The MINFIND team has been working hard to ensure that the web-site displays and works well on different screen sizes. This was a challenge on smartphones, since we had to try to find a way to maximize the image sizes without compromising on the quality of the corresponding details.
We realize that some users might miss the panning function on the old minfind.com mobile site and we are working on a solution that gives the visitor some control over how the specimens are displayed on their phones. We believe this to be a matter of taste, so we will be providing three view options:
1) Cabinet view, allowing the user to pan across a grid of specimen tiles. Image at the top, details below.
2) Vertical item list with specimen on the left, details on the right (as it is now)
3) Single item view, rendered vertically. Maximum Image Size. Details below.
Visitor preferences will be stored as cookies, so that the settings persists over multiple sessions.
Thank you to all input received.
