Mobile Friendly Site

How about a WAP site, or a site that has a reduced content so that mobile browsers work more efficently?

I accessed FF from my fone, and it cost me $5.37

Facebook have a halfway decent mobi site, and so do gmail.

Any opinons?

Re: Mobile Friendly Site

Turn off pictures, thats what I did and it saved me a fortune.

But yeah, would be good to have a mobile site.

Re: Mobile Friendly Site

Try out http://www.fiatforum.com/archive/

This wont keep you up to instant minute posts, but will make viewing for the forum a lot quicker.

What type of forum is it ( The Software )? It looks like vBulletin but I could be wrong as there are quite a few different brands.

Maybe there is a mobile skin out there for it??

Re: Mobile Friendly Site

not really a WAP kinda site but a more iPhone friendly site would be nice, but with the option to turn it off and us iPhone users get really annoyed as being stuck in crappy versions if we want to see something

or an iPhone app! the facebook one is actually very good!

Re: Mobile Friendly Site

What would you need to make it iPhone friendly?

As for WAP - there is the archive as mentioned above, which you can actually log into and it will put all the posts in order - however - you can't post ... which sucks

Re: Mobile Friendly Site

Im sure some vbulletin based forums have a PDA option. I would like this so I could browse on the sofa on my mobile.

It would be good not just for iphone but for other mobiles too like Symbian S60/UIQ or WM5/6 phones.

I think everything would need to be scaled down image wise - no avatars and autodetect the screenwidth for portrait/landscape displays. Maybe just a modded skin? I can post some example sites if needed.
