Use of mobiles and tablets is increasing fast with almost 30% of visits to explorekohchang.com now coming through handheld devices.
We want our mobile and tablet readers to have the best possible experience when using the website on smaller screens. Therefore, after a couple of months of development and re-design, we are delighted to announce the launch of our new responsive mobile website.
We have rebuilt our mobile site from the ground up, focusing on simplicity, reliability and download speed. Our aim is to provide the best user experience for reading our content, whatever your device. The new mobile website is optimised for smaller screens: smartphones and tablets up to seven inches. If you view the site on an iPad (mini or standard), you will see the desktop site.
Each island homepage introduces you to the different sections of the guide (beaches, hotel, restaurants, nightlife, activities, travel, information and there are related pages as you scroll down. Menus are accessed via the facebook style side panel, with island sections always available here. There is a further select menu at the bottom of the screen which means you can quickly move around the site.
Recent Posts are available on the front page screen and once followed take you to a another area of the site, with the side panel listing them all in chronological order.
Rather than designing one size for all mobile devices, you’ll find our new site is responsive and will scale up on mobiles and smaller tablets. The site is optimised for up to seven inch devices, but you can still use it at any size.
We are continuing to work on the design, functionality and user interface, and we are committed to learning from how you use the site so it evolves to best serve all web experiences.
