Is there a plan to optimize ProZ.com for mobile devices? I believe that many users would welcome the ability to access ProZ on their PDA/smart phones, either to respond to job posting or to seach the KudoZ, to check BB, etc.

Lucia, thank you for the speedy reply.

AFAIK, RSS fee is different from a mobile version. What I have in mind is version of this website that is mobile device friendly so that we can continue to access this website through BlackBerry for instance.

The examples I have in mind: m.cnn.com, m.linkedin.com

ProZ.com mobile version was discontinued May 22, 2009

Hello Hengky,

ProZ.com mobile version was released in 2007. However, this feature was not widely used and so it was discontinued recently and replaced by RSS feeds.

You will find more information here.

Regards,

Lucia

sorry Jun 16, 2009

Sorry, now I see the similar topic as my recent one was opened short time ago already...

But anyway, I don't think RSS is a replacement for PDA-like version.
One thing is that not all mobile devices support RSS.
Apart from that, RSS only shows updates etc., but to react one still has to use direct web access.

It would be great if there is be at least something like "mjobs.proz.com" to allow to react to jobs in a timely manner (i.e. not involving 300 kB pages on 4 kB connection) wherever you are.
