MobileRead mobile site gets an update

Hey everyone -

We've rolled out an improved version of our mobile website. In addition to some enhancements to the interface, the update adds a few new features you can now use on the go.

Additions include the possibility to customize various settings (you need to be logged-in to do that), as well as the automatic redirection from our non-mobile site if you are browsing from a mobile device, the ability to subscribe to individual threads, to e-mail thread links to a friend, and to search within a thread.

Settings that can be customized currently include:
  • hide/show smilies
  • hide/show quotes
  • resize/hide frontpage news images
  • convert images in posts to links
  • enable/disable the redirection of external links to a mobile transcoder
  • increase/decrease the number of threads/posts displayed on a page

Not included yet is an iPhone-specific version (which we'd like to add at some point in the future though).

I hope that with these changes, it will be even easier to access your favorite e-book community with your mobile. As usual please don't be shy to post your feedback and suggestions for improvement here.

Alex

Help! My desktop insists on using the mobile version. Won't switch back. Can't view avatars or included pics! I type in .com but it switches to .mobi. I'm stranded in teeny tiny land!

OUCH! Please use this link to switch back:

The redirection routine needs more fine-tuning... it's a tad bit too aggressive me thinks.... better to turn that feature off until it's sanitized.

Sniff. Mobile internet is so ridiculously expensive here in Switzerland as well. At least my Blackberry got WiFi; so whenever I can use a hotspot, I can save the costs.

Guess you turned it off before I could try your suggestion. Desktop works fine now -- thanks!!
I *do* like the tiny version though, so thanks for providing it.

P.S. I couldn't send a help msg from desktop either -- cuz I couldn't see the "random question" that it apparently asked. So I went to my iPhone and used the tiny version to send the above reply.

Excellent work on the customizable settings!

Alex, do you know Wurfl? It's a framework you can use to properly detect mobile devices.

My Ipod Touch has WiFI. That's a great gadget. BTW. We do have a mobile Internet flatrate costing 15 Euro here in Luxembourg. Wanna move, anyone? I use that with my Aspire One and USB modem while at work. It's rather fast, too, around 4,5 mb/s.
