As some of you may have noticed, there has been quite a few enhancements happening to WP Remote over the last few weeks. We have 2 major improvement areas: Mobile friendly and usability.

More Mobile Friendly

We have always had basic CSS media queries on WP Remote so it was usable on mobile devices, but not great. We have focused on the optimising the UI at much smaller screen sizes. Check out a couple of shots of this in action:

We still have work to do in regards to mobile, but this should at least make it more manageable if you need to update a plugin away from your computer! We have also added a loading splash page for iOS and adding WP Remote to your homescreen on an iPhone 5 will no longer run letter-boxed.

UI Changes

We have made quite a lot of small UI tweaks across WP Remote, we have a new bar for filtering sites above the sites list, new styles for the site statuses. Nothing groundbreaking, but we are always trying to improve things on a micro-scale to making things more intuitive to use and more visually appealing.

To only show sites with updates to Core, Plugins or Themes you can use the filter buttons. Click multiple to combine them.

 

Under the Hood Changes

We have been working very hard over the past few weeks making lots of improvements to the backend of WP Remote. This should mean faster loading of sites, more reliability and of course Safari will be snappier ;)
