Introducing Onward State Mobile

Well, this one’s been kicking around in my head for the past couple of months. And today, I’m very excited to announce Onward State Mobile, a mobile-optimized version of the website. Onward State Mobile brings the same Onward State look and feel to your phone to give you an awesome experience on-the-go.

One of my favorite features of Onward State Mobile is the ability to swipe the main content box to view other featured stories. Simply swipe your finger from the left side of the main content box to the right side of the box to cycle through all of our featured content (and swipe in the opposite direction to cycle the other way).

Another feature I really like is that links to the most popular pages on the website are always only a touch or two away. Touch the arrow in the top right corner of the screen to show a menu of some of the links that our users check out most frequently.

So how do you check out Onward State Mobile? Just go to on your smartphone, and the rest will be taken care of.

So far, Onward State Mobile has been tested for iPhone and Android — how does it look on your phone? Let us know in the comments below.

Introducing Onward State CincOS

You suggested, we listened. Welcome to the new Onward State, our fifth major redesign.

Some of the words we frequently heard about our previous redesign were cluttered, confusing, and community column. Not sure what’s up with all of the C-words. In this redesign, we went back to the basics. A single stream brings together all of Onward State’s content. You can choose to filter this stream to show everything, only community content, or only links.

Read on to find out what other exciting changes we made.
