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!

Is there a URLS change to get this? I'm seeing same site on my iPhone 5S (latest iOS and Safari). I may have opted out of mobile view at some point inadvertently.

Tried it using 'Private Mode' and still same as desktop version.

Is there a way to add a new posts button to the drop down?

That's the most frequent button in the banner I use. Regardless of the make or type, I try to at least scan them all.

MTD....2 stage(modern 8.5 HP) not my favorite
Honda HS622 TA-B - acquired at an auction- nice machine for it's size.
Toro S-140- Picked it up on trash day... it runs, sort of.
Yamaha YS 240 TB "Ricky" latest Craigslist find- on the bench now.

I use SwiftKey and when typing a response with the new mobile version it will add double spaces randomly and delete spaces randomly.

iPhone 6 IOS 8.1.2 mobile version slow and clunky when you try to any touch commands.
I generally don't like mobile sites. This is no exception since you can't expand (zoom in).
At least I found the full site and I'm happy.

I have a note 4, mobile site is slow, desktop site is quick. I would prefer to use a sleek mobile site, but I settle on using the desktop site. Can you let us know when you make changes? Otherwise a lot of us would never return to the mobile site unless we knew that it may have been changed for the better.
