Interested in helping create a SayNoTo1890 smartphone app?

SayNoTo1890.com on Mobile DevicesIf you’re interested in helping out in a project to create a SayNoTo1890 smartphone app in early 2015, please read more here.

Designing an appropriate SayNoTo1890 smartphone app will make it much easier to dial the geographic alternatives for the 1890, 1850 and 0818 numbers, helping you save even more money. It will also facilitate the sharing of information to gather even more geographic alternatives as well as ensure those numbers are always as up to date as possible.

It’s been something I’ve been thinking about for a while now, and a smartphone app for the SayNoTo1890.com website is a regularly requested feature from the users of the website.

This detailed blog post explains how I’d like to go about building this smartphone app, and what assistance I’d like to get and will need to get the app built, hopefully early in 2015.


Using SayNoTo1890.com on your mobile

SayNoTo1890 on Mobile DevicesI wrote a while ago that I’d done some work in the background to optimise this website for use on your mobile phone – the original post is here.

Over the past few months, I’ve received some feedback saying that the site sometimes didn’t display pages as expected. After some investigations, I think those problems should be fixed now.

So, if you’ve a “smart phone”, you can create a bookmark for SayNoTo1890.com on your home screen that’ll make it just like an “app”, and it’ll take you straight to the A-Z page listing of companies. More instructions on how to do that are provided here.


SayNoTo1890 now optimised for mobile

SayNoTo1890.com on Mobile DevicesI’ve just installed something on the website now that should make using the SayNoTo1890.com website easier on your mobile phone. I’m still testing it at the moment – it’s working only okay for me right now on Android. And it seems to be fairly functional on the iPhone as well.

So, forget paying any money for an 1850 / 1890 / 0818 app – follow the steps below to add SayNoTo1890 to your home screen on your mobile phone and save yourself some money – by avoiding 1890 / 1850 / 0818 call costs, AND avoid paying out money for apps that this site does for free.

What to do?

Go to whichever is your normal browser on your mobile phone, and navigate to SayNoTo1890.com. The A-Z page should open up from there and give you the links to access any of the pages containing the geographic alternatives.

If you want to turn this into a (sort of) app, use your mobile phone browsers functionality to “Add shortcut to Home”. That’ll put the SayNoTo1890 icon onto your screen for easy access in the future.

Your thoughts

I’d appreciate if you could try this out to see if it works okay for you, and if the site performs as you would expect.

Update 23.55

Thanks to the SayNoTo1890 user who has already contacted me about searching via the mobile site. I hadn’t noticed that it was missing, but I’ll follow up now to see how I can get it to work.
