there's also a dropdown at the very bottom of the page where you can switch between the new style and the old blue crack theme (or mobile):

I have never used the mobile app (when I'm on my phone I go through the browser), and I have never used another display other than Blue Crack.

I still use the original layout when I'm on a desktop. The newer one looks like a default skin that comes stock with vBulletin.

What's different about it?

I only get the internet via my ohone; when I go on this site sometimes I get the simpler (mobile?) version. I scroll down to the bottom and get the - view the full website prompt and the full version.

Why would this app be better?

The app is a stable version designed around the web forum’s framework (IPv6 or whatever interference is built on). I think it ports that framework to tapatalk’s, a generalized mobile web forum app. That means it’s not just a mobile website but an application designed around your phone’s operating system. Scrolls work better, there’s no pages “embedded” in the browser anymore. Instead it’s just the app (though the reverse exists, you can embed a browser in the app).

Generally I would say it’s faster and more stable and makes you the user less prone towards accidentally hitting something on the web page you didn’t mean to tap. Downfalls are that images don’t always load (but you can use the “view in web browser” feature if that’s the case) and you do require a little bit of forum knowledge to know what subforums you’re going into if you maneuver that way (because you don’t get the descriptions).

I realize that it might not do well to speak ill of other websites, though that's not what this response is intended to do at all -- but I often wondered how @U2 got away with having all that copyrighted material on the site (transcriptions of old articles, etc). I loved that stuff, but I always wondered if they might get shut down because of it, the same way U2/Principle/Island/someone corporate tried to shut down fansites that had lyrics all those years ago.

I know that Matt had posted that he was burnt out on the band and was stepping away, and then had to return about a thorny legal issue this past summer. Shortly after that their news archive became much less user friendly and harder to navigate, which made me wonder if someone had come after them for copyright issues. Maybe we'll never know what tipped it all, but I couldn't help wondering...

Seems odd that half the band would show up at the @U2 anniversary party and then sue them.

Larry always struck me as the sole band member who posts on interference

I can't see a situation where the band sued them, but I can see a situation where the site finally got on the radar of someone like Rolling Stone, who decided to go after them for copyright infringement. Again, just speculation.

Though it was weird that just four years after having such an epic party, Matt said he was burned-out on the band.

I don't know, seeing Best Thing, Get Out, and American Soul released as singles despite being the three worst songs on the album would be enough to disillusion anyone.

He obsessed with another, completely mediocre, band iirc. I think they're a religious band, but not Christian Rock. I might be making that part up, though. Isn't McGee a religious nut?

Maybe Larry is really not on board with Ryan Tedder, and is that guy who only seems to post about Tedder just to vent to someone.
