Productive Geek Goes Mobile!

We’ve built a completely new mobile site for Productive Geek, that allows you to not only read the articles but participate on the forum. You can post topics, replies, and read through the forum right from your iPhone, iPod Touch, Android phone, or possibly other mobile devices. You don’t have to go to any special URL either, you’ll just automatically be shown the mobile site from your phone.

In the very near future, you’ll be able to use How-To Geek on your mobile device the same way… here’s some screenshots of the Productive Geek Mobile to get you excited =)

And here’s what it looks like so far… still a bunch of work to do.


Once we’re done, you’ll be able to participate on How-To Geek, including posting on the forum, directly from your phone.
