Hello,

I just started using the AB 3.3 Beta and was trying to use the Mobile Roster option. I was able to create the roster no problem, but cannot open it with my Android 2.2 phone. It won't open the .htm file.

I can read them fine on my laptop.

This feature is very important to me as it would elimiated the need to carry paper roster for casual games.

I suppose pdfs would work, but I like how the mobile rosters collapse and expand the details so only the units show.

Any suggestions? Is there an app I should install that will handle it.

Thanks.

Brian

The mobile roster is just a plain .htm file - have you tried opening it in the web browser on your phone, or emailing it to yourself?

You could also try using one of the file hosting services mentioned in the AB manual, and viewing it in your phone from there.

Hope this helps!

As an aside:

I have an iPad. I'd like a electronic file as well as my paper one.

I tried outputting a vanilla PDF file, and then converting to EPUB using Calibre.

I ended up with 80 pages of nothing and text strewn across the remainder. iTunes doesn't support vanilla PDF either, so exactly how is the best way to get a roster into iTunes/onto an iDevice until you sort out an actual app?

FYI: iBooks did support PDF. I was just too thick to figure out how to switch between PDF and Book formats. (That was a long time ago now)

Can you not put PDFs into iBooks any more?
I don't own an iDevice any more, but you used to be able to do that...

You should be able to just load the PDF roster file into iBooks on your iPad without converting it to anything. Alternatively, try an application like GoodReader or GoodReader Lite, or another PDF viewer, which should let you transfer your file to the iPad in their own ways.

A bit late I know, but hopefully adding new information will be ok.

I found Android 2.3 also has this problem, but I got around it by installing the html reader app: https://market.android.com/details?i...=search_result

That generally happens when the viewer you're using won't execute javascript, which is required for the mobile roster to work. Check the Did You Know section of our latest newsletter to see how to get the file onto your iPhone properly.
