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.

Re: Updated Smartphone Feedback Thread

Samsung Galaxy S6 user here... it's working great, including the images on the posts. Interface navigation & performance also good, I like the lightweight layout.

My only criticism is this scandalous #00FF00 green bar at the top... a more discreet color would fit better... maybe using the theme of the desktop version, with a small Jemsite green/yellow pyramid logo at the top left corner.

Re: Updated Smartphone Feedback Thread

I'm rubbish at smartphones, but trying it yesterday on my iPhone 5s I couldn't get the "pinch to zoom" feature to work, so the buttons were so small I couldn't accurately click links.

I'm still learning about browsing on a phone though so it might be me rather than the code.

Re: Updated Smartphone Feedback Thread

We can look into getting the colour turned down a bit. Using the full site template sounds like a good plan. Anyone else want to weigh in before we make the change?

jono, the mobile view doesn't support zooming in. The Buttons shouldn't be that small though. Can you post a screenshot of the ones you are having trouble with?
