Evanston Now upgrades look for mobile

Evanston Now has a different look this morning — designed to better serve users of smart phones and tablet computers.

The new look features what’s called responsive site design — in which the web page adjusts its appearance to fit the size of the screen you’re using — whether that’s a giant screen on your desktop or a small screen on your mobile phone.

The transition has been a major project, and to get it done we’ve had to make some compromises.

You may notice that comments submitted over the last week have disappeared. You may also notice that a few recent stories and event listings didn’t make the transition — at least not yet. And, for the moment, the crime map has gone away.

We plan to add more features to the site in coming months and refine the responsive design to give users an even better experience.

As always, we appreciate your comments.
