Fluid lets you create a Real Mac App (or “Fluid App”) out of any website or web application, effectively turning your favorite web apps into OS X desktop apps. The other thing about running “Elly Online” via the Fluid App icon, is that it displays full screen, without any extraneous distractions.
No. “Elly Online” is designed specifically for a desktop or laptop experience. There is lots going on in the “Elly Online“! “Elly Online” is utilizing state-of-the-art multi-media capabilities that are memory and processor intensive. We decided to disable its functioning on mobile devices due to the fact that we feel we cannot guarantee a quality user experience on most mobile devices, due to the large number of different mobile device manufacturers and models, each with different amounts of memory, processor speed and screen sizes, and differing implementations of their respective OS’s and browsers.

We have observed this behavior specifically with out of date versions of Chrome. “Elly Online” requires the latest upgrade to be able to access the state-of-the-art implementation that we have done.
Yes, “Elly Online” cached in Firefox and Chrome work great. Load the app, view it and bookmark it. And bada boom, you should be able to view it without an internet connection.

Chrome and Firefox work best. Safari is good too.
Elly works best when the browser’s cache is emptied. Also, ensure your sound is up or you have headphones on.
