Starting right now it just got a little easier to get your horror fix on the go. When you visit Bloody Disgusting on select mobile devices you’ll automatically be taken to our new mobile site which is faster, leaner, and optimized for your phone or tablet. When you just want the news, it’s the perfect way to stay up to date and get the latest headlines. You can easily share and bookmark stories, and of course whenever you want the full Bloody Disgusting experience you can choose to view the desktop version at anytime.
If your device isn’t supported yet don’t worry, we have other options for you too! Read on for more info, supported devices, and a little preview of what it looks like!
Right now you can access our mobile site using the following,
iPad (Mobile Safari on iOS 4.3+, Google Chrome on iOS 5+)
iPhone (Mobile Safari on iOS 5+, Google Chrome on iOS 5+)
Nexus 7 (Google Chrome)
Kindle Fire (Amazon Silk)
If your device isn’t listed don’t worry, we’re hoping to broaden support soon. In the meantime you can access our content on the go via our Google Currents edition. Simply download the Google Currents app and susbscribe to Bloody Disgusting. You can grab it here or by scanning this QR Code with your phone.
If you do see the mobile site when visiting from your device, here are some helpful things to know.
Here’s what you’ll see when landing on the mobile site from your iPad, I’ve highlighted the bottom corner which is where you tap to favorite a story, or head back to the desktop site. You can tap on any story to view the article, or swipe up and down to view more headlines. Just like the desktop site you can also select specific sections at the top of the page.
After tapping in the bottom corner this side window will slide out, here you can easily go back to the desktop site or add a page to your favorites for later.
For even quicker access to our mobile site, add it to your desktop as a shortcut and we’re always only a click away. On your iOS device click the share icon and choose “add to desktop” as seen below. On your Android device in Chrome, create a bookmark via the menu, find it in the bookmark list, long-press on it, and tap “Add to home screen”.
You’ll find that this site runs MUCH faster and smoother on your device, and hopefully makes it easier for you to get the latest horror news. We’ll update you when new devices are supported via our Twitter, so if you’re not following us already follow us at @bdisgusting. We also have a full mobile site in the works that’ll bring you even more BD on the go.
