We have begun our efforts to improve the experience of SongSelect on mobile devices by having a mobile friendly version available to our customers in 2011. The mobile version of SongSelect will be a new website developed in HTML5 that will take advantage of the work we have already done for the API.
What does all the techno-babble really mean you ask?
It means that we will have a mobile friendly version of the SongSelect site. Instead of creating a device specific “app” we are developing a website that will work with most smart phones and tablets.
Why not start with an iPhone or iPad APP?
We have equal love for Apple, Android, Windows Phone 7 and newer Blackberries here on the SongSelect team. We see our current customers using a variety device types and would like to start by making something that works with as many of our customers as possible.
It doesn’t mean we won’t ever make a device specific app…we simply recognize that the mobile device market is still maturing. HTML5 allows us to extend the core functions of SongSelect to the most customers possible while we watch, listen, learn, and adapt to this growing market.
