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:

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.

I have a thread on the help board looking for any suggestions for issues I'm having with the mobile site. It's always worked fine for me until this week and now, instead of the simple interface of the mobile site, I get the full site, which is a pain on a phone.

I'm on a Blackberry Storm 2 (yes, a POS, but it's a work issued phone). I haven't made any changes to the browser and I'm using the same bookmark I've always used.

Any assistance/suggestions would be appreciated.

Why not try and make an actual App for the iPhone?

Just got a new iPod Touch 4th generation, and when I rotate it into landscape mode, the forum pages are always zoomed in. I have to double-tap the screen at least once to make it zoom out and fit to page width. Portrait mode is always correctly fitted to page width. I'm not seeing this at other web sites, including CNN, SI, Yahoo, and Google mobile sites, which fit to page width as I switch between portrait and landscape modes.

Otherwise, kudos on the interface. The navigation links are well thought out, as is the inclusion of the message board list at the bottom of the pages.

Chicken - I love how the mobile site looks on my iPhone. But when my wife looks at the mobile version on her Blackberry 9700 it doesn't show up as nice as the iPhone. Is this a screen resolution issue?

Is it possible to have the same iPhone layout of the forum on other phones too? What needs to happen to get this done?
