Default Updated Smartphone Feedback Thread

We're pleased to announce that we have launched a new smartphone view on the site. 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!

Does this get rid of the terrible pop-over ads that made browsing from a mobile device really painful?

Those should go away when you log in, do they not?

I don't ever log in from mobile so I can't answer that, but it shouldn't matter; do you really want unregistered or logged out users to have such a negative experience when visiting the site?

The next time you see one of the pop ups on a the mobile device can you grab the URL of the ad and a screenshot of it and post it here. We do not run pop ups ads on our site and can get it blocked.

I pretty much exclusively use the mobile sight, I don't like the new set up so far, I feel like I'm missing posts, it doesn't let me swap to desktop view if wanted, there are ads at the bottom, it seems slower. I guess I'll see if there's an app. The only plus of the new sight is aesthetically it's better.

I use the auto guide app. It's pretty good.

If you tap the three white lines on the top left you'll get an option to exit out of the mobile view.
