A mobile version of the site





milkshake01
Hello,

I suggest a mobile version of the site for the site for the following reasons:

1. Bandwidth - Most mobile phones with Internet access have a limited amount of bandwidth. Non-mobile sites take up more bandwidth than mobile sites. This may result in extra charges by the service provider.

2. User Friendly - Viewing non-mobile sites on mobile sites requires zooming in to tap on small buttons on smaller phones. This makes it difficult and time consuming for mobile users to use.

If you have any other reasons please reply to this post.

Frihost is already exceptionally good at using a small amount of bandwidth. Probably already much lower bandwidth usage than most 'mobile' websites.

...Using a full-featured forum from a phone won't be easy anyway...

I agree that people are switching to mobile handsets for browsing and some maintenance. We manage our help desk through a mobile app. However, for development and extensive maintenance and traditional computer or laptop is still a necessity.
