I've got the Mumsnet mobile site on a shortcut in my homescreen. I click on it, I get two or three pages in and the screen freezes. I can't bring up the delete page button or refresh the page or anything, the whole screen has frozen. I have to shut it down by the button. I can look at anything else on the internet, just not Mumsnet. I've tried deleting it and starting again but it still does it. The app site is fine, just the mobile site.

I know I've recently done a software upgrade but everything else seems to be working. It's an iPhone 5. Perhaps it's male?

Anyone? MNHQ have you heard of this?

Do you also get the weird random symbols whenever their should be an apostrophe?

Not on the mobile site but I do in the app.

Perhaps it's my phone. hmm

It's funny that it's just this website though.

not the same problem but mine has gone to the desktop view and no option to change to phone/tablet view.

I don't like the app, so liked having the mobile friendly view.

No I don't like the app either. As you scroll down the active convo's the same ones keep repeating themselves. Theres no option of reading messages by page, it's all on one continuous loop. You have to keep refeshing your page to see your own message appear. It does my head in. I want the bloody mobile site to work! angry

Yes. I had the same problem with the mobile site a few weeks ago. Totally froze my phone. Repeatedly.

My impression was that with so many saved threads etc, it had all just got too big for my phone to handle. (Technical explanation....) There was nothing to be done. I clicked the little red cross with a very heavy heart.

I'd never used the app before after reading about it here. It's my only (phone) option now and not a good one. Very hard to feel properly involved in conversations - and posting is dreadful.

I used to be able to MN and get on with life simultaneously - the phone was rarely out of my hand. Now I have to make a choice; laptop or RL.....

So do I. App on phone on comfy sofa in warm living room, or computer in cold study. hmm

Oooh - look at me on the mobile site again! It's so beautiful and flexible and ....

..... let's see how long it works before my poor old phone spits it out again.
