BID Mobile Website
Today the Park Slope Fifth Avenue Business Improvement District launched a smartphone-optimized version of their website (parkslopefifthavenuebid.com).
What does that mean? Well, these days devices like the iPhone render websites in much the same way you would experience them on a laptop or desktop computer (minus Flash). The problem is that the screens on most devices are so small that the user ends up spending a lot of time moving the web page around and zooming in and out to properly view the content.
Now, when you visit the BID site with a Smartphone, you get a more simple, easy-to-use site which contains basic information about the BID, their latest news and the full directory of Businesses within the BID's borders (Dean to 18th Street) complete with addresses and phone numbers!
This should be yet-another way that local residents can easily find what they want and need on Fifth! If you have an iPhone, Blackberry, Android device or pretty much any other brand of smartphone, give it a try and let the BID know what you think at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The site was design by local Park Slope company Mobile Meteor. Check out their site and see what they can do for you!
