Netvibes for mobile, iPhone and iPod touch get Multiple Personalized Pages

Last week, we introduced the Multiple Personalized Pages that allows you to create a Personalized Page for each aspect of your digital life. We just upgraded the mobile version of Netvibes so you can access these pages on the go too. As usual, the mobile website is available at http://m.netvibes.com/. It should work with any WAP 2.0 handset and Webkit-enabled devices, including the iPhone, iPod Touch, Blackberries and Android phones.

Depending on your phone capabilities, you will get either the basic or the advanced mobile website.

Switching to another page with the basic version

With the basic version, your Page list is displayed at the bottom of every page. Simply select your page and click “Go” to access the desired page.

Switching to another page with the advanced version

With the advanced version, taping on the page title will unfold the Page list. Simply tap on the page name to open it.

If you encounter any problem with the mobile version of Netvibes, send us a message at http://www.netvibes.com/static.php?show=feedback.

Important scheduled update: Netvibes introduces a new dimension: Multiple Personalized Pages

On May 27th, Netvibes will get a new dimension. Next Wednesday at 3AM UTC (Tuesday at 8PM in California), we are going to roll out a major update forcing us to a scheduled 4-hour downtime for the upgrade.

We have personal interests, we read feeds for work, we buy stuff online, we discuss with friends, we connect with colleagues, we plan vacations online, we support our local football team: our digital life is more complex than ever. To tackle this problem, we are about to a introduce a new feature that allows you to organize your content better: Multiple Personalized Pages.

Back in 2006, we introduced tabs, an industry first. Tabs were great for organizing our digital life. But today is different, we have to deal with multiple digital lives. With the new Multiple Personalized Pages, you will have as many private pages as you need, all managed with one account. Each digital life — home, work, family, and more — can now live on its own page, with its own theme, tabs and widgets. Let’s see how it’s gonna work.

The first noticeable change is the new “Pages” pulldown menu. It replaces the former “Go to my public pages” and gives you access to all your pages, both private and public. You can switch to any page in one click.

Use the Pages menu to switch to another page

At the bottom, there’s a special entry : “Manage my pages”. When you click on this link, it brings you to the Pages management section. From this section, you can:

  • create new pages
  • delete pages
  • reorder page
  • move and copy tabs from one page to another

This last functionality is especially handy for creating your public page. You can now build a tab in your private space then drag’n’drop it in your public page to publish it.

As mentioned above, all these features will be live on Wednesday but we wanted to announce the schedule maintenance and give you a sneak preview of the feature first.

Get ready for the Multiple Personalized Pages!
