Well...I personally like Desktop View. It looks on my phone exactly like it does on my Computer. Toolbar works from my phone in this view. Post Links, Images, Media (videos and my fave smileys!), text, file links, fonts and all the do-dads! I have an Android.
I have started new PIR groups from my Phone! Along with an Image for the group as it loads differently.
I can also highlight, copy and paste. Copy URL links (though I cannot edit it to look all pretty and open to another page, but when on the go you do what you can!) and paste them in. I can open multiple windows with the site and load different Groups on them or content and copy from one and then paste on another.
Easy. You just got to play with it Folks!
Mobile Optimized is great if you want simple.
SWITCHING BETWEEN THE TWO:
VIEWING Navy for Moms on your phone, there are two options: Mobile Optimized view and Desktop view.
Mobile Optimized view. When you sign in on your phone it automatically signs you in to Mobile Optimized view. This is a very limited view of the site. Personally do not like it. How you post is limited as well, you don't get the same tabs as you would on the computer.
Desktop view looks just like it would if you were on your computer. You can use all the functions (changing fonts etc) just like on your computer. Love this mode :-)
To switch to Desktop from Mobil Optimized view:
After you sign on go to the Menu icon in the top right corner of the site.
Click it for the drop down Menu.
Scroll down and click Desktop view.
IF you would like to go back to Mobilized view :-( , simply scroll down to the bottom of the page and there is a sign that says, "Switch to the Mobil Optimized View", click it and it should change back.
(Let me know what you like about MO view for those of you who use it!)
I am hoping that helps some and I also hope that we can help each other out with our device usage!

FTLW...OMG! How are you? I am cleaning up my email and I saw this notice. It has been FOREVER since I first met you when my son joined the Navy in January of 2012. He is still in as a Corpsman who will hopefully be going through EMP.as he just completed his bachelor's. He is currently greenside. He's married and they are expecting my first grandchild. It has been a wild ride. Hope all is well for you and yours.Stay safe and healthy! Happy Mother's Day! :-)
HEYYYY DramaSoul!!! It's good to hear from you :-D I was getting reacquainted with the site and I was going through my Groups and I thought about you. Thank you for reaching out!!
That's wonderful about your son! Wow, a lot going on. Greenside is pretty cool. "Doc"!!! The EMP I'm unfamiliar with...is that the Enlisted to Medical degree prep program?
AND a grand baby! Congratulations in advance. I wish perfect health for Mother and Child and the best to you and your Sailor!
All is well thank you. Just chugging along. Seabee son reenlisted (reserves) and other sons doing well.
We are retired and loving it!
