When You Just Gotta Get Your Streetsblog No Matter Where You Are

Mobile_SF_Sblog.jpgWe’re very happy to announce that all you brilliant and dedicated Streetsblog readers can now take your favorite blog with you almost anywhere, even when your service is a bit dodgier than you’d prefer.  Introducing the beta Streetsblog Mobile for your handheld, a stripped down version of the blog for your phone’s browser, one we hope facilitates reading while you’re on BART or in that droning client meeting and you just have to keep up on that comment thread about personal rapid transit.

We want to stress the "beta" portion of this endeavor and we want you to help us make it better. You’ll notice that when you log into your phone’s browser, the interface should be much simpler and should load faster than before. The application should work on most mobile devices with web browsers, though if yours doesn’t work, let us know. You can add your witty and erudite comments at the bottom of the posts and there is a "tips@sf.streetsblog.org" email for citizen reporting and urgent updates that we should know about.  

Please take a second to load Streetsblog Mobile and tell us what you think.  We’d like your feedback and your help improving our application.  

  • Awesome! Loads quick, looks sharp. Well done.

Welcome to the New and Improved Streetsblog

|
For the first time in nearly nine years, we’re debuting a sitewide redesign of Streetsblog. The last time we overhauled the site, few people were reading news on their phones, Twitter was just finding a mass audience, and no one thought of Facebook as the world’s most important media platform. Streetsblog was a single non-profit with reporters […]
