WTOK Mobile Features
1) WTOK Mobile provides the ability to view news story comments in the mobile versions of content.
2) WTOK Mobile also allows content sharing functionality, including Email to Friend and Send to Facebook
3) If a particular device is detected properly and supports it, links from Google, online newsletters, Facebook, Twitter, and other web programs will take viewers to the WTOK Mobile version of that particular story or link automatically.
WTOK Mobile Functionality
1) WTOK has completely revised the directory structure for WTOK Mobile. Instead of the site residing on the same address as the full web channel, and relying on accurate device detection, we have moved WTOK Mobile to a different physical location (www.wtok.com/mobi). This means that devices that are more advanced and that are recognized will still be redirected to WTOK Mobile, but still make WTOK Mobile very easily accessible for all other devices.
2) WTOK's previous mobile URL, www.newscenter11mobile.com, will still take you to WTOK Mobile without any need for detection, redirection, or cookies. However, as soon as possible, you should reset any bookmarks or favorites to the new WTOK Mobile address: www.wtok.com/mobi.
3) WTOK Mobile's new directory structure makes improved analytics and reporting possible.
WTOK Mobile Future Enhancements
1) Weather is such an integral feature of WTOK Mobile. We plan to enhance the weather feature on WTOK Mobile. We’ll communicate these developments as they become available.
2) Search is a very important feature of any new media product. WTOK plans to rework the way our web channel search works. These web channel search enhancements will also be translated into enhanced search capability for WTOK Mobile. We will keep you informed as this upgraded functionality becomes available.
3) We are planning a significant upgrade to WTOK Mobile video. We are working on providing mobile video availability in the three standard formats: WMV, 3GP, and QuickTime. This capability will allow the majority of mobile viewers the ability to watch video on WTOK Mobile.
4) Navigation will get an upgrade in the near future, with the addition of sub-navigation functionality.
5) Sports Scores/Schedules will receive some enhancements.
