My Device: Blackberry Q10

Why can't this forum be an app, or a mobile site?

Well, I'm a newbie to the Blackberry (Q10) and still not sure if I'm going to keep it.  But, I was wondering why this forum can't be turned into an app so I can read it and post to it from my phone.  Or, I don't know, maybe create a mobile version of this forum that's designed for mobile browsing? I attempted it on my Q10, but the screen is too small and no amount of pinching and stretching the text made it easier to read. 

 

It just seems kind of strange that Blackberry has this site for mobile users, and yet they don't even have a mobile version to read from their own Blackberry browser.  So...just a suggestion.  Unless there IS an app for this and I just haven't found it in Blackberry World.

Hello Sydneyp...

 

Very good your bounding Friend, your suggestion ... but since this would depend on application developers or application developers who take the trouble to create an application to chat directly from the website forums from the mobile ...

Hi sydneyp,

 

Unfortunately there is no Mobile App for the Blackberry Forums, However there is a mobile version of the site if it isn't accessible by the built in browser I would recommend downloading and trying another browser like Opera this will give you access to the Mobile version of the forums

 

I hope this helps :smileyhappy:

Thanks, Steve. I will try Opera this evening and let you know. There have been some other sites I've gone to where I can't get to the mobile site using my Blackberry, so, hopefully, Opera will work with them, too!

Re: Why can't this forum be an app, or a mobile site?

Well, Steve, I tried it.  Downloaded the file called minibb.jad from the Opera site.  Got a message saying I can't open on my Blackberry.  So, I looked for a list of supported devices and the Q10 is not one of them.  I dunno, I really like the phone, but things like this....frustrating!!!

That is great idea to have app for this site! But The mobile site works wonders on my Z10 no problems!

Hmm, that's interesting. Maybe because the Z10 has a bigger screen, and you can also view the site in landscape? It just doesn't come through well on my tiny screen. For me, if I try to stretch the text out so I can read it, I can't get a full line of text on my screen.

 

Actually I did find a solution.  I use my Ipod Touch to visit the blackberry.com site.  The mobile site comes through beautifully on the Touch. Kind of sad, though, that I have to use an Apple product to view the Blackberry site.

There is an app. The forum is part of the BlackBerry Community app.
