Twins Daily was a bit tricky to navigate on smartphones. While the full version is great for desktop browsing, it left something to be desired on your Android/iPhone/iPod devices.
Well, that has changed. Some of you may have noticed that when browsing on your smartphone, you're automatically redirected to a new version of the site that is designed specifically for the requirements of a smaller screen. Most (if not all) of the same functionality is there, now it's just smaller and simpler to use. This skin should be automatically enabled on any Blackberry, Windows Phone, iPhone, iPod, or Android smartphone. iPad and Android tablet users should still be redirected to the full site to take advantage of the extra real estate on tablet screens.
To navigate the mobile site, click on the square icon (the one with more squares in it) near the top right of the screen just to the right of the obvious-but-there-anyway text "Navigate Site". From that navigation box, you should be able to use almost any function found on the Twins Daily site.
Should you ever need to view the main site again, just scroll down to the bottom of the screen and click "Full Site". If you want to go back to the mobile version, again scroll down to the bottom of the page and on the bottom left of the footer, you'll see "Visit Mobile Site" with a drop-down menu. Choose "Twins Daily Mobile" and you'll be directed back to the mobile version of the site.
As with everything of this nature, the mobile Twins Daily is a work in progress. The skin has been briefly tested on an Android phone, iPhone, and iPad but given the overwhelming options out there to users today, there's no way we can test it on every browser and hardware configuration available for purchase so if you see something that's wrong and/or confusing, just let us know. We appreciate any and all feedback you might have on the skin and how to improve the experience. Comment below if you have something to say about the skin or just want to call me names. That's cool, too.
