It has been a productive month for the PriceMe development team: yet another version packed with improvements was launched earlier this evening. Here are some of the new features:
Support for Google Login
You can now use your Gmail account to login to PriceMe. No need to create yet another account. Why don’t you check it out and add a review to PriceMe? A few months ago we added support for Facebook login.
Bug fix in pagination for the catalog pages
There was an issue with the pagination when sorting was applied.
For example, viewing mobile phones and sorting by price worked fine for the first page, but the sorting was lost when viewing the second page.
Nicer looking tabs on product pages
We added some more spaces between the tabs both on the home page and on the product pages.
The whole tab area is now clickable, not only the text on tab. This will hopefully make it easier to navigate using the different tabs.
Like Us on Facebook campaign
We now provide easy access to our Facebook page from the product pages (please see the right column). Like us on Facebook, and you’ll enter a draw to win $100 every month.
Popularity cloud for related categories
You can now easily find the most popular and related categories for a particular brand by viewing our cloud. Popular categories are display in larger font size. The popularity is based on the number of views the last thirty days.
Performance improvement for price history page
We now load the number of retailers for the price history page separately from the price history graph. First the price history graph is loaded using Ajax so that users can view the most important information first, and then a second Ajax call retrieves the number of retailers.
Simplified registration page
Many PriceMe users have requested us to simplify the registration process. We listened, and removed a few fields. The only fields required are first name, email address and a password.
