    Accessing from a mobile device

    There are two main ways to access the forums from a mobile device, such as a phone or tablet.

    Mobile Skin
    There is a style available which is optimised for phones and tablets. It should appear automatically if you access using a mobile, if not you can activate it using the style picker at the bottom left of every page or going directly to http://m.motorsportforum.com

    Smart Phone App
    The recommended forum app is Forum Runner this can be downloaded from the Apple and Google app stores. Simply search for Motorsport Forums in there, then login using your usual username and password. If you haven't already registered you can do so through the app.

    In addition to Forum Runner we also support TapaTalk for iOS, Android and Blackberry and Board Express for Windows Phone 7

    We've now fixed the problem which meant the app would show now unread threads when logging in.

    Any chance of having a dedicated mobile URL rather than it just being a style?
    Rule 1 of the forum, always accuse anyone who disagrees with you of bias.I would say that though.

    There is a new version of the tapatalk app available for iPhone.

    New features include a quick reply box at the bottom of the thread view.

    By default the Latest Threads view will categorise posts into forums, if you want to go back to the old thread by thread view then tap the 'Unread' tab.

    In order for threads to load properly make sure Loading Behaviour is set to First Unread

    The forums can now also be accessed via Forum Runner which is an app for iOS and Android. Search for Motorsport and Motorsport Forums will be in that list.

    This is in addition to Tapatalk for iOS, Android and Blackberry and Board Reader for Windows Phone 7.

    Which is best? Skin or one of the apps?

    Apps; as the skin isn't working properly at the moment.

    One thing to keep in mind, the current version of Tapatalk on iPhone v1.13 is very unstable. I've talked to the developers and they say there's a new version waiting for approval in the app store right now. But you can still use Forum Runner!

    The first post has been edited to reflect that we now have a new mobile skin to use directly with mobile browsers.

    Plus we are now recommending Forum Runner as the best app to use to access the forums, as it now has native support in vBulletin. Tapatalk will still be supported of course.
