It was nearly three years ago that WPCentral.com had a site redesign and in 2014, we figured it is time for another update. Part of the changes you now see on www.wpcentral.com and m.wpcentral.com reflect our goal of bringing the Mobile Nations sites (WPCentral, iMore, Android Central, Connectedly, CrackBerry) more in line in terms of design. Another aspect reflects ongoing changes in how people view websites and what many consider "in" for design these days.
I should point out that we have a long way to go with this redesign. In other words, we are not doing it all at once, because from experience that can cause many headaches for our developers, writers, and you, our loyal readers. Instead, we are introducing our new header and some new design elements. There is still plenty of tweaking to ahead, so please be patient (many of you use our apps, anyway, which are unaffected by the site change).
In case you are wondering about the colors, personally I am not a huge fan of them though it is refreshing at the same time. The good news is other colors are coming, in fact, I would like registered user to be able to configure their own colors based on the Windows Phone accent choices; this is something I am pushing hard for so fingers crossed.
At any rate, like all changes, it takes time to get used to and there are many adjustments down the road. If you do find issues, feel free to use our forums to let us know or, please leave a (preferably) polite comment notifying us. Mobile Nations has a very competent team of developers and as someone who watches them work, I can say this stuff is much more complicated than you would think, so stick by us until we sort it out!
