    Yes, I also sent a message to Snedhepl when he first asked about it, and I haven't heard anything back. Did he PM anyone else? Does someone have details about the new API?

    For anyone else wondering, Sned said to me he'd post about the new event tracking thing on Monday.

    Please don't do this. I just invited two new friends to the game, and the mobile app was one of the selling points. I love being able to gather a few shinies when I'm on my lunch break at work. RIFT Mobile is such a great part of the game for me.

    Thanks for reading.

    Been with rift for quite a long time. The idea with the Rift mobile app was a good one. Letting us stay in touch with guild while we where away from the computer. The little games I really didn't care much for. Since nobody could reply to you in tell from in game to mobile The friend tell system was pretty useless.

    If you are really going to get rid of this app, I would just like that you ATLEAST leave the guild function for this app. Or give us a way to talk to each other threw it. On top of this you tell us that you need the resources and dev time for other things is kinda just slapping us in the face.

    You have not updated or even tried to update this app in so long that is doesn't support half the new version of phones. So what you should have told was. "Hey guys sorry that we have not had the man power/funds to put the time into the mobile app. So we are gonna close it down." Trion your Liar skill is over 9000.

    Default Trion's war on women gamers

    There are a lot of female gamers for whom it is not a good idea to share the personal information which would be required to communicate with their guild while out of the game. And not just for women. The /g communication is critical.

    The persistent chat is not critical. You could drop the stateful stuff and the freebies and no one would care much. Tho the event api is also used by many.

    This is 2015 and this isn't a complicated app. If your game doesn't have a mobile presence people are in some other games app during the day chatting and interacting with some other game during the day. When they get home what happens to the game that isolated itself from the mobile world compared to the game someone was thinking about through the day?

    How many games does Trion have? If Trion doesn't have a mobile java guy that could rewrite this in a week they need to have one or sub it out. Mobile isn't the past, but completely ignoring moble makes you the past.

    Default What if?

    Question to rift developers: Can you keep existing chat API or provide another chat API if someone else writes a mobile client that many players will like and use? Maybe you can keep it for 1-2 months to give the community a chance?

    Question to rift community: Is there anyone ready to write a mobile iOS/Android client if rift keeps its chat API?

    As far as I know current chat API is rather simple and provides at least:
    • Friends chat. Read friends list of your characters, whisper to any friend, receive whispers. Offline messages work too, you can whisper to people currently offline and they can read your messages later when they log in.
    • Guild chat. Read guild info, level, motd and wall. List guild members. Read guild chat and write to it. Last guildchat messages are also stored in case you were offline for a while.

    Very basic proof-of-concept python client: http://pastebin.com/Sb02Zaqg

    I won't do mobile, but I was writing a python library which would allow most PC platforms

    I'm sadly disappointed with the removal of the app. For me its a cornerstone of Rift. Something that sets it apart from other games.

    Communication, event tracking, some extra shinies when you're on the run. So many things that should be removed from or fixed from Rift, App is not one of them.

    I just hope that someday you can bring it back in some sort of fashion. Sad to lose something very innovative.

    Making this decision was very difficult, but ultimately we have to look at how we can provide the best game for all of our players, not just the small segment that used the app.
    But what if the segment was larger? Zone events api was kept because many players use event trackers. What if there were popular rift chat apps?

    Some people say official app was broken and they couldn't use it. What if someone writes another app? What if that app becomes popular? Would that be a good enough reason to keep the chat API?

    That's what the question was about. API still works. For now. Is there anyone willing to take that chance and try to write a nice mobile client for it?

    (see previous message for a demo code and a brief description of what it can do)
