Today we’ve released our latest website update which includes lots of design improvements as well as under the hood improvements. We constantly focus on improving the user experience on our website and app and today’s update is proof on how dedicated we are on providing you the best possible experience while you are on our website. Let’s get started with what we’ve changed…we are so excited about this!
The most obvious update you’ll see are the icons. We have “retinized” the whole website, including social media icons, glyphs and mini icons. Everything looks sharp, clean & smooth.
Another great update for every user is the sidebar. We’ve re-consider every single element and redesigned it in order to match better with our website’s minimalistic design. We’ve researched and analysed which ones are the most important widgets for the user and why. We have removed advertisements in order to unclutter the UI and replaced them with useful trending categories and a new hot collections widget.
We’ve also added Ribbons in order to mark new gadget releases and staff picks therefore from today all new gadgets that we publish daily will be marked with the “New” green ribbon for the next 24 hours.
Lastly, we’ve pushed some major under the hood improvements which decreased the loading time of the images by 60% so now you can browse our website even faster!
*We are currently working on the next update which will go live within the next week
