As I was surfing Yoors on my phone this evening I noticed a few subtle changes in the website's layout for mobile.
Did I just not notice this look before or is this a little Christmas gift from the Yoors team to us Yoorsies?
Here are the things I've spotted so far:
1. A simplified navigation menu
When using my phone in portrait view a menu now shows up at the bottom of the screen.
It provides quick access to a few main sections (following, pools, etc). I really like how clean and organized everything looks.
Once you click on one of the icons, the usual left-hand side menu opens in full.
I did experience some difficulty in closing this left-hand side menu while still in portrait view. I have to turn the phone around to landscape view to get the left-pointing arrow that allows me to close the menu. I am using Samsung's default browser, so it might be a browser-specific issue. I'll test it further to find out.
2. A simplified editor
From what I recall, the editor on mobile now seems to have fewer features and no access to templates/advanced settings, but on the flip side it has much faster response.
I am testing it right now to write this quick post and it is working pretty smoothly.
I'm also adding a couple of screenshots to show you how everything looks on my phone.
I've actually had a few issues adding these - a couple of times nothing happened after I selected the images to add - but I eventually managed to do it.
Another issue I've experienced is that when I stop typing and close the keyboard to have a fuller view of the post it keeps going back to the first line no matter where I was in the text. Again, this issue could be specific to the browser I am using, so further testing is needed.
What I like about this look:
Clean and easy to navigate
A few things I've had trouble with:
Closing the left-hand side menu in portrait view; adding images to a post; editor always taking me to the first line of a post when I close the keyboard
What about you? Did you also notice these changes? And what do you think of them? Looking forward to hearing from you in the comments!
