Default 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!

Yep. No tabs, so can't get to most of the site. And I can't exit it to use the old site either. So it's useless and means I can't use the forum at all on my phone.

iPhone 5s btw...

Try this, worked for me.

Go up to the button at the top left, down the bottom select exit advanced view, then click on an option (at this point you'd normally press the submit button or whatever it is and it doesn't work) press the refresh page button and get ready as an exit view bit of text pops up, quickly click on it and it lets you go back to the old view for 90 days

Just tried accessing the site on my HTC m8, polite feedback is that the site looks terrible.

Adverts plastered all over the page, unresponsive, bland looking, I'd put your efforts into something else.

I always use 'desktop view' on my smart phone browser so dont see the need for this?
