Hey there,

I recently tried to access gw2spidy via smartphone (Google Nexus 4). The site loads fast and looks almost exactly like the desktop version...with one major exception: it is missing the columns "Type" and "Margin". Since i can't view the margin of the items, the site is completely useless to me now. Does anyone know why that is? I am attaching a picture for better understanding. Changing the browser or enabling desktop version didn't help.

Thx in advance!

Probably because it's not a website built for mobile devices.

Maybe you should try contacting them? Not all websites are optimized to work on mobile devices.

You are fooling yourself, user. Nothing here is what it seems. ANet is not the plucky hero, Guru is not an evil empire, and this is not the grand arena.

Questions about moderation? For the love of Balthazar ask them here!

It appears to render that way on my Galaxy S3, too.

GW2Spidy reads an API to generate that data, so there's probably an alternative website or smartphone app with the same functionality fed from the same API. Having no experience aside from GW2Spidy itself, though, I don't know one to recommend. A glance at the Google Play store reveals pages and pages of Guild Wars 2 apps (though naturally malware is a concern on Android; make sure you pick one with a good reputation).

Aside from that, yeah, GW2Spidy is not designed with smart phones in mind. That's ultimately up to its designer.
