So, earlier today I was waiting for the bus, and I had some time to kill, so (being the geek I am) whipped out my iPhone and went on to the NG forums. I had 3G (a very fast cell speed) and it took about 50 seconds to load, due to the massive amounts of pictures and other crap that makes the sight look pretty. On a regular computer, that's great, but on a phone, it sucks. So, I think that NG should have a mobile sight for phones. Other sites have one, and it is so helpful. Due to the fact that no phone can have flash player installed on it (unless its hacked), there is no need for a flash portal, or audio portal page. So I guess just the news and the forums (and later the chat). So what do you guys think?


thanks to Lorkas for the sig idea and the base of the sig.

I guess that is true, so then just a simpler web page for it.

You can try going to loband.org. It can improve loading speeds on dial-up and DSL connections, and possibly 3G services.

That helps by just loading the basic HTML, which is a little too simple. No images. And although that is really cool, and I might use it for other non-mobile sights, having a mobile sight is still much better.
Thanks though, that sight is cool!

Would be cool to use my new prepaid 3g phone to go on a mobile newgrounds.

Staff has mentioned that there may be an iPhone app in the works. Not exactly the same thing, but close.

I think the staff might make a sort of twitter app for Newgrounds. I think Tom wanted/wants something like that.

Let's all be like Twitter, how original.
I'd much rather have an app that thanks your mom when she blows me.
