New Andromo Website

We first took Andromo live on August 24, 2011 and since then we’ve added a metric tonne of new features and options, but during that time the website has remained pretty much the same. In the coming days or weeks that’s about to change.

Colin has been (very) hard at work the last little while bringing our website into the modern age. And it’s not just a change here or a change there; this is change from the top to the bottom. Even yours truly has even got his client-side hands dirty after learning a little bit of Ruby on Rails at the end of last year. (So…when we launch if you see a problem when you are editing one of your activities that’s probably my fault.)

The new website has three major goals (in no particular order):

  • Responsive Design – We want to look great no matter how you view it. Mobile, Desktop, Tablet, whatever.
  • Modern Look – Times and styles change, and we wanted to modernize the look of the site in the same way we did the app early in 2013.
  • Better User Experience – This one is sort of a given, and the other two go a long way to improve the user experience on our site, but we wanted to make using Andromo better.

Of course this website update will not address every feature request that has been made for the site, but it will set the ground work for a better experience and easier updates going forward.

Now if you’ll excuse me I need to get back to work on updating the Map Activity’s web interface:
