Beta Newsletter Now Available on Mobile Devices

Postby SorensonMi » Thu Feb 23, 2012 12:19 pm

We have built the Newsletter using a responsive design. This means that by visiting

https://beta.lds.org/member-news

on a mobile device, you will see the site adapt to your device.

There are 3 known issues:
1. The wysiwyg will not work on mobile. Instead, you will see a basic text area field
2. You cannot currently add attachments or images from mobile devices
3. There is some category re-ordering weirdness

We encourage you to try using the site on your mobile device and provide feedback on any issues you find.

Thanks!

Mindie

I am running the standard OS on a Droid 2 Global and when I used the link to get to the newsletter page it directed me straight to the lds.org home page. Do I need to navigate somewhere on lds.org or is it not working correctly on my device?

Adding https did the trick! Adapted quickly to my phone as well.

I have tried on my HTC Wildfire (Android 2.2). I too initially fell into the trap that led to the lds.org home page being loaded after login, but adding the https fixed that.
When the page opens though 3/4 of the screen is filled with a blue banner (Church logo, welcome message, etc.). I can only see the name of my stake at the bottom of the screen. I would prefer to see more of the newsletter information on the screen initially.

Looks great in iOS 5.0.1. I started typing in the category box and an auto fill box popped up but was not selectable.
