New Netvibes on Android and iPhone now live!

As promised when we released Netvibes on iPad two weeks ago, we are super excited to offer this version for the first time on Android and update our existing iPhone version.
All 3 versions now share the same core user experience and nicely adapt to your favorite device.

Immediate benefit is a continuous experience across any devices. Start reading and monitoring from your PC or Mac, continue on your iPhone or Android while commuting and finish your day on your iPad, Netvibes will provide a continuous experience throughout your day, no matter what device you use, read/unread articles are automatically and real time synchronized.

Enjoy it now. Everything is live and ready for you at:

As a reminder, the iPad one is available at:

Next enhancements in a couple of weeks should include the split view for the iPad and we are also working on some missing features like “mark as unread” or “display only unread items”

Let us know if you’d like to see some other features in those mobile versions.

    Looks promising. I like the layout!

    On my HTC Incredible (Android) the “mark all as read” doesn’t appear to be working. Also, can you put the “mark all as read” also at the top of the feed page so I don’t have to scroll all the way to the bottom if I only have one or two unread posts?

    Thanks — looking forward to using this.

    Looks and works great on my iPhone!
    Thank you!

    But two improvements for the iPhone Version:
    – As already mentioned by Justin, please place a “mark as read” button also at the top of a page and maybe reduce it to an icon (checkmark button or something like that).
    – The iPhone version needs a favicon in iPhone style. I bookmarked the page and added it to my homescreen, but the flat netvibes icon doesn’t match the other shiny icons. Since theres no netvibes app i really want to have netvibes on my homescreen for quick access.

    Can we have an option for the previous widget view? I don’t like the reader view. Getting an overview of my dashboard just be scrolling down the page rather than going backwards and forwards through tabs suited me better.

    Also, the new layout does not work with Opera Mini. Cannot move off the landing page.

    hello guys,

    i loved using iphone.netvibes.com with my se xperia x1 with opera mobile 10.

    But the current version makes using netvibes a mess. after viewing a tab i need to reload to reset the view.

    please either modify the m.netvibes.com portal to be more finger friendly or make the iphone/bandroid version compatible with opera.

    Thanks a lot.
    Best regards Kay

    Just wanted to let you know that the iPhone site works great on WebOS phones such as the Palm Pre. Great work making it work with WebKit. I have just started using it and everything looks like it works. I have tested navigation and all of the buttons. They all work. Thank you for keeping us in mind as well by not developing a custom iPhone app. You may want to start testing with WebOS just for completeness since you now have the support.

    THANKS!

    Hi,

    a “&” in a tab name creates the wrong character (the typical “&amp” issue) on the iPhone version, when used on the Palm Pre.

  • Reply Mia June 22, 2010 at 2:36 am

    Sorry, I think the new netvibes beta is very bad IU on the iphone. The last mobile version on the iphone wasn’t great, but this is WAY worse. Why is there so much wasted real estate when scrolling through posts? There is too much white space around each post which makes scrolling down a real chore. There is no “mark all as read” at the TOP, requiring to scroll (chore) to way bottom to find ‘mark as read’. Only alternative to scrolling is to open each post, then to back to previous screen, open next post, repeat. Wow, really really bad.

    Use of gray totally overused. The unread messages are nearly the same shade of gray as read messages! Feeds take soooooo long to load.

    Plus, when I tried submitting these comments using my iphone, the comments box acts very weird, netvibes returned an error and I lost my comments. So I’m submitting these using my laptop now.

    Both links work perfectly well on my Nokia N900 – as well as the full page is rendered.

    How about something like a neutral URL

    http://touch.netvibes.com

    in order to support and promote Netvibes also for other touchscreen mobiles?

    Great write up. The iPhone is truly revolutionary and I don’t like being without it. This time last year I had jumped in a pool with my iPhone and it was dead. I had to wait 10 days before I was able to buya new one. The phone I had was a cheap go phone. I really love all the apps that can be downloaded to the iPhone. The best part about the iPhone to me is the ability to check emails on the go. Thanks for the information.

    I hate this new UI – the previous one was so much faster when wanting to do a quick screening of all my feeds.

    How can you fail so miserably making this crappy new version? Give me an opportunity to choose which version of UI I want or I will need to change from Netvibes to something more useable

    The mobile version of Netvibes is a step backwards:

    why?

    The number of unread messages is not shown in Netvibes’ mobile alpha version (using the e-mail widget). This means I cannot quickly see whether i have unread messages.

    In the “old” mobile and non-mobile sites of Netvibes the number of unread messages was shown from the widget.

    Does anyone have a solution or can anyone at Netvibes suggest me how to solve this. Is the “old” mobile version of netvibes still available (untill the problems with the mobile alpha version are solved)? Please Netvibes keep this old version accessible!

    Yes, we are working on several updates to enrich your experience. Stay tuned

  • Reply Joe July 17, 2010 at 6:33 pm

    Netvibes mobile needs a favorites button, or a read later button.

    I keep switching between google reader and netvibes. Google wins on functionality and netvibes on presentation and usability.
