      Members Only Fluid Forum View   08/08/2017

      Fluid forum view allows members only to get right to the meat of this community; the topics. You can toggle between your preferred forum view just below to the left on the main forum entrance. You will see three icons. Try them out and see what you prefer.   Fluid view allows you, if you are a signed up member, to see the newest topic posts in either all forums (select none or all) or in just your favorite forums (select the ones you want to see when you come to Fishing Minnesota). It keeps and in real time with respect to Topic posts and lets YOU SELECT YOUR FAVORITE FORUMS. It can make things fun and easy. This is especially true for less experienced visitors raised on social media. If you, as a members want more specific topics, you can even select a single forum to view. Let us take a look at fluid view in action. We will then break it down and explain how it works in more detail.   The video shows the topic list and the forum filter box. As you can see, it is easy to change the topic list by changing the selected forums. This view replaces the traditional list of categories and forums.   Of course, members only can change the view to better suit your way of browsing.   You will notice a “grid” option. We have moved the grid forum theme setting into the main forum settings. This makes it an option for members only to choose. This screenshot also shows the removal of the forum breadcrumb in fluid view mode. Fluid view remembers your last forum selection so you don’t lose your place when you go back to the listing. The benefit of this feature is easy to see. It removes a potential barrier of entry for members only. It puts the spotlight on topics themselves, and not the hierarchical forum structure. You as a member will enjoy viewing many forums at once and switching between them without leaving the page. We hope that fluid view, the new functionality is an asset that you enjoy .

Help with cellphone

My contract is up with At&t and I'm thinking of upgrading to an Iphone or Samsung infuse. I really don't care about the specs just want the best functioning phone in the Becker/Ottertail county area.

My questions are

1. whats the better Operating systems in this area. Apple or Android?

2. I also want the Navionics app and want to know if anyone around the DL area has used it and what they think about the app.

3. I've heard the Android phones don't work outside of DL. Is this true? And if so does the Iphone work outside of DL?

I would like all the cool stuff that comes with the smartphones but if I can't make a simple phone call when I'm out at the cabin, or use the navionics app when I'm actually on the water then I'll just stay with the regular cell phone.

i have navionics for android. the map data is saved to your phone. you dont need a cell signal to use it. you should always be able to look at your maps no matter where you are. and as long as you are outside you should be able to get a gps fix and it will show your position.

as far as android phones not working in some places... i dont know who told you that but i travel all the time with mine and have never had any issues with verizon.

both ios and android use the same cell radio technology so they both should work everywhere.

now different manufacturers might make better antennas than the other so one phone could do better than the other i guess.

as far as the navionics app itself. its just ok. its very convenient and affordable at around 10-15 bucks but dont expect amazing detail or accuracy. some lakes are better than others.

good choices on the phones though. its kind of all personal preference. apple will probably have better battery life than the samsung. partly because samsung has a bigger screen. either way you go you can expect to have to charge it every day.

I guess I'll chime in and say I have a Droid X and have not had really any issue at all getting cell coverage through Verizon in and around the DL area. Can't comment on iPhone...it may work just as well.

Thanks guys! I appreciate the feedback. It's hard to make a decision when a 2yr contract is on the line. This is why I love this forum.
