Mobile site live!
Apr 19th 2015, 18:06
Early March we did a pilot with a separate mobile version of Rom Hustler. We decided it was better to go with a single mobile compatible version of the website so that both desktop users and mobile users are able to access the same website in the most optimal format.
We'll make same changes along the road to optimize things further. But meanwhile, enjoy!
Mobile site soon
Mar 5th 2015, 18:23
As some of you might have noticed the last couple of days, we have been testing our mobile version of the site. This is just a pilot for now to test and optimize things before going fully live with it.
Once we fixed all the bugs and outstanding issues, we'll go fully live with this. Stay tuned!
