Forum home The potting shed

How do you all access this Forum?

Is there an app or does every one go on this Forum the old 'internet page' way?! 
Or perhaps, there is a mobile version? 
Just trying to see if there is a quicker way to check new posts or replies to your questions.

    Yep, "internet page" way for me too. Either on a desktop computer or my tablet.

    It's the old internet page for me ..... no other choice as there's no reliable mobile signal here ... I only have a mobile for the car for emergency use (and that's not a smart phone so no apps)

    There are options on your settings page (Notification Preferences) that will alert you to a response by either email or pop-up.
    I don't know if the pop-up would work on a mobile, but the email option would

    There's no app (unless you count Chrome ;-)), but as said, you can set various kinds of notifications. Just leave the 'Recent Discussions page open and refresh it.

     If I haven’t already got the tab open I just type in ga in the google box and up it comes. 
    Then I click on forum home, that gives the daily postings.

    If you want to access the Forum directly from your phone in one click just go to the Forum homepage and use the bar that appears horizontally at the bottom of your screen to select “add to home screen” (see photo below). Then a GW icon will appear on your home screen.

    You can also set your notifications in Settings on your phone so that the phone alerts you when you get a new email/response. Hope that makes sense!
