    I have the hardest time trying to use this forum on my phone. It takes forever to load up and skips all over the place. About 25% of the time it crashes the internet on my phone. It only seems to be this forum (android central). Seems like there's too much going on on this site. Anyone else have this issue?

    I use Tapatalk Pro to browse all the forums I am a member of.

    Using the actual website is not efficient nor fast on such a small screen.

    There's an app for this site. Google play is your friend.

    I'm not a big fan of using forum apps and tapatalk. I like bouncing around on different sites on the interwebs. This forum is the only one that goes me trouble.

    The only problem I have is that I can't reply to any of the comments with the news feed.

    Yup, it is so frustrating that I uninstalled the app, and trying to use it from a browser is even worse.

    I always wait until I get home and use my desktop Win7 with a 24 inch monitor so that I can SEE THINGS....

    Yeah, it must be all the advertisements and images on this forum pages.

    No but I use the Android Central App. I can imagine that the website is buggy as I've used it on the iPad Air and it was a bit laggy and just generally not an enjoyable experience, which is at odds with the overall Web browsing experience on the iPad Air. I think the site is just badly coded or something. The app is awsome though.

    When I use my desktop on the website it has issues, so I always use the app from the play store. On my phone or tablet. Never had any trouble.

    Why don't you like Tapatalk? I agree that the forum app for this site is kind of clunky but Tapatalk is fantastic. With that said, what browser are you using? I've never tried using the crappy stock internet browser on the S5. I always use Firefox and don't generally have problems with this site. I only browse this site in Firefox when I'm googling something about phones and am directed to this site.

    It's not so much that I don't like tapatalk. It's that I jump around to different sites constantly on my phone. I'll be on this forum, jump to another forum, then maybe check the news or something using my bookmarks to quickly move around.

    If I use an app, then I have to back out of what I'm doing and open an app. Then back out of the app to get back on the internet. By that point android central will have loaded up on my phone.

    The other forums I use don't give me any issue, so it's not worth it for me to use an app. I prefer the full site experience on the other sites.

    I'm just using what came on the phone to browse.

    Maybe try using a different browser then. Even try Chrome, which is already on the phone.

    So Ive been playing around with different browsers. Both chrome and firefox are much faster and smoother than what I've been using. Huge difference.

    Man, I gotta say. I feel like I'm using a new device with how much quicker it is over the last browser I was using.

    Firefox and Chrome are the only ones I've tried other than the galaxy one. Im just amazed at how much quicker it is. I'll have to try a few others.

    Lol. Apparently. Like I said above, I can't believe how much better it is.
