      Viewing SkyUser on your mobile / iPad etc

      Over the last few months, it is more than apparent to us, (from using Google Analytics) that a lot of people visit SkyUser from their mobile devices.

      Out of nearly 500k visitors to this site within the last 30 days, 107,175 of you, used your mobile / iPad to view our website.

      We fully appreciate that the forums may not be the most mobile friendly and to this end, we have totally embraced 3rd party add ons.


      If you are using a mobile / iPad to view SkyUser, then we have already added 3rd party addons that can definitely enhance your experience.

      In case you didn't know, we already support;

      Tapatalk

      You can download the app from here,

      iPhone / iPad

      Android

      Blackberry

      Chrome


      The app costs approx 1.99 (I cannot get on iTunes to verify for some reason)

      We also support,

      Forum Runner

      You can download the app from here

      iPhone

      Android

      The app costs $1.99

      From a personal point of view, I have both apps, and they are about the same performance wise. Whichever app you choose, you will definitely benefit from faster loading of threads, no adverts, and an easy to use interface.

      Let us know how you get on in this thread.

      Thanks for the update.

      The site is looking good via iPhone's safari.

      I personally use tapatalk to view the forum on my iPhone. It's just this minute been updated and I've not had any problems with it. It's fast as well.

      Please tell me that I'm not going to start seeing a popup asking me to install 'Tapatalk' every damn time I visit the forum on my iPad, like many other forums do?

      I find this extremely annyoing, and quite often close the browser rather than continue on to the forum.

      Thanks for the feedback.

      Using either of the options above is so much easier for myself, I prefer to use them then a normal browser on the phone.

      I cannot remember what it says, but you can defo tell it to stop pestering you.

      I know the nag screen can be annoying, however when over 1/5th of our visitors are using mobile devices to view this site, we would be foolish not to include such methods.
