Re: QRPspots Android App
I'll take a stab at this. I've only had my Android tablet (Google Nexus 7) since Christmas, so I still have a lot to learn.toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
It appears to me that you can access the internet and web pages with a smart phone or tablet, but the screen typically is much smaller and it is challenging to move around the page and zoom in and enter data, etc.
A well designed app is typically formatted for the smaller screen and makes use of some of the very neat features of the phone or tablet such as auto-rotation for portrait or landscape, GPS positioning so the app knows where you are, screen zoom, etc.
A well written app is typically much easier than accessing via the web. And it provides easy access
Many websites can sense your browser type and automatically route you to a "mobile' website designed for smaller devices. Kinda a cross between a normal wesite and an app.
QRZ.com even has an Android app - QRZDROID - t access callsigns quickly and in a simple format.
Hope that helps.
