Title says it all, has this been considered?

I believe that there was a discussion going on about Tapatalk sometime earlier this year. What were the conclusions, again?

I'm looking into it.

I'm checking into it.  Since we just installed new forum software, I want to keep an eye on the forum without any plugins or mods for a few weeks to make sure the environment is stable and everything is running properly.  If everything still looks good a few weeks from now, I'll check into this more deeply.  The problem with adding too many new things at once is that if we do start getting error messages, it is a lot harder to isolate the problem when there are more variables in the mix.

15 months of "looking".

How 'bout a decision and/or action?  The forum is very difficult to do on a smartphone.  Tablet is ok.

My phone isn't bad, just have to do a lot of pinch and zoom. It's not a huge deal, but a mobile site would definitely be helpful.

My only complaint about using the site on my phone/ipad is the "jump to' feature doesn't work.

It does for me. That's the only reason I use DTF on my phone. Otherwise the navigation would be impossible.

Yeah, the final year of my PhD kinda took priority. Come next month though I will dedicate some time to looking into this and a few other bits I have neglected over the last year.

There is a WAP version of the site located here: http://www.dreamtheaterforums.org/boards/index.php?wap2. Its crude, but if you are on a phone without rich browsing it should be serviceable.

Mentally, I see WAP, and pronounce the A as more of an O sound (such as wall).

Bad effort at a joke I suppose.  Carry on...

I may start using that on my Blackberry since the full version takes a while to load and horks my battery.

My shitty flip phone used the WAP version. I don't miss it at all.
