I've been researching the possibility of making a mobile app for QueryTracker. But in the process of learning how, I had to program something so I could see what it took.

I decided to make the most pointless game I could think of, and here it is. http://querytracker.net/fun.php

Have fun.

I'll have to check this out, it looks fun! But I really hope you're able to make a mobile app; I tried searching for one on the app store a few months ago and was surprised to see there wasn't one. I'd get it!

One nice thing about making it an app is that, as an app, it will be able to send (and maybe receive) the actual emails directly. This will make one-click queries possible. Something I tried a few years ago on the site, but there were too many issues with trying to do it in a browser.

So far, the votes are about 5:1 for an app.

I would totally do a QT app. Beats checking it on my phone all the time.


Also, I convinced my sister to buy the game, as she plays games on her phone and I don't.

Well, okay. I'll just get it and play it! That works too.
