    Viewing Cricketweb from a Mobile Device

    Cricketweb is pretty unfriendly browsing wise from the mobile. I wonder if it can be made more friendly. I am sure vbulletin might have solutions for it.

    I own a BlackBerry phone.

    Yeah not sure how it works but we have that option as a different skin on PC. Even automatically shows that it was posted from a mobile device, though you can delete this. Would be nice if CW was able to do this as well. Its a real pain accessing it from a non-PDA phone.

    AWTA. Good to have the little phone symbol to excuse spelling errors, or to explain incoherent posts if you're on your mobile when you're at a strip club (or something like that)

    I went to Crackberry, the official forum of blackberry and they have an address specifically for mobiles - CrackBerry Mobile From there we can enter forums BlackBerry Forums at CrackBerry.com and view threads in a convenient format in the mobile YouTube anyone? - BlackBerry Forums at CrackBerry.com

    I have bold. It is browsable but not as easy as it can be. It is pretty inconvenient to scroll the large page.

    May be able to view from a blackberry one way or another without wanting to pull your hair out, but its incredibly annoying with a small Motorola z9. I was actually going to start a thread on this pretty soon here.

    Was going to say this myself, but thought it might be a bit harsh.

    Isn't the purpose of alternate internet-access technology to view the same data via different means? Makes the whole thing a bit silly if we actually have to cater specifically for said technology IMO...

    Dunno, when i'm on my phone, I only ever go to CW to check threads when I'm bored, never to actually reply, always reserve the PC for that particular honour.

    That's taking the easy way out. We didn't have RSS in cricketweb and I raised the issue once. Now we have RSS. Most good sites on the net are mobile friendly and there is no reason we shouldn't strive for cricketweb being mobile friendly.

    I think mobiles should make CW mobile-friendly though; that was my point. I find it a bit arrogant of those who make such things to basically be saying "Well you can use the internet on it, but it'll be **** unless all the site owners conform". Internet pages already exist; if you're going to develop technology to access them, it's your responsibility to get it to work properly.

    Not saying we shouldn't make an effort here; I just find it a bit dire that it has to come to such a point where we're expected to, is all.

    Mobiles can't make sites mobile friendly because of limitations of handsets more often than not. Sites have to make themselves mobile friendly. That's the way it works.
