I don't know if this has been brought up or not and I am not really sure where to post this but is there any plans or would anyone else even support the idea of putting in a movement joystick option. I play on a tablet and it would be so insanely more easier to use if movement could be handled by my left thumb. Just a simple joystick in the bottom left hand corner like pubg mobile or minecraft mobile, that allows me to navigate around without having to painfully click on things, often incorrectly. Just an idea I guess.

HTC Desire 626s with Android 6.0.1 on 4G LTE data through MetroByT-Mobile (formerly MetroPCS) Swipe won't change camera angle, no matter how many times or which direction I try to swipe. Latency issues caused tutorial island to take a lot longer than it should have because tutors and targets move around and wouldn't be where I had tapped by the time the tap registered. Sometimes the taps wouldn't register, too. I made sure to select a server in my country with a low player count, but latency was still an issue. Taps sometimes register as tap&hold and bring up right-click options, sometimes won't register at all. Taps on mini-map or other interfaces (e.g. bank interface) sometimes register as clicks [i]behind[/i] the interface and send my character running somewhere I don't want to go. Couldn't drag&drop in bank interface, so I couldn't create a new tab in bank or rearrange items. It kept spaces open when I pulled items out of bank and put them back exactly where they had been when I re-deposited them (items I only had 1 each of, not some of an item I had multiple of). I came to the forums after a [b]very bad[b] experience with OSRS mobile app and nobody else seems to be having half the problems I had with it.

It also clicks through the right-click drop down menus that sometimes pop up when I tap. And sometimes the tap&hold gets ignored (no right-click menu after I take the time to tap&hold). I saw a fire being lit at the fishing spot, but couldn't even manage to use a raw shrimp on it to cook the shrimp in my inventory.
Edit: It also has click problems on OSRS on my touch-screen PC when I use the touch-screen instead of my mouse. No problems on RS3 with touch-screen, though.

You NEED to make the function button for one click only take ONE click to revert back to normal taps. Right now for some awful reason it gives you a drop down when you press the function button in one tap mode

When managing miscellania you can't switch away from a different keyboard on mobile. For me it opens an emoticon keyboard and I thus can't deposit or withdraw cash from Advisor Ghirim on mobile.

Hello I just bought the iPad Pro + keyboard and all the features work on mobile for the most part, I was just wondering if you guys could make the numbers work on my keyboard for mobile and the arrow keys to be able to move the screen around. It would be awesome and very easy to fix. I figure since now tablets are coming with keyboards make all the keys work one mobile! Thank you guys so much have a great day Woo

Hi, im not sure if this has been brought up already, but could you add a button to the left that when pressed and held down would make any subsequent clicks count as right clicks. Bit like a virtual right click toggle. The current press and hold method is clumsy almost unusable if character and thus camera is moving.

If like to see an option to increase the size of item graphics some how? Seems nearly impossible to do certain tasks without misclicking constantly on my smaller phone. Something like this would accommodate the players not using a tablet or that have fat fingers. I'm using a small screen with fat fingers and do not enjoy mobile very much just because clicking in the inventory or bank usually doesn't go well 😢

Change the way we interact with the mobile controls so it is more easy to use.

Currently, you have half of the options on the left of the screen, and half of the options on the right of the screen. This makes high skill level content very challenging on mobile, and I see this interface setting as a major limiting factor, when OSRS mobile could be so much more.

What I suggest is that you instead have it so we can use one finger as sort of the 'f-key' on desktop, and the other finger as as the actual mouse. Have all of the interface options on the left hand side of the screen, along with a new hold for right click option (allowing instant right clicks) and make the inventory/prayer/etc. interface permanently on the right, rather than flip flopping depending on which interface you select.

I feel this change alone would make tons of activities more easily mobile accessible, and move mobile away from being simply an afk grinding option, into more of an active option, and more of a stand-alone game.

Thank you, hoping you consider this!
