We have rebuilt our mobile site from the ground up, focusing on improving user experience, reliability and download speed. Our aim is to provide the best user experience for reading our content, whatever your device. The new mobile website is a major first step towards that responsive goal, though it is currently only optimised for smaller screens: smartphones and tablets up to seven inches. If you view the site on an iPad or anything larger, you will still see the desktop site.
ExperienceThe site is designed to provide a better reading experience, with a focus on simplicity. On any mobile device, you will be presented with a clear view of the news with minimal distraction.
On our new homepage and the main section pages, we hope providing more detail for each of the main stories in the form of a headline, explanatory text and an image will provide more context on the news and make it easier for you to find the stories you are interested in exploring further.
We've switched from standard webfonts to our bespoke Guardian Egyptian typeface and increased the size which we think provides a great reading experience. From each story you'll find related articles to allow you to easily continue your exploration of a specific story. Images within stories will also increase in size as you view with larger screens.
If you follow our live blogs, you'll find these now auto-update every minute and football fans will find we've improved our live scores page to update every 10 seconds.
Speed and reliabilityOverall you will find the site fast to use, as we've optimised the code to make it more efficient to download. We've used the very latest technologies to allow us to deliver content quicker, while also ensuring the site is accessible to all and functionally rich. Our new architecture allows the site to be much more robust during high-traffic periods.
