Talk:Mobile Design Pattern: Live Scrolling
This article discusses a relatively recent arrival in the domain of web design (and indeed mobile web design), known as live scrolling. This design pattern is typically used on content-driven websites, where users scroll through data downloaded via the web. The technique is clearly explained, with appropriate example images used, that many readers are likely to be able to relate to (GMail and Facebook). The article includes a good discussion of the advantages and disadvantages of this design pattern.
A useful set of design tips are also provided, suggesting that data be downloaded in small increments, that users be made aware of downloading, and that the system should attempt downloads more than once before presenting an error message.
The article is well-written and professionally presented.
