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!

So for those who didn't want to pay for tapatalk, sounds like this would work out.

This one is browser based rather than an app you will need to download and install. Its not live just this moment, we are rolling out site by site and it will hit sybermoms.com shortly. Give it s go on your phone and let us know what you think of it.

I had it for a few minutes and didn't love it. It's way too compartmentmentalised and shows too much and too little. I purposely use my phone browser for everything including facebook on my phone so it will look the same as on my computer.

I want to see the whole list of threads not four threads with almost the entire first post showing.

I agree, don't like this at all. Is like the option to change to the desktop version.

To access the desktop version you can look to the top left for the box with three horizontal lines. This will open a menu with desktop view on the list.
