Out With the Old, In With the New

Its official: as of right now, the new design of Shop Your Way is king. The old design has left the building, for good. Users can now enjoy the full benefits – both functional and aesthetic – of the new site.

Growing up is a process. It doesn’t happen in one day. And moving from the old site to the new one was similar – delicate and complex. We were moving away not from an old graphic design, but from a certain mindset that affected the site’s functionality.

During the interim period users could have switched to the old site, mainly as a means to access features that were not yet migrated to the new design. Now that the process is complete, there is no further need of switching back and forth: All of the site’s great features are available in one enticing experience.

The new site’s design emphasizes flexibility. The display adjusts itself to fit your screen of choice. Various filters let you control the information you receive. The new profile page lets you easily jump back and forth from your personal info to your interests to your catalogs – everything in one place.

The quickview offers a quick summary of everything you need to know. Catalogs aggregate all of your stuff in an easy to get display. Everything is fast and easy to understand and configure.

And let’s not forget: very pretty as well. Looks are important!

We hope you enjoy the new site – we have lots of new features and improvements coming up. So stay tuned.

The Fast and the Fabulous

The word today is: speed. It’s a fast moving world, and we aim to not only keep up – we want to be in the lead. The common theme of this week’s features is putting the pedal to the metal. Letting you get all the info you need in a single glance – fast.

Let’s start with a couple of innovations in the quick view department. They don’t call it quick view for nothing, now do they? The idea is to pack all the essentials into one compact and efficient box.

This week we did it in two very important areas – catalogs and people. Do you have the time to sit back and enjoy our lovely new catalogs at your leisure? Great.  If you’re in a hurry though, why not use our new shiny quick view.

Click on a catalog once and you’ll get a compact nifty view of all the important stuff. The catalog’s cover, how many items are in it, their estimated value, creation date, relevant tags etc. You can enter the catalog and check out all the great stuff in it – or make an informed decision to follow it, look at its creator profile or add a tag.

Same goes for the user profile. See a user who seems interesting? Click on the dude, check out the quick view and learn a lot about him in no time at all. His catalogs, his pic against that sleek black background and a whole lot more.

What Was the Question?

Any questions so far? No? Good. And if we are on the subject: one of the cool things about ShopYourWay is the ability to ask questions and see other users’ questions and answers about products you’re interested in. So – we decided to speed things up here as well. From now on you’ll be able to see how many answers there are for a question about a product in one quick efficient glance. Again – it’s about getting the info you need, and fast.

Mobile and Friendly

Needless to say, when it comes to speed mobile is at the front, burning rubber. Did you Shopin lately? From now on there’ll be a clear indication of who shopped in with whom on the site’s newsfeed.

That’s not all: our mobile app now has hot deals – those time limited offers you just can’t miss – and a so much better product page. It’s got a variety of images and an indication of how many users liked it. Better be quick and decide. Speed is the name of the game.
