    I am wondering what your preference is in using this forum on an iPhone. Do you use the mobile version or do you switch back to desktop mode? I use desktop mode. I find it easier to navigate. But the text is smaller.

    Just use the mobile. It seems to be faster and easier to read.

    I switch between both. Tapatalk doesn't work for me anymore after the latest update. Always looses the connection.

    I use mobile safari. Actually, I so the vast majority of my web surfing on my iPhone.

    The mobile site experience overall has gotten soooooo much better over the past few years.

    This poll is horrible. There is no option for both.

    Do you surf macrumors forums on desktop or mobile version on iPhone?

    I am a beta tester of tapatalk. They really are bad and slow with fixing problems and adding new feature.

    I use Tapatalk Pro for MacRumors on my iPhone 5 and iPod touch 5. I rarely use the desktop version.

    If anyone had a requested feature you can pm me or ask in this thread.

    I use the desktop view. Don't like the mobile sites. The whole point of the iPhone and such is to have the full web experience.

    Both. The mobile version on safari and full version using Atomic Browser to vote on polls since they don't show up in the mobile version.

    Mobile site. Hate zooming in and out. Mobile site works well on Macrumors except for the lack of polls.

    I mostly use the mobile version until I can't do certain tasks like multi-quote, smilies multi picture uploads, polls, etc. Then I switch to desktop mode to accomplish those tasks. I use Tapatalk for quote and pm notifications, but I hate the UI so that's it for that.

    Sucks that we need 3 different experiences to use this site. Makes me think their might be a better way... Hmmm. An app, maybe? I'd use the *rollseyes* smiley but...
