Mobile internet devices... I.E. - Tapatalk

I was wondering if WetCanvas has any plans to implement a mobile device friendly plugin like Tapatalk. This type of plugin formats the bulletin board content so it's easier to access via the mobile device. Plugins like Tapatalk eliminate the unnecessary scaling and scrolling that typically results when viewing a web site designed for a desktop PC. This plugin does not affect the desktop version of the web site at all; it merely takes the data from the database and dumps it into predefined templates designed around the mobile device. If you view the web site from a desktop PC you will see the normal Wet Canvas bulletin board while a user viewing the site on a mobile device will see the content displayed in a mobile device layout.

As a professional web designer it's part of my job to stay current on all present/future technical capabilities. Having said that it is estimated that within 5 years the majority of internet traffic will be from portable devices like smart phones (iPhone, Droid) and tablet PCs (iPad).

Thanks for the information, I suppose it is up to the vBulletin writers to produce a mobile add on for the forum software.

There are certainly too many bugs on the site at the moment to spare techie time to address mobiles.

It will come in due course I suppose.

I use my Playbook tablet and BlackBerry to access WC. I'd love to see it on Tapatalk. Tapatalk should be easy for the administrators to install and it's free!

How can we make this happen?

Realistically I can't see any chance of F+W adding any extras to wetcanvas until they migrate the site to new software later this year.

The site is very unstable at the moment and does not lend itself to add on software. Sorry!

Thanks, no problem. Stabilizing something unstable is always good!

Would love to be able to browse and use a mobile or tablet optimized version of the site.

Since I last posted I have acquired an iPad and can browse wetcanvas easily on it. In fact I am typing this on the iPad.
