    Pretty epic release today folks. But you get to guess what the new feature is. Here's your hint.

    Shrink the width of your browser to less than... 600px I believe is the cutoff.

    Fair warning, weirdness may follow if you shrink and unshrink your window. We did our best to allow it, but there are probably still a few bugs. ;)

    Shrinking and unshrinking only causes weirdness in the chat so far as I can tell.

    No, we're not implementing a "link" to the mobile side. There isn't really a different side. The design of the site is simply responsive to the size of the screen (or window).

    Also, FWIW, for those of you who have been experiencing the tab crash issues (the Aww snap page) in Chrome, it looks like the bug was assigned to an engineer at Google this morning. Hopefully I'll have some more news soon.

    At first I thought it was an iOS App - long awaited for. Then I realized it's a mobile site. A step in the right direction... I'm assuming the mobile site won't take into effect on the iPad due to a larger screen?

    You are correct @Study23. The iPad will display the full version of the site. We actually released a fixed version of the site for iPad when we released SmartScore. So you can interact with the full site. There is still some weirdness and zooming doesn't work - but because of some bugs in Mobile Safari that's probably as good as it gets for the time being. :\

    iOS app costs an exorbitant amount of money if I'm not mistaken.

    The iOS developer program costs money, but it's just $100 per year. Not that much.

    The backend code is written in scala, so scalac is the compiler. The frontend presentation stuff (HTML, JavaScript) isn't compiled so there are no compilers for that.

    There is currently no native app under development per se, except for some wrappers that will present the site within a browser. You should be able to use the site on iPad, though we've gotten some reports that there are issues that came from our mobile tweaks in this release. We're looking into those. As for a stylus, the iPad does not support stylus input directly, and neither will we. The drawing tool should still be visible and the stylus should behave somewhat decently on there, in theory (I haven't tested it). But again, the iPad is supposedly having a couple of issues since this release.

    We're not java. We're scala. Although we do run inside the JVM, there is a difference. :P That said, the problem is likely with our JavaScript we're running client side. @shadowfiend has said already that we're going to be focusing on performance again ASAP and do our best to exterminate these issues.

    Yeah, it's hitting us too. This is the side effect of having such a small team. To focus on performance, we have to sacrifice forward movement. It's a constant juggling game.
