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!

Typing from Samsung Galaxy S3 Neo, Android 4.4.2, Google Chrome. Works like a charm, so far haven't discovered bugs. Its gonna take some time to get used to it, but it looks classy.

I wanted to go back to the default skin to see how it compares with the new, enhanced one and from then on, cannot find options how to revert to enhanced mobile mode. Where should I look, help me.

Hello,

To go back to the default skin, you will need to click on the three horizontal lines in the top left corner and a slide out menu will appear. In the menu is the option to exit the mobile view.

Thanks for giving it a go!

~KM, community support

Thank you for trying it. The mobile view will automatically load the first time but once you have exited it, the desktop view should load thereafter.

Tried it on my iPhone 5S.
It was OK.
I went back to the regular version because I could not find a "new posts" feature on the mobile version.
That was a deal killer for me.

Of all the narcissists I know, I love me the most.

I couldn't find the blog with the Buyers Guides on the new version so I switched to the normal one.

Наздраве, Цветан!
