I'm looking for a link to MWO's mobile site or a mobile app so I can post/read on my phone. Is either option available?

When I had it on an iPod some time ago, there was a mobile option in the browser in the lower left corner, I think. I found it really hard to use, though, and thought the regular website was easier. A well-designed app would be nice!

Thanks, NS. I used it for awhile but can't find the URL anymore. I like the regular site on my Tab but on this phone the regular site is hard to use. :)

Ginger, here is the url, if you open it on your smartphone, it should take you to the mobile site, then just add it to your homescreen.

That's the URL I use on my smartphone but it doesn't translate to a mobile site. :( I'm using Google Chrome on an Android.

So if you get to the community page, then save it to your homescreen, the next time you click on it doesn't take you to the mobile site, or the option of mobile or desktop?

Me again Ginger, just found this online

Newer Android devices with Chrome installed as the default browser have an easy work-around. Inside Chrome, just tap the “…” button in the top right of the browser and select “Request Desktop Site.”

Maybe it also gives you the option to request mobile site?

ABC, I tried both but it's still desktop view. The font is about a 4. Lol

Texting my BIL, IT person, he says it may not be possible, depends on how the site server was configured..Zack would know, but it seems like he pulled a vanishing act lol

Thanks, Cowboy. I wonder if he'd respond to a PM. This will be more and more important to me as travel season kicks off. Two giant bass and one big trout lost their battle today ;o)

Do you know Zack's login name?

I found where you can change it to mobile option. The blue bar near the bottom of the page there's a drop down that says "fluid - morbid blue" if you click on that, you can change it to mobile light. The colors are terrible though and difficult to read. It would make it easier to use with my phone if the colors were readable. "/

Thanks! Lyda, me and the two dogs hiked 10.5 miles yesterday. My body is feeling it today! Guys are heading back out to catch dinner and we are going for a shorter hike today! Thanks for the help! Have a great day. :)

I'm using the mobile site to post this. Hope it doesn't look too weird!
