It was forever in development, but the new Slide To Play is finally live. With the new design comes a new focus, to become the go to source for catching up on what’s important in mobile gaming. We’ll plow through hundreds of stories from dozens of sources every day to bring the most important stories to our readers. The goal is to help our readers stay informed on what’s hot in the mobile game world and maybe even find a few new games to try.
We’ll do the hard work and filter out the duplicate stories, the clickbait, and the uninteresting stuff and bring the core stories to our readers. For each sourced story, click the title or the link to be taken to the original site for full details.
A little about the design — the site is fully responsive. Meaning it looks great on mobile (finally), tablets, and desktop. Whew.
On the front page of Slide to Play there are two main sections. The top holds the most important stories of the last 48 hours. These “double wide” stories are what we curate as the must read stories, reviews, updates, etc. This is the quick catch up for those in a rush.
Below that are other top stories, but perhaps not as important as the top list. The lower list (single wides) can be extended to view as many stories as needed.
All of our stories in the back end are organized under a single game page — a chronological list of stories relating to that particular game. Clicking on the link in the lower right of the story box brings up the game page. Scroll up for newer stories and the game details — scroll down for older stories. This “game hub” gives us a chance to add more features revolving around that game in the future. We’ll post when there’s more to look at — but this will be a key to our forthcoming game discovery engine.
We’ll be making regular updates to the features of the site. Coming soon will be a list of our favorite games, the return of the Game Finder (but on the web, not in an app), and much more.
Take a look around, kick the tires, and give us your feedback. We make this site for you, what do you want to see?
