Needs access to the forum. I'm sure thats a huge headache but that's what I would use this for most. There are already countless apps for smart phones for movie times. The mobile guide is nice. The rest of it I don't find very useful in a mobile format. My preferred mobile Isthmus is the ink and paper version.

Very bare-bones and kind of janky-looking on an iPhone, but it loads nice and quick if you're looking for a restaurant or movie time (agree that there are already a ton of movie time apps for iPhone).

Granted, I'm not looking at them on a true smartphone, but if I had to pick, I'd go with the existing mobile site. The new version doesn't render right, even set to wide mode, unless I shrink the text size so that other websites are just starting to get uncomfortably tiny.

A TDP iPhone app would be pretty slick, but only if it included Forum.

Now is kind of low-tide for movie reviews, but I wonder how well some of these other services do with Cinematheque or the Union.

Do they list the Hwy. 18 drive-in?

Looks good. Loads and renders fast on my Nokia 5800. Easy to navigate, clean interface.

Looks good to me, though I'd let The Daily display more than 3 articles, or at least have a link back so I can look at older articles. I'd read the entire contents between bus stops.

Loads very nice and reads nice on a Blackberry Curve. I'm bookmarking it for the movie listings and the Guide. But I would like what has also been suggested - forum and more daily articles. Also, an opportunity to click to recommend or share like on the regular web site would be good. Otherwise, I like it.
