forum tweak for tab users.

I often use my nexus 7 to browse the forums however I have one small request on behalf off myself and possibly many other tab users.
Would it be possible to place a forward and back button next to the page numbers in threads as at present we have to zoom in took pick the next page number which with big fingers can be frustrating a simple forward/back would save a lot of zooming in and out. The new buttons could be at the top and bottom of each page.
It would make browsing the forums much easier and slicker.
Cheers,
Podman

Re: forum tweak for tab users.

That certainly would help for all touch devices. Also the next and previous page links should be on the right and left (respectively) of the thread's header and footer, thus making it even easier to tap the one you want. Having them too close together you can end up selecting the wrong thing.

I did suggest Tapatalk a while back.
I find it extremely useful on a number of other sites that I visit when out & about.

A like comment button similar that other well known site would be useful sometimes too.
