New Mobile Site

posted by : Jon Kroupa on 03/06/2011

I recently got a smart phone and the first thing I did was to browse to the site of At Wit's End Comics. Turns out the site was pretty terrible for mobile viewing. So as of Friday evening there has been a mobile version which greatly improves navagation.

The site should auto detect phones and redirect you to the mobile site. If it doesn't please email me at jonk@atwitsendcomics.com with your device name and I'll get it fixed. You can always get back to the main area by using the link at the bottom of the page (and vise versa).

The mobile version has the following properties:

  • reduced layout
  • viewport which should auto zoom to fill screen
  • three most recent posts
  • quick search
  • three cell comics fill whole screen

The mobile version doesn't presently support the travel area. That is not an area which gets much traffic, and it is usually a "visit once a year" kind of thing.

I also added the tags below the comics. If you like a particular genre of comics you can click on the tag and see all comics of the same type. I had to go through and tag every single comic, and thirteen of them I literally had no idea what to tag them as. I ultimately created a tag named "random" and assigned them to it.

That's cool. Now if I could just get a smart phone myself. . .What did you end up getting?
