        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.

          Maybe you should ask in Accounting if you can claim it as an expense?

            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!)

              Gentile - I have tried it on the iPad and works fine for me, no prompt to download the app once I have cancelled it. What device are you using when getting continually nagged?

                Thanks for the response, admin. My post about was about mobile versions of websites and mobile apps in the general. I hadn't realised you'd implemented yours yet. e.g. the Daily Mail spam you with popups for their Android mobile app every single time you visit, and LinkedIn is particularly bad at trying to railroad you into their unusable mobile version. (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.
