Post Read forums on Smartphones (iPhone e.g.)
Hi all, especially mods!

I was wondering if some of you have smartphones, and if you also have some trouble reading forums through the webbrowsers supplied on the phone?

Recently I came across an app that claims to make this much much easier, but I haven't tested it, since it needs activation from the mod.
Now I don't know if this is possible, and if it's usefull, but I leave that up to the people who run the forum.
The app is Tapatalk (http://www.tapatalk.com/) and from what I can see it's perfectly safe to use, and the reviews are very good!

Would this be an idea to activate?

Kind regards,
Remko.

We'll look into this and, if the app can be enabled on the forum with our existing expertise, i.e., without having to pay for tech support, we'll consider doing it.

I have an iPhone and I don't have problems viewing the forum from it - except for the problems caused by my bad eyesight and the small screen :wink: .

Hi David,

Just wondering if you looked into this yet, and what you found. Will you now consider doing it?

Thanks

Jeff

I didn't get very far with this last time: everything I looked at cost money that we don't have or required reconfiguring the board. Then I received this e-mail from our hosts yesterday:

Quote:
Now, you can make your forum automatically detect whether you are accessing it from a PC or mobile device and depending on that it diplay the mobile compatible style that make it very easy and fast to surf the forum.

We are happy to provide you with paid help in that part, just reply to that email if you are interested.


I shall follow this up.

Indeed that looks like a better solution I guess..

Kind regards,
