EthicsDaily.com has launched a mobile version of its website, making it easier for readers on the go to access content.
With mobile platforms accounting for more and more media consumption, a mobile site was past due for EthicsDaily.com, which launched in 2002 and was redeployed afresh in 2009. EthicsDaily.com is a division of the Nashville-based Baptist Center for Ethics.
The mobile site has six main sections: the latest articles from EthicsDaily.com, editorials, a featured video, an “about us” section, and a feedback form. Readers may actually preview the mobile version on a laptop or desktop by visiting http://m.ethicsdaily.com/.
The most accessed sections will likely be the latest articles and editorials, as readers stay current with content and read one of the more popular items on the site: editorials by EthicsDaily.com executive editor Robert Parham.
“EthicsDaily.com’s mobile site makes it much easier to read our articles on an iPhone, Android, Blackberry, etc.,” said Cliff Vaughn, managing editor and media producer for EthicsDaily.com. “Headlines, teasers, photos, links and actual content are all there, but in a format that’s delivered with a small screen in mind.”
The EthicsDaily.com website automatically detects if the user is on a mobile device and pushes the mobile site out to the reader if so.
It also gives the user the choice to view the site in “classic” mode, which is the full site readers are accustomed to.
The mobile site was built by EthicsDaily.com’s web editor, Joel Emerson, using a cost-effective mobile technology platform called DudaMobile.
EthicsDaily.com has been testing the mobile platform for several months and making adjustments to enhance the experience.
EthicsDaily.com readers may “bookmark” EthicsDaily.com on their mobile devices and turn the bookmark into a home screen icon. Watch the videos below to do this on an iOS or Android device.
