    posting from a cell phone

    So I am sitting here waiting for my movie to start and decided to visit here. How the heck do people see the site on a 5" screen? The only thing I find easier is typing, it's easier just to swipe in my android.

    Exactly why I won't do it (phone thing for places like this). Too small for my eyes. I can see it being a good thing on a tablet, though. My phone is for texting, calls, texting, sending pics, texting, oh, and texting.

    I just bought the new iPad Air and love it. I can't stand using my phone for posting. Although I do it frequently, as Hawg said texting,texting,texting and phone call here and there.

    Use an app called tapatalk. Phone friendly mate. Now I can talk nonsense about bikes and other crap all day. It's incognito at work too.

    I read the forums on my phone but never post to them. I need to look into this tapatalk more. I get notifications on my phone every time I visit a forum for it.

    It was something to do before the movie. The reading was a little hard but the typing was easier. To bad our comp key boards can't do the swipe thing.

    Can you imagine doing it with one hand on the steering wheel and the other hand trying to keep the phone really low so you don't get caught using the phone while driving?

    All I meant was , whenever I seek out the services of a hooker, she always seems to come up with an on-line printable coupon for 30% off.

    verb

    : a swinging movement of a person's hand, an animal's paw, etc., that is done in an attempt to hit something

    : to steal (something)

    : to pass (a credit card, ATM card, etc.) through a machine that reads information from it



    If Deke is posting via Swype, then apparently it doesn't have itself in it's spell-check library.

    What is Swype?


    Swype is a faster and easier way to input text on any screen.

    With one continuous motion across the screen, Swype's patented technology enables users to input words faster and easier than other data input methods at over 40 words per minute.

    The application is designed to work across a variety of devices such as phones, tablets, game consoles, kiosks, televisions, virtual screens, and more.

    ^^ That's marketing literature from their website.

    I guess it reads your mind, and as you slide your finger across the screen, it spits out the words coming from in there at 40 words per minute.

    Something like that.

    with most smart phones i.e android or iphone, on no longer has to tap the virtual key board but swipe the letters to get the word one needs. Hence all the funny texts one m( not mentioning names Hawg) sends when driving.
