    I would like an Android app. Everytime I open on my Samsung General it is just full of crap that isn't worth reading. Must be bugged.

    If all you do is spend 2.99 with your mrs, I say go for it. You have nothing to lose.

    Thanks for taking the time to clarify, much appreciated! Thought you had been getting the nags from here so really pleased this one plays nicely. Your Daily Wail reading surprises me

    No worries - is a really nice system, should have done it sooner
    Know thy enemy. To be fair, The Grauniad's mobile app isn't any better.

(Try doing anything beyond looking at your own profile via a smartphone on LI, e.g. looking at recommendations you've given others, and it catapults you into the crappy mobile version repeatedly until you give up in frustration. It can't even seem to remember your stated preference within the same session, let alone next time you visit. It also exhibits that lazy, annoying behaviour of taking you to a set front page when you repeatedly choose the desktop version, instead of trying to show you the page you were viewing's full version. )

    I've just checked CUK's app on my mobile devices (Android on Galaxy S2 phone, and Android on Asus Transformer tablet). Your (new?) site doesn't exhibit the above problems. It asks you once and once only on each device if you want to download your app, and then doesn't ask again. I didn't see any mobile version being presented, so I can't comment on that.

    Most mobile sites are appallingly-designed, with a seemingly-pathological compulsion on the part of their developers to catapult you back into the mobile version at every turn. Plus they make no distinction between Android tablets and Android phones, which makes using a tablet a frustrating experience. And if you select the "show me the un-mangled desktop site" link hidden away at the bottom of the page, some developers lazily take you out to the main page of their site rather than to the full version of the page you were looking at when you clicked the link. Grrrrr!

    And as for sites that deface their content with a full-screen "Would you like to download our Android/iPhone App!!!!1111!!?" popup. Every. Single. Time. You. Visit. Give me strength. Do you know I wouldn't like to download special software merely to visit a website?

    So, dear admin and Nick, please, please, please don't implement a mobile CUK site. Or, unlike most sites that have a mobile version, if you do at least please make judicious use of Cookies so that those of us who hate getting noddy CEEFAX-versions of sites on our smartphones can turn it off once and once only and have that preference respected thereafter.
    Will have a look at it, agree it should honour the fact it has been declined.

    I wouldn't want to incur the wrath of any Daily Mail readers... (of course I expenced it!)
