If you're visiting ProductionNext on a phone, you'll notice that it's not very well set up for it. That's true. As we said, we're still in beta...

Right now, ProductionNext is only intended for use on desktop browsers and iPad-sized tablets. We'll be dealing with the phone situation in the future; meahwhile, we hope to see you over on the desktop side!
