How do you reply with an iPhone?

The new design has no obvious way to reply to posts while on my iPhone.


  1. Click to Upload a photo (10 MB limit)
  1. you have to hover over the bottom left to bring up the menu to reply

    or rather click sorry, not hover, hovering is on the laptop

    and you can click anywhere on the post it seems, not just the bottom

      1. I'm experiencing the same as Hamster - even if I click the lower left corner of the response I want to reply to.

        Sporadically, more often not, it refuses to expand responses already read when I click the "+" button. The ole "sometimes" problem.

        A week ago it all worked. Now, not. I've tapped, I've swiped - it's just not cooperating. Any ideas??

        I cannot swear I'm logged in - I found the login screen last week, I know don't remember exactly how. On the DFW category screen, I believe it's the "pencil" button at the top of the screen? Tapping it highlights it and takes me to a blank screen with just the category of D/FW, which I'm in.

          Using safari or chrome or another browser?

              It works fine on my ipod fourth generation in both safari and chrome. Have you tried another browser or restarting your iphone at all?

                I'll try restarting the phone. No, I won't change browsers for Chow access - lol! It's odd that it worked last week and not now. I suspect a change was made affecting 3gs functionality.

                I was going to add that tapping "topical boards" topic from the chowhound "all topics" index - I'm stopped.

                I can can get to a certain point through out the site and then the brakes are put on.

                  Restart did not work. Thanks for your suggestions though.

            1. Good luck trying to find or follow threads though. I am very frustrated with trying to follow/read the threads. The boxes are too light to see which are indented under another and I get very frustrated trying to read or follow a topic on my i-phone.

                I don't mind the colours I just wish I could see more posts on the front page
