I have been contemplating using Hotspots for a new site I plan to build. I'm an existing HS license holder, as I was using it on a previous website. I'm familiar with it, have already paid for it, and some of its functions lend itself to what I'd like to do. However, I just checked out the Hotspots demo site using an android phone (Samsung Galaxy S3) and also a HP Touchpad. On the former, once scrolled away from the collapsing sidebar menu, it seemed impossible to get it to reappear.
On the touchpad it was impossible to collapse the menu, as well as being impossible to move the map around. It doesn't appear to be truly responsive on either device and shows different problems on both.
My upcoming project is one that is being built for mobile devices just as much as it is PCs. Its taken me long enough to figure it out, but the web isn't about computer access anymore - it's about device access, and that trend won't go away. So my questions are:
- Is either or both of the problems mention have anything to do with the way the demo page was set up?
- Or are either or both symptoms simply part and parcel of Hotspots and that I should not expect good mobile device performance?
- Are these issues something that you have planned to address in a future update?
