    I've really wanted some kind of smartphone-friendly skin or plugin or whatever for months.

    I don't know if this is the one TF2M should use, but I would use it. I would use anything please just give me a mobile option oh god

    The site works fine on my smart phone. The only real problem is the buttons are so tiny.

    I'm not saying it doesn't load on mobile only that the layout is not designed to be viewed on a mobile device. The ease of use of a native smartphone app versus that of a vanilla vBulletin install on a mobile platform is worlds apart.

    There's very little reason not to use tapatalk to be honest. It's free for the forum to install and it only costs about £2 ($3.50?) to buy the mobile client. We have it over on playstuff and it means I'm able to read the forums on my way to and from work. It's fully featured too, site staff can use it for admin duties on the go.

    This was installed shortly before the forum nuke and it appears to be working fine. I'm posting this via Tapatalk on my iPhone whilst commuting to work.

    Thanks be to Fr0z3n and drp.
