Yes there is a mobile version of the site, but it is slow and inefficient. I suggest developing a gta forums app for the App Store. It would be faster, snappier and an overall better layout. Anyone agree???

The mobile version is good enough. It has the same speed as the Full Version. I suggest you check on your speed. Also, a Mobile App isn't the need of hour. However, there was a topic, previously posted by Tsuroki, regarding Tapatalk integration. I think nothing was done about it due to people's lack on interest.

If you think using the mobile version of the site is slow, how would an app, that has to pull site data and convert it into whatever format the app uses, be any faster?

The mobile version of the board works great for me. If you are experiencing issues with it, you may need to close apps on your device. Also try accessing from Wi-fi if you typically use 3G/4G, and vice versa. May help to isolate where the delay is coming from.

I wouldn't be opposed to an App. But considering that the mobile version seems to work perfectly fine then I don't see a reason for it right now. And also, What is tapatalk integration?

Tapatalk is a forum reading/posting app that a lot of sites use. I think our mobile site works great, and don't personally see a need for Tapatalk.

Tapatalk would just be lighter on certain devices and give you notifications and a better organisation I guess. But the mobile site is amazing and it does everything you can do on the normal one basically.

^ Except being able to report posts. Other than that it's snappy, it works great and I see absolutely zero need for the use of someone to code an app for this website.

Aye, I was going to say this. Is there any way to implement the report feature on the mobile version?

If it's slow then it must be your internet connection or ISP. My tablet is slow for the site because the thing was poorly optimized when it was created, that's why I rarely use tablets, i'll just stick to the normal site on my computer.

I am experiencing a problem in having mobile version on Windows Phone (Lumia 525) browsers, namely, UC Browser and IE.

 

The site instantly opens up in the mobile version of Nokia Xpress browser, only the other two browsers never load the mobile version.I've checked every setting and still the site opens in full version plus there's no mention for mobile version of the home page as well to click.

 

Any assistance would be extremely helpful.

 

Thanks

^ Have you ever tried using the Opera Mini browser? Works perfectly and it's free to download. The link to the mobile site is always there.

I'm using Blackberry at the moment and the UC Browser is an absolute mess on my phone, so I'm either using Opera Mini or my phone's default browser.

I like it too, but Opera isn't available for Windows Phone :(

It will come soon, but for now it's not possible to use Opera Mini.

 

I uninstalled UC and using Nokia Xpress Browser. It works perfectly.
