Coolspotters Beta No More

To borrow a quote from the 1996 film Swingers, “Our little baby’s all grows up!” Having launched 22 months ago, and growing fast ever since, Coolspotters serves millions of pages each month, with visitors from every country in the world (yes, even Tajikistan).

Today we’re removing the “Beta” tag from Coolspotters. Removing “Beta” from the site simply means that you can expect the highest levels of reliability, support, and ongoing innovation. All of the credit for our growth goes to you – the most passionate, knowledgeable, and helpful collection of fashionistas and trendsetters anywhere.

Coolspotters has grown to become the definitive resource for discovering and buying the very latest celebrity fashion, style, and products. With tens of thousands of product & brand profiles, and the most complete directory of celebrities available anywhere, we are proud to offer Coolspotters as the resource it has become for people all around the globe.

Along with the removal of the Beta tag, we want to announce a couple new features:

First off, we recently launched a new Wallpaper section on Coolspotters. This section takes all of the incredible images you’ve uploaded and, through a little magic, enhances them perfectly for your iPhone and iPod touch. You can browse through these beautiful photos, rate them, leave comments, and even download them with our new CoolPapers app. You’ll never have more choices or more fun customizing the home screen of your iPhone or iPod touch.

Secondly, we’ve heard you loud and clear…you want Hairstyles! So, today, we’re announcing the addition of Hairstyles (styles, colors, lengths, cuts) to Coolspotters. Starting now, you can spot your favorite styles from movies and TV, or on your favorite celebs and public figures. You can get to this new section from our main navigation. Enjoy.

On behalf of everyone at Fanzter, I’d like to once again thank YOU, our community. Every day, you make Coolspotters what it is. It’s your site, so please continue to let us know how we can make it better.

Happy Spotting!

New Enhancements

We’ve been busy planning new features for Coolspotters.com, but we’ve also been reacting to your feedback and improving upon what you already see. Today we have rolled out a few updates.

New Navigation & Menus


You’ll first notice the navigation on the top of the page has changed. Let’s look at what’s new…

User Menu

Access your own profile page, messages and settings from the “My Profile” menu at the top of the page.

Activity Feed

Keep up to date on all your favorite profiles, spots and users from the “Feed” menu. This menu displays the number of new feed items in the last 24 hours.

Category Menus

Jump right to a listing of any profile category.

Create Spots and new Profiles from any page

Add new profiles or spots from this menu, available on every page.

Browsing a Profile’s Spots

Jump directly to a spot page by clicking on the photo, or view that item’s profile page by clicking the “View Profile” button. Hovering over the “i” button will show the spot’s description (if it has one).

We hope you find moving around Coolspotters.com a bit easier, and continued feedback is always welcome.
