Still don't understand why we can't use an elegant and extremely simple to use app like Tapatalk ?

This is like trying to showcase Samsung Razr phone when iPhone 4G is already available and in use widely.

I don't buy the poor security argument..

I have tapatalk too but looking here, the list owner suggested that tapatalk had too much access to sensitive information... Perhaps it could be restated but it made sense to me...

+1 - this is probably my most often used method of finding posts to read.

Same here and the feature does exist in the mobile version.... To read the mobile version I tend to visit this thread first and then outlink to the mobile style...

Anything less than using a full fledged mobile app like Tapatalk, we might as well use this slow and clumsy browser version.

I just screamed at my phone for making the login process SO damn painful. Some reason, the login page on mobile Chrome is completely corrupt. Full of weird links to other ev forums and garbage covering the login boxes. Then the on screen keyboard (I HATE touch keyboard phones... But it is what it is, thanks iPhone for corrupting the market there) makes the screen even smaller.

Come to the conclusion this site is unusable on mobile except very dedicated individuals. Definitely in need of a mobile interface like every other real forum has these days... It's bad enough this forum is still using the default preinstalled skin :/

I end up doing most of my browsing, email, posting and pretty much most of the stuff through my iPhone or iPad, and rarely sit in front of my Desktop.

And i find that if I have 15 mins of free time to kill, I end up lurking in Tesla motors club forum using Tapatalk than here, simply because it is so much more easier and you end up reading lot more topics effortlessly through an App than this clunky browser interface.

And I am sure I am not alone.

:? (shrug) The site works fine for my on my iPhone 5 w/built in Safari, just like it worked fine on my iPhone 4. Works fine on my iPad 2 as well.

I browse here almost daily from each of the above 2 devices.

I logged in from both devices w/o issue, since it's required to use View active topics. :roll:

'19 Bolt Premier
'13 Leaf SV w/premium package (owned)
'13 Leaf SV w/QC + LED & premium packages (lease over, car returned)

Please don't PM me with Leaf questions. Just post in the topic that seems most appropriate.
