I have been visiting mylot for about 6 days in a row now using my smartphone. And it's turn out to be a slightly painful experience. Nope, nothing's wrong with my experience here in mylot forum. People here have been very nice to me since I came. And once in a while I'm still encountering nice personalities here and there around mylot. I was talking about my painful typing experience. As you can see in the image that I have posted, I have a very small on-screen keyboard. I know one can make it appear larger by using the mobile in landscape mode and all that, but it still is a mess as your view has now been squeezed down. I have a laptop, however, but I keep it for my blog related works. And I try to keep my professional and personal life separate by using mobile for my most personal use and laptop for work related use. And so it turns out that my poor thumbies have to do all typing when using smartphone, which becomes painful in the long run. What about you??? Have you been using smartphones to visit mylot? If yes, then, Have you experienced the same?

I am from an old generation that has not learned to type with the thumbs at birth, and I find always painful to type on a phone. I have used it a few times for myLot, the interface is not bad, but I am not comfortable with anything else than a true keyboard.

I can understand your problem while mylotting through your smart phone. It could be problematic to go for mylotting through smart phone, therefore, I avoid it and would do it occasionally. I prefer to do mylotting either through PC/Laptop or Tablet. Moreover, smartphone adds more strain and stress to your eyes.
Yes, that's true. But I have got to do it using a smartphone. I have my laptop for professional work. And smartphone is the only option left for more personal use. And for the eye strain part I use a very good eye lubricant, so I have one less thing to worry about

@shikharava You could think of buying a second laptop for your non professional work. . I have no idea even a good eye lubricant helps in reducing strain on our eyes. Using smart phone for longer hours could trigger a pain in your neck and fingers.

Hi Shikha... Sorry to hear about your painful experience... I am also using my smartphone to be here.. And it's not as convenient as it would be using a computer. It's good to keep the personal life separate from your professional one, and yet I would recommend you to use your laptop until you find another way. It's not necessary that this will mix your professional and personal life. Not just that but it will increase your speed and amount of responses. And it will be better for your fingers too... Thank you!

I haven't tried using MyLot on my phone, I don't think I could use the keys and the keyboard, it takes way too long for me to type with my phones teeny-tiny keyboard. I make more mistakes as well. So typing on the computer is more my preference.
I agree with you. Typing on a virtual keyboard is really a hassle. Every now and then it turns out that you're relying more on the spell checker that works along with the keyboard. Also because of its very small size, we are prone to commit a lot many mistakes. This all becomes quite a labor in my opinion. It's better we stick to the more tangible keyboard rather than sticking to this. That's my take on this. Enjoy your day! Peace

I have been posting to Mylot from my smartphone and it is more complicaated than using the computer. There is a little window that apppears blocking the sight from the words I´m wiriting and closing it each time, results tiring
