In general, there are a ways of experiencing and using BA forums via a mobile device, depending on the kind of device you got, and the browsing capabilities of the device.
Option 1: Tapatalk for Iphone/Android/Blackberry/Nokia smartphones
This is a cooperation with the provider www.tapatalk.com
which are porting Vbulletin forums into an Iphone look.
Very easy to use, looks very good, and works very well indeed.
: Full functionalty only with Tapatalk's full version, which costs 2.99 USD in the Iphone App store, and the same on Android's Market.
Same applies for the other smartphone app stores.
Free version can be downloaded without some functionality.
You only got "Read only" with the free version, meaning you can not reply to forum messages in the free version.
Check for yourself at www.tapatalk.com
Option 2: Auto-detection of skins (text based or default)
BA forum currently got 2 skins. "Default" which is the normal PC view, and "Mobile2", which is a text based view, more like a WAP type of view, no images, only text.
We have installed autodetection of mobile devices.
1. Ordinary phones
"Old" mobile phones without good browsing capabilities will be detected as a device which will automatically get the text based forum view (Mobile2 skin).
2. Iphone/Android/Ipad, etc
More advances phones, typically smart-phones like Iphone, different type of Android based phones, and also Windows Mobile /CE based phones will see the default forum view (Default-skin), BUT they got the ability to change their skin if they want to, manually, but chosing the desired skin in the bottom left of the forum.
3. PC/Mac, etc
Ordinary PC-viewers will default see the "Default-skin", but can manually change to the text based ("Mobile2") skin if they want, by manually changing the drop down in the low left of the forum.
Note that there are many types of smartphones, and sometimes some of them may be detected as "non-smartphones".
If so, let me know via PM, or as postings in this thread, and I will add rules that fixes this.
At the moment I dont have the complete overview of all the different user agent strings needed, but it will come good.
