We’ve eluded to it a bit in the past, but along with the changes going on with the new site design, we are also in the early stages of creating mobile apps for both Android and iOS. These are still a ways out, but the goal is to provide more functionality to our users from an ease of use standpoint, and also being able to provide additional features that work better in a mobile app environment (such as better notifications and real-time communication).
Approximately 7 out of 10 visitors to the site are on mobile (which is why the current and upcoming UI changes are a lot more mobile-focused), but I’m interested in finding out how everyone here uses the site from a mobile perspective.
So to make it simple - if you have a moment please respond with whether or not you typically visit the site on desktop or mobile, as well as why you choose one over the other? And if a dedicated mobile app was available, would you use it over the browser version if it at least provided the same functionality? If it provided additional features that are more tuned toward mobile apps?
This isn’t intended to become a super in-depth discussion of what we can achieve with the app, rather it’s more about gauging current usage before we fully jump into the main development. Thanks!
