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!

It was a little disconcerting when it popped up, but overall I like the new look. The navigating takes a little getting used to, but I think after some usage it will get easier.

I do like that you can see the thread authors, which you couldn't do from mobile before. It's sometimes easier to find threads by author as many titles are similar.

I have an iPhone 5

Great job

I like the look and absolutely love that a huge ad doesn't take over the screen before I can get to the login.

Re: Updated Smartphone Feedback Thread

I really hate it. I don't like the big pink bar, and I can only see about three posts in the "latest" view. Between the ad banner, the pink app header, and the scroll bar on the bottom, only about half the screen seems to be left in landscape mode. Not quite as bad in portrait, but then it's many more narrow lines instead of fewer wider lines.

Just don't like it at all. Haven't been online much because of that.

PBear-

If you click on the 3 pink lines in upper left corner, you can then select "Exit Enhanced mobile view" and it reverts back to the old mobile view...

My story: After a night on the town with him, wife exchanged inappropriate texts with her former boss.

Thank you PhillyGuy!!!!
Admittedly, I'm a creature of habit and don't like change, but I couldn't navigate this new thing at all. I'm back to the old view & much happier.

I do like that the new update would allow things to be done that couldn't be done on mobile before, but right now it's not worth it to me.

I haven't figured out though, how to get back to the new view from the old view, without clearing my cookies and history.

Hello,

Right now, the only way to revert back to the new view is to clear your browser history and cache. We are looking into adding a button to change the mobile views but that is a future feature.

Thank you for your inquiry!

PBear posted almost exactly what I was going to say. I like the desktop features that weren't previously available via mobile, but the new mobile interface just takes up too much real estate on a phone screen.

Something else I've noticed, registration page doesn't display all required fields on Safari for iPhone. I'd considered retiring this nick and registering a new one, as I'm something of a different person in a different place in life these days, but the registration form isn't complete.

What version of iPhone are you using and with what OS? Also in the settings (3 dots on the right) you can adjust the font and how many posts per page you see at a time, makes it a bit clearer IMO

Iphone 5S freshly updated to 8.2, but registration issue was present prior to update to 8, as well.

Selecting a post on mobile is being twitchy, too, so...new reply instead of edit.

To be more specific, the registration screen on my phone isn't offering the fields for email address, so registration can't be completed.

As for adjustments, it's not a matter of the posts per page crowding the screen, it's the necessary elements:: banner menu at the top, ad below readable area, thread navigation (which I know can be hidden, but then frequent unhides in long threads), then browser controls at the bottom. Doesn't leave a lot of room to read posts, regardless of how many are set to display in preferences.

Actually the new mobile looks like the Topify app. Didn't like that either except that the messaging was better I thought. Glad I found this thread so I could get back to the classic view. I had tried a crap load of stuff to do it prior to that.
