I can tell you I have pulled up FM on my Treo when out fishing. It takes a while to load and sift through though as it loads like a normal web page.

I know there has been some talk of this recently among the admins. It seems that most people are able to read the boards, but different phones with different software aren't always able to post.

I'm not sure where the higher-ups stand on this, but I know it hasn't gone unnoticed.

I chuckle a little to think people are checking the site, even when they are out fishing or hunting. If I had a smart phone I would probably be doing it from the deer stand.

I would use the "contact us link" at the bottom of the page, you will get the info first hand!

If I had a web phone I would be looking at this site on it, that's for sure. Possibly in a store isle or checking for ideas for different tactics while fishing.

Works OK from my Blackberry. Its a lot of scrolling, but workable.

I like the idea of reading while fishing though laugh

Yeah, a WAP site would be fantastic and it would only fuel the addiction that much more. LOL. I think the side bar on the left makes it harder for mobile devices, and users, to browse on a smart phone/pda. Lot of scrolling to get to the meat of the page.

A while back I was having issues with my locator while I was out fishing but couldn't remember the button sequence to do a hard reset on the device. Pulled out the Blackberry and within a few minutes I had my answer while sitting in the middle of the lake. Pretty amazing at times what a person can do today.

I can tell you it was handy on opener this year being on Leech. We were able to get out Saturday morning without issue and I wanted an ice update on other parts of the lake. Found out some boats had been caught in some ice and that ice was still an issue in some areas.

Also good to check some reports when in for lunch/dinner/cold ones.....or planning the next days attack. Extra info always helps.....at least I like to believe it helps! shocked

I get it on my centro. Takes some time, but I can pull it up and post if I want. I've checked it while out fishing before. It's an addiction I tells ya!!!! Would be nice to see mobile. I'm sure it will come at some time as smart phones are just getting more and more popular.

*raising hand* I plead Guilty to the charges! Guilty I tell you!

was easier on a Blackjack before the HSOforum remodel, however, both before and after it's helped me with the waiting, both on the water and in the tree on quite a few occasions. wink

I for one would welcome most heartily a WAP version of FM.

I use it on an Ipod Touch as well, would be great to see it enabled for a mobile browser though.

I just got a blackberry and use " Opera mini".It let's you see the whole web page at once in micro size print so you can get past all the banners and such. Then you can enlarge the section you want to read.It is still a lot of scrolling but it is better than without it imho. It also let's me go to sites that are too big to download in the normal screen. (like hsolist).
