DescriptionAdd the ability to "compress" or optimize a subset of views for mobile devices. I'm partial to an iphone screen dimension, but we should include blackberry and other such devices.

Would it be possible to do this by increments? For example when accessing each screen, expand the display for small screens. A simple place to start would be the login screen which is a chore to use on an iPhone now.
Similarly the contacts screen could be reduced to be readable.

I'm +100 on doing something like this.

We can do *some* things with User Agent detection or screen size detection but I think sarexpert highlights a potentially bigger problem. We just have a lot of info on the screen.

What if we came up with better pagination when on mobile? 10 items instead of 50?
What if we had a way to filter the "most recently updated" items to the beginning of the list?
What if we had a "simple view" with a subset of fields and an "advanced" view with all the fields for things like Projects & Tasks and defaulted to "simple view" for mobile?

Would any of those solve some of the problems?
(I'm just making stuff up here, feel free to come up with better/more ideas.)

Firstly, start at the top (as saraexpert does) screen res. Excellent article here: recommends targetting a 240 x 320 screen size. On the head of a pin, sure.

I'm not in favor of browser detection; rather, use a mobile link for the view, i.e., (or for the apache-comfortable)

Now I'm curious about use case, and this will vary wildly. Here's my common scenario.
Load my w2p page/tasks/todo page. WAY too much info for mobile. What do I need to know on my mobile? Past due and due-today events. I don't care what the start date, duration, and all the ways into a task; 2 columns for a simple view. Easy clutter cleanup! However, I need to know "Title" and Due Date" of all past due and due today todo/tasks. Clicking on these items would then bring us to a detail page, as is but now I'm out of a use-case.

Exciting stuff! I've just moved to Android, and it would be sweet pragmatically access my W2P from that phone

This is handled via the responsive Bootstrap theme:
