I'd check it out on an app for my iphone, but doing it on the phone web drives me crazy! (Like most web browsing)

Ditto--would check it on my phone more but its so small and not really good for viewing on a tiny screen.

Agree. It isn't my primary choice, but it works in a pinch. Also, don't limit your choice based on just threads. Q&As are easier to read, but still not my choice. More than once though I went to the Alphabet Soup on my phone to get a reference.

Like everyone, I've used the web-based version on my phone (I get PMs delivered to my email & I click on the link to respond).

& I've reviewed the Alphabet Soups as well.

The font is a little easier to read on my iPad & I was even able to "stalk" someone at a conference because I saw it pulled up on their iPad as well.

An app would be fabulous if possible.

It was nice to meet you.

State of confusion
I think we discussed an app on Facebook on a BOL page a while back, like others I use my phone in a pinch, but if there WAS an app I would use it all the time.

If you do an app please make it available for Windows phones too!

Although I wouldn't prefer it on my iPhone, if it was on an iPad or other similar tablet, that'd be good.

There is an app that can get you a coupon for a car wax.

For those with tablets, are you interested in an app? With my iPad I just use the browser and it's not hard to navigate plus I'm not installing needless apps or learning a different way to use the site.

I would be interested in an app for cell phones vs. a tablet. I'm constantly zooming in on my phone to read stuff.

I use the regular browser on my iPad with no problem - but it would be nice to have an App for my iPhone, since I carry that thing around with me more.

My IPad is a new addition to my arsenal. I've accessed BOL the traditional way a few times; not sure what advantage an app would be.

My phone is a Blackberry so I can get bank e-mails on it. No apps allowed.

Mostly at work on my PC, on my Tablet on the long train commute to the office and in my Home PC as I have a bigger and sharper screen that makes for good viewing.

I'd love to have an app for Android. I use my tablet a lot when I'm on the road without my laptop and I'll use my phone out of desperation, but it would be awesome to get to Alphabet Soup and the threads without having to start at Google.

Definitely PC at work, but am using my iPad more and more out of the office. Much easier than a laptop.

Reading the text on my smartphone is not really a problem, but I definitely have to zoom in to click links when they are close together otherwise I will invariably click the wrong one.

Where the Green Grass Grows
Mostly my work computer. If I'm doing research on a large project -- I've stolen my hubbys MyFi card and used my laptop -- but if I'm in a reg jam and need an answer to a question while I'm at a conference -- I have used my iphone. Not ideal.

Thanks for thinking about all the possibilities!
