    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.

    2. Tap on "Add to homescreen"

    3.1. Change title to something short like "Mu-43"

    3.2. Tap on "Add"

    14480241154_bd51e6dc2d.


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

    For iPhone / iPod:

    1. Visit mu-43.com in your browser (Safari) and then tap the icon shown below:

    14480243444_07891bdfeb.


    2. Tap on "Add to Home Screen"

    14294827670_18007bd635.


    3.1. Change the name to something short like "Mu-43"

    3.2. Tap on "Add"

    14480242964_ed9121007d.


    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).

    This is a nice mobile solution, the mobile site works very well on my devices.

    Thanks for the info. I have used Tapatalk app on my Android devices and like it very much. Just another alternative to think about.

    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.
