Update to Mobile Site

Today we are shutting down the Discogs “mobile optimized” website. This was a slimmed down version of Discogs that you were presented with when using a mobile or tablet device. For example:

Old Mobile Site
Old Mobile Site

We’ve been getting feedback that this “mobile optimized” site is actually not helpful and harder to use because not all information is there, and you have to tap to open each section. We are currently working towards a responsive website that will look good on all devices. That will be ready later in the year. But for now you will see the same website no matter what device you are using.

Please let us know if you have any feedback. thanks!

    A Discogs official app for Android, iOS and Windows Phone would be really great. It’s a bit difficult to use the site on my Lumia 830.

    “That will be ready later this year [2013].” So, whats happening? (Almost a year later)

    I don’t care for mobile sites as long as I’m missing out on desktop site options. I’ve noticed I’m missing out on things when browsing the website on my iPad lately. When on a release page I can’t see how many people own/want a copy. I thought the option had disappeared but I can still see it on my PC. How do I get this back on iOS?

    Please bring back some sort of mobile channel. If adaptive responsive design on your current website is the way fwd let it be. We badly need a mobile interface since most of us access the web via mobile devices & tablets more than our laptops or desktops. Some of us are basically gagging to have access to our discogs content via the mobile channel for yrs now. Especially for a website which I am interfacing every single day.

    An app would be great with notifications instead of emails

    Fine to me, and glad to here that the mobile version is going to see improvements.
    I was also one of those using the regular version in his smartphone (iPhone in this case).

    Looking forward to see the new improved one!

    I keep trying with third party apps and I must say no any seems good enough so far, and you always end up using the actual website. And I don’t even mean for the market, but just regular release browsing… there should be something closer to the website, being able to navigate through the “master” releases and then the sub-releases, and so on, in a user friendly UI.

    Will wait for this!

    Supplied reality this most people around Lahore get Tiffany And Co Outlet to get distinctive times for instance Eids, wedding parties, valentine’s day and also almost every other festivity a jewelers with Lahore are typically consistent level of competition against each other to give the perfect rings promotions. A Tiffany Outlet Online centre around Lahore will be a Ichra sector when there are plenty of suppliers through now there. Someone can under no circumstances gain with the sector without the need of finding just what exactly they’ve been hunting for. A substantial wide range is sure to draw in the shopper plus bait within shopping for a little something. In addition to the common models including the places worn out for wedding parties, recreational places will be affordable to order and the other have enough money for to order a person. It is far from continually expected to often be laden around serious places any time you are typically your meeting but the truth is might dress yourself in low-priced models proper more than enough to present you an effective glance.

    Understand although it still functioned. Now though it’s usefulness is even less.

    Business Phone Service is ideal for small business and entrepreneurs. It gives a professional image and make sure that you don’t miss a single call. Few months back, I decided to buy Hosted pbx from Telcan. You can get more information here: http://www.telcan.net/businessphone/

    good it was painful. thanks a lot for this, not everyone would have shutted it down, acknowledging the issues for the users

    “i recognize great leaders to their actions”.

    Bravo

    There are issues with mobile apps, anyway. No, I am not
    going to receive any accolades for negatively criticizing
    all the “I” apps. Let me stop digging my own grave and say
    I definitely agreee with your decision to not have a
    mobile optimized site. Somebody said to me on the street
    “You have a PC? What is a PC for Pete’s sake? I call it
    my refuge.

    Never mind the discogs app. I used the mobile interface as a shortcut so the mobile app wasn’t an issue. Could you please put the link back so I can create a shortcut for my iPhone?

    I have a Discogs app called Discollector up for iOS. It used the mobile interface for signing in. In glad that OAuth still works, but having to scroll all over the place is terrible for my users. Is there any way that the sign-in portion can stay mobile-optimized?? I can make a change to my app to point somewhere else, but this isn’t great.

    Great! the mobile site never really took off. Really looking forward to responsive website, and would prefer that to an app anytime. Unless , of course, if the app featured “Shazaam-it to wantslist” and barcode scan.

  • Apr 25,2013 at 15:53

    A Discogs app would be great too! Thanks for getting rid of the mobile optimized site.

  • Apr 24,2013 at 06:51

    Oh I would LOOOOVE to have a Discogs app!! :)

    I’m glad to hear you’re working on a better mobile site, but I’d like it better if you let the choice up to us meanwhile. Like offering to stay either on the mobile site or change for the deckstop site as other sites do.

    Also, while casual users will prefer a responsive / traditional mobile site, those who use it everyday will go for an app. I’m not saying you should choose beetween the two, the best would be to have both to me, because not all users are the same and some mid-range android phones don’t have enough memory for more than 30 apps anyway.
    And who knows, maybe you could then come up with interesting new features that only could exist on an app. I’m thinking of the integration with the library you have over the iOS WhoSampled app for instance; the same could be used to look up for information on the artist you’re listening to in a Discogs app.

    But maybe that’s already in your plans… (?)
