We're back, and better than ever.

Feedback would still be appreciated as I'm still working on this site.


After weeks of doing nothing productive at all, staring at my screen or my tv while playing Halo or Minecraft, I decided to give my old site, Armorwatcher.tk, a complete overhaul. This time I wanted to make it as mobile friendly as possible, so I started all the way from scratch again.

I spent three days writing the new version of my website, learning bits and pieces of javascript as I went along. I chose javascript so you don't have to load or reload a page every single time, which cuts down on costs if you're roaming and can't get a wifi connection. After the first day the site was basically done, and over the next two days most of the javascript was added. Now I'm just adding more features when I feel like it, such as the desktop mode for those who want to use the new site on a computer too.

Anyhow, without further ado, I present to you:

Armor Watcher 2.0! Currently v.0.6.1
As of version 0.5.4, pc's are automatically redirected to the desktop version, if you want to view the mobile version you'll have to either spoof the User-Agent string or just, you know, view it on a mobile.

Mobile Apps
If you want to cut back on costs even more, here's an app that basically has the site embedded in it, so that it'll only use the internet to retrieve the actual images:

Please note that Internet Explorer likes to screw things up even on a Windows Phone.
The App version hasn't been tested yet, it might turn out better than this, but not likely.

I know for a fact that a Halo 4 Armor viewer, Halo Reach Armor viewer, Halo 4 Emblem Viewer and Halo Reach Emblem Viewer all have never been done before by anyone else on any other site.
