Not being a smartphone or tablet user myself and exclusively using my laptop for browsing the internet, it’s no wonder I’m a day-late-and-a-dollar-short in getting a mobile friendly version of The Poached Egg up and running. Shoot, I’m still trying to get used to not having a rotary phone. Okay, that might be a slight exaggeration, but not being a tech geek can be a serious handicap when ones career involves keeping up with the latest in internet technology.
But thankfully, many of you have e-mailed to let me know I need to get with the times and have a more mobile friendly version of TPE, which I hope I’ve accomplished with the just launched www.thepoachedegg.net/mobile.
I played around a bit trying to modify the current desktop/laptop design of TPE to look better and be more navigable across all devices, but with my limited technical skills, all I managed to accomplish was a website that looked crappy and was less navigable on all devices. The solution? Start a completely stand alone mobile friendly version hosted on the same domain as the standard version of TPE.
I’ve been checking the look and feel of it on my wife’s iPhone and it seems to work well, but like I said, I’m no tech geek so it’s up to all of you mobile internet users out there to let me know what I’m doing right and/or wrong to help me make TPE as useful for as many people as possible.
As of now, you’ll only find the most recent posts but I’ll be moving more articles from our extensive archives (of over 7,000 posts and counting) as time allows. In other words, I’ll still be at it this time next year and likely beyond that. In the meantime, I hope you find the new mobile version of TPE useful and will take us with you wherever you go!
