Updated Smartphone Feedback Thread

Thread Title: 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!

What is it about the new format you don't like? Also if you go to the top left there are three white bars that open a menu to exit the enhanced mobile view.

I honestly didnt like it at all. In fact I hate just about any site in mobile format. It just felt clunky to me. I downloaded a app called Chrome UA Switcher. The Chrome browser would default to mobile view everytime I went to the site. This app can switch most sites to desktop view permenently. So now when I go to the site I get the desktop view. I have a Samsung Note 2 and with its screen size I see no need for any mobile view. Just my 2 cents.

Toggle switch back and forth?

I like it, but I also would like to be able to switch back and forth when I want to.

I was reading some posts that had pictures and things in 'mobile view', and I wanted to compare how they looked in 'normal view'. So I went to exit 'mobile view', but was surprised when I had to give a reason why I was exiting... And surprised that one of the reasons was not, "I like to switch between both views."

Is there a way to easily switch back and forth? Once I had exited 'mobile view', I then had to clear my browsing data in Chrome, in order to get it to go back to 'mobile view'.

Thanks,
Jim

Thanks for the feedback. right now, this is the only option but I'll let the techs know about this and see if they can do anything about it.
