Default Mobile AYBS? and more?

Sorry if this has been asked before (or if the info is in plain view and I am just not seeing it), but is there a mobile version of this board? I tend to check in here using the web browser on my phone and wondered if an easier way to view the board exists. Thanks!

I use the web browser on my phone too to check the board occasionally. Once I figured out how to zoom in and wasn't faced with a miniature version of this board squeezed onto a 2-inch screen, it worked fine

Ok, cool - I figured that was the only option, but I thought I'd ask anyway. I was dreaming there would be some sort of vbulletin app that would make navigation on a phone easier, but I suppose not. I looked for something in the iphone app store, but didn't see anything that fit the bill. Thanks!

Does that mean I don't need to use a magnifying glass any longer?

Yep! You know what's really annoying? Electronic devices no longer come with a complete manual. My phone manual is ridiculously short, and the rest? Well, there's the online manual.
Which I can't find.
So I couldn't look up how to zoom on my phone. Fortunately, I accidentally did it once, and then I knew! All I have to do is hold my finger down on the touchscreen, and then it zooms in.

I saw two little squares on the screen of my phone and tapped them to see what would happen. I don't remember what occured. .

I don't have a mobile version per-se, but the site does come up OK on a lot of mobile devices using their built-in browsers. I often check in from my BlackBerry, though posting from it can be a hassle at times.

A mobile version is something I will have to look into...thanks for the idea

Same here - yeah - definitely no problems, but I noticed that some websites out there have a mobile version or app that is a little easier to navigate than the regular browser version on a phone, so I thought I'd ask. No biggie, though. Zooming in works
