BN and iphone

Post by srkmrd »

when I first started using BN on my ipone it worked great but now it is almost impossible to read, the lines down the left side and the smileys seem to get really big and you have to scroll forever to read a post. Is anyone else having this issue????

Does anyone have any suggestions????

I have the same problem, but it's always been that way for me. Waaaaaaay too annoying to even attempt to read BN, let alone post.

BEG, I know what you mean......I used to post from my phone but now I only look when I really want to see something, just to much trouble. I was hoping someone here had the magic answer to fix it!!!!

I know nothing about the i-phone......however at one point after i had had my i-pod for quite some time and it wasn't working right....took it into apple, and they fixed it just by doing the updates that i had never done :-? .... just wondering/hoping if you took your i-phone to the store if there's something they might be able to do for you :-?

Sadly before I updated to the latest version of iphone it seemed to work ok, this started when they came out with the newer version.......for me anyway.

There are lots of iphone BNers I think........hopefully someone has the fix!!! :D :D :D

I have an i pod touch and often have the same issue...but not always. Sometimes I get a "normal" sized mobile version...just seems to be random. :-?

It appears to be a problem with only BN...I can access the other boards I visit (that are even more graphics intense than here) with absolutely no problem. So something in the BN software doesn't like the iphone. Doesn't seem like there's going to be a fix coming, either. :-?

I read something about a tapatalk app, but the administrator of a forum has to setup everything on the forum server for it to work. Maybe phjim will know something about this.

Hearing more good things about Tapatalk, especially for phpbb boards like BN. As more and more and more Apple devices are out there (iPod, iPhone, iPad, iThisThatAndTheOther), it would be great to have this enabled here on BN!

I've got a Droid X .... the BN forums are difficult to read
and near impossible to post replies on the Android system too.

I don't have that problem in other forums.

On android, you can download a different browser from the market (Dolphin, Opera, Firefox, etc.) and some of them have an option to load the full desktop version of the site, instead of the mobile version.

The fruit phone doesn't allow alternate browsers because Apple knows what their customers want better than their customers do. :roll:

Come to think of it ... I use Opera on my company blackberry ... I haven't put that on my Droid.
Lemme do that now.
