Updated Smartphone Feedback Thread

Team, FYI, we will be putting live a new smartphone view today. It should be up by this evening.

The mobile view does not currently have any moderator level functionality, and is made so that members can post, reply, and so forth. You can exit the mobile view using the top level menu on the site and choosing the "Exit Enhanced Mobile Mode" option. Your browser will then remember not to use it. We're planning to add lots of new features to this mobile view so that you can do as much, if not more, than what you can do when at your computer.

The new view does support image uploading from your phone and is designed with a cool slider at the bottom, a breadcrumb that moves left and right, and is optimized to look really slick on mobile devices.

A few notes:

* This does not replace the free or paid in-apps that you have, such as any mobile app. 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

We'll post up a public announcement about it as well, but wanted to let you guys know about it first. We'll also create a feedback thread and we'll be watching it to make sure every bug is reviewed and addressed.

Feedback Thread: Will post once created

Thanks in advance and hope you enjoy the new feature,
Helena

Thank god there was an exit for that!!! I thought I was going to have to find a new forum!

I'm sure you guys put a lot of work into that and it is appreciated but I am not a big fan of changes, especially a 500 percent change. Big relief to see the old SP screen back on my phone!

The ads are far more obnoxious on that then the traditional style. Was quick to go back to desktop view...

No harm no foul, you took it for a spin and didn't like it you still have the regular view.

Awful. Desktop view has always been great on this forum. If it ain't broke don't fix it!

I agree with Kris. This forum has always worked well on IPhones without using a mobile view. Much preferred

Couldn't be happier with the new format on my Samsung . It's far more user friendly than the pc version . Fits the screen better in every way. Don't change a thing .

Not my cup of tea either. I'm going to revert back. Out of all the forums I have used, I always thought Spey Pages was the best and easiest to use, at least the way it was.

Hello,

What device are you using and which browser are you on when this occurs?

~KM, community support

Works fine. Not really sure how it is better than original format but I am willing to give it a try.
