State redesigns website to improve function, look

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- Tennessee has redesigned its state website to improve its function and look.

One key change was making the website more accessible for mobile devices.

Officials say years of usage data showed that mobile users were usually in search of the same content as desktop users.

With the website's new responsive design, they say mobile users are presented the same desktop content, but it's adapted for smaller screens such as iPhones, iPads and Android devices.

Another enhancement is the addition of a so-called "Livewire" for an up-to-date view of online top searches, public meetings and press releases.
