Hey, I'm trying to figure out how the mobile skin handles resolution. If you use TD on an Android tablet or phone, which skin is/was the default for you? The mobile skin (light blue, very simple) or the full skin (red and blue, much more complex)?

If you could tell me the skin that you see by default (not the one you switched to by choice) and what device you're using, that'd be keen. Thanks.

With my Android phone, the default for me is the full skin.

Ugh. I am so bent at Android/Google right now. Apple's method of telling the browser its display specs is so freakin' superior to Android.

I'm coming to the conclusion that there is no way to differentiate an Android phone from a tablet. What a cluster****. Fail, Google. Big, fat, FAIL.

If it makes you feel any better I'm switching to Apple when my contract is up in June.

That's what I've gathered by asking around for screenshots of the site.

This is going to require a massive re-thinking of how this site is coded.

Um, yay?

HTC Rezound, bule skin, love it.

BTW, on my iPad, when I first go to the site through Chrome, I get some kind of error "something is not right here, admin requests higher level of something....", then I hit back, then reopen and it opens.....

I don't know, it is a site to discuss sports, not airline safety.....maybe we should take it less seriously?

Brock-

I'm on a Droid Razr at the moment and it's coming up with the mobile skin when using both the chrome browser and the stock android browser. My galaxy nexus just melted a few weeks ago and it loaded up on the mobile browser as well.

Both these phones were running android 4.1.2 (Jellybean) if that makes any difference. I doubt it, but maybe.

You can come up with statistics to prove anything. Forty percent of all people know that.

Thanks. I'm going to have to buy an Android tablet just for code-checking... I'll probably wait for the new Nexus 7 tablet, which will probably be announced at Google I/O in mid-May.
