More Literotica iPhone Improvements

Friday, August 22nd, 2008

A few new updates on the Literotica iPhone Site:

1. The member search feature is now live.

2. The categories are now displayed on the New Stories page, as requested by everyone. :-)

We’ve also got some more improvements coming to the main Literotica site. Everything seems to take way longer than we thought it would (as it has been since Literotica started), but we are making good progress on a lot of new features and design upgrades.

Enjoy your summer and check back soon!

Literotica iPhone Mobile Site Launched

Monday, July 14th, 2008

Just a quick summer update to let everyone know that the Literotica iPhone site went live on Friday, the same day as the worldwide launch of the new 3G Apple iPhone. This is the first version of the iPhone site, and it’s pretty much in BETA still, but we think it’s a good start. In the future, we’ll be adding more features and tweaking it to improve the existing features.

If you have an iPhone, the mobile phone site can be found here:

i.Literotica.com

Let me know if you find any bugs or have suggestions for improvements.

Thanks! :-)

Update on Voting + Favorites Features

Friday, January 18th, 2008

Hi Everyone! I appreciate all of the suggestions that you have been sending in and posting, both here and on the Lit forum.

This will just be another quick update on the recent changes to the Literotica story page Voting Element and Add To Favorites buttons. So far, everything seems to be working fine. It’s still early, but voting seems to have increased slightly after the changes were launched on the site.

Since the launch, we have made the following additions changes, based on user feedback:

Voting Element:

1. The stars now have numbers on them, to link them more closely to the previous system where each vote was a number between one and five.

2. The text on a few of the votes has been changed. The current text for each vote is:

  • 1. I Hated It!
  • 2. I Didn’t Like It Much.
  • 3. Liked It – Keep On Writing.
  • 4. Really Liked It – Good Read!
  • 5. Loved It – One Of The Best!!

Add To Favorites Button:

1. With the launch of the easy to use buttons, we’ve seen an increase in the number of registered users adding items to their Favorites List. Because of this, and based on current and previous user feedback, we have increased the number of “Favorites” that each user can have from 10 to 25 – for both Stories and Authors.

Additionally:

1. There has been some concern that the new voting system may result in a slight drop in the overall vote scores because readers may only give a “5″ to stories that they think are truly exceptional. I don’t know yet if the voting scores will go down at all based on the new system, but even if the middle did change slightly, it may not be a bad thing if the stories that score close to perfect are ones that readers felt were above and beyond the average.

2. We have had some questions asking about changing the voting system from a 1-5 system to a 1-10 system. That is something that we may consider for the future, but we don’t have immediate plans to do it.

3. Some members have been asking about the Public Comment Element (the system where you leave a public comment on a story) voting versus the new on-page voting element. We are already working on standardizing those two systems and, once the Public Comment Element is updated, readers will be able to leave a comment with or without voting.

I think that’s all I have for now. Just wanted to give everyone an update on what I’ve been working on and what’s concerns I’ve been hearing. Thanks for the ongoing feedback and another update should be coming soon! :)
