Sports Illustrated Revamps Mobile Site

We love Sports Illustrated. Each week when the magazine arrives is like a mini holiday. We grab the magazine, take it to the bathroom and read it while uh, well, no need for details.

Since we love SI so much, we do read it quite a lot on the phone. But SI’s mobile site was pretty awful. Until now that is, because the site just got a revamp.

The new mobile SI is much nicer to browse, with a cleaner look and easier navigation. At the top of the site is a big, slidable picture, which links to lead stories. The mobile version also includes SI’s Gameflash technology, that offers detailed, real time updates for games in progress.

Matt Bean, SI.com’s managing editor, said “We  think you like what you see,” and we couldn’t agree more.
