Cr needs to eliminate the obnoxious "install the mobile app" screen then the other screen that we tablet users have to swat down before we can access the actual cr site on our tablets. It's like crunchyroll doesn't want us to get on the main site via our tablets and phones. Seriously. I find myself avoiding the main site because I know I will have to suffer through those 2 screens to get in every time. None of those videos on the 2nd screen work on a droid device anyway so it just is a nusince. We droid users get the usual "you can't watch this video because you don't have flash if we click on any one of those videos on the 2nd screen. And everyone knows droid stopped supporting flash video years ago. So cr lets fixed that neah?

I think they need to make a decent, nagivatable mobile interface that's forum inclusive. They don't have a mobile site for the forums. I always have to use the desktop site on mobile because the mobile site if you can call the limited thing that, doesn't work at all, and it's just… nah nah nah.

I can keep using the desktop site til the end of time til they fix it, but it's more of a pain to have to move my fingers around the amount I do to read text because it shows up so small when I first click on threads, as the mobile phone doesn't recognize desktop sites as well, and the zooming… the zooming…

Anime girl I think it has something to do with a site admin setting that detects a mobile device and directs us to an old setup. The site devs need to fix that

Well I've never seen a mobile forums page, I don't think they ever made one. I can access my profile page in mobile form but almost nothing else works. I'm perfectly able to use the desktop format fine as much of a pain the zooming in and zooming out can be. I don't know what the problem is. I'm on an iPhone, this has been happening ever since I've had an iPhone, I've had two of them in the last four years. There's a reason why I basically have the forums bookmarked on mobile, so that I don't have to go through that app thing. If I go to a forum page it *usually* doesn't detect that I'm mobile, except maybe once and thereafter I can go to the desktop format so long as I don't use the homepage link- unbombarded.

Lol and that is a pain in the ass. I have the main page bookmarked so I can see the site news and the upcoming episodes list. As I usually use my tablet to do that it sucks balls that I have to go through the "install the app"screen, which is installed on my tablet, then click go to full site which takes me to a screen with vids that cannot play on my device, then click on " go to full site" again to finally get to the actual site I wanted two screens before

Yeah now that droid systems are getting larger and larger there isn't a need for the weirdness. I also use the full site on my phone because the mobile site is gimped to hell and back.

I agree wholeheartedly. I have the forums page bookmarked to avoid those 2 useless screens. Sometimes I'm forced back to it though when I have to do a certain mod-related thing.

I've moved this thread over to Suggestions/Feedback to give it a better chance at being seen by CR staff.
