Symbaloo is starting the year of 2013 with a bang! Our Marketing and Development teams have been working hard to incorporate your feedback to create a new and improved Symbaloo. Our team set out to revamp Symbaloo to give you a faster, sleeker and easier experience. Thanks to your feedback, we will be introducing a fresh new look and tons of improvements on the new Symbaloo interface. This blog post will show you the changes that will take place within the new Symbaloo.
We are excited to hear your thoughts on the new features so fire up the comments!
Here is a preview of what the new interface will look like. This is not the final version so there will be slight changes made once we officially launch the new Symbaloo.
Symbaloo New Look
The new version of Symbaloo has a sleek new look. It’s a clean and simple interface that keeps your webmixes organized and you can easily navigate within Symbaloo. The tabs will still be available on top of your webmixes but there are other functions that has been added. In addition to that, there’s an option for you to expand the sidebar.
Besides the new look, we have changed the way you navigate between your tabs (webmixes). One of our favorite new and time-saving features is the sidebar, in which you can easily switch between tabs to quickly access all your webmixes. The tabs above your tiles are now the tabs that you have “opened” in the sidebar. When you click on a webmix, a new tab will open up just like your web browser opens up a new tab every time you go to a new site.
The sidebar is not just a place to organize all your webmixes but it will be an admin panel to control your Symbaloo settings. For example, you can add and edit your webmixes, and customize your tiles and background all through the sidebar. How cool is that?

Futhermore, you will find a search bar that will help you search for tiles and webmixes from the Gallery and from other Symbaloo users.

Besides these three major changes that you can see from the interface, we have made Symbaloo to be faster, more stable, more fun, simple and efficient. We added more than 10 new beautiful pictures in our background collection and more icons to choose from. This will all add to your personal experience and make Symbaloo YOURS.
