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.

A little more info to help you navigate the new view.

The Hamburger Button - This will give you active topics as well as an option to exit mobile if you prefer the desktop view.

<- Look for this guy (top right). They call this the over flow button. You can use this to find "Settings".


Settings

  • Loading Behavior -> Oldest First/Newest First
  • Font Size -> small - normal - large - huge
  • Items Per Page -> 10/20/50
  • Theme -> Light/Dark
  • Page Navigation Mode - Slide/Direct
  • Auto Hide Page navigation ->On/Off
  • Show Attachment previews ->On/Off
  • Hide Sticky Topics. -> On/Off

I use sony xperia z2

Hello.
Nice try but something needs to do before this will be a better than normal view.

I noticed that there were so many commercials that it was difficult to navigate.
I will try this new feature more than once to support your valuable work. Currently i can say that anyhow it felt a bit faster than normal way. I live in denmark....

Thanks for working on this!

I can read on my iPhone but why are there ads across the bottom 1/3 of the screen on mobile when there are none here?

Also, I don't see a way to reply at the bottom of the thread given all the advertising.

Are you logged in when you see the ads?

Can you please take a screenshot of the ads that you are seeing and if possible, copy the URL and we'll get the ad team to look into it.

Here's my screen - three ads on the page - a smaller one at the top, a smaller one in the footer and a large one at the bottom.

This is in a logged-in state.

Between the header image and ads, the mobile site is really cluttered with 'chrome' that impedes the experience.

Tapatalk is the better experience for me on mobile at this point.

For me, in this page, super atv commercial is too wide. I can see only call . Means that i dont see the word "today"

In bottom part i can see local finnish commercial witch is two times too wide. I can see only half of it

Small testing and for me it looks that there is something wrong with landscape , portrait setting. In landscape mode superatv is in the middle. That fits now ok.

I will continue this investigation later today

Those ads are non removable I'm afraid. Have to put them somewhere.
