Mark’s Daily Apple iPhone App Now Available

By Mark Sisson
91 Comments

Just a quick announcement before today’s regularly scheduled blog post… Mark’s Daily Apple now has an iPhone app! Mark’s Daily Apple blog posts, YouTube videos and Twitter tweets are all packed into this app.

This app also has a geo-tagged “ChatWall” feature that allows users to communicate with other users in their area. Looking for some Ultimate Frisbee partners or planning a Primal dinner party meet-up? Throw up a comment on the ChatWall and connect with Groks in your own hometown.

This app (just like the Android version) is free. You can learn more here.

Here are few screenshots from the app.

    1. Seconded! I would think porting to WebOS shouldn’t be too big a project if there is already an Android version…

  1. Got it, PB is working for me, have the book, cook book in the mail, awesome stuff!

      1. i’ve been having a rough time with the android app… is there one that’s really only a bookmark to the website that happens to crash all the time now, and another one that works?

      2. Did the android app get removed from the market? I can’t find it anywhere

      3. Looks like the Android app is no longer available on the Market. Any chance of it coming back? Thanks!

      4. Where is the android app located? It’s not available on android market.

      1. I’ve restarted and reinstalled more than once. I’ll play with it some more when I get home. I’m on iPhone 4 if that helps.

        Great to see an app, though. What’s a guy gotta do for a search function?

        Thanks for all you do, Mark.

  2. Thanks so much, Mark! I’ve been looking forward to this for a while now! πŸ™‚

    1. Works with iPad also. Installed on both my iPhone and iPad. Thanks, Mark!

      1. It does, like all other iPhone apps. But, it would be nice to have a version specifically designed for large iPad screen.

  3. Nice app. I’m not seeing a way to search blog posts in the MDA section. This would be pretty helpful, as well as the various archive listings you have on the main site.

  4. About time. I’ve been waiting on this for a while. Now I can get my fix anywhere.

  5. Is anyone else having problems with the font size? It is so large that I have to constantly scroll side to side as well as top to bottom to read. That is my only complaint and I really DO like having this on my iPhone and iPad. Am I missing a fix? I have tried to pinch the size and have looked for a font size adjuster. Any help would be appreciated.

    1. I had the same problem, on an iPhone 3gs running iOS 4. I also found trying to follow external links pretty frustrating — clicking one always seemed to launch an extremely limited browser with none of the standard scrolling/scaling features.

      I gave up using the app, at least till the next version comes out. (sigh)

  6. Downloaded and installed! Thanks for the app. No crashes so far and font size seems fine to me…no scrolling left to right.

  7. Installed! This made my day! Now whenever I talk about primal and all the awesomeness that is Mark’s Daily Apple I can show them immediately! Thanks for making it free Mark! πŸ™‚

    1. Yes. 2nd agree. Mark, please make one for the Blackberry πŸ˜€

  8. crashing for me unfortunately…clicked ok to Allow it to use the GPS and it flashes the startup screen and then closes the app…

  9. Alright! Just in time for my new iPhone 4. The week keeps looking up.

  10. Fantastic work Mark, downloaded it from the UK app store and it works great!

  11. Mark,
    This is awesome! I have been addicted to your blog since I found it. By the way, great book also! I got it on my kindle a few weeks ago. Don’t you just love technology?
    Kelly

  12. Any way to get the forums or user inputs made availble on the app?

  13. This is way too awesome. The iPhone and iPad has been in the back of my mind for a while now. As soon as i have the funds I am getting either or… maybe both eventually.

    My first app will be….

    Mark’s Daily Apple. Thanks for making it for free Mark. You are the best!

  14. Nice app but crashes a LOT. I have restarted a bunch of times which seems to help for a bit then the crashing starts again.

  15. Downloaded it to my ipod touch. Awesome. Any chance of being able to bring up recipes in the app for shopping and cooking? Is it just me or is a twitter account required to post comments on the app? Not a deal breaker I just couldn’t see anyway to post otherwise.

