Hey folks, I tried a few form reading apps for Android and haven't had any success. Does anyone have an app suggestion to make the forums more readable? It is pretty hard (though worth it) to read and navigate with Chrome on my Pixel 2 XL.

TIA!

Sorry, just iPhone experience for the past seven years.

MV displays surprisingly well on an iPhone/IOS system.

You best bet is to try out Firefox or Opera for Android.

Yes, get Firefox or Opera, then get a User Agent add-on.

Usually the mobile-optimised layout of ModernVespa only displays when browsing from an iPhone.

Other devices and browsers just see the desktop view of the site.

But you can force the site to display the compact mode. On Android, in Firefox, go to Add-ons and search for "user agent". There's a few to choose from, User-Agent Switcher works for me. With that installed, set it to iPhone. Then you can view MV in compact mode.

You can do the same workaround with Opera. But I don't think you can on Chrome mobile, as last time I checked, it doesn't allow extensions.

You, my friend, are the man! I'm a network/wireless engineer, I just plumb the tubes- this browser wizardry is strong!

I also like using Opera to view MV. The text wrap function mean that when you zoom, the width of the paragraphs will be automatically adjusted to fit your screen.
