That's not compatible with this version of vBulletin, and Pekka will not upgrade vBulletin software since he's developing a complete replacement for it.

While I agree with Pekka's view about third party applications, it does appear that VBulletin has created their own mobile suite which is now part of VBulletin (as opposed to a third party app) and actually has both IOS and Android Apps.

That solution is not free and will cost a lot of Pekka's time to implement. Time that is better spent on the new forum software or his family life outside POTN.

I also understand that there are those who may not want to use their mobile devices. Yet, there are those of us who have parental duties (i.e., soccer practices, waiting in car lines where you have to get there 20 minutes early, etc.) where we could use our devices to access POTN and catch up on subscribed threads.

With new software there will be solution(s) to make it possible. I test routinely the current dev version with my iPad. Reducing amount of data transferred is also close to my heart so it transfers very little data after initial load (to browser cache).

Looking forward to the new version. I read this forum quite a bit; on my iphone, ipad. It is a great place. Thank you for all your work.

FWIW, when I browse POTN on my Iphone, I could never use the search function on my iphone for some reason. Tap the field opens the keyboard but I only able to type in 1 character and it'll zoom back out to the screen and I have to tap it again to type in another character, and keep doing it in...

Very strange, on the ipad it works fine.

So yeah an iphone app would be great haha :)

When the box comes up, click 'Advanced Search', and do it that way. Works pretty good! I had the same problem until someone told me that!


I wonder if the video editors on The Titanic ever went, "Sorry, I can't right now. I'm busy synching the Titanic..."
