I have just installed a (paid for) theme which gives a different look to the forum more compatible with Touchscreen devices. This theme should automatically be selected on a mobile device. The interface has a button at the bottom to take you to the normal site if you don't like the mobile forum. If you are on a desktop browser, clicking on the "Mobile" link in the page footer

Hopefully those users on smartphone type devices will find this update allows them to use the forum more effectively.

I actually used this on my iphone this morning and I must admit it was much better experience than trying to view the full web version of the site on such a small screen. The layout took a little bit of getting used to (mostly the collapsing forum menus and the images not being shown within posts) but only a few moments. I would definitely say it is a major improvement for people using a mobile device. Thank you for the upgrade, were you able to pay for this out of existing donations?

Are so that explains it. Was confused for a bit. On the iPad, I think I prefer the original site, though I can see how it would be better on a phone.

I find it hard to correctly select the topics on the ipad without major zooming in with the normal theme. Having said that, its not awful. For mobile phones however sMF4Mobile seems better - however there is a bit of a learning curve as it's quite different.
