|Summary||0000568: Add mobile device support|
|Description||Add 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.|
|Tags||No tags attached.|
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: http://sender11.typepad.com/sender11/2008/04/mobile-screen-s.html 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., w2psite.com/mobile (or mobile.w2psite.com 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:
