Posting pictures from an iPhone?

Is it possible to post pictures directly from an iPhone? If so, can I have a lesson please?
Ta.

I don't have an iPhone so can't provide a definitive answer - but google suggests:

1. This is a wider problem than just uploading attachments to RIBnet / vBulletin forums - the iPhone Safari browser doesn't support html file upload.
2. That the common work around is to upload to a picture sharing site using an "app" rather than the browser and then include the link on the forum article. e.g. Flickr (using the Flickr iPhone app) or the equivalent for Photobucket.
3. The alternative would require JK to add some 3rd party components to the site (e.g. http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showthread.php?t=240652)which would then enable you, via a $2 app to upload pictures (as well as gaining other browser benefits). That might be slightly more likely than with a normal "feature request", because John is a big iPhone fan anyway.

I'm surprised the iphone cannot do such a simple task without an app.. The P800 had the capability years ago. As does the nokia 5800.. See attached

Sorry, was out on a boat taking photos with my iPhone . . .

. . . then faffed around emailed them to myself on my PC so I could upload them here.

This is something that I've had on my list for a while now. The most likely solution would probably be Tapatalk, but I'm open to other options - any thoughts?

Forumrunner looks a bit better laid out and simpler to use than Tapatalk imo but any iPhone app would get plenty of use by me

Hi, any progress on this?

I've just got one of them iAndroisymbiPhone thingys, and wouldn't mind using an app rather than a full-on browser. Mine is an Android phone so Tapatalk and/or Forum Runner would be good (Forum Runner for Android is only in beta stage at the mo).

Ta ever so,
Ian

I've been looking at Tapatalk and Forum Runner for a while and have now activated Forum Runner.

It seems OK so far, but should only be considered as being in beta test on RIBnet. In other words if it gets scrapped for any reason don't come after me for your £1.19! In the meantime anyone willing to risk the investment is invited to have a try. Post here and let us know how you get on.

With a bit of luck there should be an attachment to this message which has been sent from an iPhone via Forum Runner.

Can't find Forum Runner in the Market on my Android - is that because it's only in Beta at the moment?

Yes. It looks like they're still looking for beta testers though so you may be able to get a copy direct from the developer:

Cookee I think the Android version was only released in private Beta this week: http://www.forumrunner.net/forum/showthread.php?t=236

That's correct, I'm beta testing it at the moment, although I haven't used it for Rib.net yet - that's my task for today when I need a break from work .

I'll report back, and Cookee if you fancied beta testing it too I'm sure they'd be grateful for the feedback.
