Perhaps it’s strange to pick a day when most events are cancelled to make this announcement, but … well, we do things when we get around to them so here it goes: The PDD Calendar now has a mobile version. We actually launched it on Sunday, so maybe you’ve already noticed.
If you view the calendar on a phone, you should automatically see the mobile version. At the bottom of the page there is an option to “View Full Screen Version” if you prefer looking at the calendar the old desktop way, but why would you?
If you are on a desktop computer or tablet you should see the PDD Calendar in its old standard format, because it’s better that way if you’ve got a full screen to play with.
The mobile version of the calendar has the same search options as the desktop version. Just click “search” in the upper right corner and options for other days of the week pop up, as well as the “Advanced Search” so you can find out what is happening weeks, months and years into the future. You can also search by place (i.e. Tycoons, Duluth Playhouse) or keywords (i.e. sex, guns) or by certain entities, etc. (which we eloquently refer to as “things,” i.e. Duluth Superior Symphony Orchestra or the Duluth Experience or categories (music, family fun).
Use the little arrows on the right edge of each event to read the full descriptions. All the videos and images work the same, as do links to venue addresses and maps and yadda yadda yadda.
So check it out and let us know if any of it sucks or is broken. We built it, so we can fix it. It just might take us a while because fixing the internet always comes after playing in the snow for us.
By the way, there is also a mobile version of the PDD Blog (the thing you are reading right now). We didn’t build that; it’s a Word Press plugin. So everything that’s wrong with it is not our fault and you should never complain about it.
Do let us know what you think of the mobile calendar, though.
