    at the bottom of the forum....you'll see a little bar. it says chat, then to the right of that you'll see an icon that says "chat rooms" when you hover over it. click it.

    AO Chatroom for Mobile Devices:

    http://automags.org/forums/arrowchat/mobile/

    You will need to log into the site with whatever web browser you use. You may need to reload the page before it works.

    It should look like....





    I'll put together some FAQs if people like this thing...

    Hmm. I haven't heard much feedback yet. We only have a few more days until the trial version of the chat software ends. What do you guys think of the chat feature.

    I like it,
    it gives people the ability to have a non stop conversation,
    almost like a phone call

    I used it a lot today I know that much. private chat very helpful to say the least.

    I liked it. I got little quiet towards the end, but all in all I liked it.

    I used it a couple of times. Pretty neat.
    Is it a subscription that can be cancelled if it doesn't really work out?
    or is it an all in purchase?

    It is a one-time fee of $125

    Chat was great while using a computer. Using it on a smartphone was damn near impossible. Not a mobile device friendly chat app.

    Were you using the mobile URL that I posted in this thread or did you use the web browser on the phone?

    One time fee of $125 is not bad. Hopefully it would benefit the community.

    I was using the mobile URL that you provided. The text, and layout for the chat room was entirely too small.

    Do you have to be a member of that Timmy forum to see the chat function you are referring to?

    I really liked the chat and used it a lot. Now that we have more PMs its nice to keep a record of conversations but when we have quick questions the chat has been very helpful. Also I was thinking of fun things we could do like contests or guess speakers in the chat at certain times. I would be willing to toss in a few $ if that would help bring it back.

    $ isn't an issue. Tom said we had $ left over from the forum upgrades.

    As for the shoutbox, try something like this:

    I just flat out missed the trial.

    Chat on a phone isnt bad when you have a 5 inch screen, still, who has time during the day for that....

    When I'm home the phones kicked to the curb.

    The current chat function will be here for a while No more trial versions.

    Round 2:
    - I have enabled notifications (The only notification are PMs as of now, waiting for arrowchat to program new ones)
    - I also enabled the "Who's Online" application to show a world map of where everyone is from.
    - I changed the theme to a thing called "leaf" just so it didn't look like facebook.

    I know alot of you are having trouble with the mobile version so please let me know what is going on with it. Please post up phone details (Make/Model) so I can try and figure out what is going on.

    Please continue to let me know what you guys think of Arrowchat.
