Last week we ran a survey to find out whether you would use idiomag on your mobile handset, and what suggestions and comments you have about this. It was great to get so many responses, and to hear how interested you are in mobile!
As a summary of the results…
The vast majority of people were interested in the fundamentals - getting news, reviews and recommendations based on your favourite artists. I guess that’s obvious.
It was great to hear the huge range of mobile sites/apps that you already use! Here is a wordcloud of your favourite mobile sites (graphic created using wordle).
Based on your feedback, we will certainly be focusing on providing a mobile website with speed and simplicity - to allow you fast and easy access to the latest news and reviews about the artists you love, as well recommendations.
It’s interesting to see that there is a strong Apple following at idiomag… Here is a wordcloud of the phones you use.
Given that a lot of you already use smart phones, we will work to provide flexibility so that those of you who want to, can enjoy a multimedia experience.
We are also interested in the possibilities of integrating with other services, and in the future, possibly with location-based information (such as gigs), to link idiomag into the wider mobile community. Watch this space…
Anyway, thats enough from me. Thanks again for another awesome survey response - and for your messages of support. It always makes us smile when so many of you contribute ideas and thoughts.
