As you might have heard, Engadget Mini is now available for download in the iOS and Google Play store as well as on the web. As our Executive Editor Marc Perton explained that Mini "...is an app that features headlines from Engadget; the best of our social media content from Twitter, Facebook, Google+ and other sources; exclusive headlines, photos, and videos; and our picks for the best tech news from around the web and the social universe."
We'd like you to try out Mini and tell us what you think. Here's how to get Mini on your devices:
I hope you applaud your developers for their hard work. I'm very pleased with how clean Engadget Mini looks. I like the animations of new cards popping in as you scroll, and you guys completely nailed keeping the visuals consistent across the 3 different platforms. Bravo!
First let me apologize, sometimes like the saying goes, if you don't have something good to say maybe you should not say anything at all, but the recent changes in your layout are just irritating and make no sense from a graphic design standpoint. I am a visually oriented person. I enjoy scanning the images on a page and deciding what is interesting to me. When I opened your site today I was greeted by a couple of grainy, low res, unintelligible images. Scrolling down I saw more low res, badly cropped images, one of a portion of some black device, not enough of the image visible for it to provide any information about the story or provide any clues to what it is an image of. Next is the top of someone's head again not enough of the original image to gather who it is. Followed by another over cropped image of the Blackberry logo in which only the bottom half of "ackberry" is visible. Have you completely given up on producing interesting or informative images for your first page? Is it that you have automated the production of these images? If so please. please consider having someone put a little effort into providing interesting informative images for your articles.
