Mobile version of GameSlurp

Azz, is it possible to setup a mobile friendly view of the site?

Re: Mobile version of GameSlurp

Not totally plain text - still some styling but less images and no complex JavaScript (which wouldn't work in mobile browsers) would be good.

At the moment, the site renders fine but load times are quite long.

Cheers!

Re: Mobile version of GameSlurp

I'd love a mobile edition version but it's a lot of effort I guess for just making things a bit more convenient.

Re: Mobile version of GameSlurp

Not sure if it would be the best use of our resources tbh guys, esp as the technology seems to be catching up with the web (proper browsers such as those in the iphone/android etc) meaning there's less of a need these days. Although can see the point of dl speeds, but I guess things will be improving on that front too - given the largest estimated growth in broadband/internet usage, is on mobile devices maybe it's sommin we can look into at a future date.

Re: Mobile version of GameSlurp

Agreed resource requirement versus use is definately questionable and I wouldn't bother myself but even on my Ipod Touch it is much nicer using a ME site than a full site irrespective of speeds. Just the layout and functionality is optomised for a smaller screen.

Re: Mobile version of GameSlurp

From the iPhone this site looks pretty good.

There is a site that I access via Safari on the iPhone that was made specially to cater for iPhone\Touch users that just works like magic easy to navigate and browse

The main site if accessed by a PC is just as you would expect of a normal forum but when you connect via Safari for the iPhone thats when the magic starts!

I'll see if I can get some more info!

Re: Mobile version of GameSlurp

I have an iPhone 3GS and I hate sites that route me to the mobile version. Hopefully sites will stop sending the iPhone to the mobile sites and direct them to the full site, unless they use nothing but flash. I have encounter a couple of sites the had an empty main page because it was flash only and didn't offer a simple site.

Back on topic. I agree that phone browsers are getting more standards compliant and screens are getting bigger, so mobile specific will be less necessary/desirable in the near future. Especially when everyone has an iPhone!

Apple, Google (Android), and MS will be pushing more capable browsers with 4G networks coming online early next year.

Re: Mobile version of GameSlurp

Not sure if we'll get it for this iteration of GS, but for the next 'update' I will certainly be looking into a light version or even a dedicated app
