Thanks for the suggestion, however it's been recommended plenty of times in the past. Currently HTS is going through some pretty staggering backend and front-end changes, so it really wouldn't be all that practical or viable to produce a mobile application concurrently. It's definitely in the plans for the future, though.

Don't know much, just asking out of curiosity, but how would one go about making an app for HTS with the missions that to the best of my knowledge (which isn't really much) requires messing with the source code and JS or would that part be skipped completely?
Just my 2 cent.

Well, theoretically you could create a code framework or work like a tutorial. I think this suggestion died a few months ago, so this could be seen as a necro.

:oops: Didn't know.
If the idea died, Ignore my post, lock the thread and move on. Because raising a necro thread was not my intention.

Easiest to avoid that: check last post and check last login of OP. Both will get you an indication of whether replying could be beneficial to anyone. Then there are threads that are designed to be forever necro'ed because of the type of information. It's a gray area :)

Before the thread is again left to die, I just want to add that I still plan to do this :lol:
I'm taking a mobile dev class this semester as I planned in an earlier post I made about this topic and will look into the practicality of implementing the forums on a mobile client. Missions are likely off limits though.

I just thought of something, why not create mobile-specific missions? It could be like phonephreaking, but different. There might be some things that only mobile phones can do that can be fun to hack... :D

Do you mean users exploiting their own devices? or using phones to exploit remote servers?
I've pretty much gathered that mobile devices are thin clients for all intents and purposes. There isn't really anything that a mobile can do that a normal computer can't.
For the former. I havn't done any research into mobile vulnerabilities. We could probably do things like spoof geolocation stuff like semi reverse engineer applications. I have a feeling that beyond messing with the API, there isn't a huge amount to do

Speaking of geolocation hacking... Boom http://stumay.net/projects/geolocation_mission/ spoof your location as the north pole. I havn't tried to complete this though, I have no idea how hard it is.

I know that using stronger GPS pings you can move someones signal without them being able to stop it, once you get far away. You'd need to block the signal of the false GPS to prevent that from happening. And in regards to the differences: a cellphone has a gyroscope which can be used to get key presses, GPS (spoofing), Bluetooth (wireless hacking, not all desktops have that), a camera (don't know how that could be useful). I would agree it's not easy to develop something fun from it, but it might be possible.
