    Seriously, this new mobile view thing dont work for me... Been on here when phones and the web and people werent as smart as they are now.
    It opens in mobile view sometimes, sometimes in std view. My issue is I am too dumb or lazy to learn the new view, but I have to select to exit mobile view, then give a reason why, seriously, i have given all the reasons cause they all valid... In fact i have given all the reasons numerous times, and still i have to stare at a screen that says loading... Wtttfff? Then only log in and click on new posts.
    Other sites gives you an option the moment it leaves google as to whether you would like to use the mobile view. It has happened with a few log ins on masa, but now we back to being forced to go in and out and then only really get in....

    Whatever that means, yes viperina, add that to the list of options as to why i want to exit the mobile view and rather use the more data intensive web view

    I liked the homepage when I open MASA previosly on my S4 , but agree with Irie Ivan , I hate the new MASA on the cellphone.

    There are a few technical reasons why we have looked at this mobile style. The main one is a restriction Google is placing on us. @viper357 knows the details.

    The easiest solution i can offer you is the following:

    1. open masa in the mobile browser, the topify interface will load.
    2. top left there are 3 lines (a settings menu) tap on it, it will open a side menu with some options.
    3. tap on the exit enhanced mobile view. it brings up a exit menu select the "i just prefer the old view" option
    4. this should load masa web view style, if you load in the "masa mobile style" look at the top there should be a desktop style option.

    *this should hold unless you are clearing your cookies etc often

    Another approach you can try is in the browser menu, simple select the option that says request desktop site.

    this solution works on my Sony Z3 which is android 4.4.4

    Please provide us with any feed back you might have

    tapatalk works nicely,especially to quickly reply to a pm or something cos it doesnt load so many things on the page so its quick...and cheap..
