In terms of an App for AS, it may actually be a really good way to promote to website to people. Like all it would have to be is a web browser application made to the dimensions of AS - pretty straight forward stuff, Java :) But would mean we could put the app on Itunes and people would see our site, now that'd be cool :P
