It kind of sucks to use the forum on a mobile phone. I have the gas buddy app for android which rocks and makes reporting prices so simple. Kind of wish "tapatalk" worked on these forums. Would make posting on the forums much easier. Currently, its a lot of zooming and scrolling to make post/thread.

Kind of a chicken or the egg thing. Since the way it is currently configured, that is all you can really do, what did you expect?

Hi bmxstud,

Thanks for posting questions in the forums.

Currently, the GasBuddy apps are designed to be a simple as possible: find prices, report prices.

There has been much discussion over which other features should or should not be included in the apps. It's likely that forums will not be included at this point, since the vast majority of mobile users are not seeking to use it for this purpose. Most users open the app, check/report prices and close it again shortly after, without clicking/tapping around much elsewhere.

The full website, not being designed for mobile devices may not look or function well on them.

Hopefully, as time goes on, we will have better ways to accommodate mobile device users. Thanks for your patience.

In answer to your question - no. You will need to access the full site from a browser on your phone.
