doogal.co.uk is more mobile friendly

I’ve been trying to ignore mobile devices for a long time. Although doogal.co.uk has always been available on mobile phones, so long as you were happy to squint and zoom in and out a lot, it’s never been particularly useable. I’d kind of hoped that as more people started browsing the web from their phones, the phones would get bigger screens and I’d get away without doing anything. Whilst some of the phones have got bigger, it seems a lot of people don’t want to talk into a phone the size of a paperback book. Understandable really, they don’t want to look like dicks.

On top of that, Google keeps telling me my site isn’t mobile friendly and it’s got to a point where a significant percentage of my visitors are using small devices to access the site, so I figured it was time to bite the bullet and fix it. So now if you visit from a smart phone, chances are you’ll see the more mobile friendly version of the site. In fact if you squidge your desktop browser to a small enough size, you’ll also see the mobile layout. Of course, just like the regular desktop site, it’s butt ugly but there is a reason why web design doesn’t appear on my CV!

But if you spot anything broken, please let me know in the comments or email.
