Paper.li Optimized for Smartphones

Paper.li is now optimized for iPhones, iPods and Android phones. Browse your favorite Paper.lis with your smartphone and experience a completely redesigned interface! (Reading this post with your Smartphone? Check this Paper.li to view the difference)

Our new mobile site will make users' content discovery more enjoyable and enable faster browsing. 

Currently the new mobile version is optimized only for reading Paper.li papers. Optimization of the Paper.li Newsstand and profile pages is under way, along with the inclusion of other smartphones and tablet devices. 

One of the core facets of our philosophy is that the consumption of content should be relevant, pleasurable and accessible to everyone.  Our improved mobile layout achieves this and provides for a great content consumption experience without complexity. This is just a first step of many to come that will elevate the mobile experience for the Paper.li community.

For those of you asking "Why not a native app ?" We do have plans for apps and think that they will be very useful to our micro-publishing community. Until then, we want to offer viewers a far better way to discover content on their mobile phones than they previously could. 

Paper.li Mobile is a work in progress and we'd love to hear your feedback. Drop us a line and tell us what you think about this new interface, what makes (or breaks!) great mobile apps in your opinion and what would be useful for you.

Discover Outstanding Paper.li Publishers

Interviews with the Publishers
Over the course of Paper.li's journey this past year, we have had pleasure to meet, tweet, chat, skype and, or, email with many of you.  We always enjoy and appreciate all of the discussions, feedback and insight that you bring us.  


To say thank you we are pleased to launch the first stage of  the new Paper.li Community Site "The People Behind the Paper.lis" interview series! This is one way for us to say "we really appreciate you " and share your great stories with the rest of the community. 


There is a great story to be told behind every Paper.li and each week we plan on bringing you a new interview. We've got more great stories lined up but if you run across a Paper.li or publisher that you would like to know more about drop us a line we'll connect with them too. 


Good reading, good discovery and thank you community!
