“Is Ceros responsive? Will my content restack as I scale my browser? The short answer is no.” — don’t take our word for it, we’re just quoting Ceros.
out of the box
Ceros uses Adaptive Design that shrinks content to fit different screens and requires you to manually reconfigure your layouts and elements of your content to ensure a consistent experience across screens.
Adaptive Design is not very SEO friendly, and Google recommends and rewards sites that use “responsive design”.
Cleverstory’s Responsive Design approach makes sure your interactive content can be auto-optimised for any device — desktop, mobile, or tablet — ensuring the same immersive experience irrespective of the size of the screen.
Ceros’s page render speeds will leave your readers waiting. Content load time for Ceros pages is over 5s (ideal is <2.5s), and the time taken for the largest element (hero banners, etc) to load on a Ceros page is >4s.

Ceros requires extensive design knowledge, and it “takes time to wrap your head around the platform”, and “not a tool you can pick and run with” per some users.
This means relying on Ceros’ in-house design services—taking you twice as long to publish your interactive documents.
With Cleverstory, users have been able to create immersive experiences in no time, without dependence on other teams. The intuitive drag-and-drop editor enables even non-designers to publish in a matter of minutes.
