GeoHive and Historic Monument Viewer

Hi all,
Does anyone know the best way to view the Ordnance Survey of Ireland GeoHive or Archaeology.ie Historic Monument Viewer on mobile devices? They are amazing resources but I find them finicky to view on android when I am out in the field. oes anyone know good ways to use them on mobile?

the OSI one simply does not work for me on mobile - i've not tried the archaeology.ie one as it seems to run on the same platform so i've not bothered.

The geolocation facility has never worked for me on any platform

Geolocation works for me on the archaeology.ie mobile web, but often when you try to scroll the screen, the flipping thing reloads, which is a pain.

Tbh, none of the webgis-based viewers are that great for mobile, but that's a fault of touchscreens and not the web technology.

I mostly use https://heritagemaps.ie/WebApps/HeritageMaps/index.html rather than the NMS or OSI viewers, because for me it offers a much better range of layers
