Adafruit site now works even better on Android and iOS devices now!

A customer had a great suggestion in our google+ page, we checked it out and implemented it immediately. Brooke writes -

There is a cool HTML 5 attribute you can use for the input box that makes entering email addresses a bit easier. Instead of input type=text, you use input type=email. And, it gracefully degrades to just a normal text box on any non-HTML 5 compliant browsers.

Here’s some info on this:

I know it is a little thing, but I hit the store pretty frequently and it would just be a nice touch.

Done! Thank you Brooke, and if anyone has other suggestions on making the shopping experience even better for devices – please let us know!

  1. Could you also fix your YouTube embeds to YT’s latest ‘embed’ code? By that I mean the new IFRAME embed method.

    If you do, all your existing videos will “just work” on Android phones and Google Chrome browsers, in HTML5 mode.

    What I have to do now is look at the “Install Plugin” box, open a new window to YouTube, then search their website until I find your video. Once I find it, it plays fine… so updating your embedded YouTube HTML will be a big win for open video standards. :-)

  2. hi scott, most/all of the videos are using iframe and over time all of them will. thanks for posting this and sending in the previous email(s).

  3. Typo… you have Anroid in the title.

    Thanks, as always, for doing all you do.
