3 Reasons Why the MSN Home Page Is Not Mobile Friendly #Mobilegeddon

04/11/2015

I was reading about the upcoming Google mobile update and I thought to myself this morning, I wonder how Microsoft is doing?

I was surfing around so I dropped by the MSN.com home page….and gasp!…It is not mobile friendly.

According to the Google test the following three main issues prevent the MSN home page from being mobile friendly –

1. Content is wider than screen

2. Links too close together

3. Mobile viewport is not set

Good news is that the #Microsoft home page is mobile friendly. Maybe it is just taking a minute for MSN.com to catch up!

Actual test link here.

Is Microsoft ill prepared? Comment below.

    This is from Jes–It’s probably like this because Microsoft has been spending all their time making silly apps for everything – MSN released multiple apps for all their different sections in the last few months including a bunch for Android and iOS.

    For some reason every company and their grandma would rather make apps than build websites for phones.
