For you guys who view the forum on mobile devices, how is your experience?

Works pretty well for me. When my phone (iPhone) isn't on wifi it can be a little slow to load. Other than that it does well.

I view it 90 % of the time from a mobile device. From an android phone or ipad I have never had any issues. It is much easier to view from my phone than kf was.

I lost track of that: Are we using Tapatalk or Forumrunner? No problems on the Ipad through the browser, but if we use one of the forum programs, I would switch over.

Works fine for me. Anything in particular you're wondering about Dave?

Using a Droid X. Works absolutely fine. Loads a lot faster than KF ever did.

I was informed by the forum software folks that they just released an app that is available to purchase and upload but I'm wondering if this is necessary. I just want to make sure that the forum is mobile friendly is all.

I gotcha. Honestly as long as it works I'm good. Most of the helpers apps for forums and such dumb things down to make it easier, but they inevitably end up annoying me by oversimplifying. I'm sure others may have a different opinion.

I recently picked up a Motorola Xoom. So far no problems browsing the forums.

I'm using an Droid incredible and have no problem viewing the site. Posting can be difficult though. I sometimes lose the script field while I'm writing a post. I would buy the app to try it. If it works better I'll keep it.

sorry for bumping old thread, but i figured its better than starting a new one.
am i doing something wrong, or is Tapatalk not enabled? i can't seem to find KKF via Tapatalk iPhone app.

if Tapatalk is not supported, any chance it will be? KKF is last one i read regularly that doesn't support Tapatalk :)

I can't imagine an app would be worth it. I have never had any problems with the site when using mobile devices...

I think that Tapatalk is enabled but maybe I'm wrong. I'll look into it.

Everything works great here on multiple android devices and an iPad. The only thing I don't like when forums activate the tapatalk option is it throws a pops up notice every time you access the site from a mobile device. Maybe that can be deactivated on the back end, which I would recommend. I'm not all that familiar with vBulletin, but it's one of the best and I'd guess the option is there.

No problems on my I-phone - I wouldn't bother investing the money, I am fine with current functionality.

it's fine on a larger device like my Nook...but from the phone it could be more mobile friendly. That's only 5-10% of my usage though.

I would prefer mobile support as when I try to respond to PMs or even regular posts on my phone (HTC One X w/ Android), things can get wonky and annoying.

I'm working on a mobile app that's in the approval process now. I will keep you all updated.

iPhone use is just fine and I don't know that an app would be any improvement

I find that apps are usually better, particularly on a tablet where they can be customized. Difficultly is in getting them to a point where they work well and that usually takes a long time and a lot of iterations. Having said that, not sure if it's worth it for KKF.

Every time I have visited a forum with a mobile app, I get a prompt that says "this forum has a mobile app, would you like to download it?" So it's not like if you prefer the regular site you won't be able to access it once we have mobile support.

But you would be asked every time you visit the site. Which, IMO, is annoying as hell.

If you enable cookies and tell it no you should not presented it again on most apps.

Clicking one time extra every time you login is no where near as annoying as not being able to see what you are typing when replying or sending PMs.

I guess I don't have that problem. I have a htc dna and an iPad. Both work flawlessly. Millage and preferences vary.

PM'ing and posting on my Android based phone really sucks. Can't see what you're typing, resetting back to the beginning of your reply, etc. Unless I'm going to post one sentence, I wait until I'm home on my PC.

I hate that on my android as well, i think tapatalk would be the best fix

As a courtesy to our members that don't want to use Tapatalk, can we have the server remember their preference and not ask them every time they login from a mobile device to install the app?

That's supposed to be based on cookies. If you enable cookies, then tell it no, it should go away. If it doesn't let me know and I will contact the developer.

For some reason, yesterday, kkf is looking a lot different from the computer version when I am using my iPhone. I don't like it very much. I don't know what changed it but all the topics have lost the look and feel of the computer version for me.

I think brainsausage is having the same problem as you Brad. He emailed me yesterday with screenshots of a wonky looking forum. iphone?

Yeah, we've been wasting all of our time making Portland the best food destination on the east coast... My iphone5 is fashioned from lobster shells and driftwood, smells briny.

You really should Tom. John's come up to hang with his amazing lady, and I just had a great night drinking and talking shop with Sun(Panda) when he was up here visiting last week.

On another note, my forum interface is back to normal. Not sure if it was Austin's influence, but thanks regardless!
