« on: October 26, 2016, 10:20:06 PM »
Just out of curiosity,
Are there any recommended apps that can view this forum easily?

A good point, so far testing on mobile browsers like Safari and Chrome works fine but text can get a little small and fiddly. I am looking into responsive templates to hopefully make things a little more accessible on mobile phones but this will require a little customisation work. Will add to the to-do :)

Really appreciate it Simon.

It makes it easier for some i guess who use their phones now to take WIP pics.

My current procedure to update forums is to use a camera, take pics, upload those pics from an SD card to my pc, then upload it to the forum.
If this can be reduced by just uploading from my phone to the site, it would be much appreciated.

Simon, I would recommend to install the tapatalk plugin on the forum, you have to use their app and there is some advert but it makes a real difference when accessing a forum on a smartphone, here are some screenshots of mine (hope you don't mind me posting that), it's in French but you get the idea before and after.
