Is there a mobile version of this forum?

I was just wondering if there's is a mobile version of this forum, an optimized version for accessing on a Blackberry/iPhone/cell phone. I would love to be able to easily access LCF on the go!

I can get in on my Blackberry through my browser, but it's not optimized. Takes a little longer to access/load different pages but it works. I can post, etc.

Like Angie, I can post from my phone but it's not a special app. I have to access the web, and then find the page. It's slow, and a pain in the butt to type as much as I usually do, but I can do it.

Ah, thanks guys! A mobile version (not an app, but a version optimized for mobile browsers) in the future would be amazing. In the meantime, I will access the regular site via browser.

I can access it on my StraightTalk phone (Samsung R355C) but can't figure out how to post. Too bad, cause I have a boatload of Mb's LOL

I have an iPhone so the site renders quite well on the browser, but a mobile version would be awesome.

It looks as if mobile skins for vBulletin exist, so it should be possible to set it up.

If any mod sees this thread and wants to activate a mobile skin option that would be fantastic!

Which is a very good reason for a phone app or mobile version!

I don't think it's something that a mod could set up, but presumably there are some tech people involved with managing the servers/software side of things, and they should be able to handle it if they think it's worth doing.

As junkfoodmonkey pointed out, it could really help with providing on the spot support when you need it most . It's not all about letting us play with our techie toys. Honestly.

Yes other vBulletin forums offer a 'mobile' version. It's just a skin/template that the user can then select. This forum is using just the default vBulletin skin (nothing wrong with that, it's clean, easy to maintain and makes upgrades to newer versions later far easier).

Yes then everyone can get support when they're in line at Starbucks or Timmy's about getting talked down from the triple chocolate cream donut or the colassal chocolate chip muffin.

I thought I had posted a link to a popular vBulletin mobile template on their org site but the link must've been removed.

Thank you for your suggestion and comments. At this time, we have no plans to provide a version optimized for mobile browsers.

Thanks for responding Kathy. It seems most of us are able to access the regular site on our smartphones - just thought it might be a cool idea. I love the community on here.
