We are phasing out the site app in favor of a mobile site version, which is the default site version when visiting from a phone or iPod.

To add a link to your phone or iPod homescreen so that the mobile site can be launched like an app, follow the directions below.

For Android phones:

1) Visit mu-43.com in your browser (I am using Chrome here) and tap on the menu button. Mine is circled in red; yours may look slightly different in a different browser / phone.

3.2. Tap on "Add"

4. All done. Your shortcut appears on the homescreen, where you can move it or add to a folder.

Can't get the Miscellaneous drop down to work on my iPad 4. Nothing happens. I can get the Rules part next to it to work, and PM drop down works, but not Miscellaneous (to mark new posts read).

Is there a way to get the "full site" to pop up instead of the garbage mobile site? It's not much, but I would love to save that 7-10 seconds of doing it myself every time.

Thanks for the info. I have used Tapatalk app on my Android devices and like it very much. Just another alternative to think about.
I've been using tapatalk for mu-43 for quite awhile on my iphone and like it as well.
