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!

Nice look on mobile side. Going to take a little getting use to. Not as easy to scan thru the lists

I'm just use to seeing the list of topics that can be easily browsed by scrolling down and quick scanning by eye to choose which one I want to actually read more on. The new format actually posts the OP text with each topic making it a little harder to do a quick view. Like many things, its a change, and will just take some time to get use to on the mobile platform use. Over all a nice design change

Maybe I'm just set in my ways but I don't like most mobile websites and I don't like them being served automatically. Who moved my cheese?

Writing this from the desktop site version on my Galaxy S5....

Doesn't work at all on my iPhone either. The desktop site worked great. With the new site the text is jumbled, and the menus are unusable.

The add at the bottom of the screen covers my ability to close my browser on my iPhone 5S. Why do we need two adds running, one on top and on bottom?
