More and more people are using their android device or iphone to access online content. Perhaps it would be in wincustomize's interest to consider developing a mobile web version of the site.


Apparently irrelevant.

Definitely would be a nice thing to have available.

id skin it. wikked idea tim.

If it could be done easily and cheaply I'd be all for it, but since all the apps and skins are for Windows PCs, spending resources on mobile does not make as much sense.

Time to expand.

Wallpapers are easy. (Why isn't there a gallery for mobile wallpapers?) How similar are the Live Wallpapers to Dreamscapes?

Someone must be looking into or working on apps and/or widgets.

It's not just the skins though. I think folks would be interested in a mobile version of the forums.

I'd like to have a mobile-friendly site, but it's hard to justify when the amount of people who actually visit the site is such a very, very small number.

Might be viewed as an investment in growing that number a good deal... especially if Sound Packager could be expanded to have ring tones as well?

I'd like a mobile version of the (elemental) forums. The background takes quite a while to load when I don't have wifi, and I haven't been able to post a reply using my smartphone at all..

That's actually what I was thinking about for now.

DA has a mobile friendly version already.

WC does okay on my iPad, but I can imagine it does not do well on smart phones. Some features are limited when I try to access the forums on my iPad, like emotes; and relplying can be a bit clunky too.

I sometimes like to view skins and updates on my iPad, even though I wait to DL them until I'm at my PC.

Harley might have been working on something like that for WCNews, or skin notifications... he and I talked about it several months ago.

My 2-cents...

Like Zubaz said, it makes no sense doing that since WC is a Windows Customization Site.

As for the forums... well, with all of the existing ranting and complaining about the forums why would you want to further muddy the waters and have more to complain about? Plus, I find typing on a smart phone to be ok for txt messaging by I certainly wouldn't want to use it for more in depth things. I don't think there is a forum on the planet that I NEED to use my phone to access. That's why I have a PC and laptops.

I am unable to use the reply box on my HTC android device. Plus.....zooming in every time the page changes is a pain.

I'm sure this will change for many in the not too distant future....it's only a matter of time.
