Phandroid Gets A Phacelift


Introducing the brand new design! We’ve been working on the design/coding for MONTHS and while not every detail is perfect right now, we couldn’t keep our secret any longer. We’re not the only one who has a secret… look at the trick the bot has been hiding:

That’s our brand new video intro on our brand new Phandroid YouTube Channel! Past Phandroid videos were on the MobileRoar YouTube Channel… is our brother site and they got a makeover too. Some would say sister site… but last time we said that we made this guy mad:

You’ll be able to see all our videos by clicking the Video link in the top navigation bar as well. The robot intro will be on ALL our videos so you’ll know whose bringing you the news no matter where you happen to see it. We have a LOT more planned and in store for so stay tuned for even more updates… I assure you they ARE coming.

The other thing is our blue, winking phandroid robot doesn’t yet have a name… any suggestions?

  1. I have a 100 pixel or so gap down the left hand side then the main content which goes off my screen to the right and then more empty blue space, there’s no need for a scroll bar in this day & age, use percentages not absolute numbers!

  2. oh, and the submit button on comments is white on a white background with white text, I have to press tab to see it!

  3. you’re right about submit button… i’ll get on that pronto… not sure how that happened. not sure exactly what you mean about the first comment but our coder will be back shortly to address that issue.

    nothing can ever go completely smooth, can it? really appreciate you pointing out these issues though.

    As for fluid vs. fixed width I think you’ll find people on both sides of the fence. I have a really wide monitor and when the content stretches with % it just looks goofy and uncomfortable to read. What size monitor do you have and at what resolution are you viewing? And browser?

  4. I’m not saying you didn’t…but did you check out the new site on a G1?

  5. would it be too cliche’ to name the robot “Robbie the Robot”?


    just a thought.

    The new layout will be sweeeeeet when its totally finished, with my settings though, I had to click and drag the text to move the page over where i could view it in the middle… I’m sure this is just user error.

    I like it thought (;

  6. I think we got those problems fixed, folks… does everything look good now?

  7. He looks like an Alex. Why not call him Alex?

  8. in retrospect i believe his name should be “Andy the Android” i felt i was a little less than P.C. saying he was a robot lol (:
