Allpar changes

by David Zatz on

Allpar has implemented new menus again, around one year after the last change. Following current Internet fashion, we now have “vertical menus” rather than dropdowns, which appear only after you click on the “three rows” icon.


The advantage of this setup is that, on larger-than-phone screens, the search box appears on the top of the page, and there is no need to spend screen real estate on a banner logo. The down-side is that one more click is needed  to see the menus, then another click to reveal the contents of each menu. (The menu content is mostly the same.)

We did not make these changes on the forums page — yet — due to the complexity of the forums.

We also fixed an important problem on the news page which prevented some phone and iPad users from seeing current news.

As always, we will be testing the results of these changes and making any needed adjustments. We will continue to work on finding ways to make Allpar better for phone users, who are now nearly half of all our readers.

David Zatz founded Allpar in 1998 (based on a site he had begun in 1993-94), after years of writing reviews for retail trades. He has been quoted by the New York Times, the Daily Telegraph, the Detroit News, and USA Today. Before making Allpar a full-time career, he was a consultant in organizational psychology. You can reach him by using our contact form (much preferred) or by calling (313) 766-2304
