Exetel iOS app removed from App Store

Post by benb » Sun Nov 20, 2016 11:20 pm

The Exetel iOS app ("My Exetel") looks to have been removed from the App Store. I also get a warning "the developer needs to update the app to improve its compatibility". Will the app be updated/return to the app store? I use this regularly to check my ADSL usage.

Hi benb,

We are developing a brand new mobile application with using latest technologies for both iOS and Android platforms. Therefore it requires a new application rather an update to the existing app.

Unfortunately still no ETA from the developing team.

With the demise of the xml feed the iOS app is now completely broken. Is there any news on the replacement app? I found it to be very handy for checking my usage.

That topic does not answer my question. My question is is there an expected date for the iOS Exetel app? It was indicated earlier in this thread (November last year) that one was being worked on.

I know the member facilities can be used, but the page renders with very small text and graphs and is hard to view viewed properly on a mobile device. And it is not as convenient as the mobile app was.

There are many devices and software that display the web site badly or not at all. We went through this once before. The XML service had the benefit of being human readable and available on anything.

A new app is being considered by management.

The response to my original question back in November was a new application is being developed. Now you one is being considered? What has happened in the past 4 months?

The website is very difficult to use on the small screen of a mobile device. The mobile app was very convenient to use and I would encourage you to develop a replacement.

As James have confirmed, it is being considered and if any ETA received, we will update the thread

Add my vote for an updated app please. My preference is for a secure xml feed that could be used for the Firefox addon I use though. A shame that was shut down, it was much more convenient than logging in to My Exetel.
