Just one more thing…

We’ve been rapidly developing new features here at Ning (there’s plenty more to come), but in this latest round of announcements, we wanted to add one more…

It’s now even easier for Network Creators to manage and monitor their Ning Networks on the go. We’re excited to announce that a Ning iPhone app for Network Creators is now available in the Apple iTunes Store.

This app makes it possible for Network Creators with iPhones, iPads or iPod Touches to access their Plus and Pro Ning Networks. Once you’ve installed the app and signed in, you’ll be able to:

  • Monitor your Ning Network’s daily statistics
  • View, approve, delete or add Blog posts
  • View, approve, delete or add Photos
  • View your members’ Profiles
  • Approve, reject or suspend members
  • Add comments to a Blog post or a profile
  • Send a Broadcast Message
  • Stay up-to-date on the latest Ning news

Best of all, this app is free in the iTunes store. You can download it here today. If you have feedback about the app, please let us know on the Creators Ning Network. We hope to continue adding features and functionality to the app, and expand to other mobile platforms as well (such as Android).

The Ning iPhone app is part of our Ning Everywhere effort, which allows Network Creators to customize, integrate and make their social Web sites accessible on any device or service. While this new iPhone app is for Network Creators to manage their Ning Networks, thanks to the new Ning API, Ning Pro networks can bring a better mobile experience to their members. Check out our Ning Everywhere page for more information about the possibilities opened by the API.

    I’ll admit I’m the first to complain when I’m not happy, but I also like to think I’m quick to praise when it’s due, so I’d just like to say this is GREAT news! Thanks very much for this.

    Any chance of an Android version, too? :)

    Downloaded it and can’t get it to load. All the other apps on my iPhone work great, but this one just won’t load. Hmmm…do you need a certain iPhone or OS version?

    Hi there, just using the iphone app which looks good thanks. Any idea when we might be able to add photos/videos to a blog post with the iphone? A picture speaks a thousand words. That would be great.
    Cheers,
    Richard

    Hey, Beach. It should definitely work, but if it isn’t please let us know. You can contact us directly through your dashboard. Simply click on Support and Contact us.

    Hi, roderick. You can embed audio and video with any plan. The breakdown of how the plans work is here, which hopefully will be helpful.

    I downloaded the Ning app to my iPhone but when I select it nothing happens…is there an issue with the iPhone OS that requires an upgrade?

    HI Eric,

    thanks for this post. Little bit off topic, I see you use YARPP in this post. Is this possible to use on the ning blogs and forum aswell? Using Javascript?

    I don’t think that’s possible, although it is a really good idea. We have had similar “add related posts” requests like this. My hope is that we’ll be able to add that at some point.

  • http://ericsuesz.com Eric Suesz

    Hi, Bill. It should work fine, but if you continue to have issues, would you mind submitting a ticket so we can take a really close look? You can do that from the Support link on your dashboard. Thanks!

    There are many new features on NING. Congratulations for all of them. But what are with the basics features which still need improvements like the event calendar http://creators.ning.com/forum/topics/the-calendar-needs-to-be or the invite page http://creators.ning.com/forum/topics/invite-page-needs – in this case please notice this video http://creators.ning.com/video/ning-flash-problem-choose which affects one issue of the invite page. Please – what about the announced improvements for the invite or share with friends page? and do you ignore that we need improvements to the event calendar? Thanks for all your good work and I hope you will not ignore these both basic topics.

    Could this app be made to work for network administrators also?

  • http://ericsuesz.com Eric Suesz

    Hi, Chris. We may include that at some point. More about that here.

  • Doug

    Hope you’ll have this for Blackberry soon!

    Please bring to other OS’s. Android and WebOS mainly please.