  16. Love the app. Working smoothly for me. Only comment is the same as the font size issue mentioned above. Also if it could change orientation when you turn the device that would be awesome. Please keep that in mind for future updates.

  17. Love the app!! DL’d it for my iPhone & iPad! The only issue is the font size; it is HUGE! You have to scroll side to side (even on the iPad) to read anything!
    Can’t wait to see the results in 1 month from this change in lifestyle.
    THANKS Mark!!

  18. I was looking for the android app, but can’t find it anywhere. Has it been discontinued/pulled??

  19. Crashed for me multiple times with IOS 4 – never got past the front screen – already deleted it πŸ™

    1. Hmm, I do not see the daily apple app, just the forum app. Are they the same? I have the iPhone 5

  20. the main tableview that the app defaults to after the launch image shows does not seem to work in iOS4. πŸ™

  21. Mark said closer to the top that an Android app is already out, but I can’t find a link for it, nor can I find it in the Android market. Any help?

    1. At least I am not the only one! I searched for it using every term I could think of…no apps found πŸ™

  22. Please update the iPhone app to allow both portrait and landscape view orientation. Reading blog posts in portrait is not too kind on the eyes.

  23. whats the name of the droid app. i cant find itin the market

  24. Apparently the Droid version is named “Use your browser if you aren’t an Apple disciple”

    πŸ™

  25. What’s the connection between the Primal Blueprint and Ultimate Frisbee. Everywhere I go on this site and in Mark’s books, I see continual references to Ultimate.

    I don’t play ultimate. I don’t enjoy it. I have no intention of taking it up. It’s not that I don’t enjoy playing other games and sports — that are more suited to my body, my social connections and my climate, but just not this particular play. The constant references to Ultimate seems like a cult and, in fact, turned me off from attending the BP three-day event because the implication is that if I don’t want to play Ultimate, I would be judged as not fully embracing the experience.

    Please explain the constant references to Ultimate.

  26. What happened to the Android App? I cannot find it. I found the link on this site to Androlib and it had a barcode, but when I scanned it, it said it couldn’t be found. Searched around on Google for it, and found another Android Market site that said it is no longer available on the market. Will it be back?

  27. I was wondering the same thing about the Android app… I can’t find it, either. Will it be back?

  28. I got the iTouch app. It normally works, sometimes crashes after the first screen, not sure if that’s down to server load.

    I agree with a comment above that asked for landscape mode!!!

  29. Have you read the reviews of the app? I was all excited to get this until I read them. πŸ™

  30. I can’t find this on the Android market.. is there a specific title it’s under? Thanks so much!!

  31. Hey, Do you think you will release an Android compatible version of the App? I would love to have it but I don’t have an iphone.

  32. what up with the andriod! HTC baby all the way can we get some LOVE!?

  33. I’m looking for the Android app as well; is it in the Amazon droid market, or in another droid market?

  34. Where is the Droid version? Can’t find on market, looks like is not available anymore…

  35. The Android app is called “Primal Feed” and draws from several blogs, including MDA. Search for Mark’s Daily Apple in the Market and you will find it. πŸ™‚

  36. Is the app still available? I had it and it stopped working so I deleted it so I can download it again but can’t even find it in the app store anymore. πŸ™

  37. I’m not able to use the app because it keeps crashing, and I can’t find it in the app store to submit a report. Are you still supporting the MDA iPhone app, or has it be scrapped?

  38. Is this app still available? I have an iPhone 4S but can’t find it in the App Store. The link in the article says its not available in us stores.

  39. Vote for Windows Phone app seconded!!!

    Us WP individuals need our daily apple too πŸ™‚

  40. I cannot find this app! It is just called Mark’s Daily Apple?

  41. Hmm, I only see the forum app and not the Mark’s Daily Apple app.
