Introducing CR4 for Your Smartphone

CR4 now has a responsive version. This means that CR4 will take on a different appearance when accessed from a smartphone. Desktop and tablet users will still see the traditional desktop version of the site.

In order to show you more about the functionality of the responsive version, we have created a video that demonstrates what's different.

View the video here: https://youtu.be/SL3QmjrSlus

Ready to use it? Add a shortcut to your phone's home screen.

So, how do I get the app? I'm on Android, so is it in the Play Store? Or do I have to download it elsewhere as an APK?

It's not an app. You can use the browser on your smartphone. Visit http://cr4.globalspec.com and you will see the website in a version that's optimized for a smaller screen size.

Give it a try and tell us what you think! And if you have any questions, just ask -- I'm happy to help you find things that may be in a different place.

My posts (for some time now) have been few-and-far-between, due to difficulties using only the iPhone.

I am using "work time", right now, to post a couple items, including this.

As I tried REPEATEDLY to use my iPhone (Safari browser) to upload something earlier, all I could achieve was logging in:

... and THEN ... all repeated attempts to "reply" would either shut-down my browser, OR tell me:

*&^%$#@! ... W-T-*_!???

Thanks for reporting the problem. I have asked the team to look into it. Someone will contact you shortly, or I'll respond when I hear something about the error.
