Ways to read the Spectator are evolving all the time and we’re today delighted to introduce a tablet- and smartphone-friendly version of our website. In technical terms, we’ve moved to a responsive design that automatically reconfigures itself for whatever device you’re reading it on — be it a smartphone, tablet or desktop computer.

In non-technical terms, we’ll now be a lot easier to read on your iPhone, your tablet and everything else besides. Given than half of you now read us on some kind of mobile device, we hope you’ll notice the difference. The Guardian and BBC now both work in this way, and we agree with them this is the future of web design. If you’re browsing on a smartphone, this is how it new Spectator site looks:


Or on an tablet:


But if you’re reading on a desktop computer, there’s no difference. We’re taking this in stages and this is a so-called beta launch. We’d be grateful for your thoughts and feedback, and we’ll keep improving based on your suggestions. We hope you enjoy this new version of The Spectator’s website.
