AndroGeoid Now “Mobile”-ized

This was pretty dumb on my part: until yesterday, this site was virtually unreadable on most Android devices, thanks to poor formatting choices and my WordPress setup. That’s now been rectified, and the new mobile version should now be fully usable on any Android unit; portrait or landscape for units with 800 x 480 or higher res screens, landscape better for lower-res screens.


Figure 1: Visiting the site with a mobile device, it will default to the new mobile view; if you really want to go back to the web version, there’s a button at the bottom of every screen that lets you do that. Most recent posts will be listed at the top; tapping on any title will take you to that post.


Figure 2: I’ve gone through every post to make sure that the graphics images will fit in a 480-wide screen, perfect for use in Portrait mode. Unfortunately, this meant removing some of the formatting that made them look better on a computer screen. But they’re not bad now, the posts are still perfectly readable in any computer’s browser (or as perfectly readable as they’ve ever been).


Figure 3: Tapping on the dropdown arrow at upper-right brings up menus to take you back to the home page, subscribe to the RSS feed, or email me directly.


Figure 4: Tapping on the Categories tab at the top brings up a list of category tabs; tap on any of them to bring up a list of posts related to that category.

AFAIK, it should work fine on any Android phone, and even (*shudder*) on other smartphone platforms like iOS, Blackberry and WebOS. Feel free to check it out on your smartphone, and if you run into any problems with display or use, please drop me a line.
