Going Mobile

We've been getting a lot of requests from users who want to access QT from their smart phones. But QT just wasn't designed with phones in mind. The files are large and take too long to download, and the layout does not accommodate the smaller screens of a phone.

But enough people asked that I figured it was time to do something about it. So, a new version of QT, designed specifically for smart phones, is now available. It can't do everything the main site does, but close.

If you are familiar with the main site, then using the mobile version should be straightforward and easy. The interface may be different, but the concept is the same.

Here are some of the things you can do with QT Mobile:
  • Search for agents and publishers.
  • Manage your query lists.
  • Read profiles, including statistics and comments.
  • Submit comments.
  • Update the status of your queries.
  • Manage projects and folders.
Now you can research agents while you're stuck in traffic, or waiting for a bus. Got a few minutes while you're waiting for you son's soccer practice to end? Go through the comments posted on some of your agents of interest.

To see some sample screens from QT Mobile, please go to querytracker.net/whats_new.php#100813

To access QT Mobile, point your mobile browser to m.QueryTracker.net

QT Mobile is available to premium members only. If you are not a premium member, but would like to test your mobile device with QT Mobile, point your mobile browser to m.QueryTracker.net/preview.php. Here you can see how your particular device formats QT Mobile.

And one last thing. The site could not be tested with all the different phones on the market -- there's just too many of them. If it doesn't seem to work properly with your phone, please let us know.
