Not at the moment, as an application it has a history of being inherantly insecure, plus it now appears to collect an unsavoury amount of user/forum data which is beyond the control of the forum.

As an app some people love it, however many forum owners who are tech savvy have their reservations about it. Many are now looking to drop it at the earliest opportunity.

They also fell out of favour as they originally used licensed forum software in their app which contravened the licencing in force at the time. That licencing has since changed to a BSD licence so it's ok now but originally they effectively stole someone else's work for their own commercial persuits.

Out of interest what device are you using ? The forum should automatically switch to a mobile version if you are using a phone/tablet. Even on standard devices the layout should adjust accordingly if you are using a small screen. Essentially the right hand columns should dissappear on small screens.
