CR4 App for Smartphone

09/23/2016 7:58 AM

I sometimes look at CR4 using my smartphone (iphone 6s+). I noticed this morning that once I added a comment to a thread there was no way to get back to the CR4 home page directly. I could click on a link to 'Engineering 360', but the button/hyperlink text line that goes to CR4 directly wasn't there. I had to exit the app entirely and re-click on the app link on my phone.

Can someone at CR4/Engineering 360 look into this? (Or is the link there, just somehow hidden so it was not obvious to me?)

Ahhh. Ok, I did a test to check. The link labeled 'Engineering Community' takes me back to CR4. (Why not just label it 'CR4'?)

Thanks

Ha. The back button took me to a page with a pop up that asked 'Do you want to repost this message?' A time loop!

Time travel isn't possible. See earlier thread on CR4.

There are a couple of ways to get back to the homepage while using the mobile version of CR4.

As someone pointed out, you can tap the three bar menu on the top left (aka a "hamburger" menu) and then select Engineering Community. I would also like to call this CR4, but the rationale behind the label is that a newbie wouldn't know what CR4 means, so we went with something more generic. These are the same links that across the top of the desktop version of the site.

Another way to navigate the site is to tap the gray/black triangle button on the lower right of the screen. When the menu expands, you can either tap the tagline "CR4 - The Engineer's Place for News and Discussion" to navigate to the CR4 homepage, or you can navigate elsewhere using the other buttons.

And, as someone else pointed out, you can also hit the back button a couple of times.

For more information, you can watch our video on how to use CR4 on your smartphone.

You can also learn how to make a shortcut to CR4 on your phone.

On mine there is no hamburger, just chicken fingers. Sorry, could not resist.

Actually, I have never attempted to access this on my mobile phone. By the time the end of the day gets here, I just want to put the phone down, and hug my dogs, bark at the old lady.
