mobile-friendly changes in the works?

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 

I know this has come up in the past, but I think it's been a while, and I'm just wondering if there is any talk of making the site more friendly to the small view-port. I won't bore people with stats many probably already know, but the percentage of people who access the web mostly or only through a smartphone is larger than you might think and growing very very fast. It's OVER 50% in some demographics. So essentially you are marginalizing or losing altogether a big slice of your potential audience with a site that forces you to zoom and pan and squint constantly just to navigate and read. Also, some features, such as the post editor, just don't work well ... at least on my fairly up-to-date Android. Just wondering. Thanks in advance.

Yes! The mobile app is very close. Stay tuned...

Is it working for you? The new mobile site is supposed to be up today. I'm posting from my Droid.

Nolo, how would I get there? Should I get a notice on my droid that would redirect me to the mobile site?

Not seeing it. Looked on this page and the home page, both on the computer and my Droid. Is it supposed to be down with the links at the bottom center of the page?

Tried it on desktop. Looks okay. Now time to go get the phone. Yee ha!

I can't find the word "mobile" on the web page, so I can't see the site in my browser. The site doesn't come up when I log in with my Android; I just land on the usual home page. Looks groovy, though.

Testing. Yes. Editor appears to be much more phone friendly. I like! smile.gif (Remind me of this when i start finding bugs.)

I've been testing for a while, haven't found any significant bugs.

At least with my phone, a Droid Incredible 2 with 3G, the mobile site pages load very slowly. Tapatalk lacks character, doesn't always work smoothly, and doesn't have any wiz bang functionality, but it was like lightning to read through the forums.

My understanding is that we can't use tapatalk on Epicski anymore. Is there any way we could be able to go back to it if we want? Or us there a setting in my preferences that would speed things up?

litterbug, Tapatalk still works for me on my iPhone. Every once in a while I have to delete the forum and add it back again and log in, but it's still working.
