Ap for Android

Postby beer4bill » February 29th, 2012, 9:23 am

Does anyone has a reccomendation for an Android Ap to read the forum with. I'm tired of reading the update with phone's browser.

Thanks,

In the user control panel you can turn off avatars and signatures which might make phone reading better.

The only android forum app I have experience with is tapatalk. It has a server side component which is free of charge and a phone app which is $3.

Honestly, I'm new to this whole webmaster thing, and didn't take mobile users into account whatsoever when setting up the site. I use a pc exclusively, so it didn't even enter my mind.

I'm looking into some options now.

All right, I added a mobile theme and set it up to use that theme automatically if the board detects you are using a mobile browser. I know the theme itself is working fine, but I don't have any way to test it out via a mobile device.

Can any mobile users test this out for me and let me know how it goes?
