  • vBulletin iOS Mobile -- is the vBulletin app the same app that they white-label?

    Is this app the same app that they're providing sites who white label the mobile app?
    I'm only curious because I notice that their screenshots are more up-to-date on their iOS store page (such as being shot against an iPhone X device) whereas the screenshots that are generated when compiling my white-labeled version are the same as they were on the iPhone 4.

    Also the app itself seems much more 'solid'.

    Exactly the same. We actually publish it and make sure it is accepted to the App Stores before we release the version to the public. It is built using the same tools and techniques as the White Label apps you download from the Mobile Publisher.

    That is the 2.X series of app which was released for Android at the end of 2018 and for iOS in the middle of July of this year.

    You will need vBulletin 5 and iOS 9+ (iPhone 4s+) to use the new version of the app. Originally, Mobile Suite 2.0, was going to be just a facelift but during development, a lot of changes were made in order to make the software more robust and support more features from vBulletin 5. This created a longer than anticipated development cycle.

    Generally, customers should install the App on their own devices using sideloading (Android) or Testflight (iOS), so you can take your own screenshots. This will allow them to match your colors, logo, and other details that you can change in the Mobile Publisher. Emulators often work for customers as well.
