Mobango introduces a new improved user experience for Tablets.

Mobango always focuses on improving the user experience (UX)  for its developers and users. This means we are constantly reviewing and updating the usability as we did with the registration and uploading area. Now going a step further we have redefined the complete UX for tablet users across all operating system which support HTML browsing.
With the new interface for tablets, the user experience on Mobango will improve amazingly. The new changes also allow us to provide more visibility to the developers and their apps. some of the key changes are-

  • Responsive interface – We have ensured that the user has a fabulously smooth experience. The interface has been associated to provide the best arrangement of the content as per the Tab’s orientation. The navigation of the site is promoted to be effortless and very touch-friendly with increased display size of icons and other info.

  • Big Banner space for promoted/ featured apps – The topmost area of the site is allocated for a big banner space to provide premium visibility to promoted apps. A larger area is allocated for these apps on the screen giving instant visibility.

  • Enhanced media details page – The media details page has been improved to include multiple screenshots of the app within the same screen space to give a better understanding of the app. The star ratings and reviews are now given a better placement thus giving prominence to information which is a deciding factor  for a user before initiating download.

  • Social media – The new Tab version includes more social media badges to promote sharing on more platforms like Facebook, Twitter, Google+ and Pinterest.

  • New properties – Mobango has introduced 3 new properties which will provide more visibility for the tablet users.
    • Editor’s choice – This section is a collection of the best apps hand-picked by Mobango team for its users.
    • Trending apps – This is a dynamic section showing the most downloaded content in the last 6 hours. This is to ensure that users get a fresh installment of apps everytime they come on the site.
    • Top developers – Mobango select the best developers based on the quality and performance of the apps they have and these developers get a chance to be featured in this area. This gives a lot of visibility to the developer upfront.

We would love to know your feedback on these new changes as we believe that the users are the best judge . You can share your feedback here or feel free to leave a comment or connect with us through Linkedin, Twitter, Google +, Facebook

New External Video Player

Hi everybody!

In the last weeks we developed a new external video flash player to replace the current one with extended features and new design.

Below you can find an example of the new Video Player

How does it work?
Go at the bottom of the video details page, and select the permalink. Then paste it in your blog, in your website or in one of your profiles on another site.

Permalink

The new features of the player are…

Completely new layout/design.

The external player now is in “pausemode: simply click on the play button in the  middle of the video screen and  the video will start.

In addition to the standard buttons (play/pause, replay and volume), there are three new ones: Share, Send2Cell & Fullscreen;

Share: clicking on “Share”, a new window will get opened that lets you send a page to friends via e-mail or (if logged in) internal message;

Send2Cell: when you click on this icon, a new window will be opened with the file detail page of the displayed video;

FullScreen: to display videos in fullscreen mode.

Actions at the end of a video: after a video has been displayed, three large buttons with orange background appear with the most relevant actions -, Share and Send2Cell.

Download progress: the video player visually shows the progress of the download of a video. 

Have fun!
