DPS Goes Mobile

One of the most requested features that we get from DPS readers is that they’d like a better experience of viewing our site on mobile devices.

As a result – in the last couple of days we’ve been testing a new mobile interface and have now launched it. So now if you arrive on DPS on an iPhone or many other mobile devices (not all at this stage) you should see something more like this. It should load faster and mean less scrolling.

If you prefer to view the site as those viewing on a computer can see it – simply scroll to the bottom of the page and flip the switch that lets you go back to viewing it normally.

Note: this is rolled out only on the blog/tutorials section of the site and not as of yet for the forum area where things are a little more tricky!

    Hi Darren,

    Great site! I am trying to get the mobile web page to work on my Samsung Jet phone, but keep getting the “computer” web page which will not let me expand the page on screen – it zooms and then immediately reverts back to full screen. Is there a different URL for the mobile web page?

    Cheers,

    Gordon
