Skype website and navigation get thumbs-up from Carson Systems
The folks at Carson Systems are busy [building a new web application and blogging the whole process](http://www.barenakedapp.com/the-design/great-ideas-from-other-apps). They took a look at what’s out there and gave the Skype website thumbs-up in two of the five categories. Gee. Thanks, guys.
> **Cute Navigation.** The prize for cute navigation goes to Skype for their very useable site map that appears at the bottom of each page. It’s a simple device and an old one at that but doesn’t it work well? With so much documentation on one site the map really is a Godsend.
**Best Overall Communication.** This prize goes to Skype. Now I know that some people will argue that Flickr is an overall top performer too – and I agree – but someone has to win! Skype just has it all for me, The whole site is very short, sharp and to the point which makes me feel like there really is nothing to this ‘free telephony thing’ (right or wrong). While the winning feature has got to be the animation on the home page. Any animation that still makes sense in Korean really does deserve to win.
Now if we only knew what their new web app is about it wasn’t apparent from the blog. That aside, we keep revisiting various parts of our own website all the time, since you can always improve. The current site look’n'feel dates from February and we’re already busy with the next version.
