You may have noticed a lot of activity here over the past two weeks. It’s been a few years since MobileGenealogy.com was updated. Some things occurred, both job and personal-related, and I was unable to maintain the site. That’s all in the past, and I’m bringing this site back, as you can see. I’ve kept it online, and there has been some traffic, plus some comments from people asking questions, etc., so we’ll build on that. As I said below, it may seem like it favors a certain platform, but that’s just until we have the whole site updated which will take another week or so.
As far as the look of the site, I’m working on making it load faster and making it “lighter” so that it’s easier to browse from some of the web browsers available on PDAs and smartphones. I’m also making it easier to navigate. I’m exploring having a style setup for lower resolution browsers while maintaining a style for larger resolutions.
Forums are a new addition to MobileGenealogy.com, and not much else needs to be said. They will cover the topics discussed on the site. If you have comments, this would be the best place to post them, as well as requests for help, comparisons, etc.
There was a pretty narrow focus in the past, mainly on PDAs (and certain smartphones) and genealogy software for said devices.
The focus is not changing, it is still going to be genealogy and mobile devices. What’s different is that the mobile field has changed drastically in a few areas: “Netbooks”, iPhones, genealogy podcasts, and the overall drop in price for many PDAs and smartphones, making them available to quite a few more people.
