Help us test the new Mobile MeritBadge.Org!

Postby milominderbinder2 » Tue Nov 04, 2008 6:22 pm

600 New Pages Just Added!

Would you like to have the Scout requirements right on your phone?

Now you can with the mobile version of MeritBadge.Org!

Mobile MeritBadge.Org is customized for your cell phone, Blackberry, or PDA. In the top left corner of any normal MeritBadge.org, click Mobile/PDA interface.

The mobile version contains:
*Over 600 pages and links customized for a small screen.
*Requirements for over 300 ranks, awards, and badges.

Imagine having the Boy Scout, Cub Scout, Venturing, and Varsity requirements with you any time!

The pages have limited graphics so they download fast on a mobile connection.

Please help test Mobile MeritBadge.Org on your phone or PDA or even PC.

If you want to see how it would look on a cell phone, try this:
http://www.testiphone.com/

Enter meritbadge.org in the address line and click the graphics twice, click Advancement and then the mobile link. Yes that is not a very nice way to get in but it does work and saves a lot of typing. This is still a beta test!

Sweet! I have it bookmarked as a favorite. Looks pretty good on my Windows Mobile 6.1 device. Will let you know if i run into any issues. Thanks for all the hard work!

That is one that we have not tested on at all.

If you could really ring it out, that would be great.

After a month of testing, we have added dozens of new pages and made many tweaks.

Thank you all for your feedback.

Did you see that you can now get to the mobile MeritBadge.Org by just going to http://m.meritbadge.org/?

On most phones you can just enter: m.meritbadge.org.

Anything else to do?
