Forums on phone

Post  Matthew G on Fri Feb 01, 2013 4:14 pm

Does anyone use their phone or other device to access the forums? Are you just as fed up as I am with the forum message interface?
Get tons of typos because you can't see what you are typing?

Does anyone have an answer for this?

I see an android app called tapatalk. Anyone use it? It's 2.99 but I don't wanna buy it if it doesn't work here.

Hehe.. Yeah, thanks Ryan.

Galaxy 2. The forum interacts horribly with the phone. Actually.. Its mainly the typing box. Cant select where to move the cursor.. Jumps around.. Crap like that.

The mobile site is so terribad that I've switched to the regular site. I also turn auto-correct off on all my devices.

I suppose I should note that I also disable the mobile site on my phone and use the standard view.

yeah i just use the regular site. the mobile site sucks.

the only real problems arise when posting. the font seems to re-size for no reason and at random.

I'm on a Galaxy note 2 and it doesnt matter if i'm touch typing or using the stylus.

A good learning/predictive keyboard app like swiftkeys 3 helped a ton on my Galaxy 2, once it starts predicting words like tau, kharne, etc but its not available yet for the note 2

Not a clue then. Maybe it is having a hard time with the resolution setting since the Note has a rather unusually sized screen?

My phone is the cheap one that Rogers gave me, don't know the name.

I use the regular view and it works fine for me when in class.

The new BB's look good enough that Amazon might by the company formerly known as Rim. (Yes, they changed their company name)

I think its just too late.

You know what Rim. er blackberry should do? give up on software and just make devices. the BB curve was a fantastic device (for its time). and i've always thought Rim had great quality hardware. but I dont think the market wants or needs a 3rd(4th, if you include windows phone, which i dont) platform to try to develop on. BB11... now with IOS or android!

BlackBerry is like the gf, that treated you like shit for years, then when you dump her, promises to let you have boys night, a threesome and pay your rent if you take her back.

I gave up on crackberry last year. I'm not sold on the hardware. The wifepersons had to be repaired 3x the last year we had it.

As an aside, iPhones.... Hmmm $500 and a 3 year contract? I know where that iPhone can go....

problem with $500 phones with 3 year contracts is that the phone is outdated in 6 months =x

My iPod is able to act as a phone so long as I have Wifi. Unlimited long distance within the continent.
