Default Updated Smartphone Feedback Thread

Thread Title: 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!

Do not like. At all.

There is no 'New Posts' link, navigation takes too long from topic to topic, or forum to forum.

No response after repeated selection of 'exit enhanced view'.

I do not understand why web site designers always insist new is better. To be frank, the mobile app sucks and I won't be using it if I can get my hi-jacked browser to load the original web site.

Using a samsung s4 I can only see about 3 lines of a persons post, the header and footer occupy most of the page. Very difficult to read and I can barely scroll in the tiny space, is there a way to change this?

I don't like the format either. If I wanted to view it that way I would use the PG free app, which seems slightly more user friendly.
Thank god I located the" view in other format" tab!

I liked how it looked, but I'm not as familiar as to what is under which section. I have a LG G3, and I did have some slight issues with opening up the links to expand. But I was in a shotty area also, so will give it a go tomorrow.

Don't like it - no active topics which is what I use 99% of the time and it loads very slowly unlike the original. Also every time I reload it asks permission to use my current location which is extremely annoying
