Is there a scioly.org app? If not, can there be one made? I feel like it's too much of a hassle to use safari or chrome on phones, etc.

What would you want it to do rather then using the mobile website?

I believe the problem is the format of the page when on the phone is odd on safari/chrome. It can be confusing :?

Sometimes the formatting is weird and some parts are cut off. Also, it might be more accessible via app than via browser, search, etc.

The scioly.org mobile site is amazingly good for me; based on my experience, I feel like an app wouldn't be better. I use Chrome on a Pixel 2 XL. What phone/browsers do you have problems with?

Eh, the site worked really well on my previous phone, a Samsung Galaxy S3 (literally over 5 years old at that point).

I think it may be more to do with screen size and how the phone formats it due to that?
