All-new Salon for smart phones

I’m very pleased to call your attention to the all-new version of mobile Salon, which has a bit more of an app-like appearance and feature set than our previous mobile site. As in the prior version, the main screen is a chronological list of all the latest stories, but this new version also allows you to slice and dice the content by section, blog or topic, as well as seeing what stories are most popular at the moment. On each story you’ll also find access to the comments and share tools, along with pointers to additional stories you might be interested in. We think you’ll find it a superior experience to our former offering, and of course we intend to continue making improvements and we welcome your feedback.

I do want to note that more than 95 percent of our mobile readers are using “smart phones” (almost entirely iPhone and Android devices). Nevertheless, for those with older or less feature-rich phones, we’ve done all we can to make sure this works as well as possible for you too!

PRO TIPS:

For iOS users (iPhone/iPod), you can have the mobile site appear on your home screen as if it were a native app. When you’ve got the site open in Safari, simply tap the “+” sign in the bottom toolbar, then tap “Add to home screen,” and an S icon will appear.

Similarly for Android users: Create a regular bookmark within the browser, then tap and hold a blank spot on your home screen until the pop-up menu appears. Tap “Shortcut” then locate the Salon bookmark you just created.
