Updated Smartphone Feedback Thread

We're pleased to announce that we have launched a new smartphone view on the site, in addition to the recently added mobile view in the last upgrade. 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.

Thanks!


Hello everyone,

We’re excited to announce that additional features has been added and improvements were made to the enhanced mobile view.
Thanks to the feedback that everyone has provided, we were able to tailor the mobile view to better fit forum members’ needs and fix a few bugs along the way.

A few of the new features that were added includes:
• Completely replacing the PM system with one that better matches what members see in the desktop version.
• A pull-to-refresh functionality has been added on all appropriate pages in addition to the refresh already available in the overflow menu.
• A new scrolling feature has been added so that if the user starts scrolling the screen prior to an auto-scroll happening (like moving to a post per the current read position), the auto-scroll is cancelled so the user is not fighting with it.
• There is now a font size preview in the Font Size settings page so the members would know what to expect.
• Sticky topics can now be hidden from within the page where they are being viewed
• The vote count on poll results has been animated to count up along with the bar graph animations that were already present.

Now on to some of the fixes we that have implemented:
• After sharing a photo from the media viewer, the user will not be returned to the media viewer instead of the topic.
• PMs will now be correctly marked as viewed and word-wrapped.
• The forum will now work with iOS Safari if the user had opted to block all cookies.
• Double-tapping buttons or links will no longer cause functionality to execute twice.
• The text in the header is now re-sizing correctly when members are scrolling through the page or opening the side menu.

Please give this newly improved version of the mobile view a try and feel free to let us know what you think in the feedback thread.

**Please let us know the device, software version, and browser being used if reporting any issues.

Thank you.

iPod Format

Has the site changed the format for iPods and iPhones? Today when I turned on my iPod there was a different format for this site. I couldn't sign in and the pop up ads filled the screen. It has made my iPod useless to get on the Camaro site.

Re: iPod Format

Yes, there's a new mobile only site. There was a post a week or two ago that I happened to see announcing it. It's very different, but once I signed in, it seems to be OK on an iPhone. Not sure why you can't sign in, I think it should be somewhere in the menu on the left side.

This is the worse format I have ever seen. Coupled with the new Apple OS makes my iPod useless.

Re: Updated Smartphone Feedback Thread

This afternoon I tried to log on to the site on my iPod Touch and found the new format a nightmare.
My iPod Touch is a model MD717LL/A. OS 8.0.2(12A05)
The browser is Safari
It is working off of a home WiFi route that is working with all other sites.
It was almost impossible to log in. After I got logged in the pop-up ad quit taking up all the screen.
It said in one place it is working off of "topify" what ever that is.

It must be working better on the iPhones if you have not seen any complaints on them.

On my iPod that just tents the screen and freezes it up. I can't even Logout from that menu.

Can you reset your IPod? How old is the Ipod?

My Ipad freezes or locks up on occasion, and I reboot and then I'm fine.

I am sorry after I started this thread I was pointed to another thread. Is this what you are asking about?
