Mobile friendly – check!

Spin Rewriter users seem to be a serious and business-oriented bunch! ­čśÇ Why? Because even today, in 2017, we’re only seeing less than 5% of all traffic coming to our website from mobile devices such as smartphones.

The remaining 95% of our visitors are using either powerful desktop machines, modern laptops, or sleek tablets like the newest iPads… which means they all get to take in the full Spin Rewriter experience. Which is awesome!

However, should the 5% mobile users suffer for it? Absolutely not! I’m sure that all of us occasionally check our emails on the go, on our smartphones… and if there’s an email that looks interesting enough, we tend to click through to see what’s on the other side. So, at any time we can end up on a website that hasn’t been optimized for mobile devices and that either doesn’t load properly, or gives us a terrible experience. Which is NOT how we do things around here. ­čśÇ

With this in mind, we’ve just pushed out a further-improved mobile responsive = mobile friendly version of Spin Rewriter that guarantees an awesome user experience regardless of the device you’re using. We think you’re going to love it!

We’re now officially MOBILE READY

Hooray!

The mobile version of the official Spin Rewriter website now passes all tests when it comes to delivering a truly great user experience on mobile devices with small screens.

You’ve seen some of the changes that we’ve recently rolled out in my previous post on mobile responsiveness, and today I’d like to share this with you:

Spin Rewriter - Mobile User Experience

Spin Rewriter – Mobile User Experience

The result of the test┬áabove means that our website┬ánow┬ápasses all challenges┬áthat stood in our way on the path to a truly┬ágreat mobile user experience. From large and friendly texts, generous whitespace, larger targets for links and buttons… which also includes a completely redesigned header and footer of the website… all the way to mobile-optimized images and so on and so forth.

Thanks to everyone on the team who┬áhad a hand in delivering these updates, and we couldn’t be more excited about it all! ­čśÇ Hope you like it!

Spin Rewriter – Mobile Beta

As I mentioned in my post last week, we’ve been hard at work rolling out┬áproper mobile responsiveness and a truly GREAT user experience for users of┬ámobile devices when using┬áSpin Rewriter.

We’ve just rolled out the first public beta version of our full-mobile support, and here’s what the changes look like so far:

Spin Rewriter - Mobile Responsiveness

Spin Rewriter on mobile devices – Before and After

As you can see, the header of the website has been completely redesigned. We went from displaying small links to subpages that are hard to read, to having a big, friendly “Menu” button that displays all of the available subpages in an easy-to-read format.

We’ve also entirely redesigned the footer of the page — jump over to SpinRewriter.com website on a mobile device to check it out. ­čśë

Other than that, we’ve done a ton of work to convert all parts of the websites into a format that delivers a great experience on mobile devices. This includes larger fonts, paragraphs with more white-space, larger “targets” when it comes to clicking links and buttons, optimized images and backgrounds, etc.

Hope you like the progress, and we’ll definitely keep you posted! ­čśÇ

Mobile responsiveness for Spin Rewriter

More and more people are using mobile devices such as phones and tablets to do the majority of their internet browsing.

This recently resulted in a big (and very helpful) trend that Wikipedia is calling responsive web design. What it means is, websites should be able to adapt to the device they’re being viewed on.

If someone is visiting a website from┬áthe tiny screen on their mobile phone, the website should shrink down and rearrange in a way that makes fonts nice, big and readable, while pushing the less important bits of the website towards the bottom of the page. The visitor can still find and read all parts of the website, they’re just structured differently and in a way that allows for a great mobile experience.

Spin Rewriter has always been designed in a way that allowed for a decent mobile experience — but not necessarily a great one. And we’re always striving for perfection.

This is why we’re working crazy hard on bringing proper mobile responsiveness and a truly GREAT user experience on mobile devices to Spin Rewriter as soon as possible, and we’re quite confident we’ll be able to roll it out even before Spin Rewriter 7.0 goes live on October 12th!

Here’s to progress! ­čśÇ

Full support for tablets on the horizon

With the market share of tablets growing steadily and reaching new heights every month, we’re thinking of pushing out a new tablet-specific user interface that will allow all iPad, ASUS eee Pad, Samsung Tab etc. users to make the most of our technology.

While Spin Rewriter already works fine on all tablets (all functionality is supported by mobile browsers) and we have quite a number of happy iPad users, this new interface might make things even easier for tablet users. Stay tuned! ­čśë
