Pleeeease will you make the site be friendly to applle IOS devices? It’s getting to the point that I’m now avoiding using it. It loads slow, screen jumps around like its having a siezure while it loads, and sometimes when it does load its missing stuff or stuff is in the wrong place.

This is the voice of part of your market slowly slipping away.

Strange I don’t have that problem.

This site is awful on iOS. It never looks the same. Crazy pics all over the place. The links are all on top of each other.

I agree. Site could use a lot of improvement on iOS. Particularly when typing responses the copy/paste function does not come pop up correctly.

Another thing that is frustrating is that buttons load slowly. Sometimes I just want to hit a button but I have to wait for a bunch of other stuff to load before the buttons will work. Sometimes when I try to click on buttons too soon it activates another link that I didn’t want to click on.

Wouldn’t know much about that stuff. Don’t really have much use for cellphones, don’t carry one, don’t let them run my life and don’t intend to. So by the way what is an IOS?

It sounds as if your Apple has a worm … !

Get rid of all your cookies and clear off any icons on the screen you don’t need. That may help somewhat.

If not, take it to a computer repair shop and they will charge you a lot and tell you that you need a new one.

Silly me for raising a computer related issue. I should’ve know it would bring out the folks who would rather bitch about the “other” brand of computer, whatever it may be. “Apple this”, and “PC or Android that”. Jesus, give me a break. I’m already sorry I brought it up.

I think that Cricket.has mentioned a bunch of times that the site is very limited in what they can do with the current software.

A better approach than “LJ hates ios” would be to write Cricket a pm and see if she has suggestions.

It wasn’t too bad before the last change. I hate having to use it in landscape mode now.

You people are guest here on a free site. You are demanding THEY change to suite you. How about you change to equipment that works on this free site.

My analogy

I invite a bunch of you to my home for a free steak dinner. When you get to my home a bunch of you start complaining that you want shrimp instead of my steak. I’ll let you guess what I’m going to tell you.

Everybody like to spend other peoples money but their own.

I’m not sure what it says about us that a simple request is spun as a ‘demand’ simply because someone else disagrees with the position. I’ve read the original post three times, and I see nothing of the sort. OP literally says please… As an IOS user, I would like to see a reader or some sort of optimization for it myself, but it’s certainly not something I demand. I still do most of my browsing on a laptop, because my aging eyes struggle with phone screens and the site is pretty difficult to use via ios. Undoubtedly however, the future is mobile, as the percentages of small device usage increases daily. I think it would be a smart move for a site like LJ to jump on this. Community is the entire reason it exists, and more and better viewing options can only grow that community.

These cell phones are just a fad, in a couple years we’ll be back to 14” CRTs.
