Updated Smartphone Feedback Thread

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.

Thanks!

UPDATE BELOW*

How does it work? Is there like a button to click or what? I quit attempting to access this forum via phone b/c it's so cluttered and tiny but I can find nothing to convert the view to something more compatible to read on my phone.

Now, before you go all technological on me, understand that many of us are not techno-geeks. In fact, most of what the OP typed may as well in Russian. All I know is I have an Android, ver 4.4, and I do not "get the new view automatically". I get the same old teeny view cluttered with advertising crap that slows my phone to a crawl, even with wifi usage.

I closed the browser tab I was using earlier and started a new one going to the site it should just recognize your on a mobile device and use the mobile code from there.

Sure would be nice to have a way to get the ad's off of this...

They eat up the functionality of the interface and slow things down considerably - I get that it is a way for generating revenue - maybe if you made a $.99 cent contribution from forum members for an AD -Less scenario that would be pretty cool and perhaps worth it - for me it would be....

I tried again. Cleared all browsing history, opened new tab. Nothing new, same old teeny view. If I make the font big enough to read (even with my glasses!) then I can't see an entire sentence without scrolling heavily side to side. I may be wrong but IMO this is not a "mobile device" view. It looks exactly like this site on a laptop except as mentioned it crawls b/c of the ads. IMHO it's frustrating and useless.

+1. On my 4-core Samsung Note 2, it's pretty slow too. I like the look, but it's much slower than before.
