    Default Bluegrasspreps Mobile Site For iPhone

    This may have already been addressed but now when I go to the site on my iPhone all I can view is the mobile version. Used to at the bottom of the main screen it would give you the option to change to full site. Ever since the changes I cannot find anything but mobile version, searched every where. Is this still possible and if so how do you change it?

    You have to use the mobile site on mobile devices.

    Please see this thread, everyone that is using Forum Runner has been very happy with it:

    Trial run on a new mobile App for BGP

    download/install Forum Runner (there's a paid and free version)

    once it's installed do a search for bluegrasspreps

    And the paid version is the only version I would recommend.

    It's well worth the $1.99 or whatever it is if you ever browse BGP from your phone.

    Why is the mobile site better than the full site?

    Have to give it a try. Was trying to post a pic to a thread from my iPhone yesterday and it just wasn't happening, not many options to work with other than a simple post. Would you be able to upload photos from your phone to BGP's with this forum runner?

    More function such as posting a picture, easier to navigate, faster.

    Yes and it's very easy.

    I don't think you can on the app, you have to manually do it.

    I think it is more difficult to navigate on the mobile compared to the full site. My favorite feature on the full site is that I can click on the last post in each thread. On the mobile site I have to click on the thread then go to the last page, and then scroll down to see the latest post in the thread. As far a speed, the full site on my phone works just as fast it does on my pc at home, at least it seems that way.


    Of course, I might be doing it wrong on the mobile site. Which would not be surprising to me at all.

    No. I only use the full site because I think before the app was available I did not like the mobile site. I just got a loaner phone and went to the website and it was in the mobile format. I did not like it but again it was not being viewed via an app. So, I went to my phone settings and changed it to where websites do not recognize that I am on a mobile device, this way all websites I visit are in full desktop mode.

    Understood.

    I do think the paid mobile app is worth trying. Let us know if you decide to go that route.

    What are the benefits vs. the full site?

    I have apps to some sites that are definitely better using my phone as opposed to full version on my phone.

    Overall speed and ease of use on a mobile device.

    I think this is where some members that use the mobile application on a regular basis need to weigh in!?

    I have been using BGP a ton more on my phone now that I have the app. It runs so smooth compared to the mobile version or even full site. The functions are simple and easy to use and the speed is incredible.

    I recommend it 100%, it is awesome and I have been posting a lot more.

    I echo the comments of everyone above who loves the ap. I have a Droid, but the ap is also amazing for that platform. As mentioned, very smooth and fast. Easy posting, easy to post pictures and easy to customize how you want to view the site. This is hands down, absolutely without a doubt, 1000% better than the mobile site.
