We have been working really hard in the past few months to make Towerbabel better. Everyone in the team has been really enthusiastic since the launch of our site and we are always full of ideas and suggestions in order to provide better user experience to our users.
We have more than a hundred items on our ever expanding enhancement lists (not including our development priorities). There have been numerous discussions among our developers, UX design and marketing team to prioritize our enhancements. We investigated the user behavior from our users and understand what they want by researching the statistics of all links in our site to make sure we are doing the right thing on every single page. We make sure our site takes the right balance in usability, performance, clarity, simplicity and productivity.
We are glad to announce that we have added a few nice features and small enhancements on our site. Below are the highlights:
1. Feature Tour
Just one click on the Take A Tour button on the homepage will bring you to a tour to understand the various functions where users could enjoy when they are reading or writing on Towerbabel.
2. Towerbabel Chat
We know you love to communicate. We have enabled Towerbabel Chat again with a new design so that you can chat with your friends while you are stuck when writing your book or want to share a quote immediately with others. Just click the plus sign will let your add your friends to the contact list. Don’t forget to register and login as our member in order to chat.
3. No of reads
We have added a little badge to each book and show the no of reads on the Library page and the Book page. If you would like to know the most popular books on the site, the Popular Books are always showing on the Library page as well as the Homepage.
Search has always been the most important function in our site. 95% of our users will search on the site. Our search will now look for keywords in the book title, book description, author name and member name from Towerbabel which makes it so much easier for our users to discover contents on the site. And if your keyword matches with the book title or the author name, we will bring you directly to the respective book page or author profile page which save you another click.
