We've actually had someone bring this up before. What it usually comes down to is the fact that our Admin and resident IT wizard (ohaha because his avatar is Gandalf you see), Mith, is super busy, and there's a lot of coding and such that goes into making a mobile version of something. We appreciate the suggestions, and if any of the rest of the staff has any ideas on this, I'm sure they'll let you know in this thread, but based on past experience, I'm going to assume a "no" on this one. XD

I understand. I use CAA on my iPhone all the time. So far, I've been able to deal with all the scrolling and inconvienences (excuse my poor spelling.) I've never coded anything before, but a mobile version does seem hard to do. But that IS a good idea! God bless you all, and peace be with you!

my phone's screen is quite a bit smaller than the iphone's screen so there is a lot of scrolling to do lol

I know this is an old thread but I think a mobile CAA would be awesome. The thing is that I don't think that CAA would have to make it them selves. What I was thinking was that CAA could possible put out a notice or something and ask for volunteer help. A member here might know how to make a mobile version or maybe even an app for on the iPhone app Store.

While I appreciate everyone's interest, the code base we use really does require a lot of hands-on work by the site admin. Even if someone else comes up with 'the code' to make it work, I would still have to create a new skin and update about 200 files to make it work. The end-user would also have to switch between skins each time they wanted to go back and forth. Additionally, any time we upgrade to a new version, we'd have to check every single file in the skin to make sure they work right.

I estimate it's several hundred hours of code to do it right - and I just don't have that kind of time left over after me day job.

Sorry everyone!
