I like to log on Torn some mornings on my mobile. All I really want to do is train, I dont bother with crimes as it takes to much effort. This idea can make that easier.
I have created this image below and its basically what would come up on mobile +. As you can see, you dont have as many options as on full Torn and you cant go on quite a few pages. More could be added but I think these are the important ones for people who want to log on, on their mobile quickly.
You can train on the same page without it having to load the page all over again. Please have a look at the image and read the info below the image for more information.
A sneak peak of the minimal images version below.
What are the flags on the side?
This is an easy way to fly to another country. If you don't know what the country is then clicking on it will give you the are you sure you want to fly to Country message.
What if I click on the flag by accident? Do I fly away?
No, you will receive the are you sure message.
Wont this take ages to load on a mobile phone?
Current torn currently has more images on some pages and it loads. Even if it is slowly. The forums for example.
What if I click on take by accident?
You will be given about 5 seconds and then have to click take again when it flashes up green. This is to avoid it having to load the whole page again.
What messages are shown?
It only shows messages you have received since your last login. With a maximum of 10.
How do crimes work?
Click on the crime you want to do and then Next step. Then just click on the crime. You will not get a message that you have done the crime. This is to avoid having to load again.
What other items show up on the item section?
Only items that can be used to energy or nerve. Apart from the business class ticket.
Why is this needed?
Its a fast way to get around on your mobile while on torn. If you only want to train then you can login and within moments you can have trained. Without ever leaving the page.
Is this a torn app?
No. Its just like when you login on your mobile now. Just have this screen instead of the normal looking torn.
Can you customise this?
I was thinking that allowing people a section where they can decide what they want on their page would be good.

It will work or not?:)
If you mean will it work as in would it be possible to make. I think the admins could put something like this together. Nothing new is really being created until its all together. Even then its only new because old parts have been put together. I have no idea on the difficulty but using parts of pages that already exists surely makes it a bit easier.
I actually thought of something similar to this the other day, but instead make an app for the phone instead. The app would basically consist of what you mentioned(trains, crimes, travel, and a few other misc. tasks I'm forgetting as of this moment.) It would come in major handy when Im on a smoke break at work because I do not have computer access there. Rated +
Great Idea!!!! I have my ipad but, even with that, it would be faster, less time spent neglecting my work--haha... and when I can covertly use my phone, it would take much less time!
that's the main reason I don't use my phone at work!
this is a great idwa even though ched said not to suggest something like this in the forums, but at the end of the day its not perfect and his mobile site sucks when it comes to the clumsiness that comes with most phone come with. for instance with the iphone; i have to completely zoom in to insure i don't click something other than gym and i dont ever dare clicking use points anymore considering last time i accidentally leveled up. Either the mobile site needs to improve or the mobile site needs to improve.
Also the are you sure you want to do things for important stuff should definitely be added.
Btw: Energy and Nerve refilld could be buttons instead of pictures.
Also, it would be nice to see events tab.
I think in full TC you should have a possibility to personalize you mobile page, because someone will want to visit the forum while using mobile and someone else will want to bet bookies. Maybe some day ...
