SingaporeExpats on Mobile Devices and Blackberry

Post by FaeLLe » Thu, 11 Mar 2010 1:02 pm

Hello,

How about making these forums readable on mobile phones ie. come up with a mobile version of this forum.

Currently they look very ugly and difficult to read from a Blackberry or mobile phone.

You could use something like BerryLab ( http://www.berryblab.com/ ) that allows you to integrate vbulletin forums into blackberries.
That would be an easy way to do it except for a massive code writing exercise.

Something to look into.
This could surge usage levels massively.

It's even readable on my old dopod 900 (which is still working like a charm!) but not using IE as the browser though.

Yep, 90% of my posts originate from there. At least I get a break for 1.5 hours each way before logging in again at home! :o

I'll let the US military handle all the 'surges'. :lol:
