New Mobile Version of TigerDroppings Available



Ok, after some beta testing, we want to roll out our new mobile version to a wider audience. This is just our first stab at it, and we will be continuously updating it with improvements. We have a list of enhancements that we want to make in the near future.

There are actually two mobile versions of the site: one for devices with a touch screen (eg, iPhone), and one for devices without a touch screen (eg, most Blackberries). We detect what browser/operating system you are using and send you to the appropriate version. We may not have captured all of the browser/operating system combinations, so let us know if you have an issue.

I would suggest you bookmark the following link on your mobile device:

tigerdroppings.com/mobile

This is a link to the TD Mobile Home page. Right now, the only part of the site that is "mobilized" are the message boards.

Keep in mind that we are dealing with a very small screen, so we had to make considerations for horizontal spacing.

For the touch screen version, there are some shortcuts to get you to more advanced paging options within a thread. For example, if there are 10 pages in a thread, it will read "Page x of 10" in the top right of the screen. Click on "Page x of 10" and it will take you to the bottom where you can specify a page to jump to, or go to the first page, last page, etc.

Also, on the touch screen version, "Full Version" is a link that will take you to the regular PC version of that page you are on. At this time, there isn't a convenient way to get back to the mobile version other than to hit the back arrow on the browser, or use your bookmark.

Many of non-touch screen versions have even smaller screens. So, we had to limit the info that could be displayed. But we plan to tweak it to show as much as possible in the future.

Please let us know what you think. If you have any issues, it will be most helpful to know what phone and browser you are using.

Thanks.

Looks nice and clean on my blackberry tour. Well played. Much better than going to the full site on the phone.

Most of the features work for me. Haven't tried them all yet. Only complaint is that the font is huge viewed in IE, even completely zoomed out. Looks much better in Opera.
I have a Sprint Touch.

Much easier to navigate. Very nice! Good work.

eta: the post reply screen seems a bit large. Might want to zoom it out and add emoticons. That's the only problem I encountered.

I would like to see an auto refresh option for the main page of each board, no need for one within a topic. Options could be Off or 60 seconds...or just make it 60 seconds. Also a >| arrow within a thread to jump to the last page.

re: New Mobile Version of TigerDroppings Available


the screen where you post a message and the post confirmation screens are waaaayyy too big and awkward on my iphone 3g. all other pages are formatted properly just missing a few niceties like "my posts" etc.

ETA: the site looks great overall and make it much easier to browse from a mobile device. thanks for doing this; i'm continually looking for new and different ways to slack off at work and as usual tigerdroppings.com delivers.

Its great! I still wish you could see either team affiliation, a sig pic, or an avatar to make it easier to identify the poster and if you could make a "jump to last post button" that would be great as well!! Awesome job guys!
