Feedback from a member:
I've been testing CT on android mobile for the past few weeks. Also, have had my daughter who is a CT lurker and intense mobile user looking at the site on iPhone. For FYI, I travel in Canada and USA a lot and use TELUS and VERIZON nobiule respectively. Have viewed, replied and attempted to post TR's on both of these networks in 2G, 3G and 4G:
Enhanced mobile CT is generally NOT faster to view, load or post on. In all cases the interface is notably slower to use, especially on 2G or 3G networks. Previous CT loaded, viewed quickly on lower speed networks.
Page rotations are jumpy and often result in residual text on the screen from prior rotation. Perhaps the density of mobile pages causes re-draws to overload caches and might need thinning out.
Posting Trip Reports is cumbersome, with image uploading and thumbnail embedding being almost unusable. I've just given up
Selecting out of Enhanced Mobile often stalls the application, not sure why but it is particularly tough when i'm on the USA Verizon network, even with 4G
One other observation. I've asked some CT lurkers I know, who drop in to view TR's, to try mobile view. Their feedback is at best, indifferent, at worst not positive. Much has been lost, especially for non-members, by chnaging the previous approach of loading the recent threads, sequentially, right on the home page.
