    There is something this temp needs ... A mobile display option it is really annoyng if your on your phone or ipod touch (me) and everything is enlarged and out of place need to move the screen to see something when other websites eg:wikipedia has a mobile option, just easily scroll down to see stuff.

    So it will be nice to have a mobile option [​IMG] please [​IMG]

    How much people use forumns on their phones it would be pointless because no one would use it anyway all that effort would be a waste sure you would use it but other people what about them how much of them will use it?

    No advanced formatting.



    If someone were to make a proper mobile theme for GBAtemp (and it might happen with GBAtemp v4) that'll probably be used.
    If you're interested in news and the like, Little is running a RSS feed reader of sorts, formatted for the DS Opera Browser(although works on mobiles as well) called Wumga.com

    I sometimes go on GBAtemp on my phone but I use Opera Mini too.
    Opera Mini resizes the text so it fits onto the phone's screen so you don't have to keep scrolling left to right.
    It's pretty useful so you should check it out.
