As a long-time android-masm32-browsin'-member I can attest to the fact that yes, it's a pain in the *** to view the forum on a tiny screen.

But then again, so would be trying to code on a smartphone too.

I don't think there are enough members (using smartphones to view and/or post) to justify changing the forum layout for the few nuts like me that regularly post from a smartphone.  Just my thoughts.

A good pair of reading glasses (4x) helps. So does the zoom feature.

I have never had a smart phone...Is it possible to connect one to an external screen?  :idea:

Zoom makes text large but spreads it out everywhere and you have to scroll around.

I asked because other forums are more readable.

yes, I know. But you see the dilemma. If there are very few members that view the forum on android or other smartphone, why would hutch devote
presumably considerable time changing the forum format to accommodate android users.

Me, I don't expect that he would want to.

Of course these are just my thoughts. I guess hutch will have the final word.   8)

Once I tested an app that supports SMF forums. I did not found any improvement over the browser. I don't remember the name, though. Probably there are others.
