Mobile devices and the board

Post by MikeUMA » Wed Oct 28, 2009 8:44 pm

Anybody use a Blackberry to use the board? Just wondering how it goes on those.

I'm posting this with an iPhone, with no trouble.

I have not posted on the board but I've answered a PM with a Blackberry Tour and it worked just fine.

I've posted on this and similar boards with a Blackberry Storm. No issues.

No dice from my Blackberry Curve. Page loads, but I am unable to click the links for some reason.

I can't click on anything on the home page.

I bookmarked the log in page and the forum page in the browser of my Blackberry 8800 and they allow me to do everything on the site.

I think that I got to the two pages that are bookmarked by refreshing once I got to the home page and then clicking on anything to get past that page.

the other thing that you can do is type the url for the log in or forum page into your browser and then bookmark that page when it comes up.

My Blackberry tour works fine on the site. Plan on posting updates from the game on Saturday!

Works fine on the iPhone - a less cluttered/more mobile-friendly site would be awesome someday, but as long as it's "on", that's all that matters to me! :)

After a year or so of members of my forum asking for it, I finally took the 30 seconds to install Tapatalk ( http://www.tapatalk.com/) on my forum. Now I find myself on my own forum via the iphone more than I am on a computer.

Might be something worth looking into, Mike, as it's free to install on a forum and very easy. For anyone using Tapatalk on their mobile phones, it's a true mobile interface. Best part as a user, it carries over to any forum using tapatalk. I find that it's very common for forums to use it...found both FCS sites use it, CAAzone, etc. Also has a nice Chrome extension that notifies people of inbox messages, new posts, etc (if they opt for it).
