New Mobile Version of Dark Roasted Blend







Check out Dark Roasted Blend's new version for mobile devices!

Just point your browser to this url - http://mobile.darkroastedblend.com - and see the new mobile site version for your smart phones.

Or, you can just use our normal url - www.darkroastedblend.com - it should redirect automatically, if it detects your mobile phone browser.

Let us know if you like it and what other features you would like to see there.

When reading our site on an iPad, you can also check us out at the popular Flipboard app, inside the "Cool Curators" section.

As always, you can email your suggestions to Avi Abrams at abramsv@gmail.com

Nice to see support for small screens too. I would like to see an option to allow going to the main site though. Sometimes tablets are detected to be a mobile device, but have decent network speed and a good sized screen, so the regular display would work.

Thanks

I agree Paul.

We'll see what we can do. We already NOT redirecting to iPads. All iPads should show our normal version.

It's just harder to detect other sorts of tablets, but we're working on it.

I don't want to seem too harsh, but the mobile site is pretty much unusable for me. Three main points:

1. *Never* disable pinch-to-zoom! There is simply no justification for disabling this useful feature other than designer arrogance and shortsightedness.

2. *Always* provide a way for users to go to the full site.

3. Make sure your mobile re-director doesn't break incoming links!

If you address these issues I'll once again be able to waste time on your lovely site when I'm browsing on my phone.

Kind regards.
