QUOTE.fm Read and iPad App

After months of work we finally did it. Yesterday we introduced QUOTE.fm Read and with it QUOTE.fm for iPad.
I hope you like it as much as we do. So let’s start Social Reading together. Thank you so much for your support. <3

Coming soon: QUOTE.fm Read

Discover, share, and read stories worth your time. Save them to “Read Later” and read them conveniently and wherever you want.

Besides our new video and welcome page we also want to give you a little glimpse into the future of QUOTE.fm today. It’s all about reading great stories on the web, on your iPad and on your iPhone – fully customizable and with your friends and new recommendations only a few clicks or touches away. We call it Social Reading.
We’re really excited about the future, I hope you’re too.

QUOTE.fm Read WIP Demo #3

Today I want to show you the next update of our QUOTE.fm Read Demo, but first I want to say thank you for your feedback last time. Some things really got us thinking.

As planned you can now change the font-family as well as the color themes. All three themes are finished and we like them very much, although minor changes could always happen. The fonts are by no means final. I also replaced all the generic avatars with real ones to get a feel for how it might look in actual use. Furthermore I updated the text view with an image which resizes according to the text’s width. We changed the icon for the social reading mode to match the one the app will feature. A new feature is the „Reset“ button which sets everything back to the defaults. There are a few more little tweaks and changes here and there. Just have a look.

The list of todos is still very long and new ideas pop up everyday.
It really is very exciting build this ‚web app‘.

QUOTE.fm Read WIP Demo #2

Not to long ago I showed you the status of my work on QUOTE.fm Read. I also said I wanted to show you my progress along the way. So today I have a pretty nice update for you, I think. And yes, in the meantime I also did some other things.

So let’s get started with what’s new. The comments are finished and look mostly like the ones you already know from QUOTE.fm.
Furthermore I replaced the standard OS scrollbars in the social reading mode with JavaScript scrollbars. They look and behave almost exactly like the ones you might know from Mac OS X Lion. They looks nice and if you don’t need them they are simply out of your way.
Today I started working on the functioning of the customize buttons. You now can change the font size, line height and width of the text. Up next are the fonts and color themes.

Have a look, click a few buttons, resize the browser and so on and let me know what you think. However, I have to say that everything is work in progress and only tested in Safari and roughly Firefox.
