New Mobile Format

Not sure where to post this. But I left my computer and logged into the boards on my phone and noticed a VERY nice new mobile format of HFBoards.

Everything is so much better.

I post 90% from my phone. I hadn't logged in on my phone today though until just now.

Clean, easy to follow, and the text input is so much better.

I don't know who to thank, Mods if you can direct this thread to its proper place?

But thank you! Whoever has made these great new changes.

Love it!

Posting from my Motorola Defy.

Yea I agree it's really nice, but takes some time to get used to.

I was a little confused at first but I like how everything is bigger.

Yea. I was a little shocked but its so much cleaner. Easier to follow.

It feels kind of like an app. Which is a good thing.

The text input is so much better. I was having fits before. Now its easier.

Checking it out on my phone now, definitely like it compared to the old version. Old version had way too much going on.

I was on HFboards between classes today (summer college courses suck). I LOVE THE NEW LOOK. So much easier to read and navigate.

Saw it during lunch today, and it's definitely a huge improvement.

The return to top button is also a great touch.

Not bad. I used the full site anyway when I posted from my phone. Doesn't really make a difference to me...

Noticed a couple of issues though. Seems like you can't pick specific pages in a thread and if you hit one of the first five pages of a thread on the forum, it takes you to the last page anyway.

A lot better but still some issues. Glad you can see pictures now.

Is this even a serious question? have you seen the difference between HF on a smartphone before and the optimized version now?

Well for a message board, yes. Its mostly text oriented, so viewing the desktop version just makes my phone a little laggy. The mobile version is better for me for text input and quickly going from thread to thread.

Agreed

The new version was a billion times better

Did you ever try viewing HF's full version on the stock BlackBerry browser? It, uh, sucked. And many people can't run other browsers on their work BB. So the mobile view was essential.

I have a Droid X, with a custom ROM, overclocked to 1.3GHz. It renders sites fantastically well, and very fast--and yet, I still preferred the mobile view. Too much extraneous information on the full version that I don't care to see when browsing on my phone.

Agreed... Tons of Blackberry users out there that benefit from the mobile versions of websites... I personally don't care for any type of flip/sliding phone where the keyboard isn't always exposed, so I prefer the Blackberries with the 4:3 screens and the traditional size shape.

Just checked out this new mobile version and Tommy likey. Much easier to tell who is posting what, and who is quoting whom.

My BB internet blows so I can't really appreciate it, but I do like it more than the old one.

I made the leap from Blackberry to Android about two months ago.

I have nothing but great things to say about my old BB Curve. No matter how limited/dated it was.

But since my contract ran out I figured it was time for Android.

Ill be honest, nothing beats BB for text input and messaging.

But the Android device is pretty fun.

I do miss my little BB sometimes though.

I may go back to BB after this contract if BB ups their game.

I'm pretty sure all the world records for texting have been done on touch screen phones.

Android for the win though. As time goes on, you only love them more and more.

Yeah, probably by people with stupid hands.

I can not and will never get used to typing on a phone where I can't actually feel the buttons. I can text at the speed of sound without even looking at the keyboard on my BB, but put an Iphone in my hand and it takes me years to text.
