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.

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

Same here, on my Samsung Galaxy.

DA has a mobile friendly version already.
Do you mean malware infested version? There is a difference ya know...that version doesn't worry the mobile users so much...lol.

I can post here from my Toshiba Thrive tablet.

I was surprised that WinCustomize didn't have a mobile version.  I tried running WC on my new Android Smartphone today to check on my new screenshot, and I had to zoom in a few times before typing in the search box.  WC does indeed need a mobile version of the site.

Like migrating from Windows XP to Seven, this site needs to get with the times and develop a mobile version (even if it's limited).  That's just my two cents.

ditto

I understand that current traffic to the site may be deemed 'too low' to justify such a move...but in as far as encouraging more people to come to the site, not doing it seems like more of a step back

Start uplozding mobile-sized wallpapers.  Drive traffic and see what happens.

I can't find the 'uplozding' link.

Most people are coming to the site to download WB skins, CFX skins, etc.  That really doesn't have much use on a mobile device considering many can't handle file downloads and transfers. 

I have encouraged people to start uploading mobile sized wallpapers, but very few have actually done it.

Well never mind then. Sorry I brought it up......

I have a few ideas.  First off, the mobile site will mostly be used when traveling anyway, so why not just download the files to a MicroSD card or wirelessly sync your mobile device with your PC? Or WC/Stardock could have a cloud-based service so you'll have all your downloaded files with you, no matter what platform you're on. (It'll save the trouble of re-downloading again on the PC)

Or why doesn't Android or iOS create/support a Windows emulator so that way WindowBlinds, IconPackager, DesktopX, and Deskscapes could still be used on a mobile devices (mainly tablets rather than smartphones)?  A 10 inch tablet screen is large enough to run Windows.   I would love to have Customizable, Vista-Sized (128 or 256px) vector icons on a moblie device.  Default icons on mobile devices are pretty lame with no diversification.  They all use the same graphic-style.

I've done some wallpapers. I've thought about the icons but that can get crazy. You're really skinning icons for a ton of apps more than anything. Narrowing them down to the most common is one thing but from what I have seen and downloaded for my Droid, something always gets left out.

Sorry to bring up an old thread but there is potential here that will be more mainstream sooner than people think.

They look great, Elvee.

Very nice, LV. I apreciate this. I got kinda put off by the "official" responds to this thread. I was hoping for "That's true, 2of3 and it's something we should think about for the future."

Instead I was met with: Why should we consider it when this is a site for windows customization?...and....we asked you all to upload wallpapers for mobile devices and no one did......

 

My main point was that I would enjoy being able to  easily read and respond to threads on the forum when I'm not near my computer, but maybe that wasn't clear enough.

 

Like I said: sorry I brought it up
