Updated Smartphone Feedback Thread

We're pleased to announce that we have launched a new smartphone view on the site. 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!

I just wanted to post a guide on exiting the mobile view for those who prefer the normal desktop view.

To exit the mobile view, you will need to tap on the three horizontal lines located in the top left corner of the screen.



Once tapped on, a slide out menu will appear with the option to "Exit enhanced Mobile View". After that it's just a matter of tapping on it and voila! Normal desktop view.



I hope this helps and if you have any questions, feel free to post them here.

~K.M , community support

No, I don't believe so.

If the purpose of the new phone app is to simplify things why is there no "new posts" button or am I missing it?

Ok i exited the enhanced view.....now WWT only shows up in the normal browser view. I'll try the new view again when I can figure out how to get to it. It also asked if I wanted the iPhone app and when I clicked OK, it said it wasn't available..,

edit.....Oh, now I see the WWT icon on my start screen.....did it just do that?

The app is totally different than the smartphone viewer.

The app is downloaded to your phone, the viewer is not.
