Mobile access(?)

I belong to many forums, all of which differing in aim and context, from Audi cars to photography, from audiophile interests to computer technical support (you get the idea). I most commonly access these forums via my smart phone because they have either offered a mobile format for their forum, or they have integrated their forum with the capabilities of such smart phone apps (e.g.) the app 'Tapatalk'.

As I'm sure you're aware, smart phones are now ubiquitous, and I hope you'll soon adopt a smart phone format.

TIA

Cheers from the Avalon Peninsula

Would be nice if the GSD forums would step into the 21st century a little bit with regard to this as well as finally doing away with the silly resolution requirements for photographs. I know the argument went something like "bigger photos can take people to long to download" or something similar. If we were all using 56k modems, I'd agree. But seriously now, it's 2015.

Try clearing your phone cache....
No button to get it back unfortunately...
It might pop up and ask you 'randomly' to try it again.
I would stay on the desktop website tho.

Try use the mobile version.
Let me know how it works for you please.

I cleared history and then after a few times. Going back onto site I was prompted. Thanks! (So far much easier to view in mobile )

Yep it is much easier.

Just crashed too much for me to keep with it.
Especially when I wrote long comments.

Sometimes it did not show latest replies.
Found quite a few frustrations, So I am curious how it works for you.

to be honest the mobile version sucks. it's almost impossible to scroll to the last page of a thread, the slider thing hardly ever moves. you click on things and hear the click but nothing happens. you spend 99% of your time tapping your phone like a lunatic with nothing happening. i have a brand new samsung galaxy and this is the only site that gives me these problems. to exit mobile view you have to click the 3 little horizontal bars at the top left. half the time you hear the click but nothing happens. when the options finally do come up it doesn't let me scroll down to exit mobile view or whatever it says. when i finally get that far and click exit mobile view everything freezes in the process and i have to restart my phone. when everything works finally and i'm back to the old view, after a few times logging on i'm automatically put back in mobile view and i just want to put my head through a wall.

Yep way too buggy.

Its unfortunate, because the normal website is really not designed for mobile at all.

But it is definitely much better. At least it works.
