I would like to say that I really like the decision to go with a dedicated mobile site. The site is slick, it's efficient, all the information and functionality that I want appears to be there, and I don't have to update it. I, for one, love it.

Good on you, guys.

Thank you for your kind words, we appreciate it and we're excited about the new mobile-optimized site that will recognize your device and was specifically tested for the Android OS.

Id really like to be able to draft on my android phone. When is that going to happen?

SirYancy Aug 24 '13

You know, since Android apps are written in Java, this shouldn't be too much of a problem, you'd think.

El_Dictator Aug 31 '13

Agreed on appreciation for the mobile site. I can see wanting an app for draft purposes; aside from that, apps are generally just mobile websites except that you have to upgrade, etc. There's a reason phone apps are being replaced by mobile websites (which are actually being referred to as apps by those in the design/development business).

IT'S REALLY SAD THAT THERE STILL ISN'T AN APP FOR ANDROID... I KNOW OUR LEAGUES WILL BE LEAVING FLEAFLICKER NEXT YEAR IF THERE ISN'T ONE SOMETIME THIS YEAR... I'M IN 3 LEAGUES ON HERE AND 2 ON YAHOO. I'D MUCH RATHER SWITCH THEM ALL TO YAHOO BECAUSE OF THE LACK OF AN APP...

We understand there still is demand for a native app, but we put a lot of time and resources to roll out our groundbreaking and wave-of-the-future mobile-optimized site, that was tested for all devices, specifically for the Android.

Have you tried it? We hope you like it. It has all the functions and more of a native app. It's free, no glitches, no upgrades, we do the work for you and your device so you don't have to. As for the app part, go ahead and bookmark it on your homescreen and our icon will be there you can go ahead and click on.

We value your feedback and hope this suffices while we always review everything as a team.

I've used the mobile site that was created and think it is hands down better than any of the apps I've used through other fantasy providers. As you mention, just bookmark the site to your homepage and it feels like an app. You have to get used to where everything is it but it is great. Give it a try! Fleaflicker did a great job.

I could not draft from my iPod

deaaggie Jun 22 '13

Any news on an android app before 2013 season?

FleaMod Admin Jun 23 '13

The new version has been tested and optimized for all devices and specifically for the Android OS. So in turn, we believe and hope the need for a native app was addressed with our new mobile-optimized version. You and the users in your league can bookmark the site now like an app.

I hope this helps. We are listening and do appreciate your suggestions and input though.

Thanks.

I noticed that. looks pretty good.

Is the draft room still on Java? If so. The website is NOT Android friendly. Fleaflicker is the only major FF site that still doesn't have a proper android app. Very disappointed and will probably be our last year on Fleaflicker.

FleaMod Admin Aug 06 '13

We hear you and are working on this now. It's tops on our priority to revamp the draft room and make it mobile friendly with auctions and much more, but won't have it in time for this year, sorry.

bossfrog Aug 07 '13

Thanks for the reply. It sounds like you guys know how much you're behind the curve right now. That's a good sign. Git 'er done by next summer and we'll stay around.

No drafting from my phone? Are you serious? I have two leagues I'm looking to move. Looking at Yahoo, ESPN and NFL.com. Any advice on who has the best mobile app that you CAN draft in?

El_Dictator Aug 31 '13

Actually, they have been way ahead of the curve for over half a decade. I am only now able to stand Yahoo - who had to get a new team last year for their Fantasy Football. And that's because Yahoo is just now adding features that have been staples at FleaFlicker for years. I'm trying to decide which product to purchase (probably EDGE) just to support what has been by far a better experience overall. I'm speaking as the commish of several leagues - the flexibility I've had here for custom settings, settling disputes, making reasonable accommodations, etc., has been great. And all that without the clutter and nonsense (still not cluttered with the ads IMO).

I can understand being frustrated if you need to be able to draft from your phone. If that's a big need for you this year, then I certainly don't mean deride you for it at all. Just wanted to put my $.02 in on where FleaFlicker has been with regard to features and overall experience.

This is preventing me from using your site. I would love to set up all my leagues here, but I need an android app.

joe5370 May 08 '13

agree with this post. I have three Leagues waiting to be transfered.

El_Dictator Aug 31 '13

An app for what? Drafting from the phone? Yeah, I can definitely understand not transferring for that reason if your league needs that capability.

But otherwise, a good mobile website (now often referred to as an "app" by developers) is more useful - the industry is dropping apps as a fad because good mobile websites do almost all of it better.

I'm keeping my fingers crossed we'll have one for the 2013 NFL season...

WoodChipper Jan 13 '13

The app on the ipod isnt that great so you arent missing out on much.

Gael13 Jan 09 '13

Any news????

MrChance Dec 13 '12

I don't understand what everyone is complaining about, I have a Droid Inc2 and can use the browser built into the phone to get into my Flea team and do everything that I can do online? Why is an app needed? Just have a bookmark on your home screen and your fine....

At least they could make their site more smartphone friendly...
