I've just got a new (old) iPhone and of course the first thing I want to put on it after my contacts is mumsnet.
I've downloaded the app and am not impressed. Apart from it looking all weird and unusual, some features I'm used to aren't available, the main one being highlight OP's posts (essential imo).
I used to use mobile site on my previous phone but I can't work out how to put mobile site as an 'app' on iPhone homescreen, have to go to it via search engine so having to log in everytime. Not only is this tedious but I have to switch to desktop site first or it won't log me in and this is starting to give me rage!
Can any mumsnet iPhone users educate me please so I can spend the weekend as I'd planned happily eating cake and mumsnnetting
I agree the app is a bit rubbish so I use the mobile site instead. I have an Android tablet and was able to save mumsnet as a bookmark and then add the bookmark as a shortcut to my homescreen. Does the iphone let you do the same?
I'll keep messing around and see if I can do that MrsCakes That's how I used it on my other phone but unless I'm just being a bit dim I can't see how to do that yet. I am very not used to this phone yet! It's not as amazing as I'd been told
That's great MrsCakes except it won't let me log in via safari?
Weird but maybe that's something else that I need to play around with unless safari is broken?
Any other iPhone users got any other hints or tips. I can't believe how let down I'm feeling. I was told this phone was the dogs,amazing,super-dooper and I've spent most of my day just trying to set the damn thing up!
You might have worked this out but if you want to save it to the home screen like an app goto active conversations on safari then click the button whih is a rectangle with an arrow pointing up on it at the bottom of the screen and click add to home screen
