Pop-overs on Mobile Websites

7thJune 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.
