I'd like to be able to have the forum be mobile friendly.

Most of the time I spend on the PG Music foruums is on my iPhone, with no problem. Do you have specific problems or suggestions?

On Android, the columns change sometimes to narrow strips so you get a long narrow column of words stacked on top of each other. Other times it displays fine. Not consistent.

The forum text is so small that you spend all your time pinching in and out to read the forum.

When answering a post with a long message, sometimes the box doesn't always scroll to let you see what you are typing. Sometimes it does. Changing the screen orientation from portrait to landscape back to portrait will usually temporarily fix it.

Those are three things off the top of my head that would help the mobile experience if fixed.

Yes, I agree with the need for pinching, but I’m not sure what the alternative is. Thanks for pointing out inconsistent behavior on Android. I haven’t seen that on iPhone.

When using the forum on my iPhone, I have to keep zooming in and out to parts of the forum. It's just that. I am on another fourm that is formated just for computers.

Using gestures is definitely a requirement with the PG Music Forum on mobile devices. I would have thought that the web page software could detect the destination device type and switch to different font size, layout etc. I believe that there's room for an improved display presentation on mobile devices.

I understood that Google implied a rule some time back that it would provide a lower search engine ranking to web pages that were not mobile friendly.

+1 Great wishlist request!

While wishing for great things how about wishing for the complete website to be Android and Ipad device compatible.

Yes it does go a long way. I have a marketing friend who told me that most people start out checking out a website on their phone before going onto the site on the computer. With iPads and tablets, the people who go to their computer may be slowing down.

Review - Xtra Styles PAK 9 for Band-in-a-Box® 2020

Remember that wonderful review of Band-in-a-Box® 2020 for Mac we received last month from "Dr. Dave" Walker, Band-in-a-Box 2020 for Mac … WOW!?

Well, Dr. Dave is at it again! He's had a chance to work with the newest Xtra Styles PAK 9, and shares his thoughts in his recent Xtra Styles PAK 9 for Band-in-a-Box 2020 – Worth It? post at Dr. Dave On Music - make sure you check it out!

Sneak peak...
...PG Music has gone deeper into several styles, using more or fewer instruments, adding unexpected ones, and giving some surprising make-overs. Others are more focused versions of particular styles with more extreme attention to the best of that genre. Other ones combine styles that sound great, such as adding a banjo to a rock or blues track, or a jazz sax to a folk style. There are many wonderful combinations to try out that will expand any songwriter or arranger’s palette. These are the things that make certain songs stand out, and experimenting with them is not just fun (a lot of fun!) but it will expand your horizons on what is possible and even excellent. For instance, my light jazz arrangement worked very well as a country song, which floored me, and also as a folk-alt-jazz fusion. One sax solo was worth the price of admission alone, as it sounds terrific in any of the arrangements.
-"Dr. Dave" Walker

Again we say, "Thank you for the review Dr. Dave!" - we really enjoyed reading this enthusiastic review!
