    we updated the mobile version to go along with the update of the new look of the site...depending on your settings on your mobile device, you could choose to view it via the desktop version

    Do we have any new settings or things we can do differently with this updated mobile version?

    the mobile version is set up for simplicity and not all features are available as they would be the desktop version...the features should be the same as the other mobile version but I'll let you know of any updates, etc

    Wow this is horrible. The other version was a lot better. Is there any way you guys can do an update so that we can post pics without having to create a photo bucket account? That would be really cool.

    Looking at someone's posted pictures is a lot faster now.

    if there is something in particular that you do not like then please let me know...we are more then open to suggestions and "constructive" criticism but just telling us you don't like it or it stinks, etc. doesn't help with us potentially making adjustments

    It's so blocky and bla looking. It's just so square to me. Very lifeless. It is easier with the big buttons and fat thumbs that I try and use.

    The titles with longer named threads wrap into other threads and you can't tell them apart.

    I would pm you a picture but that can't happen.

    Thread topics run together in the same line. Hard to tell if theres a new post or who posted last.

    Maybe that's just my phone, idk. Way easier to navigate before.

    what type of phone are you using? I have a droid and the threads look fine on my end so far...also, there were just a few tweaks to this mobile version such as some padding added, etc. to make it easier to navigate and read, which, to me and on my mobile device, looks much better

    Same issues here as well Michael. I also have a Droid for what its worth. The only other change people really want is in regards to pic posting.

    It would be nice to be able to subscribe to a thread from this mobile version also.
