Hey guys,

Finally some great news after a few tough days in the Gaming Industry.

Our Covers Forum has gone mobile today and will offer easy navigation through our threads for both the iPhone and Android devices.  Included in our initial launch will be the ability for users to log in and post on any thread they wish.

Future releases will include features like creating new threads and easy navigation to your favorite posts/threads.

Please feel free to post your likes and dislikes below and we'll be sure to incorporate as many of the suggestions as possible.

Blackberry's are on our radar.

For iPhone users who had previously bookmarked Covers Mobile please be sure to do the following to allow for the best forum experience:

1. User must delete their current home screen bookmark by:

A) holding their finger on the icon until it starts to shake

B) click the X which appears on the icon while it's shaking

C) a confirmation dialog will appear to confirm deleting the bookmark, press delete

2. Next the user must clear their cache and cookies (note: this will log the user out of all sites they are currently logged into)

A) navigate to and click the settings icon

B) under the settings menu press Safari

C) scroll to the bottom of the screen and press Clear Cookies, confirm when prompted

D) press the Clear Cache button, confirm when prompted

3. Finally the user may navigate to m.covers.com and re-add the icon

A) open Safari

B) navigate to m.covers.com

C) click the 3rd icon from the left on the blue bar at the bottom of the screen

D) click the "Add to Home Screen" button

E) enter the name desired for the bookmark then press Add

The new icon should now allow proper login.

Looks like you guys are already addressing the issue in terms of navigation....not able to see poster/user name until you click on thread.

So you can't post yet or can you? When I go to the mobile site, I can navigate, but when I press community it takes me to the full site.

works on a BlackBerry with the 6.0 OS webkit browser. I was able to post with no problems on a thread.

the posted from a mobile phone thing - not really needed to be shown IMO.

The fourth option down "Forum" on m.covers.com has been added. We'll be adding the thread creator with the next push to our mobile site. Thanks for the feedback.

Hello... Im an DROID X User.. and im still not able to write in the dialogue box when trying to start a thread and post. I believe if the Box giving for a response was a little bit smaller the Pre-Cursor would be allowed to click on it and allow you to write.

Please also Include a MATCH-UPS Bar-Link when you first enter the mobile site. For some reason its hard to click on the top ROW links where it begins with "HOME" and instead always leads me to the options on the bottom link where it begins with "community home"..... Thanks for attempting to fix this.

If a thread has 72 replys I can only see for example 25 of those replys. Would there be a second page and where is the button?
