    A member recently mentioned that she couldn't see much on her cell phone. Do you use a cell phone (or small-screen tablet) to view this website?

    Is it easy to follow thread discussions? Do you find it easy to look for earlier discussion topics? Do you have difficulties using a phone?

    good to know :) Maybe it's just me who's too old to get on with the small screen of a phone. o_O

    I use my cell phone to access the site when I'm not near a computer (either my laptop at home, or my desktop at work), but I much prefer to access it via computer (and do so more often than via phone), as it just looks better and is much easier to navigate on the computer. I find the same to be true of most websites.

    I use phone. The website looks easy to me to navigate and I don't see any difficulty of viewing it.

    Interesting how we each see things very differently. ;) So I've now taken another look using first a 5.5" Motorola cell phone and then a Sony 10" tablet.

    The phone is OKish albeit the screen's a bit titchy and narrow, needing a deft touch when touching, or typing in, boxes and there's some stuff missing from the right compared with a computer screen. The tablet's like a smaller screen version of my laptop with everything onscreen in the same place. But I'd hate to have to use a touchscreen keyboard that occupies half the view of this site when I'm composing and/or editing. I refer frequently to the posting I'm replying to and edit my own postings extensively; I'd find that irksome on a phone or tablet.

    I guess you eventually grow accustomed to whatever you use but for me it's too much of a faff and a 'proper' size screen with a mechanical keyboard works best for me.

    I do not use my cell phone to access ALF. I occasionally use my Samsung tablet when I'm in bed; otherwise, it's the laptop.
    May I ask the reason for this survey?

    Curiosity about how well information displays on various platforms and who uses what.
