Now that I have the Blackberry Playbook, I tend to use it much more than even my MacBook Pro.  I would say, I access TMLfans via:

50% Playbook
30% MacBook Pro
20% Iphone 4s

I don't like using the phone sometimes because having to zoom in can be a pain, I find Tapatalk makes it much easier to read.

I should also add that I almost never actually post anything from mobile devices, that is almost always done from the MacBook or Desktop.

I'm with you here. :)   As much as I enjoy using my iPhone 4s, the screen is too small even with the zooming/panning feature.  Thankfully, I use my computer glasses which slightly magnify.  Don't need them all the time, but they do come in handy.

Mostly on my computer.  Sometimes get a fix with my LG One X.  But as others commented, browsing via a phone can be a real pain.  Have to zoom in real tight to click,'Show unread posts since last visit', then zoom out to read.

I rarely use a computer anymore, for what I do, it is much more convienent to use my ipad/blackberry. Seriously considering the switch to an iphone next year if blackberry doesn't drastically improve with OS10.

At work on my laptop and at home on the iPad. Plus if something big is going on I will check in on the iPhone as well - Tapatalk makes that pretty easy.

Hi Rick,

Yeah, thanks.  Hmmm.  Seems all over the place, but the common theme is most people use either a tablet or cell phone at least part of the time.

Designing sites to make sure they are mobile ready will be key, and monetizing it will be a priority...

Thanks everyone!

So does this mean if you do not own a tablet or "smart" phone, then we won't be able to access the site?

Oh no, there'll be a plugin that automatically senses if you're on a mobile device - so you'll automatically get a scaled down version of the site.

Seems good to me.

Odin, how does TMLfans work on the IPad?  I've stopped using family member's Ipad (first generation IPad) because each time I need to "modify" my post, nothing works sufficiently well.  That certainly wasn't the problem with the old site.  This started happening with this new software-overhauled site.


Anyone else have a problem with that, too?

I hope an option to still access the regular version of the site will exist. As a rule of thumb I hate websites that try to create a mobile version of their site and always click goto full site.

On my Iphone 4s, I try to use the full site option as much as I can, depending on the website, if that option is featured.

Thanks, Ryan. :)   Guess it's going to be time soon to consider upgrading to an IPad 2 or 3.    The first gen IPad is getting seemingly slow, still works well, but, as with everything technological, a leap forward wouldn't hurt.

I just got mine back and I missed it. Yeah, I suppose it's probably the Lada of tablets but it suits me fine. I've got portable internet and all the books I can handle and really, that's 90+% of what I'd use any tablet for anyway. IMO, they were already a great value. For those who don't have a tablet, I'd totally suggest grabbing one at that price.
