I don't know how many replies and wasted minutes/hours I have spent trying to reply to a post, only to accidently tap a frigging icon, or other "thingy" that is crowding my screen.

Why does it zoom in? I zoom out only to have it zoom back closer.

It really bothers me, I only have my Android to surf the wonderful pages of ATS, but it is really getting frustrating.

As a matter of fact I hope this post isn't wasted.

I push my back button, forward button, trying to get my info back but sometimes it doesn't work.

I'm not mentally slow, but i'm not a computer/smartphone frigging expert.

I'm not against change, but if ATS is trying to change for more phone and tablet users, why all of the crowding?

I really miss my PC, but unfortunately I have to choose which outrageous bills that I wan't to pay.

Stupid technology, stupid fat fingers, stupid 3 or 4" phone screen.

Damnit it sucks.....

Not trying to offend Skeptic Overlord or Springer, but dang it's not helping mobile users. I don't like the mobile setup, so I use the PC setup on my phone.

It's crowded.

Rant over.

I like it because I don't have to open another tab to see the post I'm replying to, plus the rest of the posts on that page.

The responsiveness on the android is a bit glitchy though.

I do like how you can see the post you are replying to.

But, it is hard to try to type a reply in a timely manner on the phone.

Careful finger placement is a must.

I think I found a possible solution.

When you are posting, simply type anything and click "reply". Once your comment appears, click "edit" and it should display the format that you're used to.

I think this was the idea behind the change. Some forums still allow you to see the thread as youre posting.

Just did it without typing anything.

That is a good idea.

Thank you for the solution.

What should I put in the edit box though?

Lol...i'll think of something.

The glitch I get a lot is when I tap in the box to bring up my keyboard, it redirects me to an 'about ats' page.

I get that alot also.

My icons from the top of the page drop down low and I cannot see them against the white reply box.

Pretty frustrating.

Any chance of adding the forums to something like tap-a-talk to make it more user friendly?
