Mooney AO Mobile - INFO

What's happened to AO on yer mobile?

'Before' the change my access via my mobile was on what appeared to be a dedicated mobile phone set-up.

Now all I get is the full site, which is much slower as obviously my mobile isn't as quick as my laptop.

Is this something that will stay or will we get AO mobile back?

I was also on the WAP version before but now I have the full size AO


Sure it's slower but I'd rather have the full AO than the WAP version

Use Opera mini. This is now so much better that the crappy text only version we had before

The text version worked fine for me as I've only got a Nokia N95 8GB.

Saved me buying a paper in the morning for the train to work.
Full AO is no good for my phone as it's too slow.

Opera mini

I use this on my HTC mobile, and never used the WAP version of AO.

Bank on the money. Opera mini is very impressive to use.

Because opera mini downloads the pages via Opera's
servers, where it re-formats everything for small screen rendering
before it gets to your phone, it is much faster than any native phone
web browser.

AO mobile (WAP) is good if you don't have
a 3G connection up on your phone.

The RSS feeds are good if you just want to check
new threads on a low-speed connection too.

We don't have 3G where I live but Opera makes full AO on my SE c905 really quick

At work, in a HSDPA area it's instantaneous

Is this Opera mini or Opera mobile?

Mini is the small quick Java one.
No auto rotation, but the zoom/pan is very good
and you can ask it to display in landscape from the settings.


Mobile is platform specific to each phone and
is a full web browser. (I've never used it.)

Having used Opera for a few hours now. I'm not sure how I lived without it!
Nice one!

It doesn't get as much recognition as it should.
