Problem with LET on Mobile Devices

edited November 2011 in General

I've noticed this alot, and I'm not sure if its just me.

On my iPhone on the Mobile Version of LET, if I click on a thread, it scrolls to the latest post, however it dosent allow me to scroll up, and it I try just instantly pushes me back down to the bottom.

It happens most the time, anyway been getting this on their Android/iPhone

    Working fine on Android in the default browser.

  • Works fine on my iPhone, but I'm using Mercury as my default browser.

  • iOS 5.0.1 with Safari and having no problems with LET so far.

  • It happens to me when I haven't finished loading and I start scrolling.

  • @draco that must be what's causing it, I'm impatient.

    Nice, the first troll post! Let me continue with that: Maybe the page didnt load because you holded the cell phone with the wrong hand, and you got bad reception.

  • Lol.

    Dunno, I use opera mini n_n

  • I live in the UK, mobile networks are not the issue.

    We have 5 iPhone carriers and unlocked iPhones, as well as our 3G being faster then Verizons 4G

    It's probably a bug in the JavaScript, and let's remember WebKits JavaCore > Trident

    The Original Daniel.

  • I was thinking the javascript as well because that caused the same problem on one of the older forums. The javascript failed to work right, the browser was still waiting to have the page fully load and it said at the url.

    Al these fancy texts and whatnot come at a price. I know I currently can't login into Panera because their login requires javascript within a form and I can't do that in my text browsers. Heard zip from the company about it. About ready to file an ADA complaint on it.

    Can you not get firefox on iphone? ( As on android)

  • @DanielM said: Can you not get firefox on iphone? ( As on android)

    I would be happy if I could tell my iPhone that I want another browser/email-client to be the default one. Let alone Firefox.

    Works fine on my mum's iPhone, are you on iOS5? I've installed the firefox app but never actually tried it..

  • I've iOS 5.0.1 here and you can't set another browser/email-client to be the default one.

  • cough You can if you jailbreak I believe. I doubt this is still up to date but:

  • Yea, I had a jailbreak on my 2G back in the days. It makes your iPhone feel like its completely based on Java. Slow like hell.

  • Works on my Desire HD with the stock browser.

  • Why would you want to change the email client on your iPhone, it's not like Outlook Express.

    I have a 4S, so there's no current jailbreak, but right now I don't see a reason for one

    Maybe you can help me then: I'm trying to sign my messages with my PGP key. I didn't find any possibility to do that with the built-in email-client to date.

    Why did you even buy Apple in the first place, then? Their products are designed for people that will never know what a PGP key is, let alone use one.

    @Aldryic said: Why did you even buy Apple in the first place, then?

    I buy them since more than 10 years. Their stuff simply works. For my personal use it's exactly that what I want. I don't want to care about drivers, crazy installation routines, compatibility issues within the product line etc. I'm serious enough though to not use them for business use. But that has other reasons.

  • I have to admit that a replacement ipod touch is on my xmas list as well. @Aldryic if you can point me to an mp3 player that also will allow me to pull email, play the occasional game, view web and read a book in something larger than 2 square inches, please feel free to do so.

    And be cheaper than $239 or whatever the current price is for an 16gig. (The old one was an 8gig and too small.)

  • Yes, while I do harbor a dislike of Apple, that does not apply to this topic. You both are wrong.

    @kylix, I don't question your preferences. I simply wonder why you didn't do your research before purchasing an expensive toy that doesn't do what you want to do. Or, if you are happy with your decision to purchase it, why complain now?

    @drmike - Do some research, maybe? Pretty much -any- smartphone from 2004 and onwards will do what you want. I have an HTC TP2 in fantastic condition that I would be willing to part with for 200. And a smartphone is merely a single option; tablets, specialty "mp3 players" (the newer Zunes, some Samsung products), all do this. You don't seriously believe that Apple is the only company to product multi-functional devices, do you?

  • Oh aye, there's no doubt that the iPod is probably the best at what it does. But make no mistake, it only does 'what it does' one very specific way, and it will not change to suit your preferences :P

    I'm a customization freak (severe OCD, however you want to call it... hence why I use fluxbox and KDE). With apple products so -limited- in what they can really do outside of a very specific scope, combined with my absolute contempt for any company as apathetic towards its clients as Apple is, and that is pretty much the sum of my bias against them.

