I'm kinda tired but I wanted to update the website because it's taken so long!
There are of course still areas to improve but I hope you'll find the experience MUCH better on your smartphones! No more zoom. There is a mobile optimized navigation pane. The study page layout is much better. The Restudy and Learned flow has been improved. There is a brand new landing page for new visitor, which I hope introduces the website much better. Sign out to see it and let me know what you think!
Please note "Add to Home Screen" is not ready yet, but it is the goal eventually to be able to remove the browser bars so you get an app-like experience.
In terms of compatibility to summarize, most people are on Chrome, Safari and Firefox. All these browsers should have no issue at all. Internet Explorer represents less than 3% of the users, and 96% of these are on IE11 which should be fully supported. IE10 is the minimum target. IE8 and IE9 are not supported, but represent literally 0.012% of the visitors (according to Google Analytics).
In terms of mobile devices, my ideal target is 360px wide in portrait (iPhone 6). Most pages should work down to 320px. I can't realistically optimize for older devices because it's just overwhelming work, but you'll likely find the website usable anyway (and certainly a LOT more usable than before this update =)).
Whew... I need a break
I am going to take a well deserved rest from programming for a few days. I think I might create a social account but I'm not sure... Twitter, Facebook? I am also thinking about writing a more detailed blog post
on Medium to highlight the changes. Keep an eye on the news!
Many thanks to everyone who's helped me with testing the mobile site particularly: Carlos, Torben, Toby, Mark, Ernir, Christian, faneca, Ellie. Special thanks to Ellie who contributed
an SVG version of the Koohii logo (which should be sharper in low and hi dpi screens).
Feedback and Bug Reports
You can now follow Kanji Koohii development in all its gory details on Github. Have a look at planned NEXT items
. For bugs and suggestions create an issue
, or post in the Gitter feedback
. You can do both with a simple Github account
. You can also send me an email
of course if you prefer.
Finally we will have HTTPS
encryption eventually, I hope before the end of February. I still need to research whether it's worth moving servers or just buy a multi-domain SSL certificate.
