Oh shoosh, loads of people post from mobile the majority of my posts are including this one.

@the OP. There is a new version of the site being worked on becausE the current is all but broken, once that's out a mobile version could be worked on, it could be a while, but considering this is A totally free website without annoying ads all over the place you should be grateful that the site is here.
The desktop version is fine on mobile,a little tricky, but not really a huge problem.

Not sure how you do it, because on my 10 inch tablet the site loads slow as f*ck.

And no, its not my internet or tablet. Its only forums using Invision Power Board

Never had any problem viewing the site on mobile devices. Loads fast and looks fine on BlackBerry OS, Android and Win8, on 3G or Wi-Fi, and even loads respectable on 2G.

Well, from my experience on an Iphone, it is a bit of a pain. You can accidentally click on the wrong section, so you constantly have to zoom in and out so you can click on the right place.

Would seem if you are among the few it must be at your end... It's your Internet or tablet that isn't up to handling the forum. cool.gif

Kinda like a person with a tooth ache who blames the food.

I often browse the forum with my Samsung Galaxy S and it works fine for me. So the problem has to be your Tablet or the internet and no, I don't have another explanation.

It works alright even on 2G. You just need to use GTANET 2k4 lite skin. wink.gif

It even works on my lower end Android very well, so that's odd.

Edit: This guy looks like a bot?

I imagine it'd be the same as most mobile sites.

Apparently the iPhone app 'Dolphin' is the best way to view the site on an iPhone, it goes alright for me smile.gif
