What's your thoughts on the mobile version of AFF?

I'm planning to meet with the person responsible for the mobile version of this site (the version you get when you use your smart phone). As you can guess, I have an opinion on it's current status, but want to hear yours. Let me know what things you like, what you don't, and what you'd like to see it support. While you're at it, any thoughts on getting a version working well on tablets? Thanks!

3/7/2013 - Thanks for the really helpful comments. The person in charge of mobile has gone through your feedback and is working on an upgrade list.

Well... both smartphone and tablet access is important for some people. I take it from your comment that you are mostly a web browser user?

It's slow and very limited in what it can do, although that's a common problem with most mobile apps. I dislike the way it requires the home page (all the profile pictures and video thumbnails) to load completely before I can do anything. I usually just use it to check if I have emails. It's difficult to even get to the blogs in the mobile version, so I tend to use the full version even from my smartphone.

I hate the mobile version so I just use the full version from my phone but I only use it for reading blogs and checking emails.....which take forever to load!

Because of the limitations of the mobile version I always use the desktop version on my phone, loads up quickly enough so no issues with speed, as long as wifi is available. I think the mobile version would need to be seriously overhauled before I would bother using it.

First, I'd like the option of turning off explicit pics the same way I can do on the desktop version. I look at the desktop version in more private locations. I look at the mobile version when I'm traveling or other times where there's a greater chance that someone may be looking over my shoulder.

I'm curious how most of the others folks who use the mobile site use it.

Next I'd fewer match suggestions and search options, which I'm *not* going to be searching for on on the mobile site, and links the the blogs and groups. Right now I need to switch over to the desktop view to reach them. If a link is there, I'm not sure where to find it.

Finally, I would say an overall leaner design giving fewer options for more site features.

I don't have a big problem with the speed but I can see where if you have a less powerful phone or are in an area with "fewer bars" getting around the site might be more cumbersome and slower.

If I can think of anything else, I'll be back.

It's meh, I usually go to the desktop version on my phone and zoom in from there. Better navigation there.

The mobile version is terrible on the iOS platform! I'll respect that Flash-based content is a huge portion of the "modern internet experience", but there have to be some work-arounds for a dominant platform that has chosen to blatantly disregard Flash.

The app isn't much better for an iOS user... no access to chat (even HTML chat), no access to blogs or the magazine, search results are FAR from accurate... I can't even begin to express my frustration at finding COUNTLESS profiles that are for rm_(username), which translates that they have been REMOVED from the database utilized by the system at large.

A lot of work is needed before I'd offer up my credit card and actually PAY for anything around here, as I spend 90% of my time on this site using an iPhone.

I tried putting the mobile version on my tablet so I could glance at it at lunch, but after the thing opened up with x-rated pics all over it, I unloaded it. Email would tell me I had two or three emails, but I only have been able to get one to load.

So, I just wait till I get home, or if I need to use the tablet, I load the desktop version.

the app I used never let me actually logg into using my name and pass so gave up on that but if mobile was faster I might as long as I had access to the blogs but have to goto the desktop version for that.

I think its half-garbage.

I use the mobile version to check blogs when I'm bored, and the only way I can get to them is to have the link sent to my phone and bookmark it. However, since some kind of redesign a few months back, you don't allow me to see the whole blog, just the amount that fits on the phone screen, making it almost useless for that too.

I'd redo the mobile blog pages in a similar way to what you did with the regular stuff (whos viewed me/winked/hotlisted) so that I can see any new blogs on my watchlist, and actually see the whole blog page. Limit the bling out, or take out the various blog headers people use, so that I can at least see the picture they post and the text. If its my blog, I want to see new comments and who has visited.

I think you can limit the video content accessible as well in the interest of making it load faster, at least on the main pages.

I do use the phone to see who has viewed me, etc. and its fine for that part. Email is fine too.

I dislike greatly the notification of "chat" messages. I don't generally use "chat" at all, and it seems like it signs me into chat when I am on my mobile phone. I currently have 99+ notifications....

