Lottery Post Mobile Edition

Todd's avatar - Cylon 200.jpg

I've made some improvements to Lottery Post Mobile, the web site for use with mobile devices like cell phones and PDAs.

At this point I've pretty much finished all the work on the forums (the features are complete).  The mobile features are as follows:

  • The goal of any mobile application is quick and simple access to valuable features and information, so Lottery Post Mobile focuses on only things that are simple to do, and do not require a lot of typing.  Basically, everything should be accessible by moving the arrow control on the device and "clicking" the OK button.
  • The mobile version of the forums is for displaying the discussions, not for posting into the forums.  Having a posting function would be way too much for a mobile device, and would require some sophisticated security measures to make sure that everyone's membership account was totally secure.  The amount of overhead to do all of that would be completely overbearing on the whole thing, so I definitely did not want to put any kind of forums posting capability into it.
  • You can browse the last 20 topics that have messages posted in them.  You can either see the last 20 topics for all the forums, or the last 20 topics in the forum of your choosing.  For example, if you change the forum to the Pick 3 forum, it will display the last 20 topics that have activity in the Pick 3 forum.
  • When viewing a topic thread, it starts at the most recent posting and works backwards each time you click the Previous Post link, until you reach the original post in the topic.

The next piece I will be coding is the results section, which will allow you to see lottery results for any game.  I'll probably also allow you to see the last week of results for any game.

To me, there's a certain coolness about being able to see all this stuff on my cell phone!

To go the Lottery Post Mobile on your mobile device, you can type the URL mobile.lotterypost.com into the URL entry space in your device's web browser.  If you go to the regular URL www.lotterypost.com, it should detect that you are using a mobile device and automatically redirect you to Lottery Post Mobile.  If it doesn't detect your mobile device, just type the URL starting with "mobile...."

Thanks, it's kind of a neat way to stay on top of this in the forums, even if you can't be at your computer.

Any way of having the current jackpots on the page also. In the about section you could also include the benifits of platinum and gold membership and maybe some sponsored links.

Yes, it probably makes sense to add the jackpots too, so I'll probably do that at some point.  I put an "About Us" page there, which will hopefully entice people to check out everything there is to offer lottery players at the full web site.

With the video Ipod, and the new phone that I heard was gonna make the Razor phone obsolete, very shortly, One has to be ahead of the game to either survive, or enhance their product by keeping up with the times, and in the near future, most every electonic transaction or communications will be from  a device or gadget worn on the wrist, right out of Dick Tracy.

Bravo Todd,

Cool......... in between taxi rides, I can log in.

 Next will be text. I hope. LOL
