Mobile versions of websites – what a train crash they often are. As I write this, at 10.30pm on Monday night, neither the BBC nor Guardian mobile websites are mentioning that Gordon Brown has promised to resign … a story that their web news pages are unsurprising leading with – and have been doing so for several hours.
I’m sure it’s hard to implement a mobile version of a website – with ITV’s mobile site particularly demonstrating why they’re often rubbish.
But I expected rather more of the BBC and the Guardian. In fact, if you’ve been using their mobile sites for the last few days, you’d have been under the impression that there has been little news about the election to report…
Here’s the Guardian’s mobile version tonight – no mention of Gordon Brown quitting.
