Mobile App for new site?

The only thing I hate about using the new site on mobile (chrome on android) is the picture viewing function. When I click on a thumbnail/attachment, it goes to like a theater view and there are only 2 states of zoom, full in (way too much) and full out. And then when I use the android back button, instead of just exiting the theater view, it goes back an entire page or back to the thread list.

Use Firefox Preview.

If you are on Android, check the box for "Force Enable Zoom" in your accessibility settings within your browser settings.

For me I just figured out that clicking the attachment name instead of the thumb nail brings up the full resolution pic in a new page you can actually use the back button to get out of. And pinch to zoom works as it should, more pinch more zoom vs all the way in or all the way out with no in between. This is chrome on android.

I find the current format very useable in Brave browser on iphone.
Brave works on vortex too, can set options to stop ads.
Tapatalk actually gets annoying for me, but picture hosting is easy, but not worth it at &60/yr.

I found tapatalk insufferable to use on my phone. I always preferred the browser version. Different strokes for different folks

I don't like to sit on this forum from my phone or on any other forum. This is very inconvenient, and I have to scroll through many pages to find what interests me. Even with my poor eyesight, the task becomes impossible. Plus, when notifications start coming from the forum, my phone just breaks.
I like to hang out on forums from my Macbook. It's much more convenient and exciting this way. If anything, I can even broadcast the screen on the TV. Sometimes I do this, it's very suitable for watching a movie. I downloaded this application on the website https://okaapps.com/product/1519399703. In addition, it is absolutely free.
