We’re pleased to announce (thanks to a tip from @cnyradio Twitter follower @pwdunn) that CNYRadio.com now has a special “mobile version” which should appear automatically when you view the site from a smartphone or tablet. We realize it isn’t a “new” concept, but we had good reason for waiting this long.
Anyone who visits this site with a mobile device frequently may have notice we briefly tried out a different mobile platform some time ago (we don’t even remember exactly how long ago — maybe a year or so?) and we weren’t very impressed with the results.
This new mobile version is based on a platform called “wptouch” and so far, your editor is pleased with the way it looks on a smartphone. By stripping out graphics, sidebars and other “bells and whistles,” you might find the site loads much faster, which can be very helpful when you’re on a mobile connection. It also squeezes everything into a narrower space, so you won’t have to scroll left/right, and hopefully you won’t have to “zoom in” either.
If you don’t want the mobile version (which might be the case on larger-screen tablets) just scroll down to the bottom to switch from the mobile version to the original.
