AndroidPIT Gets Redesigned, Now Easier to Use Than Ever Before

Authored by: Steven Blum — Sep 19, 2012

 

If you're a regular visitor to AndroidPIT, chances are you've noticed something different about our homepage and blog in the past hour. Yes, AndroidPIT has been redesigned to be more user-friendly than ever before.

On our homepage, you can now see at a glance the latest news and app reviews, including a selection of some of our most popular downloadable apps in the App Center. You no longer have to switch pages as all of the information is available to you from the homepage.

But our development team has gone even further, streamlining navigation and making it easier to get the information you need quickly and easily. The main menu now has five main navigational elements. When you move your mouse over a category like "Forum," you can now jump to other areas of our site from the sub-menu. This will allow first time and returning visitors a chance to go directly to the gadget or news topic of their choice, without a lot of jumping around. Those wanting to change the language of the website can now find the option at the bottom of the page.

The new design of our homepage is just the beginning of the complete overhaul of AndroidPIT. Developers are hard at work on the next round of big changes. Let us know how you like the new look in the comments section below!

    I either visit when an article is published (& sent via email) or whenever I find a post of interest from Google + .... so far, I like what I see (keep it up) :)

    Will take a few days to get used to it, but it seems to take less clicks to get where I need to go. That is a good thing. Keep up the good work folks.

    Yep, the site looks good, but I rarely enter the site through the front door, so to speak, I come in via the RSS feed and Google+.

    Any plans to also redesign the appcenter android app?

  • Dvoraak Sep 19, 2012 Link to comment

    @Steven - Glad to help

    @Patrick - Yep, accounts confirmed

  • Steven Blum Sep 19, 2012 Link to comment

    Oh strange...I'll let the tech team know about that. Thanks for bringing this to my attention, Dvoraak.

    @Dvoraak, did you confirm your account? That might be it

    I like the direction it's headed but is this why the site email isn't working? It's saying I've reached the limit even though I've never sent one before.
