Default App Or Computer?

How do you access the Forum? What are your likes/dislikes about it?

I primarily use a laptop, but occasionally I use my new iPad. I can't say I have found anything I like about the App though.

I use the browser and the app on the iPhone, I find it easier for me to keep up with the threads faster, via the app

My son just got a smart phone the other day and is not really happy with the app, though he doesn't tend to post too much (which I find maddening on the iPad, but that has nothing to do with the app). He also says he can't listen to the podcasts on it.

I don't have a smart phone or any tablet. Just a desk top and two laptops. So, it's computer only for me.

Smartphone about 80% of the time, IPad the rest. I've used the app once, didn't care for it.

I use the browser on my eye pad 95% of the time.

I use the app on my phone to check in every now & then.

I used to use a notebook and accessed FTF via Chrome. Now I use an iPad, but I still go through Chrome to get to FTF. I like the way it works. I've had mixed results with apps. It seems they all work differently. I should try the FTF app, sometime, maybe.

Big Fingers, bad vision and a plethora of computers all add up to not so much IPAding or Smart Phoning! Im tactile and nothing really beats the feel and size of a real keyboard or the footprint and image quality of a full sized display instead of a mini screen with finger prints on it. I dont usually just write a few words (Some of you may wish I did), touch panels just dont cut it, I just get frustrated and move on to something I can do thats more productive (my wife says my FTF isnt productive at all!!!).

While I can do a lot of different things on my phone, it's very seldom the ideal tool. It's something I tolerate until I can get to a real computer.

I usually use my computer to access the forum but I will on my cell some if I"m out and about. My wife does not drive (she just doesn't want to do it) so I'll use my cell when I'm waiting for her to come out.
But even with my cell I don't use the app. I don't care for the layout so much so I use my mobile Firefox browser. I think I do this more for familiarity. It looks the same just smaller.
