<SOLVED> View forum in a mobile format

Post by Linny » Tue Aug 25, 2015 5:45 pm

Is there a way to view these forums in a mobile format? It is a bit awkward viewing this on a cell phone like I am now.

Alternatively you can use a browser with 'Fit to width' feature, like UC Browser on Android. In fact it works great on this forum.

I just logged into the forums on an Android phone (Droid Charge), and it worked just fine for me. I use the Opera browser on my phone; I like it better than other browsers.

Android users can also install Tapatalk to view the forums. It works decently well on my tablet, but the interface isn't as intuitive as it could be.

I use an older version of Tapatalk on my Android phone from before a lot of the changes. I see the newest version at least allows you to browse the forums without having to deal with a lot of menus

I opted to go with Opera. There seem to be security issues with UC Browser. (Google "Privacy and Security Issues with UC Browser - The Citizen Lab"). Tapatalk looks like a social media thing. These forums are about the closest thing to social media that I get involved in.
