What Not to Do: WTF Mobile Web

Your mom probably told you at some point in your formative years, “If you can’t say anything nice, don’t say anything at all.” But sometimes you gotta call a spade a spade. WTF Mobile Web, in a way, is the opposite of web design inspiration. This Tumblr points out major mobile web design fails in hopes that others might not make the same mistakes. Like gigantic dropdown menus inaccessible from phones. Or modal windows that are too big to actually let you accomplish what you wanted to do. Or mobile versions of websites that just send you to buy an app. The site invokes this great quote from Stephen Hay:

“There is no Mobile Web. There is only The Web, which we view in different ways. There is also no Desktop Web. Or Tablet Web. Thank you.”
