Hi Kevin

Have any changes been made to Connect Mobile?

Seems to be largely text-based over the last couple of days and 'Show More' now goes to the 'All of Connect' front page.

I have posted a couple of screenshots over here: https://www-secure.symantec.com/connect/forums/changes-connect-mobile 

My phone browser has not changed.
