    Good news, you can actually use BHW on your mobile phone without TOPIFY or Tapatalk (even though that was removed) and it's very functional.

    BlackhatWorld Mobile Website - The most USEFUL function you never even knew about.

    Most of you probably don't know that it's possible and available to iPhone and Android:

    Step 1.
    Visit BHW in "desktop" via your mobile app (it may popup with Topify download splash screens, just close them)

    Step 2.
    Scroll to the bottom of the page and click on the menu option in the bottom left.
    step3.PNG

    Step 3.
    From the roller menu, scroll down and select "default mobile style"
    step4.PNG

    Step 4.
    Enjoy a full mobile friendly version of BHW.
    step5.PNG

    Step 5:
    Bookmark the page in your mobile browser and then simply... enjoy BHW on your mobile in a simple, well formatted mobile site.

    Small update:
    After speaking with a few people in person they told me they use the forum less since Tapatalk access was removed from BHW, I found this option when digging about for a responsive alternative as it's a default Vbulletin option, just not publicised on the forum.

    It's now my go to mobile forum (although I don't post so much) :burnout:

    Here are my three easy step.

    1. Load BHW
    2. Close Topify Banner
    3. Use BHW

    Don't forget to add thanks rep and donate to my PayPal account for this useful information.

    You must use the comedy app for such witty responses paired with a samsung galaxy note 3 to read the small text.

    I still love you since you told me in Vegas! I really hardly visit the forum anymore since Tapatalk is not supported anymore.

    Agreed, Tapatalk was awesome, I was going to try hack it up to get it to work, but then found this simple solution and decided to spend my time making $$$$ :p

    Definitely useful for some people, not for others.

    I prefer to use the main site and scroll/zoom myself, but that's how I am with all sites really.

    This. The reason is because the "Mobile" version of most vBulletin forums doesn't have a lot of the functionality the full version has. Try checking how many people have "Thanked" you in the mobile version. These things are important to me.

    Wow, so much tension here.

    I didn't say it was the best thing in the world, I didn't say it was better, I didn't say it was worse... It's just an alternative option that's available for free, that's all. Not everybody can be master of the universe and know everything in the world already like you.

    Some people like it, some don't, most people I spoke to weren't aware it was even an option so thought I'd share it, those that tried it liked it. It's a nice easy way to consume BHW content on the go IMO especially when using a mobile phone one handed, for example on busy public transport, when pinch and zoom isn't very practical.

    No tension at all, I guess most people do not see what the big deal is in just using the forum in normal mode on their mobile.

    Who said anything about "big deal"? I guess you surveyed "most people" to get that statistic?
    I was just sharing a feature that people I met said would be useful to know about.

    Had any paypal donations yet or are you busy enlarging it with your fingers?

    Do you understand the difference between "I guess most people" and "Most people". The first is an assumption, the second is a statement. You see I did not take a survey, I was merely guessing that it is not such a big deal to most people, as when you open BHW in a normal mobile browser, it is more than easy to use. Therefore I guess most people are not that interested in a mobile version, however that is just my guess.

    Yes I have had several PayPal donations so far, thanks for the post.

    Well... if we're talking semantics, then yes, clearly I understand the difference. However, I think you might be struggling a little. Let me explain...

    If you are to "guess" or make an assumption in a thread where you've already clearly stated your preference, this is a completely pointless exercise, especially when your personal preference is against the proposed suggestion of the overall thread, this doesn't actually add any value whatsoever to the casual reader of this thread other than to let people know that Mr "Micky Fu" doesn't like to use the mobile version - Well great, thanks for that but... Mr Micky Fu isn't actually the center of the universe and let's be honest... That information is not actually useful to anyone at all... Especially when you've said it three times in the one thread.

    All this does is simply add to your post count or "noise" on the forum, which some might argue makes you look better, when you're actually just spouting out nonsense like this and not really providing any value to the thread other than provide or shout about your own personal assumption, preferences and opinion to something you're adverse to anyway. To which may I add you seem to be busy doing across this entire forum.

    To your reply and attempt at trying to sound slightly smarter... Obviously you didn't "take a survey" because that would imply you actually took part in one, which would in-turn imply you were part of your own survey segment of which your guess of "most people" would be biased towards a non-mobile based site given your personal preference to:
    I'm delighted you received some monster clicks towards your donations via PayPal. Maybe you could take a nice lady on a date so she can enlarge it with her fingers (the forum on your cell obviously). Perhaps you could invest in a linguistics course, or just boost your post count further to sell some services.

    I do not know if you are aware yet, and you may not be able to see it due to that huge chip on your shoulder, but forums are places where people share opinions, and often that opinion may not agree with yours. Have a good day sir.

    I see you have removed your begging for thanks from the end of your post, well done sir.

    I do not recall once in this thread saying "I do not like the mobile version", perhaps you could invest in a few reading courses.

    Why is this option 'hidden'? Make it more visible for mobile traffic. Just my 2 cents.

    Don't question anything here unless you want to have your head bitten off for writing a comment.

    Hahaha. You're hilarious, do you come up with this stuff on your own or are you smashing that comedy app? Maybe you're using the "sound like a tool" app! If so it's working out pretty well for you!
    Lets consider your "chip in shoulder" comment and let me reference your initial response to a friendly post (your poor grammar has been included):

    Now, as most logical people will agree, that to me that sounds like someone with a HUGE CHIP on their shoulder.


    Regarding your very poorly worded idiom
    Well... MickyFu, that makes no sense at all, if I DID have a chip on my shoulder (like you) I'd actually be able to see much better... Poorly worded.


    I'm all for opinions, and I feel you really should take your own advice, I'm not sure if you noticed but this was what I was saying all along:

    MrApricot gave his opinion for example, but the difference here was that he wasn't trying to be a smart ass like you.
    He also didn't need to tell the thread three times that Mr Micky Fu likes to "enlarge it with his fingers" every opportunity he could, which was really valuable advice.


    As for me saying "click on thanks" I actually removed that as you replied, I was editing the post, but I wasn't quick enough to remove it before your mass spam as many posts on BHW as possible mission crossed over my small thread and within seconds... BOOM... you'd posted your very own "chip on shoulder" comment because you're so busy building up your awesome profile commenting as quickly as you can on each and every available thread with your super valuable content and your amazing invaluable opinions </sarcasm>


    In true beaten man fashion you're signing off by trying to take the moral high ground, an awesome sight to see. I think you've left your mark here, MickyFu, what a guy, I love you bro! You stumble so elegantly around your words but you're a real trooper, good luck with the 5,000 post mission :You_Rock_
