Probably around the same time you get a mobile device that can handle OC.net's awesomesauce  :laugh:

Mobile sites usually just annoy me when browsing on my phone.

It had to be an Episcopalian suggesting we innovate.

First step, mobile friendly website. Next step, female priests.

As soon as someone who has the expertise would be willing to donate their time.  Unfortunately we all have other jobs, families, & responsibilities & are usually spread really thin to do a comprehensive & well thought out job on a project such as this.  Plus, not a ton of people have real knowledge of how to do these things.  So....are you offering?   ;)

....wouldn't that constitute a change?  We're Orthodox.  We don't "change"!  :)

Besides, I have no issues using this site via my mobile phone....via the Browser.  Works just fine for me.

Only an Ecumenical Council can tell us to go mobile!  ;D

I agree with this, ive never had a serious problem with this site on my mobile, be it my phone or my iPad(fun fact, i like reading the forum better on my iPad than my computer, but my phone also is good)





However, if the need/wish for it to be there, there is always this

I wish! Really, I wish I did have the expertise. But there are a ton of people that do.

If you check out reddit.com, post the job in http://www.reddit.com/r/forhire, you might get some takers. That site is full of tech people.

It seems to me "OC.net" isn't overwhelmed with financial support of the existing set up; perhaps a substantial donation would be needed to go mobile, not that it would make any difference to me.

Or someone with some free time and an open source solution could easily implement.  Not sure what is compatible with our board software.

I'm reading this site with the Safari browser, on a phone, and it looks fine.

Fonts are too small.  And I have to keep scrolling and zooming to click.

I don't find this a problem. If you do, though, I don't know what would help. Sorry.

On the iPad Mini the Forum looks great, just the right size.  However it's a bit tricky when trying to hit a tiny page number with my Ballpark Frank-sized fingers!

I'm all for tapatalk-ing this forum.  The only set back is perhaps reading quotes, which I've seen tapatalk has a problem in, but hopefully can fix.

Nevertheless, for mobile users like me, making a tapatalk version of this sight would be most helpful.

But hey I can't wait to get an Android though.

It's hard to navigate on my Android, which is my only internet connection besides going to school for now.

It's something on the development list. When, I cannot say, though.

Same for Kindle Fire hd 7 inch. Quotes are tough to grab.
