Say “Hello” To The New TouchArcade

LogoAs you may have noticed, in the last few days TouchArcade has gotten a complete makeover. Not only do we have a totally fresh new look, but we’re also now sporting total feature parity with the app. We’ve redone the main content column to images and videos take the spotlight, and of course drilling down deeper into any story brings up the full article view complete with the comments section.

The sidebar has been totally redesigned, featuring a quick glance at both our latest game reviews as well as which games are at the top of our realtime hot games list. Under that, you’ll find a slightly redesigned version of the previous forum thread listing which has been spaced out to be easier to read instead of just appearing as a massive wall of text.

If you want to see more of the hot games, the hot games tab at the top of the page displays detailed information with screenshots of the latest and greatest iOS games that are blowing up in our community. Additionally, if instead of a quick look at what everyone is talking about you just want to see the best iOS games, the top reviews tab serves as a constantly-refreshing version of our Best iOS Games features.

What’s cool about both the top reviews and the hot games pages is that when you fiddle with the various buttons and dropdowns on the top right to drill down into each page, those pages themselves are all totally linkable and bookmarkable. So, for instance, if you want to check out the best free racing games of all time, here you go. Using these features you can really dig in to TouchArcade content to find the best games that you’re interested in.

The TouchArcade app watch list also made its way over, just mash the watch list tab at the top of the page and if you’re logged in with your same login you use with the TouchArcade app, you’ll see everything on your watchlist. Additionally, each news story, review, and other subsequent article features a watchlist toggle which will similarly update your TouchArcade game watch list on both your browser and in any copies of the app you have installed across all your devices. It’s super cool, and the best way to keep track of games you’re waiting for sales on or upcoming titles you want to know more about.

We’re still in the process of tweaking fine tuning some things like the forum sidebar display on the right. If you want to contribute to the conversation of what’s still being worked on, swing into the thread in our site feedback forum. While the new site isn’t entirely 100% yet, we’re super happy with what has been an incredibly long project to make TouchArcade’s site design look and feel as good as the content we pump out on a daily basis.