I use my smartphone to either a. check emails, which is difficult to do and I can't get the menu to work right for me to read them, or b. to look at blogs, which I can't figure out how to do it at all and have to switch to the desktop version. IMHO, the mobile version is useless.

2022... it HAS be better, right?!

The mobile version is limited and not well designed. But, the desktop version has its kinks, too. For example, if I click on the ID from the message center using the desktop version, it takes me to a profile in the mobile version. There is no access to the chat rooms in the mobile version.

On another note, have you ever thought of creating a wish list, divided up into categories--message center, home page, blogs, groups, chat rooms, for example--so members can list features or changes in features they'd like to see?

The mobile version might be OK on a phone, but is terrible on a tablet. I access on my tablet using a browser. I expect to see the same site I get when I am on my computer but get the mobile version instead. There should be a tablet version that looks and runs the same as the web version.

I gave up trying to access the site on my iphone because it just gives me online matches and what's hot, and the profiles are abreviated. I also can't get it to change to desktop.
I would like access to the blogs, full profiles, and email to be the main focus of the mobile version.
On my ipad, I was frustrated that it kept treating me like I had an iphone so I gave up until a blog buddy showed me how to select desktop from the bottom of the page. Unfortunately, it reverts back to mobile after a few minutes so I have to constantly hit desktop.

Elevate me...

    Quoting  :

I agree with this limitation in the use of mail. As it stands, I would only use the mobile version to check mail. To have the desktop version show on my phone is too small, except that's the only way to get to the blogs. A link to blogs on the mobile version would be nice.

I also have trouble having the desktop version load at all on my phone. And the mobile version is just buggy in general.

As for the tablet version, there is the issue that you can't scroll in the message center when using the desktop version. That's irritating.

But I also have a problem with the fact that when I have the content filter set to "on," it's not a complete filter. Any notifications that get sent to me still show explicit photos...that's always great for when I have one of my kids behind me and a cock shows up in my email. I've had to turn off all notifications for this reason. Also, the filter randomly covers explicit photos in the blogs...not all of them, just some of them. And then it filters some photos that aren't remotely close to being explicit, like when someone posts a picture of a landscape.

Anyway, that's all I've got. Thanks.

I've tried the Droid app but found it too limited and found myself unable to do much more than to check if I had mail.

I also checked out the site on my Kindle Fire last night (before I knew about this post). Most of the site worked well on the mobile version with one BIG exception. No Chat ability due to the reliance on Flash.

I find it hard to use so i don't use it. You cannot get to chat or at least i don't know how. I just use the desk top version either on my phone or tablet. When in email in my table i cannot scroll through a message completely. I have not idea what that is.

From what I have seen - members often appear online long after they have logged off, not permanently, but average probably 2-3 hours. This has been the case for years. Nevertheless people don't like it, as you say, and it does make a mockery of locating people for instant interaction. This problem is also felt heavily in ProfileLand by many many people, who will not be posting here.

I have my own profile, and also a couples profile with my husband. Sometimes one profile is still listed as being online up to 6 hours after log off time...possibly more, but 6 is the most we have kept track of. If you have a suggestion of how to demonstrate this, I would be most interested, as I assure you it is not my imagination. And yes, we log off properly, and shut down our browser, which automatically clears the cache and cookies. Should I add that we have used 3 different browsers, all of the most recently updated version?

Getting back on topic.... I must agree with those who have expressed their frustration with the mobile site. I prefer to use the desktop version on my iphone,as well as on my former blackberry, and dislike the constant shifting to the mobile version when I click on certain links.

as a group moderator ( Younger Women for Older Men ), it's useless. You can get into the groups, I use the regular site on my phone if I can't get to a computer.

I dont like the fact that the "Renew" is right next to the ico to check email. I would prefer the full version and if I can find out how to get the mobile version off my phone I will.

The mobile version is very limited. I think it should feature the same as we get on here when we are using our PC's. We want access too be able too chat with folks in a chatroom better.
