I used the site on my I-touch and it went surprisingly fast.  It has a nice homepage to access different aspects of the site which goes VERY FAST, while giving you the option to head into the forums. The only complaint I had was I had trouble logging in while on the device. I don't know if that was my device or the site itself.

Great stuff guys; I was just thinking last night -- too bad I can't easily access my contests and experts from my iPhone. This is perfect!

So, Rizzo, does that mean you wont be able to post in the mains from the mobile site, only in a designated mobile area? I've found that, other than posting, you can do just about everything from a Blackberry as it its, so unless you can post to the mains it seems somewhat pointless...

works great on my i phone.

Can't wait until posting is more user friendly on the phone.

For some reason you can type the heading box to start a new topic in a new post but when you try to type in the box it won't let you. We have to copy and paste to make a message.

Dear Covers: Thank-you!! 

I've been using my Ipod touch at work. I used to get so frustrated trying to navigate through your site. I went online today and was very pleased at what you guys have done. It's so fast, It's so easy. This totally made my week!!

Just get going on the forum.

Also can you guys add a special room for Covers posters who are "Elite" posters. I hate all the spam and trolls that run around on this site bringing it down. If only there was a way to make a room for those who don't abuse the site. It's nice to have the penalty box but it doesn't save us from new members and the ones who just don't belong in the "Elite room"  Let me know. If your confused about what i'm trying to tell you I can explain it more. Thank-you

1. Need to switch which scores show first. When yo u click on scores, it shows the final scores first.............it should be the opposite and show the games still in progress first. If we're looking at scores, it's probably to make a halftime or ingame wager; therefore, we want to see the boxscore immediately.

2. It should have a forum button and a matchup button on the first page so that we can access the forums.

3. This applies to the site and the mobile; you need to add the category turnovers in the boxscore of basketball games. Covers boxscore is sometimes mis-leading if you don't know how the teams taking care of the ball.

Not cool.  At the mercy of the browser.  Firefox mobiles not a fan your code. Others did OK.   You need to pool your resources with statfox and make a real app. Pipe dream I know.

Thanks for all the feedback guys.  We're currently working on updating how the scores display.  We'll be keeping all your feedback in mind as we continue to tweak.

Keep it coming.
