Maxgo.com, its like HBO GO, prompts to go to the app store. I was hoping for a solution to their being no Roku Max Go app. I was hoping it allowed webpages to load as a computer too like the Skyfire browser.
Can you set your mobile browser to use the "Desktop" user agent before going to the site? I know Dolphin HD does that on the Droid. But again, the key would be to set it for Desktop before trying to go to the site
I'm not a Cinemax subscriber, but I set my Dolphin Browser on my Droid for for the Desktop user agent, and then went to maxgo.com. I was NOT prompted for any apps.
Then I exited the Dolphin browser, (while choosing to clear the cache on exit). I started it up again and set the user agent for "Android Default". I went back to Maxgo, and sure enough, I was at a screen that was pointing me to iPhone/iPad and Android apps.
So, if you have a Droid, get Dolphin HD, and set the user agent (in settings) for "Desktop".
