SNAP Search by Tek Data

2018

SNAP Search is an online tool built for schools and libraries to search accross their many media providers in one interface. Our task was to build a mobile-friendly interface for the existing tool, as quick and as inexpensive as possible.

To make this application mobile-friendly, we simply added CSS to change the layout when viewing on mobile and some JS to make minor tweaks to the functionality. By employing some creative thinking, we were able to achieve the goal while making very few changes to the existing structure.

We implemented the following mobile-only features:

  • Condensed search results that could be opened up by a tap.
  • Menu bar with popout menus.
  • Mobile-friendly icons.
  • Scroll to top button.
  • Add to homescreen instructions on login page.
