    am i missing something? i figured a few years ago when i joined, that i was missing something, or there would improvements made to make the site more compatible with mobile devices...
    why is this site not compatible with tapatalk?
    why does this site lock you into mobile viewing only when on smart phone, iphone, ipad?...
    i know through searching on the topic, i am not alone. i also have found that many people are like myself- the pc/laptop is used in our offices for work based items only. when we actually have time to sit and read something that is not a proposal/contract, it's on an tablet/ipad/iphone/smartphone/anything portable... and reading the forums is usually skipped since we're not offered everything the forum has to offer.
    revenue is based on advertising. advertising rates are based on traffic/use. traffic would be increased if whomever would come to grips with these necessary changes to be made.
    more money for plowsite.com, and easier navigation throughout the forums for us. it's simple. please make it happen, or use a provider like Tapatalk.
    cheers,
    micah

    one final point,
    we all pay a great deal of money to have the portability of a mini computer in our phones, and they are so handy...
    ie- when its 4am, i've been in the truck all day/night/too long, something breaks and i'm simply too exhausted and brain dead to resolve and need some help, i reach for the phone or ipad for reference. current format prevents this.

    yes, we are still working on different features, etc. for the mobile style here on the site...also, check your settings on your mobile device because some allow you to view the site as you would on a desktop (either via IE or Firefox)

    and, as far as tapatalk, to my knowledge, we are not going to be using that but I will check again on it and let you know

    I second what the OP is saying. Very frustrating or someone like me. I pretty much do everything on my phone or iPad. I have to get to my desktop in order to post a pic or do any relevant searches. I run both my business' from portable devices. I am sure the advertisers see this. Plowsite is really loosing some major money in advertisements here. Figured it would be worked out by now. Oh well.
