As many of you know, Adobe’s Flash technology is on its way out, at least for the kind of animations and banners that most companies feature on their homepages. Flash animations do not work with Apple’s mobile devices, which now constitute a large chunk of the web browsing public. In general, Flash animations do not work well with any “touch” device because of technical limitations. In order to keep our clients at the forefront of web and mobile technology, eBlox is pleased to offer two new services:
- Flash conversion: If you have any Flash-based content on your home page, eBlox will rebuild it in HTML5, which works in all modern browsers and touch devices. HTML5 is the standard that most web sites and devices are moving toward, so conversion of your animations, including their interactive features and buttons, is a wise move for forward-thinking company store managers.
- HTML5 Animation: eBlox will create original HTML5 animations and presentations for your homepage or other site areas (we’ve got a couple of good examples in this project and this one). HTML5 banners work on almost all mobile and touch devices, such as iPads and other tablets, and have the same type of animation, interactivity and “gee-whiz” factor as Flash animations. If you’d like a quote on HTML5 animations or banners for your company store (or any site you manage), please contact us for a quote.
If you’ve been itching to put your storeBlox CS company store at a subdomain other than yourstore.storebloxcs.com, or if you’ve been holding off on a store until a really amazing domain comes along, rejoice! We now offer promoshops.com and promoorder.com as additional domains for store hosting. Customers with Standard storeBlox CS stores can host their sites at a subdomain of either of these – so if you’ve been waiting for coolstore.promoshops.com, now’s your chance to grab it!
As always, Pro-level stores include a top level domain – like coolstore.com – and a premium SSL certificate for your domain. For those customers that host at subdomains, though, you’ve now got a few new options for your store address.
