The Hammond Jazz Inventory goes Mobile

The number of visits made to The Hammond Jazz Inventory using a mobile device is steadily rising. Currently, mobile traffic is about ten percent of the total. While the site is rendered very well in browsers running on Apple and Android tablets, viewing it with a mobile phone browser is a bit of a hassle.

We are happy to announce the immediate availability of a mobile version of the site which we call "The Mobile Hammond Jazz Inventory". To start with, we unlocked the discography part of our database through this new interface, which is optimized for mobile phones. If a need arises to do so, we add might add the blog posts at a later point in time.

To get an impression of the appearance of the new interface, have a look at the screendumps taken on a HTC desire S phone.

The first picture on the upper left shows The Mobile Hammond Jazz Inventory homepage. It's a simple menu. The upper middle screendump shows the Album exlorer options page, the first selection in the main menu. After tapping on "Explore" at the bottom-right you will end up in the screen shown at the upper right.

If you tap on the album "Blue Mode" you will go to the page shown in the left picture on the row below. From there, you can go to "Melvin Sparks", for example (middle picture below). The last picture right below is a fragment from the "About page", reachable from the main menu on the homepage.

You see, care has been taken to make The Mobile Hammond Jazz Inventory as navigable as her big brother itself.

You can find the site on Make sure to add it to your bookmarks. If you don't have a phone with a browser you can of course visit the mobile site with your desktop browser but it will look a bit weird.

Another use case for the new interface is to use it as an alternative for the "Inventory" menu on this site. Have a look here.

We hope you like it.
