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!

I like it better than the motorcycle.com app. Looks great on my Nexus 5.

I started using a 7 inch android tablet, with my phone set up as a mobile hotspot. The view is better, but the keyboard app sucks.

Feedback- new mobile version

Personally, I like the original/old version better. I'm using the iPhone 5s, version 7.1.1, and the old/original version is far more efficient and effective to quickly "scan" the forums and feeds-- from my mobile device.

The "new version" is a step backwards for my use, with my iPhone. It seems to work as intended, it's just very slow and inefficient to navigate through forums and posts. Specifically, within a thread, the old view allowed the whole page to be viewed in one screen. This version defaulrs to supply one comment at a time, and then allow you to scroll forward or backwards through multiple/individual posts, to scan a thread-- cumbersome.

If it's not broke, don't fix it.

Can you send a screen shot of what you are seeing? I'm using an Iphone 5 and am not able to recreate those issues on my end.

Not sure. Can you try clearing your cache and cookies? Monday I should be able to try with an Iphone 6, but currently I only have an iPad and iPhone 5. Does this problem happen during Quick Reply or Advanced?
