    PM preview installed

    What does this do? Well, the default setup in your PM box just shows the message title and none of the content. So, if you, like me, have tons of PM's it makes finding a particular PM a hassle.

    Now, you can see part of the message in your inbox so you can quickly and easily find the message or search the page for a particular word you are looking for.

    Nothing major, just a simple mod to make life easier.

    I understand this would be easier for people who get tons of PM's
    To me it looks more messy then the previous view where you could only see titles.
    Guess I need some time to get used to this view.

    I can change it so that the message content only appears on mouseover but then that make searching the page useless.

    I think you just need to get used to it.

    You mean the reload button? That was there a few days before, wasn't it?
    A refresh interval of 10 sec. is not great for mobile devices though...

    I will switch to a mobile skin soon. It won't be a factor for them.

    It is not supposed to mirror the pc but give a toned down version for phones.

    Jes, I get that.
    But it says VBulletin. Nowhere does it say anything about GermanBoost.com
    And yes, really toned down... Stripped is more like it...

    But faster and better for mobile devices right?

    Yes, I know, I need to customize it a bit.

    Let's try it out for a couple days.

    I was happier with the normal website view then this.
    It feels kind of locked out.

    Sticky, I applaud the effort but this is one of the worst mobile apps I have ever seen. First off it does not ask if I want to use the mobile app, it just defaults to it. Secondly there is no icon for me to switch back to Full version, most apps offer that at the bottom of the page. Third, it is a pain in the ass to navigate, it defaults to German Boost then I have to manually scroll down through all the BMW $#@! to get to the Benz section. Last but not least it runs slower than $#@!, it takes twice as long to refresh a page or pull up a page as it did yesterday on the standard Full version. I am using a Samsung Galaxy S II with Android 2.3 which is the most up to date version on the most powerful Android phone on the market so I can't there being any compatibility issues

    This sad excuse for a website also appears on other mobile devices.
    My tablet shows the same applike view.

    It isn't an app, it is just a mobile style. The app I haven't installed because apparently the VB mobile app is a buggy piece of junk and a waste of money according to everyone running it.

    So, I thought I would try VB's mobile style but you guys don't like it so back to default.
