    Looking at the stats of visitors to this site I can see that only 42% are using a desktop, 39% a mobile and 19% a tablet. It is pretty clear that I need to produce a version that is a little easier to use on mobile devices and I've done some work on it but it is a pretty big job.

    Anyone using an Android phone can try out an app that I created last year as a bit of an experiment. It is a bit buggy but works well enough on my phone so I was happy, it just produces a map of all the nearby pubs then has a link to the PG (and WP) pages for it. https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...epubs&hl=en_GB
    I would prefer just a mobile version like WP

    Where Apps are concerned, my Windows phone is a poor relation after Android and iPhones.

    What's a blue pin mean and how do you get the pin colours different as I can't work it out on my kml files although I am only using free converters.

    Works well for me, blue pin means unknown for real ale, no idea what kml files are.

    The more Blue pins I spotted I thought must be unknowns. Kml files are basically files that convert coordinates to a map format.

    Going back to Scoopgen where the What Pub thread started, the main point on their thread is that some Camra branches (Sheffield in particular) are not updating What Pub at all. It is not just lack of people to visit the pubs, also they are not updating reviews that are sent in to them because no one wants to do the database work! There seems to be similar problems in North Devon that I mentioned earlier. This prompted the comparison with PuG where reviews are instant and other updates are generally quite quick. I wonder what the Sheffield branch would give to have someone like Mr Hatter on their team!

    Hi Alan - we are part of the 42% who don't use 'phones, tablets, bricks or other fancy kit to post our reviews. They are on about flash 'phones and fancy apps (whatever they are). Just ignore it all, like I do.

    I prefer a stone tablet but it gets a bit heavy in the rucksack after a while
