How to get the most out of the Inlander's mobile site

Posted By on Wed, Apr 1, 2015 at 3:01 PM


The Inlander recently revamped our mobile site — making it more beautiful and more powerful — and for those who haven't explored its depths, we wanted to give you a quick tour. 

FIRST... SAVE A SHORTCUT ON YOUR PHONE 
When you first visit Inlander.com on your phone, it should automatically direct to our mobile site (m.inlander.com). Once there, it should ask you if you want to install "this web app on your phone" — meaning you'll save a shortcut on your home screen that automatically takes you to Inlander mobile. (It will look like any regular app that you've downloaded, and it will automatically launch the site when you hit it.)

If for some reason your particular browser doesn't give you a prompt to save the site to your home screen, you can manually save it by hitting the button seen here or a similar one, and then following the prompts to "add to home screen." If you're an Android user, it's as simple as going to Inlander.com on your phone, hitting your menu button and finding the "add to homescreen" link, as explained here


ON THE HOMEPAGE

First, you'll probably notice beautiful, big photos and our great articles. Then you'll see buttons to things you'll use time and again. Search the region's best, most comprehensive listings for restaurants; sort for the nearest locations and by category, neighborhood and name. Search our database of events by category, neighborhood and featured ones selected by staff. Do the same for live music. Or you can also figure out what's playing at the movie theater nearest you.

Scroll just a little, and you'll see our Top Stories. Scroll a bit more, and find our Latest Stories. Scroll again, there are featured events. Down a bit farther, you'll see the most recent slideshows.



ON BLOGLANDER
The Inlander's blog, Bloglander, is where you find the very latest stories — including regular features like "What's Up Today," "Weed Wednesday" and "Cat Friday."


DIG DEEPER 
Hit the navigation button in the top left and find short cuts to everything else: Read all of our stories from Best Of; browse through a variety of recent slideshows; enter to win free stuff in one of our contests; or peruse our issues archives to find a story in a particular edition.
