Yesterday Global Grind cleaned up its interface making the content on the site easier to navigate. They also stepped up their widget game a bit with the release of 2 additional widgets that can be found in a users profile. The widgets allow a user to syndicate content that they have submitted on Global Grind or content they have favorited on the site, check ours here:
Bloggers love widgets and cool stuff like this that they can play with or help syndicate what they do, I won’t lie I love widgets but have to try to keep my addiction under control so I won’t overwhelm a user’s experience.
We are told by Navarrow Wright, the company’s CEO, that these new widgets have a use beyond just putting them on a site:
“Another application is if blogger currently does not have RSS feeds or widgets on their site they just create a profile on GG. Grind their content then place the widget code on their site or others.”
Nice, though I would love the opportunity to skin them as well. We were told this is coming in a larger enhancement roll-out very soon.
Back to the interface…
It may just be me but since I have a design background, but I immediately noticed all the changes that were implemented, I naturally tend to look at UI first though. However, on the other hand when discussing with Markus the changes weren’t immediately apparent to him. I am not going to point out any of the interface changes in this post just because I want to know from you:
Do you notice the difference?
If you do, does it help you find what you are looking for on the site easier?Category: Design | Tags: Design, global grind, navarrow wright, User Experience, user interface, Widgets
