This comment from the mobile site.  Nice and clean.  When will the app be available?

Praise be!! Thanks, guys.

One thing I def would do though is to detect anyone who's using a mobile device (iPhone, Android, etc) & auto-direct them to the mobile site. Or else you're probably not going to get a lot of use out of it. Most sites do this (it's very easy) & puts a link somewhere on the bottom or top if you wanna change back to either version.

Also, is there any way to work in the "latest discussions" section on the mobile version's front page? I don't know about anyone else, but I use that a lot & it's super handy.

I can't find it in the app store on my phone.  How about a QR code to download that will take me to the app or something.

I personally can't stand to use a mobile version of a website on a smartphone, but I know that some people appreciate it.

It isn't an app, it is a mobile site. Go to the browser on your phone and type the address. www.metrojacksonville.com/mobile

The mobile site is sweet.  Thank you.  I'm with peestandingup...it would be awesome to have the latest discussions section on the front page.

Good job guys. Please, no app necessary. The last thing I need is another "app" to go to a web page. Just keep this mobile site updated:)
