Mobile devices on the boards
0

I was hoping to revisit an old topic, the use of mobile devices here. I use my iPad almost entirely and there are very few differences that I notice. My IPhone on the other hand pisses me off so much that at most I might read a post, if I am desperate, on it. To honest Galad has done about as much as he could to make this site mobile friendly. He put a lot of time and money into that topic. I would still like to hear reports form you guys on what your experience has been so far.

There might be some things that could be helped now, but even if not, I would like to know the current issues so that down the road when I switch platforms I do not make a move that is not able to deal with your concerns. Not only the issues you have, but if there are certain things you currently like to do, please tell me that too so that we don't lose those features.

I do not have a timeline on any major move. I would like to get it in place before the season starts, but we will see. Either way it won't mean much as far as a sudden change or a new forum full of bugs to deal with. Before I move us to a new platform, I will have had the new home up and running while we test it out and make sure it works. Once I am happy that it is not going to irritate us, then we will switch over.

Thankfully things are running smooth here so there are no time constraints that would force a premature move. I for one don't like change, and I know most of you don't either. So I plan on closely matching the current set up, just on a platform that will allow me to better tailer the site for our needs.

I have noticed on my Android based Tablet, that this website runs best on the native Browser in Android versus uses Firefox for Android.

I have a new Microsoft Lumia phone, I will give it a try on here and let you know how it works.

I have accessed the MB through three platforms, Mac at home, PC at work, and android tablet when on the road or out on the deck or just kicking back in the easy chair.  I haven't had any real issues or problems with any of um.

I have had reports that some users could not access some features on the first page of threads. Like Quote, they could only quote posts from the second page on. Anyone else having similar issues?

Seems like I need to bring this thread back. I was informed yesterday that we were still having issues with using mobile phones on the boards. Most specifically that none of the Quote/Reply features with in an actual post work. The only option is to us the overall reply button at the bottom. I am seeing that this holds true on my IPhone, which is something new for me.

I am going to get IT to work on this but was hoping that anyone that uses a phone could just take a sec to tell me what they use and any issues that they have using their phone vs other platforms in hopes that I can get as much cleared up as possible. Please share any work arounds you might have figured out as well that might help other posters. I know that my phone works better in landscape vs portrait mod.

I am also going to look into the app TapTalk again. I know a few people have used it to access the boards on their phones in the past and said that it worked well.
