Mobile view or portal for the Forums?
« on: August 08, 2010, 01:19:03 PM »
I read Tech Talk on my smartphone, and rarely on my computer.  Since Tech Talk is transitioning to the Forums, I would like to access the Forums more easily on my Palm Pre.

I am a member of other online Forums (and Moderator of one) which have either a mobile portal or simplified views for use on mobile devices like smartphones.  They present cleaner, simplified screens with just text, no or fewer graphics taking up screen real estate, and faster loading and screen rendering.  I'd like to request this functionality for the AHA Forums...and if it already exists and I am just missing it, please point the way.  Thanks!

We're actually working on that right now and looking at installing tap-a-talk for instance.

Drew and Fred Bonjour were working on testing it.  Shoot one of them a PM for a progress report.
