With some 50 million unique monthly visitors MySpace is a pioneer in the social networking landscape. When Deedod was asked to partner with MySpace to re-develop the core areas of the MySpace mobile site we were all too happy to take on the challenge. We dove in head first eager and excited to implement the designs that MySpace had put together.
The new site featured HTML5/CSS3 technologies and also included functionality for swipe hand gestures in order to integrate slideshow/article swiping user interactions. Also, in a more experimental fashion we developed a page advertising experience that featured flipping tiles that covered the entire page and exposed a full page ad for users to view/click. The tile animations used CSS transitions to take advantage of native iPhone/Android hardware acceleration.
In the end the site was released with great success that included increased traffic metrics to the MySpace mobile site.
