NYSB Mobile

Do you access NYSB via mobile?

We're considering setting up a separate mobile site and I'm looking for feedback. If you do access the site by a mobile device, what problems do you encounter?

Re: NYSB Mobile

On my iPhone as I type, and I think the NYSB site runs well. I think mobile sites are already dated with today's wifi and cellular speeds.

Re: NYSB Mobile

I have no problems with the site as is on my iphone. My old phone wouldn't load it at all.

Re: NYSB Mobile

Interesting.  I also have resisted developing mobile site because I like the way the site works on my own phone.  Actually the trend in webdev is to create one site that works on all devices.  The thing about NYSB is that the BLOGGER part of the site (Home page, weather page etc) is ANCIENT (code written in 2004 I think) and the fact that it works on  variety of mobile devices has got to be some kind of coincidence. A lot of blogger sites just don't work on mobiles.  The Forum, Magazine and Ski Area Directory are much more current.

I had a blackberry which couldn't handle the way the Forum was integrated with the Blog and all I got was a blank screen on the forum page.  When I switched to the droid that issue was resolved.  Oddly on my blackberry the animated radar shots worked (were actually animated) but on my droid they don't.  That's too bad as I really like to the radar when I'm skiing and there is precip in the air.

Parts of the site I use from my phone are the weather page, ski conditions links and at times the forum. Curious about what others do via mobile.  Mobile use really jumped this year.  Last year it was about 5% of page views and this year it was more like 12%.

Re: NYSB Mobile

Current site works fine on the Android, I mostly view the forum pages.  No issues.  Agree with previous comment on not using the mobile sites from my mobile device,  I always click on the "view full site" link when offered.

Re: NYSB Mobile

Hey Harv,
I often access the site when I am on my way up or up for the weekend and I don't bring my pc along.  I did have some trouble last year trying to upload pictures from my iphone which was a bummer.  I did a couple of updates in the forum from the hill and it would have been great to be able to post from the pictures on my phone.

Re: NYSB Mobile

^^That seemed to work ok. Seemed like the biggest issue was file size. With 3G it took about 15 seconds.  Putting together an actual TR might be a bit tough though.  What was the problem that you had?
