That's probably my ratio as well. It might be closer to half and half if it were easier to post certain things and tinker with formatting on the phone.

Mostly PC. I find it works better on a PC over my tablet or phone.

Same here.

If I visited the forum while at home, I'd use my phone.

Re: When on DVDtalk, are you using a PC, tablet, or phone?

Over the last few years Iíve gone to slowly started to use my phone more and more. At this point, I use it almos 100% of the time. Usually while Iím relaxing on the couch in front of the tv.

Not so coincidentally, some Iíve primarily used my phone more, the number of typos and grammar mistakes have increased exponentially.

90% PC. 10% phone on a random basis.

Re: When on DVDtalk, are you using a PC, tablet, or phone?

With the new software update, I haven't figured out how to read from the mobile version, it either takes me to the first or last post in the thread. I would assume there is a way for the link to jump to the last read location. But I self-banned myself from the politics forum, so thankfully I spend a lot less time here, so checking from my work computer a few minutes at a time is good enough for me now.

I guess I’m spoiled by this IPad. I agree that phone and smaller tablet use can be tougher, but I find no handicaps in posting versus my old PC days. Can’t browse on work PCS due to filters and workplace monitoring, but maybe if I could I’d still use a PC.

I mainly use my pc. I always had trouble getting hijacked by ads on mobile. Has that been fixed now?

Re: When on DVDtalk, are you using a PC, tablet, or phone?

Even though i'm a gadget/tech junkie, I hate typing anything long and meaningful on a portable device. With easy access to a PC and laptop at work or home, I much prefer a real keyboard for just about anything other then brief text/chat conversations.

Those of you that find great freedom of browsing and use on small devices, I hope your devices are encrypted. That's the main advantage of having a PC as well, you can't leave your PC at Starfucks or any place you browse in public. With a tablet or phone, welps you pretty much an easy target if they get a hold of your device.
