Will it work on my smartphone?
Flagster currently works on iPhone, iPod touch and Android phones.
Why can't I find it in the App Store?
Flagster is a web-based application, rather than a device-native app. Web-based apps are not distributed through the App Store; they are accessed via the built-in web browser on your device. You can still have a Flagster icon on your device's home screen, though—see the next question!
How do I get the app icon to show up on my home screen?
This depends on which type of device you have:
For iPhone or iPod touch:
Tap the send button in the bottom center of your screen. It will look like one of these:
Then press "Add to Home Screen."
For Android phones:
Click the menu button (leftmost hardware button). Tap "More." Tap "Add shortcut to Home."
Why am I not receiving the text message I requested from GetFlagster.com?
That text message is sent from a special 5-digit code, rather than a full 10-digit phone number. If you are using a free texting app (Textfree, textPlus, etc.) or a Google Voice number, or if your cellular provider blocks incoming messages from 5-digit codes, then you will be unable to receive the message. In that case, you can still use Flagster—you simply need to type this URL into your phone's web browser by hand: http://www.flagsterapp.com/landing.php
Can I run a bunch of nautical flags together to build a word (or sentence or paragraph), instead of posting a single flag?
No. The current version of Flagster supports posting one flag at a time. This approach is the best fit for the format of the Facebook news feed. It's possible that future versions of Flagster may support posting multiple flags.
