Mobile version of the board

Postby junglesmacks » Mon Oct 24, 2011 10:31 am

There are tons of php boards out there that autodetect a mobile login and have a mobile format enabled for easier browsing on smartphones. Any thought of doing this for eplaya?

Definitely would use this feature. Though I can actually browse the site via my phone's browser, so wouldn't be in a big hurry for the mobile implementation.

Maybe the font color scheme would be more readable!

I've been using Eplaya on an Android for a couple years now, no issues.

I use an iPhone 50% of the time, and yeah.. no issues. Gets a little tedious zooming in and out, but it's not bad.

Not unless you're gonna let us all get down on some Chopper Command. You know what they say. If you didn't bring enough for the rest of the class.. then..

Might be time to give some thought to this.

A mobile version of eplaya? I call that road rage.

There are some things under consideration, but nothing to be announced at this time.

User centered design would be to have the users articulate use cases and try prototypes: other mobile-enabled boards...
