Whilst I know you tried out a plugin for the blog for mobile browsers which personally seemed unnecessary with todays smart phones and data plans one for the forum could be useful. Have you considered supporting something such as the tapatalk app http://www.tapatalk.com? As a bonus it's currently available for free from the getjar market gold apps promotions http://m.getjar.com. I'm logging in from my Android SGS2 but I believe it's also available on iOS and Blackberry.

To be honest, on the iPhone I don't have any issues with logging in or posting on the site.

As demonstrated from the fact that I posted it from my excellent Galaxy S2 (people still buy iPhones Kaje, how quaint ;) ) I can use the forum quite happily it just involves a bit more scrolling and zooming in/out, tapatalk eliminates that aspect.


BTW I thought you'd also gone Android Russ. After the disaster that was my Nokia N97, I'll avoid them like the plague from now on. It will very likely have been my first and last ever Nokia phone and mine was one of those that didn't have as many problems as most. Couldn't wait for that contract to finish.

I've had my Nokia for over 12 months mate. It hasn't been perfect, but it does a good enough job. Kev - sort the comments tick and it will be perfect :lol

To be fair, Android is the best way of linking business & personal in one device & Blackberry is the the business only option.

I'm in love with my iPhone. I used to think it was all just a fad, used to say they were crap, used to say they were the 'idiots choice'.

And then I bought one. And now I love them. I will only have another make of phone when Apple decide to stop making them. Simple as that! :bow

The thing is, if you don't have an iPhone 4 - you don't have an iPhone 4. :up

Me either. And I'm coping very well. I don't feel the need to get it out of my pocket every 30 seconds and pretend to scroll and look like I'm doing something important just because I want someone to see me with an iphone. I don't need to have an app to do absolutely everything for me. I don't need replace the word mobile with 'Iphone'. I'm sure they're a fantastic product but I cna't stand the people that will go and wank thousands of pounds on it just because it's the new device.

And with that being said, I'm going to play MW3 now because it came out yesterday and I bought it the second KMart opened because the CoD series is a progressive series and each update of the game isn't merely a rehash of the old one with one or two new features to make stupid people spend money on it by claiming that it's new and innovative...

I did the first 7% of campaign yesterday and then jumped into multiplayer. I'm off work today sick so may get a bit more done if I'm not asleep :(

Hey Richard, I'm an Android >> iPhone kinda guy, so how much do you pay for your SGS2? (PM if necessary :) )

I'm kind of reluctant to give up my 300mins/3000 texts and 1Gb data for £10 a month, but it's a SIM-only deal, and my Orange San-Francisco (modded to 3 network) phone is a bit dull and keeps crashing. I'd love a SGS2, but the cheapest I can find is £27pm which is a big leap. I'm not a geek, I use my mobile as a phone, and only need t'internet when I'm bored or need info there and then. Better value seems to be the Experia Arc, nice phone but crap battery life? I can't be bothered to charge my phone all night every night.

Kev - can you get me a free SGS2?? :tap

I've downloaded the plug in that Rich suggested and will install it during my maintenance period.

May as well give it a go.
