Mobile GiantBomb! What is SexyToad talking about? There no such thing? But there should. Many times I check up on giantbomb on my iPhone. It loads up the desktop version which is fine but then let's say I want to quote some one. I CANT. Let's say whatever I'm posting needs to be big... I CAN'T! Let's say I want to post a pic of giantbomb girl advice line on yet another girl issue topic... I CAN'T! Let's say I broke my left thumb and I want to go on giant bomb. I can but I would have to put my phone close to my face since I can't zoom in. So who else wants a mobile site!?!?!?

There already is one you sexy yet clueless toad. It's for premium members only, though.

It's also not very good.

Came here to say this exact thing.

It's by no means awful, but it gets the job done. Just wish you could edit posts.

@joshthebear: Yes. Sometimes I accidently reply without finishing my message.

Also, comments tend to loop, clicking more would start you over.

Uh then for the general public?

Nope. There used to be an iPhone app but they stopped working/updating it.

The mobile site alone is totally worth the $5 a month. So are all of the other features. Support the site and get some awesome stuff.

I disagree. I think the Giant Bomb Mobile site is very good. It allows easy access to all the sites main features.

What do you find lacking?

Yeah, for real. I paid $50 for the year and its WELL worth it for me. HTML5 video and HTML5 theater, Premium video and HD Video as well as the Mobile site along with no ads. Tons of great stuff and its WELL worth the price of admission.

I think it's fine for what it is- I'm not complaining, but it would be cool if you could post photos or at least edit your posts.

Sounds like everybody wants a better text-editor for the mobile site. Time to call @Snide and flex some of that CBSi muscle and/or cash.

I like the mobile site but I think it would be cool if they made a native app for iOS and Android. I'd pay for native app and then they could make the mobile site free.

I use the full site on my phone and it works great.

I guess I understand why it is a premium only thing, but still. In this day and age, you would think that mobile would be one of those things they would want to get out to everyone.

#15 Posted by Zacagawea (1613 posts) -

Maybe saying it's not very good is over doing it, but I feel it definitely could be more fully featured.

It'll probably happen, just a matter of when.

I never use it.

RSS feeds to iTunes so I wake up and watch new content. Amazing!

It's only 5 bucks a month and you get a ton of features for premium membership. Totally worth it in my opinion.

With the crazy high screen resolutions of modern phones, the desktop site doesn't even seem like a bad option if you just scroll in on stuff you want to see.

It is only 5 bucks a month, you are not that poor if you can afford an iphone and a computer with a working internet connection.

Honestly I use the full site from my phone more than the mobile site. Only time I ever use the mobile is if I want to look at the wiki because that's broken if I try to use the desktop site on my phone.

The text editor could be better, but I'd say that I do over 80% of my Giantbombing on the mobile site and have no issues with it.
