A quick look and analysis of the new http://news.google.com site.
 
This week I wanted to highlight news.google.com as site that does a great job on mobile, and while it’s not a truely responsive site, the experience works nicely on phones and tablets.  I really appreciate both the visual design and the interactions in the experience.

The good
* Looks great in both portrait and landscape mode on phone or tablet.
* It scores 79 on PageSpeed Insights, with the biggest hit coming from the blocking CSS file in the head at 32k, though it’s only about 7k when gzipped. (http://goo.gl/ozfu3O)
* There are a few minor things PSI suggests like minifying the HTML to save a whopping 615bytes and there is one image that should be optimized saving about 5K, but nothing huge here, especially given the total page size is about 803K.
* I love that search is right up at the top of the page, making it easy to find and use, but also that it provides suggestions as I type.
* The News logo at the top doesn’t directly take me home, but opens a nice smooth animation drawer with the navigation menu - from there I can pop up to the top quickly.
* Scrolling is nice and smooth, getting nearly 55-60 fps for pretty much everything.
* Good font sizes and contrasts, separation of publisher, time, snippet, etc.
* Love the ability to change sections in preferences and change some of the other settings that I might want to adjust.

Needs improvement
* If there are more categories in the navigation drawer, there’s no indication I can scroll down.
* Tap targets are a little small for share and show more, but since there are no other touch targets near by, and the chances of hitting something else, I’m not too worried. PageSpeed Insights recommends 32px height, these are between 14-18px
* Separate desktop vs mobile site - boo! I like the phone experience the best, the tablet is good, but isn’t quite as slick.
* Both avatar and three dots shows the app menu, nice that it makes for a bigger tap target, but it’s also not clear what it might do when I click on it.

This week I wanted to highlight news.google.com as site that does a great job on mobile, and while it’s not a truely responsive site - it serves different content for phone, tablet and desktop - the experience on mobile and table it really nice.  I really appreciate both the visual design and the interactions in the experience.

Code snippets on small screens, vote on the original post and let me know what you think!
 
Code samples on small screens are can be hard to read, so which do you prefer? With automatic line breaks and no scrolling, or fixed line breaks and some scrolling?

Ew, can't believe they don't properly wrap comments. I see multiple issues filed on the repo.. it would be a nice contribution.

I agree CSS is nice, but functionality is better than ease of use :)

How about if it added an ellipsis and indented the bit that wraps onto the next line? Like http://i57.tinypic.com/1zbvrdu.png

Wow, spectacular dining experience. Did the tasting menu and loved every course. I'm not a big lobster fan but the warm lobster salad left me wanting more. The duck breast over the corn salad was amazing - the corn tasted so fresh and crunchy, the duck was tender and didn't taste fatty at all. The portion sizes were perfect, I left happily full!

I started the evening with a glass of wine, which tasted a bit off. I asked the bartender if he would pour himself some to see if it was just me, and rather then do that, he opened a new bottle and offered me a taste of that - the previous bottle was off, and he poured me a new glass. I had the filet, which was cooked perfectly, and nicely seasoned. It was a good size, not too much but enough to be filling for anyone who's hungry. I'd definitely go back!

Solidly good service with a pleasant attitude, the food was tasty and well cooked. The carpaccio should have been about half as thick as it was, but hell, I got more and it was tasty so I won't complain.

Henry provides a great cut and really knows what he's doing. He charges a reasonable amount for a great hair cut and does an awesome job with color.
