DesertUSA Goes Mobile …

Use your mobile device to access desert news and articles! |

You no longer have to be at a desk to access the latest desert news from  We’ve just added a “Mobile” version of our website for desert enthusiasts.

If you have a mobile device, simply log onto and the site will automatically detect the mobile device you are using and switch to a compatible version.  You can always “preview” this mode by clicking on the text link in the bottom left corner of the home page labelled “Switch to our mobile site.”  You can switch back to “Desktop Mode” from “Mobile mode” the same way.

The “Mobile” version of DesertUSA is not as pretty as the “Desktop” version because it strips out the look and feel of the website and gives you the content in a watered down template. The Mobile version is designed for faster loading and easy browsing on mobile devices.

Check it out and let us know if you have any suggestions, trouble accessing the site or feedback.

Tip: You can always get back to the “Desktop Version” or regular website by using the link at the bottom of screen.
