Smartphone app?

It appears that the popularity of smartphones is killing of our forum.
The problem seems to be our forum is too small to read, and too fiddly to post messages from a smartphone, no doubt others are also suffering from the explosion of smartphones and dwindling posts?

So my question is, is there an app for a smartphone that makes the yabb forum compatible with mobile phones?
  

Using yabb 2.3.1

YaBB works ok on my windows 7 smartphone screen size is 480 x 800 pixels, 3.8 inches here is a video of this forum on it http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GwGR79-Yys0
but we will be working on a mobile compatible template for YaBB.
  

YaBB install help video
1. what yabb forum are you running and the url
2. describe in as much detail as you can what happens and also post screenshots if you can
3. please be patient we live in different time zones and have other commitments but we will help you
as bill and ted say (Be excellent to each other)

In future iterations of YaBB (past the current one in dev) we'll probably be looking at something like Tapatalk support as well as mobile appliance skins.

In the meantime I am constantly boggled by people post their forum comments on the forum's FaceBook account claiming the forum is 'hard' but FaceBook is 'easy' while I do coding can't get blasted Facebook to work at all for me. (I really REALLY don't like 20 requests from people I don't know -  and would probably cross the street to avoid if I met them face to face - to play a really stupid game.)
  

If you only have one solution to a problem you're not trying hard enough!
