I haven’t delved through this whole thread, but are you planning an app anytime soon?

Thats more of a long term goal, it would be great, but not something I am working on at the moment. 

I do try to make the site as mobile friendly as possible, so it should work on your phone.

No issues with it on the phone, but I would definitely use it more if there was an app.

BR:

On two devices (android cell, android tablet), when I try to update my deets or add new shoes, upon submission I'm logged off and asked to login again.

ETA:
Doesn't work on a Linux desktop either :-(

Sorry about that, I made some updates late last night and broke everything. It should be fixed now, thanks!

Great support, thanks! I'll give it a try mañana and update if necessary.

maybe add a rating to how much they stretched during break-in. Would be useful to know when trying on new shoes.

Update

​​​​Just wanted to bump this thread with an update. Here's what I've been working on.

  • Increased performance. I've spent a lot of time rewriting a lot of the site, you should notice drastically improved performance. The sales page for example used to take upwards of 5 seconds to load, now it should load in a second or so. 
  • Updated some graphics, and updated menu to work better on mobile. 
  • Progressive Web App. SizeSquirrel is now a progressive web app. What is this? It's basically an App on your phone. Heres how it works:
    • 1. Go to SizeSquirrel, click on prompt that says add to Home Screen
    • 2. Confirm prompt. 
    • 3. SizeSquirrel will now be on your homescreen and behave as an app.

Can you sort shoe reviews by foot type? That would be super helpful for potentially finding what might and might not work.

Also- one future area of improvement might be for fit to maybe have "forefoot, midfoot, rearfoot" and individual fit ratings/comments for each. I know that's likely not easy to build, but is useful.

Great idea, I can definitely add the foot type to the reviews and the ability to sort by them.

As far as the forefoot/midfoot/rearfoot ratings, I'm concerned that people may be put off by rating shoes in that much detail; however, I'll put more thought into this idea and how it could potentially work.

Thanks for the feedback!

I have added the ability to sort review by foot shape.

Yes, if it were to include a picture of the bottom of the shoe (sole) it (afaik) reflects the "last" of the shoe and reflects the foot shape it will fit too. This has been more useful to me that saying it fits a wide foot or narrow foot etc.

Can we see shoe buddies with the same size AND same foot shape? (I only have one shoe size buddy.)

I made a survey to try and get some data about foot/toebox shape, width, and shoe fit. Here's the link: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/V2T2SL8

I'm hoping to get enough data that I can at least graphically represent some trends in shoe preference for different categories of feet, and give some comparative measurements. Maybe it could get incorporated into a website too down the road.

Maybe I'm not doing it right, but I click foot shape and nothing happens or come up

Weird...The link works for me. Link is here: www15.plala.or.jp/miagolare…

Sure, I can add something like that

Is this about SizeSquirrel or the survey?

Size Squirrel- I want to click on my footshape and see a list of shoes rated in descending order from highest average rating for that foot shape to lowest.

Great suggestion. That feature doesn't exist yet, but I'll add it to the list of things to work on

Guideline #1: Don't be a jerk.
