    Does anyone know anyway to set mobile view differently for specific websites.
    For some websites I prefer mobile view, for others like the BBC I prefer desktop view.
    Is there anyway to save preferences for individual sites? (Sounds like an idea for an app!)

    You could turn it off in settings but bookmark the mobile url for sites you prefer that way.

    You could try Dolphin Browser HD.

    There is an addon for it called "Dolphin Desktop Toggles", which makes it easy to switch between the mobile and the desktop versions of a site...

    IIRC xScope's paid version allows you to specify user agent per site.

    Here is what I do: I Google the site and in the search results, quite often it gives you an option (by the little link under the result) to retrieve the site formatted for mobile. I then save the bookmark.

    Thanks guys. I 'll give these a go. I have noticed that if you access
    the mobile version of TV catch-up without mobile view set the channels won 't load so I will see if any of the above resolve that issue.
