Wranglerforum Mobile?

Has there been any discussion about having a WF mobile site. As gun monkey I am not sure how the details work with the social network software. I would be intereseted. I make nearly all my posts from my smart phone. Nearly all my web use is now done from my mobile device. The ads really slow down a mobile. I am not complaining by any means just wondering if any thought has been put into it and if other users post on WF from there mobile?

I misread this post title. I was thinking of a WranglerForum Mobile like a "bat mobile."
Which would be totally AWESOME.

But a mobile phone version would be cool too.

The only issue I have with my Droid is it that posting pics is difficult. With a mobile site maybe that could be better. Again I own a gun shop I am not a software developer. When I don't understand something I normally shoot it.......twice if I need too.

How about a Tapatalk plug-in?

Another forum I belong to just got it, and it's pretty nice. You do have to download a $2.99 app, but in my opinion, it is well worth it. There is a free version but I'm not sure what the difference is.

Everything is very well-presented and it is more user-friendly than a mobile version of a forum. In my experience so far, you don't have to zoom in and out at all, like you would when viewing on Safari on an iPhone. I don't think it takes much work on the forum owner's part, either, although I'm not positive on that.

That being said, I have no trouble at all surfing WF on my iPhone. It just requires a little more zooming in and out.

Anyone who has a phone that is "app capable" probably has a good internet browser as well. Although a cool idea to have the app it seems kinda pointless.

I guess my point was that most mobile friendly websites are set up to view from a phone. The pages look different and easier to browse. MSN mobile is a good example. Much less pinch zooming. The apps are nice too because they also streamline the website they are designed to run. Ebay app is a good example.

Uh oh, the moderators have yet to chime in. Either they really hate the idea of creating this or hopefully they are in a web conference as we speak/type!

I definitely would love to have/use WF mobile. A forum I used to use has a mobile version and it makes it MUCH easier to navigate from a phone. Sounds like you all have the iPhone or Android, I'm the odd man out with a Blackberry.

What kind of blackberry do you have? On my curve I have to zoom to be able to read anything. Using both the native browser and opera makes no difference.

Hmm, yep, java is enabled. I've played with all the settings and can't seem to get it figured out. No big deal, zooming/scrolling isn't the end of the world.

I strongly vote against using tapatalk. The difference between the free one and the $3 one is that you can't post anything on the free one. I refuse to pay for anything that I can do for free already. It isn't difficult to surf the web on an android phone and is easy to post on the forum with it. I have the HTC Incredible and posting works just fine for me. Though it could be my 1ghz processor. Faster that some of you dinosaurs have in your computers!

I have trouble posting pics with my droid. Is there a trick I am missing? I get them uploaded to photobucket just fine have trouble with copy and paste. I use the photobucket mobile app.

I think it's a good idea. 100% of my forum/interwebz activity is through my iPhone. I'd download that tapatalk thing if WF supported it.

Through Safari I can read this site just fine and post and do pics easily. Some things though like making a Jeep Profile I can't do. The URL I post makes Safari crash everytime. I don't know if tapatalk would help or not, but a mobile WF might.i don't know

Is there any merit to something like this or just a pipe dream?

I'm getting a popup now for Forum Runner, but I haven't seen WF in the app. I downloaded the free one to see how it looked.

As of right now WF is missing, but this site just now started the popup.

I just messaged an admin about tapatalk

Its an easy to add addon for forums and if you´ve got an iphone, ipod, android cell phone, etc. you can look at wrangerforum in mobile version. Now we need to show the admins we want it so they´ll install it!
