I guess I don't understand why this is difficult. Other publications seamlessly and automatically reformat their content for a phone size screen, and even allow comments using the embedded keyboard functions which already exist. This would seem so simple, and I would gladly pay a few bucks for such an implementation.

Given the rather old codebase on which the boards are built, automatically reformatting content based on screen size/resolution is a mighty big task. Doing so would require essentially re-building the whole front-end of the boards from scratch. For now, we don't have a mobile boards app in the works. I'm sure that when there's the same clamor for a mobile boards app as there's been for the content app we just released, we'll undertake the task.

Access to "offline reading" of Fool articles? Not so much. Share content on Facebook and Twitter? Never. As in "ever."

There are a lot of folks who do so.
