I use an iPhone a lot to access the forum and also an iPad. I don't have a problem with it running slowly. However, I am aware that everything takes longer on a phone because it just doesn't have the same capabilities as a computer.
I do use Tapatalk, but often resort to Safari because you can't do everything through Tapatalk - you can't, for example, see IM messages. Opera is an alternative browser to Safari, but I can't say how good it is.
Can I just back Bobda up here and say that as a Mod/Admin Team we are unpaid volunteers who are often sneaking a quick glance at the forum during the working day (as I am here) or fitting in our duties between family life. We are not there at the click of fingers to answer problems. It's extremely unfair to have a go because we are unable answer your question as fast as you think we should!
Johnboy, I think Bobda is right - he was only trying to suggest ways as to why your phone was loading the forum slower than you hoped. You've over-reacted and misinterpreted his help. He never threatened or insulted you. And neither, for the record, am I now
