Can you upload using mobile / cell phone?
« on: January 30, 2012, 01:10:42 pm »

Got a board running at www.flipperbox.com

Cant seem to upload using my Iphone.  Is this the case with all mobiles? Is it all Iphones or am I just doing something wrong?

I know it won't do bulk upload because it needs flash, but it wont let me do it on the single upload either?

Is there something I can change in the settings that I have not seen?   Or is there a plugin that I have not been able to find?  Or is it just not meant to be?

What exactly happens when you try to upload with the HTML upload form? It should work with all HTML browsers, but I haven't tested that yet. Maybe some people with iPhones and other mobile devices can share their experiences.

Hi, thanks for your reply.

When on the upload screen the 'choose...' button isn't available.

On my phone I have safari as standard and the opera mini app.  Its the same prob in both browsers.

Wonder if anyone else has these issues....
I'll try get someone to test it on blackberry / Android later

Just tested successfully on Android (Gingerbread) with stock browser and Opera Mobile.

@Visitor: there's a flash uploader and a single HTTP upload form. We're talking about the single uploader here.

Perhaps its time to get a new phone...
I'll try messing with the phone settings perhaps, see if I can make it through that.

Off the top of your head, do you think there is anything in the settings that could be stopping me?  I've looked, but nothing springs to mind really

I don't know. Never had an iPhone nor probably will have one. Maybe some other iPhone users can confirm that behavior, but I doubt that it's impossible to use the HTTP file upload function.
