Thanks.
We pulled the app a few months ago because it is no longer supported.

The constant refresh to the mobile site is becoming quite cumbersome. Not sure why it all the sudden started, but is there a way to change it back?

iOS9 has helped a bit, but it's still not a user-friendly experience.

This is the first I am hearing about this.

Can you tell me what specific device and what browser you're using?

I'm using an iPhone 5S and iOS9. When I switch to another app or use another window for Safari, after a certain period of inactivity, the APC site defaults to the mobile version of the site. I can request the desktop version, but this becomes more of a PITA.

It also happens during refreshing of the site, after a period of time, the site automatically reverts to the mobile site.

Hm, that sounds like it might be a cookie issue, since it starts out with mobile and then reverts.

Is your browser set to save cookies?

Really? It's been happening on my iPhone 6, latest iOS, all along.

I keep asking for a permanent mobile-opt-out option but I guess I, the user, don't really know what's good for me? I'm pretty sure the mobile site is banned according to the Geneva convention... It it ain't then it should be!

Sorry about the sarcasm but I don't see any advantages whatsoever to the mobile site.

I REALLY don't like it and wish it just went away..

I don't like the mobile version at all either. I like the ease of selecting going to the last post from the desktop version much better.

Andriod tablet, Firefox browser, Phony plugin. Set user agent to "desktop firefox" in the phony plugin.
Mobile site gone permanently.

I don't do IOS so ymmv on Ipad.

I see the benefit to the mobile site on a phone, but not on a tablet. Is there an ability to differentiate phone vs tablet on the site side?

Unfortunately we don't have this option on an iPhone or iPad.

..and exactly what benefit do you see when using mobile site on an iPhone?? I see NONE!!

What's worst, here's a comment from Brandinett (support) I found under a thread named "Tapatalk."


...The mobile version will hopefully be the primary way to interact with APC in the future but we'd like to give you all the options we can to access the site.


Primary way?? Now, that's a scary thought!!

Agreed, the lack of an "open at first new post" option in the mobile site makes it entirely worthless.
