    Exclamation NEW WAYALIFE Web App - NOW AVAILABLE

    To all the members of WAYALIFE, Cindy and I would like to apologize for the new App changes that are coming your way. They are by no means something we wanted to do but unfortunately, the company who made what we have now will no longer be supporting it. In fact, they are now asking us to relinquish all control to them and tolerate changes that include annoying new ads or keep paying them anyway and deal with a growing number of bugs and security issues that will never be addressed. To make matters worse, we've attempted to have a new app developed but found that Apple will NOT approve it due to recent changes in their rules. Even though all we want to do is replace what we have, Apple is telling us that our new app would be "too similar" to other apps that already exist and this is something they are trying to limit. Needless to say, our options are few and until or unless we can come up with a better solution, you will see changes on our app. There is a chance we may revert back to a really old app that came with our forum software but it has a host of problems all its own.

    With all that said, Cindy and I have developed a new web app that'll give you an alternative way to access WAYALIFE on a mobile device. Essentially, it's a refined mobile site and one that utilizes Safari or Chrome and the following are instructions on how you can create a "web app" button on your iPhone, iPad or Android device.. Once set up, you will have a button on your home screen and it should look and feel just like a regular app. I will be the first to say that it isn't perfect but it is at least stable and it does have a few features that are in my opinion, nice to have. I should note that we are continuing to work on updates to improve what we can and we'll be sure to get them up as soon as possible.

    How to Create a WAYALIFE Web App Icon on your iPhone or iPad's home screen:
    1. Open Safari.


    2. Go to www.wayalife.com


    3. Tap the "Share Button" on the bar at the bottom of the screen.


    4. Scroll through the options until you find the "Add to Home Screen" button and tap it.


    5. Tap the "Add" link on top corner.


    6. That's it. You now have a shortcut to the WAYALIFE Web App on your iPhone's home screen.



    Using the WAYALIFE Web App
    One of the cool things about the new WAYALIFE Web App is that it's got an easier to use "menu" and easier to find "search". The menu is shown as the 9 square boxes and the obviously, the search is the magnifying glass.


    The menu will take you to things like the "What's New" link.


    Another cool aspect of the web app, at least on an iPhone is that you can just swipe to go back a page.



    Please let me know if you have any questions.

    I should note that for those of you who've been using the full site on your mobile device, you may not see the WAYALIFE mobile site. If this is the case for you, simply scroll down to the bottom of your screen and you should see a drop down box. Change the style to "WAL 2017 Mobile" and you should be good to go.

    The whole thing totally sucks. You have no idea how much time and money we've spent trying to make things work only to find out it was all for not. I have been a long time Apple supporter but this whole experience has pissed me off so much that I am now considering the use of other products.

    Not only do you have to be Jeep Guru's you have to be tech guru's also. Small adjustement but the payoff is immense. Thanks for the update and for all the headaches you guys have to go through to provide this site to us.

    Hope I can figure this out or I will be having some serious withdrawals. Thank you for letting us know. Is this something we need to do ASAP? Delete the app and do this?

    Edit: not sure why it quoted you

    It's just nuts! No matter how much we try or are even willing to throw money at a problem, we always and still at the mercy of companies like Apple.

    As of now, the app you have will still be the same, or relatively so. It'll just have an annoying ad at the beginning and maybe others as well. There is no need to delete what you have and the new web app we're offering is just an alternative to the app you got on iTunes. We just wanted to make sure you had another option just in case the changes were too much to bear or if we had to change things significantly.

    So this is an Apple product issue? Sorry just trying to understand. Will you continue to have an app for androids?

About us
“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
