Updated Smartphone Feedback Thread

We're pleased to announce that we have launched a new smartphone view on the site, in addition to the recently added mobile view in the last upgrade. This version has been designed to have a cleaner look, to fit really nicely into mobile (iPhone, Android) browsers, and unlike most normal web based skins will also include features that are normally reserved for desktop or phone applications. We built this as we realize you all spend more time today on your phones on the forum than you did 2 years ago, and we want to get the mobile view to a place where you can do everything (and more!) that you can do on desktop.

A few notes as I know many of you may have questions:

* This does not replace the free or paid in-apps that you have, such as any mobile apps. This is web-only.
* This new skin will only show when you access the site from a modern (Android 4+, iPhone) phone. It will not show for older phones or for tablets, blackberries or windows phones.
* Please give us some time as we work through bugs. Give it a try, give us feedback in our mobile thread url, and give it a chance. Every change needs time to get used to!​


If you visit the site from your mobile phone, you'll get the new view automatically. You can login, post, reply, upload photos, view your private messages and more. You can also use the legacy mobile view by choosing the top left menu and Exit Enhanced Mobile Mode.

The feedback thread for any bugs, etc, please post below.

**Please let use know the device, software version, and browser being used if reporting any issues.

Thanks!

Also, if you prefer the desktop view look for this button in the top corner. This will open the menu to allow you to pick desktop view. If you want the mobile view back you need to clear your browser cookies.
This Button ->

Re: Updated Smartphone Feedback Thread

For the past couple of days I am no longer able to use the jeepgarage app on my android. i get error;

The remote server sent an unknown response. This could be a result of the forum software plugin being outdated or having a conflict.

It worked until late last week. My phone is a Pixel XL with Android 7.1.1.

Help!

Looks like they are working on a new App, or adding Jeep Garage to the AutoGuide app.

I've been getting the same error (Samsung Note4) for some time now. Today, I uninstalled the application, reset my phone, and re-installed. Still no joy...

Not sure if that was directed at me, but:
Samsung Note4
Android version: 6.01
Patch level: February 1st, 2017
Kernel version:3.10.40-8932341

Has been returning the error for weeks now.

Re: Updated Smartphone Feedback Thread

Though I'd add my 2 cents here, I tried to login to the Jeep garage this morning with my smart phone.. I'm using a android LG rebel phone and the Opera web browser.. The web site/forum was very small and I couldn't see the post. I'm not sure if there's any difference if I was to use the smart phone app and will decide if I want to go this route at a later date. But I was wondering, sites like twitter, tumblr & instagram all have been set up as to allow smart device viewing which has been scaled according to your device or a smart device. is there any plans to make the forum adjust to this format instead of having to download the app?.
