Pop-overs on Mobile Websites

7th June 2011 | Tags:

This morn­ing a Tweet piqued my inter­est; “FT​.com launches sub­scrip­tion web app aimed at Smart­phone & tablet users bypass­ing app store tar­iffs”. An inter­est­ing con­cept, so I fol­lowed the link which took me straight to the FT​.com web­site. Now, if there’s any­thing that’s going to drive me away from a web­site it’s a pop-​over — except, that is, a pop-​over when I just hap­pen to be try­ing to access your site using my mobile. This is what I got:

The irony that the arti­cle was about a ser­vice aimed at Smart­phone users was’t lost on me.

    do you know any good responsive popover? I’m trying to get an app up which I want to be responsive, and I’m thinking using a popover for some crucial part would be good because it would diminish the friction for the mobile and desktop user to get the info they’ll want, but I can’t find any good responsive solution for pop overs!

    I can’t say that I do, unfortunately. I’d be very interested to know if you find anything.
