Is it possible to automatically go to the last page in a thread instead of the first?

If you tap on the triangle icon rather than thread title, it will take you to new posts.

The tap target is a bit small at the moment

When you have MacRumors as a webapp on the homescreen, tapping the Forums link still kicks you to Safari.

This needs to be fixed.

New mobile version of MR!

The old WAP Forums are gone! This is much better as it seems MR went for a Mobile VB solution!

I played around with this tonight. I was able to get it to not leave the webapp on some links, but overall the webapp version felt bad.

So I removed the webapp flags from the page. If you resave your homepage bookmark, it will not load as a regular safari bookmark.

I think the experience is better, since there's a Back button etc...

Yes it is. It sounds like that is something you're looking into then, right?

I like it, replacing tapatalk for now since the mobile site honors my exclude forums by ID setting.

Edit: I had to get the New Posts link from the full site and use it while on mobile to get new posts. There should be a link to new posts within the mobile site.

Can we get the &exclude= added to the New Posts link? It work on the full site, just not the mobile.

Just got around to using it, and it's a pleasure to use! The readability, the usability, I like it very much!

The new forum is great! I live how slick it looks and buttons/links are finally big enough to press without having to zoom in. (fat weener fingers)

However, is it just me or are we unable to Select text for Copy/paste on other people's posts?

I love the look of the new theme, I've only got one gripe.

On my iPhone 4S (5.1) if I let the screen rotate it sends me all the way back to the top of the page. Not necessarily a huge deal, but it is quite frustrating if I'm reading through posts while I'm at work, where I'm frequently interrupted.

The site should detect if you are on a mobile device or not and show the correct format. If you want to switch formats, simply click on the link at the very bottom of the page (Mobile Version or Full Site) and you can switch between them.

Would it be possible to speed up the scrolling effect? It seems much slower than other apps and websites. I feel like I have to flick the screen too many times to get to the bottom of the pages.

Thanks!
