Horrible iPhone presentation

It is nearly impossible to view thread titles in the new format. What were you guys thinking

  1. i agree. If the idea behind this (horrid) new design was to attract "millenials" as someone on another thread suggested, then they've done a piss poor job of it. Make sure the damn thing works for mobile users. But they haven't bothered to fix any of the problems that people have pointed out to them (ad nauseum) for months on iphones and other devices.

      This seems shortsighted as many people only use their phones nowadays (even me and I am definitely a codger)

    2. This post was the first thing I read this morning when I grabbed my iPhone. But the font size had reverted to what it was before the format change. Checking a few times since then, it seems to be going back and forth between the old font and the much too small font. Are you seeing that too?

        I was just going to post that the fonts keep changing, even within the same thread

          That big and little font within a thread has been with us for a few months. Someone reported it here, I believe, and I know that I've seen it myself.

          No, and I hope they keep the newer, smaller font as it is better to read the discussions. Overall the new iphone format is much better to read than the older one.

            What I hope will happen is that there will be user choice in font style. Then each of us can pick the one we prefer to see.

              I am not aware that there is any forum which lets you choose font size on an Iphone (but I might be wrong)

          2. re: Melanie Wong

            Yesterday it was changing . Today only the horrid new thing.

              Hey guys, checking in on this as we'd like to get it improved ASAP. We're generally looking at the iPhone on iOS7 in the office and not seeing the font size inconsistencies.

              Are you still seeing this and can you let us know what version of the operating system you're using? Also, are you in Safari or another browser?

                Iphone, IOS7, safari. Ill post a pic from iPhone in a minute

          3. In addition, I noticed on another Site Talk thread that people are talking about an "i" next to board name as the new location of stickies. On my iPhone, I see no such "i" anywhere.

              Checking my phone, I'm not seeing anything that would be "i" equivalent. Good catch.

                1. re: LNG212

                  Announcements (aka stickies) have never been visible on the mobile site, but we'll think about how best to implement this in the future.

                    You know, since most people these days use their phones, that really doesn't make a whole lot of sense.
