i sent an email with photo attached to info@global-flat.com

Keep it up! It'd be nice to have a mobile form for replying to or modifying a message, because the page is really large as it is now. Also a special mobile recent posts page would be most welcome.

i don't understand why you'd want a mobile verson when you can view the whole page on an iphone, i hate being routed to mobile versons of web pages....it blows. its good for people without a full web brouser i guess, but i hope this mobile verson stuff dies out soon.

pulsar, i kind of feel ya, a lot of times the mobile sites really stink, with too little info (i.e. no formatting, jpgs, etc.) and way too stripped-down interface. The problem with the reg Global site on an iphone is that the page is very large and many of the buttons are very small so it's a lot of fingerwork to get things done.

You know, overall i have to agree though. I do tend to prefer all the full regular capabilities of a large page than a stripped down, function-removed mobile page.

i hear ya, i just got good at shrinking and stretching, double tap in the field your trying to get to, i don't mind it at all once you get good with controlling an iphone. i don't know how it is for other phones though. ussually when you get routed to a mobile verson of a site there is ussually a "view page in full" button at the bottom. it seems like mobile versons are really for the cheaper phones which the internet capabilities suck on anyways........ehh...it'll die off as phones get better.

I think it's a good idea because the amount of information to load is sometime slowing down my iPhone. But on the other hand, a lot of the mobile websites suck ass. Just need to key in the ability to navigate the site and see the forum tree, maybe upload pics option (as opposed to using photobucket) or integrate something that works like photobucket.
