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!

Old fogies don't like change...haha. It needs a "what's new" and "active topics" and a "like" button please.
Yes what LT said I just tried it on my I phone 6s and kinda like it could not find how to like a post and do really use the new and active post button a lot. Lol couldn't find this thread.

It's interesting to see the variety of responses to this 'mobile view'. On some sites, it's gone over extremely well....others (like here) don't seem to like it at all. I also prefer the standard browser view, but that's because it's easier for me to do Admin stuff from there. At least there's the option to 'kill' the mobile view and use the standard for those that don't like it.
