Any plans on developing on the mobile platform? A mobile website or an app? Loading up the pc website takes some time & is heavy on my android. Tapatalk 2 costs Rs. 155 :(.

Opera Mini sucks big time man..I don't get to see the real website, it goes to Opera's servers first. I don't want that, why would I pay Rs. 9k for this mobile when I can have that in a 4k device. I have Opera Mobile. Can I turn off images for this particular site only? If not, no use, since I visit other websites also from Opera Mobile since its my primary browser.
BTW, this site un-viewable on the stock Android Browser. Forget, Firefox since resources are less (512 MB RAM :x ).

Are there problems with how td and tdf display on the mobile? Tdf had a mobile theme that has to be user selected, so try that. As for td, those side ads are supposed to go away when the page loads on a mobile. The new td we are working on will not have any problems like this obviously.

Sir, the default themed website runs laggy whereas mobile sites of TOI, The Hindu, Facebook,etc. run smooth in my smartphones' Opera Mobile browser. Can the themes be device specific or is there a separate mobile domain for TDF? I access TDF both from my smartphone as well as my desktop PC. Upon selecting the Mobile skin, it sets that for both the platforms.

Ok will look into auto- setting of forum theme.

For TD try m.thinkdigit.com though its supposed to take that by default based on the resolution. Do you have desktop mode turned on in the browser or something?

Sir , m.thinkdigit.com opens Digit. I tried that on Opera Mobile, FireFox for Android , FireFox on my desktop PC as well . I have checked the Settings in Opera Mobile & they are set to Mobile mode: Settings->Advanced->User Agent->Mobile. There is also such Setting in FireFox For Android: Settings-->>Request Desktop Site ( & it is unchecked). Also, FireFox on Desktop PC opens Mobile site of Facebook upon entering m.facebook.com but not in the case of m.thinkdigit.com as stated earlier.

Ok will look into it. Opera mobile, right? What model phone? Edge or 3G? Sometimes when the page is still loading, those ads on the side appear, which again disappear when it completes loading.

However on a mobile browser it's supposed to show the mobile td site by default. Only forum skin has to be manually selected to show mobile version. Just tested on 2 bb10 devices, the TD site loads mobile CSS by default. Will try and test using whatever device you have in a few days.

Yes, sir. It does show the mobile site by default on mobile upon selecting the mobile skin. It also started showing the mobile site on desktop as soon as I selected mobile skin. But I changed it to default skin & the desktop site was back on desktop pc. Although , on mobile it continues to run mobile site :).

My mobile is Samsung Galaxy Ace Duos S6802 & is running EDGE (my plan is expiring today & i will be moving to 3G now :) ). The ads do disappear when the site is fully loaded on both platforms.

Include all Fast Track PDFs, just like the entire digit PDFs given in the next month's DVD. i think PDFs of few were given some time back but don't remember which and when.

imo, the best thing will be to put all PDFs (of that year) - digit + dgt + fast track in anniversary dvd.

Moreover, it would be better to put a list of DVD contents right here in the forum. that way, it will be easy to search n find dvd contents instead of checking them one by one (i have zillions of them and am gonna donate them soon after i decide which ones to keep)

An article on perceptual computing along with the SDK in the DVD was present in the 12th anniversary issue.
