Any thoughts for an EpicSki mobile browser?
Just downloaded it and tried it. It does look like a much nicer way to browse the forum.
More efficient as it requires less data than rendering full web pages as well. Don't need to keep sizing pages too.
You can view alpinezone.com as well if you are interested in the Northeast skiing forum.

I consider it a major deficiency of the Huddler platform that they don't have a mobile CSS. Right now, on my iPhone, I need to tap twice on the home page to read a thread, and half the time I end up clicking on some person's profile by accident.
As a basic approach, when the site detects a mobile browser (which is easy), drop the carousel, maybe drop the featured threads, simplify the information. Make the recent threads single-tap. After all, there's no "hover" on today's touch screen devices.
For a good example of this done right, try www.cnn.com from both a computer and a smartphone. Big difference; both usable.
