I occasionally use my wife's iPad or my Android when not at home. I'm able to navigate the forum pretty well the way it is but I've been thinking about upgrading it to a mobile friendly site.

I have visited the forum from the iPad.. I don't think there's a need to change the format for mobile tablet users. Smartphone users maybe.. but how large of a market is that? I'd think pretty small..

Travis you may think about getting a simple app for your auction listing service.  I love your service but it is hard to navigate on my iphone.  If you did it in an app or even a mobile friendly format I could get the map directions with just a click as well as make calls that way.  I feel like my iphone gives me an advantage with a bar scanner or just simple web browsing.  It is one of my best tools along with the awesome rechargeable Defiant flashlight that I could signal airplanes with.

Working on that as we speak. Look for it sometime in October.

Actually, it's the fastest growing market in information technology. Google is actually penalizing sites that aren't mobile friendly.

I have looked at the forum on my iPad and it looks fine just using Safari. Don't know about how a smartphone sees it.

I think what HGP might have meant was how many smartphone users are members (or would-be members) of this forum? Sure, smartphones are the latest development in technology but it sounds like your concern is mostly about getting dinged by Google...I assume that means they lower your ratings or something.

As to an "app" for your other websites.....I use the genuine eBay app for the iPad, but of course I could use the regular Safari approach to grabbing it as well. The app for that has a really useable, clean look and is worth using. On the otherhand, I have a Craigslist app which I need to take off. I'd rather just use the Safari browswer approach to looking at my listings on cList. So it might be a toss-up for any company's app vs. regular approach.

So, one of my thoughts is that two HUGE companies like eBay and Clist might need it, but do you ? We're talking millions of users countrywide for the first two mentioned.

I agree, from what I've seen the forum seems to function fine the way it is.
