    iPhone support

    Discussion in 'Support & Feedback' started by adamcroft, Mar 9, 2011.

    Is this forum linked to any iPhone apps such as Forum Runner? Would be handy to know before I buy an app :)

    Do you mean does it support moble devices? Some websites, like Xat, do. I'm not sure if this one does though.

    if you use the opera mini browser (free) the forum should display more-or-less correctly.

    It displays perfectly on the iPhone, but needs a lot of zooming and scrolling. I wondered if the forum supported apps which display the forum pages in a way which is more accessible.

    To the best of my knowledge, there is currently no special provision for smartphones (or less intelligent phones) on this site. Sorry.

    Opera Mini displayed things fine on my old Sony Erickson 810i with an 2" screen. Try it out, you will probably love it.

    I may be able to add a more simple style for mobile viewing. It wouldn't be a full-fledged app, but it would aid in mobile viewing.

    Is there more interest in this? How many of you would actually use it?

    I can look the site up just fine on my iphone, and would prefer zooming and scrolling than having an over-simplified version. I really dislike when sites automatically change to a mobile device mode when you go to them on your mobile. It is far too often I cannot do what I need to do from those lesser-models.

    So if you make one of these, I'd love to have it made as an application rather than a revision of the site for smartphones. That way, those who want the full version can still have it, and those that want simpler can have that too. My two cents! :)

    I enjoy being able to look things over from work, on my break. Makes the day a little less mundane.
