Updated Smartphone Feedback Thread

1661 Views 14 Replies 7 Participants Last post by  martin101
We're pleased to announce that we have launched a new smartphone view on the site, in addition to the recently added mobile view in the last upgrade. This version has been designed to have a cleaner look, to fit really nicely into mobile (iPhone, Android) browsers, and unlike most normal web based skins will also include features that are normally reserved for desktop or phone applications. We built this as we realize you all spend more time today on your phones on the forum than you did 2 years ago, and we want to get the mobile view to a place where you can do everything (and more!) that you can do on desktop.

A few notes as I know many of you may have questions:

* This does not replace the free or paid in-apps that you have, such as any mobile apps. This is web-only.
* This new skin will only show when you access the site from a modern (Android 4+, iPhone) phone. It will not show for older phones or for tablets, blackberries or windows phones.
* Please give us some time as we work through bugs. Give it a try, give us feedback in our mobile thread url, and give it a chance. Every change needs time to get used to!​

If you visit the site from your mobile phone, you'll get the new view automatically. You can login, post, reply, upload photos, view your private messages and more. You can also use the legacy mobile view by choosing the top left menu and Exit Enhanced Mobile Mode.

The feedback thread for any bugs, etc, please post below.

**Please let use know the device, software version, and browser being used if reporting any issues.

The update may not have hit here just yet. There are a few sites being rolled out today one by one.
Ok I see it now and it is pretty cool and works well. I like it so far a lot.

But Can we please change the header image and remove the lady....
I reported the request for the header modification to support.
We are working on making sure all the features are there. Still being tweaked.

Please note that you can go to the drop down and pick the regular old mobile site
To be clear this is optional. The drop down if anyone is confused about how to find it is in the top left, button with three lines.
