At Last! Smart Moving Averages…..

By -

There is no improvement to SlopeCharts that has been more requested than this one, and after literally years, I finally got around to making it happen: specifically, what we’ve done is make moving averagessmart” so that as you change granularities (daily to weekly to monthly or what have you) them the moving average will change itself to conform to your new granularity.

SlopeCharts & Mobile Get Married!

By -

It’s time for some really exciting news, and it’s been a very long time coming. Plainly stated, SlopeCharts no longer sucks on mobile. In fact, its terrific! Allow me to explain………..

The Slope of Hope is in its 19th year, and through most of those years, a huge portion of the site’s visitors were in mobile devices such as iPads, iPhones, and Android products. I will be the first to admit I’ve done a lousy job attending to mobile users. Slope was created as a desktop computer experience, and with the exception of the creation of Slope’s mobile apps a few years ago, I’ve been quite negligent in making Slope a good mobile experience.

Well, I’m glad to say this is no longer the case. I’ve made the time and cash investment into improving SlopeCharts on mobile so that even the likes of myself, who tends to be very desktop-bound, actually enjoys using the product on my iPad. Here are some specific improvements we’ve made to using SlopeCharts on mobile devices, and I welcome your emails if there are any other important improvements that you would like to see.
