Hi guys.


Is there a Geekzone app for Android, or a mobile version of the website?


When I go to on my mobile it loads the desktop version.

A while ago there used to be a Mobile Website however it was retired as a lot of people were using the Desktop Website on Mobile due to how you could do more stuff with it. Desktop Website also was a lot faster on Mobile then the Mobile Site if I remember rightly as well.


If you use a Web Browser that supports proper text reflow and resizing then it should look good.










I have switched off the mobile version now. All pages redirect to the desktop version. When on mobile the rich text editor is automatically disabled (although I understand some mobile browsers support it).


The main reason is feature parity. I have fixed faults and added features to the main site but not reflecting this on mobile.

That RSS feed icon at the top of the Discussions column on the home page is quite good to keep up to date with posts.


Unfortunately I have never found a browser that resizes the text in the actual posts that lets me read them easily.



For Android: Opera browser.
