Lazy Loading Added To Website Tools Store

Do you like fast loading web pages? We do! We recently added 'lazy loading' images to the Website Tools Store. Here's whats up. Everybody hates to wait on a page to load on the Internet. But when we shop we want to see nice big pictures.

The problem is you can't have both, until now. Turns out we only need to load images into a webpage IF it is to be displayed on the screen. So why not wait until the user gets there to load up the images? That is exactly what the new 'lazy loading' script does.

With 'lazy loading' the webpage starts up lickity split (really fast) and can be viewed right away. While unseen images are delayed until that portion of the page is displayed. This is important on really big pages with lots of pictures. Like the 'Website Tools Store' on this website. You can see the effect on this page.

SucculentID Pre-Launch Notice

SucculentID Mobile App
Get ready, get set, go, in a couple of days. We've been updating the SucculentId Mobile App all month. Updates are done, SDKs are compiled and the app has been submitted to the App Stores for review.

On or about 1Mar2019 or there about we will re-launch this app. SID features upgraded imagery, new and expanded plant profiles and two new categories. We also bumped the base design layout from 4 inch to 5.5 inch screen size.

The author graciously agreed to supply new larger, more resolute, prettier pictures for the app. Our biggest concern for this upgrade was overdoing bandwidth. To keep file size down we compressed most of the images. Thereby we were able to upgrade quality and offer a more positive user experience.

Todays lesson is this; compressing images saves file space and decreases load time. We use TinyPng.comOpens a new page to compress images. This free service is awesome. Up till 20 pictures per day or 5mb file size. After that the premium service is unlimited images per day and up to 20mb files, for only $25/yr.

Why did we do this? Was there something wrong with the last version? We did this because technology improves over time. To keep up, an app needs to be rebuilt and re-uploaded to the App Stores about once a year. New rules and regulations need to be adhered to as well.The original ver 1 release was built for older, smaller smartphones. This ver 2.0 features cleaner more modern framwork used by newer mobile devices.

Other reasons for this app update include a lot more content. By reducing file size we were able to include more content. We included 9 new pant profiles and 2 new categories of plant types.

You can get this fantastic app for free and check out all the new succulent plant profiles...
