iPhone-Optimized!

Tuesday, March 25th, 2008

To coincide with our recent Crosswords for iPhone announcement, we’ve optimized our website for iPhone and iPod touch users! If you’re reading this via Safari on your iPhone or iPod touch, you should see an easier to navigate website – no more pinching or pulling! That’s just so stressful to have to rearrange the size of the text to fix in your phone that’s why sometimes is good to use these things for anxiety relief, in case of being too much.

We’ve also added a new sub-forum to our support forum*, specifically for iPhone app queries. Feel free to check it out and chime in!

As always, if you have any questions, comments or feedback, please feel free to contact us!

* Unfortunately, iPhone-optimization for the forum is still in development.

Our Redesign

Friday, September 7th, 2007

Welcome back!

As you may have noticed, we’ve revamped our site!  First, let me introduce myself: My name is Glenn, and I’m the Stand Alone, Inc. web guy, and I oversaw and implemented our recent redesign. The redesign, as conceptualized by Ben and myself, was intended to make the site easier and more intuitive to navigate without sacrificing the more advanced features that our users enjoy, and I believe we succeeded! To show appreciation to our views for being patience, we want to give out five wooden watches, so keep posted because good things are coming.

While most of the redesign was focused on layout and presentation, there are a few new site features, such as a smarter download page that automatically serves up the best download based on your browser. We also streamlined our catalog and download index pages, made our version pickers more obvious, and a bunch of other minor tweaks that make the site a bit easier to peruse.

As always, we love to hear comments and suggestions on how to improve the site, so please let us know what you like, what you don’t like, or what you’d like to see added or improved!
