Awesome idea, just tried it on my ipad and it works great. Connects well with my phone as well. Thanks!

Works quite well with jellybean 4.2 -and- iOS 6.1 iPad

A tiny phone for those teeny-tiny hands @H20shed65 of yours. BTW: that new lotion's great

I'll admit, still amazed at the number of Folks that are using phones almost
equally divided with their lap/desk puter. I doubt too many over the age of
55 will find the experience all that desirable. Even with my cheaters/readers,
the phone gives me head-aches attempting to read for long

Nice post @ChillyCat
I am not quite 55, but having Gulliver like hands and fingers I am not conducive to tiny devices, JMO.. but they are made for Lilliputens :rolleyes:

There are more privacy concerns as well

best there Chilly

I just did a test run on my mobile android phone through my wifi connection at home, i did not post or rate things etc, but i did find the interface very intuitive and quite easy to find my way about navigate etc. Though i had to install firefox on my android phone, trying to navigate the site with the default browser had me ready to pull out my hair.

Thank you drboris it is a very intuitive interface. :)

Hopefully I've fixed the scrolling issue now. Thanks for pointing that out.
I have a droid razer maxx and have been using the mobile theme on my ride home from work. Overall I really like it. My only gripe is that when scrolling down, it tends to stutter a little bit because the touch screen seems to think I'm trying to highlight something. It's not that bad but sometimes I scroll passed the sub forum I'm looking for and have to do a little back and forth. Definitely not a PR issue, but I wanted to bring it up to see if anyone else has encountered it and found a solution. Fast scrolling doesn't seem to be an issue if I want to scroll back up to the top real quick, it's only when scrolling down a little, stopping, then scrolling down some more.

How can I tell if I’m viewing it in normal or not? I have a hard time with this website on both my iPad and phone. Would it be easier to look on my desktop ?

If you see the "style chooser" box on the bottom left of the page then you are using the desktop theme. If you don't see it but see "view full site" then you are using the mobile theme.

Hello!
I was wondering why all of a sudden my screen looked different on my iPad! Thanks for the update!! I think is great for small cellphone screens but on an iPad, laptop I much prefer what I've been used to for so long now...
For a minute I got nervous & was thinking did someone break into the site to cause a bunch of problems?... So glad I saw this thread!

Thanks so much @Admin! You guys are the bestest!
Have a great day!

The new site does look very user friendly. Although I do think my older posts were culled. Oh well. Easy enough to get back to old status. Glad it’s still lively and active.

We didn't remove any posts when we changed the forum software. Good to see you back on here!

Even though I've been demoted somewhat (for lack of posting, should have read the rule book properly!) the new look is great and easy to read new threads.

Generally agree: push notifications seem to activate some kind of analytics (redirection)
Thoughts?

I don't understand what you mean here. Can you describe what happens with the push notification in more detail please? What type of device do you view the forum on?

Hi @Admin, loosely anecdotal; should have had my ducks in a row here. Will update my findings via this thread after a bit more scrutiny.
Thanks

Wondering if I should actually access the forums on my phone... I'm used to using the computer.

I've used my smartphone since i became a member of Pharmacy reviewer this new site is excellent is not just one site now or is there still a mobile and desktop as I don't know as all I see at the left bottom corner is report? The old site i mostly used the desktop site if i had time on my hands as i just found it better than the old mobile site i only used if i was in a rush and less time. So I would like to know what site am using now. Thanks