  • Totally agree Aldryic. I had a chance to get an iPhone 4 instead the iPod but I don't like iOS for MY mobile phone u_u

    But the iPod is a killer gadget to have fun =)

  • iPod Touch is actually one of the best MID device at the moment -- capacity touch screen, high res LCD, access to Apple's AppStore -- if you don't mind Apple stuff (which some of us indeed have issues with). I don't mind getting one to test mobile web apps for work, except I can't bring myself to install iTunes on my computer.

    However if you are looking for Android-based devices, you have a huge range of Chinese knock offs at very low price range, and last generation of handsets at reduced price. Not sure about US, but where I'm from heaps of people buying outright phones rather than getting carrier-subsidised phone with long term contracts. Got a Acer Liquid Metal (800MHz Snapdragon, 512MB RAM) for ~$130 + $20 for a SanDisk 16GB microSDHC -- great media player on the cheap :)

  • I prefer to purchase phones outright as well. Typically from manufacturers, though (I have a bit of a thing for HTC, haven't had a non-HTC phone in six years).

  • Since this morning the mobile layout appears to have changed. Some things look a lot worse than they used to...

  • Samsung are full of shit right now, their copying other company's. The Galaxy II looks like a obvious rip off, even the button thing down the bottom

    http://thenextweb.com/mobile/2011/10/18/ouch-samsung-caught-using-an-iphone-screenshot-to-promote-its-own-device/

    It is possible to replace the Window Manager in OS X from WindowServer to GNOME or KDE, but you loose cocoa apps unless you run it beside it

    @Aldryic why are you suggesting to me to spend more money than what I was planning on? I'm looking at an iPod Touch because it's cheaper than getting a full blown phone. I don't want a phone. People will just bug me at 3am.

    I don't have that kind of money to go out and blow $500 for a single device. That's wh I'm looking at one for $239.

    Maybe you need to do some research and review what I wrote.

  • @Aldryic said: Do some research, maybe? Pretty much -any- smartphone from 2004 and onwards will do what you want.

    @Aldryic said: I have an HTC TP2 in fantastic condition that I would be willing to part with for 200.

    I'm suggesting that you do some research, and perhaps use common sense for a change.

    Since you appear to need this hand-holding, allow me to be frank with you. Go to XDA-Developers, and other mod-based communities that do extensive work with WM and Droid phones. Browse around until you find a phone that you think would suit your desired purposes. Go to ebay, craigslist, etc to find said phone (as I already mentioned, plus re-quoted just for your convenience, I happen to have a device I would've been willing to part with for under your desired budget), purchase said phone or mobile device, and use as a PDA without activating a SIM card.

    If having to beat you with the obvious is offensive, then you have my condolances. The only other advice I can give you there is to either toughen up, or learn to read for context the first go around and avoid putting yourself in such a position.

  • I haven't tested it, but will sometime soon.

    I'm looking for a sponsored KVM VPS, but I'm not in a hurry. Just want to hear what you might offer to me
  • @Aldryic I realize that your bigotry towards me is clouding the issue but I didn't ask you to do research for me. I just asked for a link because it sounded like you knew what you were talking about. Excuse me for assuming that you did.

    I won't waste your time anymore.

    Thank you Tim but I'm dropping the issue. I PM'ed him like he hinted at to detail the issue and the situation but if it didn't sink in previously....

    I have better things to do anyway.

    edit: Screw it as it;s already 10. Should have left 2 hours ago anyway but was trying to get some work done.

    You know, @drmike, another option also comes to mind. If I'm understanding correctly, you're currently stuck using public hotspots to get online and get work done; with a Windows Mobile or rooted Droid phone (unlimited data is a relatively cheap option in the US), you can easily use the phone as a USB-tethered 'aircard' with little difficulty. Would beat having to hang out on park benches, and it might even be feasible to have it put under your company budget.

    (Currently using this exact setup with my netbook+HD2 while I'm at the laundromat)

    Yo dont even need root on android, there's the hotspot.

    If Mexico weren't an insecure country, everybody could use their laptops in the streets u_u.

    Even I don't use my phone too much in the street. And @netomx can verify this =(

  • netomxnetomx Member, Moderator

    Well... I am not too much in the street :P

  • @drmike -- as Aldryic has suggested, a last-gen Android phone would be more flexible and cheaper than an iPod Touch, and cell connectivity is also a bonus. You don't need the phone to be rooted -- plain vanilla Android 2.2+ all have Wi-Fi hotspot or USB tethering support. You don't need to go for the branded ones as well. Acer, ZTE, Huawei -- those all have nice phones at bargain price.
