I read MetaFilter and AskMe often enough that I've got them on an iPhone home screen—the mobile site is great! But I'm also the sort of person who often uses Favorites as a bookmarking tool, and getting to my favorites is harder than it needs
to be on mobile. Right now it's:
- Load MeFi homepage
- Skip to menu
- Click on My Profile
- Click on the number after "Favorites" (carefully; this page doesn't use the mobile stylesheet, but that's another request for another day)
That brings up my favorited posts. If I want my favorited comments I need to
- Skip to menu again
- Click on User Favorites: Comments
If you were to add Favorites to the home page Site Menu (preferably on all the subsites) it would save me at least one click and a page load every single time I do this. And if you added both Favorited Posts and Favorited Comments to the home page site menu it could save me three
clicks and two
page loads. I use these pages all the time
. Why, just think
of all the clicks you could spare me, not to mention the extra page rendering you could spare the dear server!
Not everyone uses/likes Favorites, I know. You could put them near the bottom of the site menu (though I'd leave Search and Sign Out at the very bottom to keep them easy to find). But if you don't like My Little Pony Request, I'm afraid I'll have to...<sniff>...bookmark the Favorites page.
