Mobile version of the Autodesk Discussion Groups (new April 29)

We’ve launched a mobile optimized version of the Autodesk Discussion Groups.  When you visit using your smartphone or tablet you will see a simplified view of the Discussion Groups and that supports all of the core functions of the desktop version - even using the new Kudos feature!  You can also create a mobile-specific signature in the Mobile tab of "My Settings.

What if I prefer interacting with the ‘Full’ or desktop version?
We’ll automatically direct mobile visitors to our ‘Mobile’ version but you will still have the option to use the ‘Full’ or desktop version - just click the ‘Full’ link in the footer:

If you have any questions, comments, concerns or feedback about the Mobile version of the Discussion Groups experience feel free to let us know.

Enjoy!

Works well for me, especially the background colors for last and solution posts, and the single click auto login. Thanks for turning it on.

This also works great on my Blackberry Torch.  Keep up the good work on the forums!

Hi - Some constructive critisim:  regarding the UI design, you need to remember that you're working on a mobile platform where screen reale-state is always limited.

A) You've got a lot of space taken up for three items.

B) Your thread gaps are too large.

C) Your Header/footer contain redundant information. 

 

I think where mobile platforms succed, they are minimal.  The interface "works" right now, yes, but in terms of design, still has a bit to go.

 

Regards,
Anthony
