It’s about time we had a complete native mobile experience on the una mobile app. 90% of internet users focus on mobile views and 80% on mobile applications. No matter the innovative idea or great framework built. It’s emty and useless when there are no active users on your site. At una, we have quite a lot of tools and customization that’s rare to find else where. Everyday I keep learning more about this beautiful framework with practical endless possibilities to new innovative product. Sadly, all these are better viewed from desktops in which our target audience don’t use as most preferences are now on mobile experience with complete native mobile apps. I always commend the great work and ideology of the una project as it has helped me bring my idea to light but now it’s time to market these ideas and builds to the public and to our target audience and users. Regrettably, the market is not desktop friendly and to have a mobile app in the market nowadays, it must be completely native so as to give a better experience compared to web view. It must be fast and not depend all it’s resources on web view browsing. Una 13 is coming soon, which is a big leap, I believe  it’s also a great opportunity to focus more on our mobile experience and transition to a complete native mobile app. Like Will Roberts had emphasized on several of his post, if we don’t change our focus on mobile experience especially to having a complete native mobile experience, all our ideas and innovative frameworks will eventually be stolen and utilized by these big social tech companies.

Also I understand it’s not a easy task to implement right away as funding plays a big role in the changes we so yearn for. I propose we have a dedicated donation to this at voluntary support to fund a complete native una mobile app. Say a minimum of $50 voluntary donation per person to the una team to support their works for the una app. It’s just an idea and comments are welcomed. If interested in this please leave your comments. I believe if we all can sacrifice at least $50 for this... it will save us thousands of dollars in near future and we surely be compensated with having active users in our communities.

    • When I switched over to UNA it was because I had mobile viewing in mind. I'm glad that UNA is now getting serious about why mobile view especially apps is so important. Apps capture a huge audience of users today. More and more people have phones vs computers. With mobile apps they also need to look different than mobile website viewing because people like to be engaged. From simple button effects to easy navigation. I noticed that the best looking sites always use CSS effects while the least engaging sites are static, bland, and use outdated buttons/icons etc. Hopefully Tailwind will bring in the extra CSS effects that make an app unique. Focusing on app builds and flexibility has the potential to flood and expand UNAs user base. While a lot of customization can be done by other developers and designers it takes more effort and money to maintain the same concept through each update. Errors occur, more bugs appear, and they can't be fixed via UNA because it's custom work. I am extremely excited about UNA 13 and look forward to the long awaited live streaming option. Live streaming isn't just a great addition, it helps monetize Social Networks while competing with Facebook and so many others.
