The mobile version of Video Copilot is now online! It’s not going to change the world but it may give you something to do while you’re waiting around town.
One day I was sitting in my doctors office and realized the blog and forum were a bit slow to load over a phone network. I talked to my developer Patrick and said “Let’s make a mobile version of the website!”, he promptly asked “What’s a website?” After sorting that out we moved forward.
The challenge was to make the blog and forum easy to read and load quickly from mobile devices. Our forum is currently set up with PHPbb and there isn’t a mobile template available so we had to “recreate” the layout and port the information. We brought over essential buttons and function but left out some of the clutter. Same goes for the blog.
The tutorials are really secondary because of the practicality of following along on such a small screen and load times are inevitably long. I decided to select 10 of the shorter tutorials plus the entire Basic Training Series. We may add additional tutorials in the future if things pan out.
Just type http://m.videocopilot.net from a mobile device and your in!
