Try it on iPhone
There’s a few handy little things you may not have noticed, though. For example, if you’re on a desktop computer, or anything with a fairly large screen size, you’ll see the default sign in screen – with icons for each of our main apps, some handy links at the bottom of the screen, and of course the all important email and password fields. However, if you load the same page on your iPhone or any other small screen mobile device running a modern browser, you’ll get a specifically designed screen that cuts out everything you don’t need to see on a mobile device. That’s not all – we’ve gone an extra step and implemented an optimised design for when your mobile device in in landscape or portrait. We hope this will make it easier for people to keep up to date with the status of their site while on the go.
Responsive Web Design
For those web designers among you, we optimised for these different screen sizes by utilising some of the modern technologies available in CSS3. This is an increasingly popular method called “responsive” web design – pages adapt to suit the device they’re being shown on. There’s a great article about responsive web design on A List Apart.
Form + Function
Another little feature you may not have noticed – the app icons (for LiveStats, Trends and Settings) you see when using the sign in screen on the desktop are not just for looks. Simply click any of them while entering your email and password and you’ll be taken straight to the chosen app. It’s only a small thing but we hope it’ll save a second or two of your valuable time that could be spent watching your site’s traffic.
