I'm having similar problems on Android. It won't stay on 'classic' view.

I have enough trouble reading texts on my phone - especially without glasses!

Just don't see the point of squinting at internet or TV on mobiles?! ;D ???

There's another thread going about the mobile version of Rootschat.
Seems to be some teething problems.

Well at least I know it is not just me the 1st few times I came on I logged in and it still kept telling me I needed to log in until I went right to the bottom and saw classic or mobile mine was on mobile which I am using but I changed it to classic and it was fine some of us are not so lucky to have a laptop of 2 that their kids have not broken so hence I am using my mobile phone

Hi - does anyone know why I can't get the proper format of Rootschat on my ipod any more? I have a brown version and have to loggin everytime - it doesn't recognise me. I am puzzled because it still goes through the Broadband box thingy just like my pc does, and the pc still has the usual format, and RC recognises me when I go through the pc.

Mine wont stay on classic at all ,  keeps logging me out and is not showing some posts sometimes . It also seems to be using up more kb and taking   longer to load a page .  Perhaps the site going through maintainance or a site upgrade and its only temporary ? ? ?

we are not upgrading at the moment, and the site software is pre-Android and pre-Tablets and pre-Internet-phones so there is no telling what could be happening in such cases.
