Sign of the Day - ACTIVE

Take Signing Savvy On The Road

Site News   |  Monday, March 29, 2010

By Jillian Winn

One of the most requested features we have had to date is the ability to access the Signing Savvy website on mobile devices. First and foremost among the requests have been for the ability to access the site on the iPhone, which to date does not support the Flash-based video we have on the standard website.

Signing Savvy Now Available for iPhone and iPod Touch

We are happy to announce that we now have a beta version of the Signing Savvy website available for iPhone and iPod Touch! The beta version supports nearly all Signing Savvy features including searching, browsing, flash cards, quizzing, and more.

iPhone

The only things not supported is printing (there is no printing from the iPhone anyway) AND the ability to view "combination videos" as a single video. That is, on the standard website, phrases and fingerspelled words are shown as a single, combined video even though they are actually made up of multiple videos. On the mobile version, phrases and fingerspelled words are shown as multiple videos rather than a single video. We hope to resolve this issue in the future.

The beta version is currently available exclusively to our Signing Savvy members. Note, this is not an "App". Just direct your Safari browser on your iDevice to https://www.signingsavvy.com, login (as a member), and enjoy.

The iPad Cometh - Signing Savvy is Ready

The much anticipated iPad goes on sale this Saturday, April 3. We have tested the mobile Signing Savvy on the iPad and it works wonderfully! The large, high-resolution screen and touch interface makes an excellent way to access Signing Savvy from the coffee shop, airport, or wherever you have Wi-Fi access (or 3G cell access once the WiFi + 3G version of the iPad is released.)

iPhone

Other Mobile Device Support Coming

We are exploring the possibility of expanding the Signing Savvy mobile access to other modern mobile platforms that support web browsing and video playback. Stay tuned for future announcements.
