For now I cannot find anything working. As far as I have checked:
- Genesis client does not work on Nokia browser nor Opera
- there is no Chrome nor Firefox version on Symbian
- I can't find the client for Symbian

Thanx for help!

No MUD apps for Nokia? I know there are on Google Play Store and Appstore.

I've only used my phone (iPhone 5S) to play on genesis to run automated monster killing rails when I'm bored somewhere that I do not have a computer. Anything else, aside from maybe automated herb gathering and crafting, would be completely pointless without a bluetooth keyboard or something. I'm not saying it's entirely impossible, just not exactly practical. Hell, I don't even think my netbook can adequately handle the webclient because the settings menu does not do well in anything under 1200x800 it seems. Plus, when I try to speed run, it bugs out more often than not. I can't even imagine what kind of headache that'd be like on my phone which has even less processing power and screen real estate.

Someone had mentioned that genesis would have to make their own app in order to best hit the phone and tablet markets. Well, there are already plenty of mud'ing apps already out there. If anything, Genesis should appeal to the groups that already have apps out and ask that they preload Genesis in their apps.

Now that I think about it, oddly enough, I used to play Genesis on my nook color a lot when I was in college. I used to read on that thing almost every day though, so it wasn't abnormal for me to have it. However, I didn't know javascript back then, so I was literally typing everything except for some of the most basic of basic stuff that I had triggered. Plus, I was stuck on tutorial island, so it wasn't like I was doing anything too exciting either.

cMUD says it will host Genesis on its preload list for $800.

I play on my Nokia 1320 6" windows phone and my windows desktop.

IE and Edge browsers respectively.

Aliases and triggers really help to make playing on the phone more enjoyable.
