  1. Use escape button to close article and fall back to article tile and not to top of page

    1. For people who are right handed its easier to have escape button as an option to close a article page and go back to article tiles. So can we have both escape / back button to go back to previous page that contains the tiles

    2. When we close the article using "Back / escape (assuming)" It loads the tiles page and it starts from the top again. User need to scroll down again to the tiles to continue skimming from where he left off. I think back button or escape should be done should that it take the…

  2. More images on Travel interest (and others)

    Would be more interesting and engaging if there were more images

  4. Thumbs up/down

    I think it might be useful to add the thumbs up/down icons on articles in each section. That way, it's possible to see what you've liked or disliked as you skim. It's especially useful because you could see what you've read as well.

  5. General layout

    I like the general layout of the contents page, but it feels a little too neutral. It might look better on an iPad than it does my computer, though. It gets worse when you actually click on an article to read it. I feel like I'm reading what someone wrote in Microsoft Word. I think it could use some borders or a little color...just something to make the page pop.

  7. Eliminate article summaries?

    Since many of the article summaries are chopping off mid-sentence due to design issues, perhaps it would be better just to focus on headlines and images, and delete article summaries entirely?

  8. Upper Left Corner

    The upper left corner design is not appealing. It contains a truncated word "ug." Plus, the thumb up and thumb down are not for like or dislike as expected, they prompted me to different articles within the celeb category.

  9. Reading an article on Deskop is not a good experience

    When clicking on an article on desktop, you end up on a page with a big picture in the middle, wasted space on the side, and the text at the bottom. Desktop have better, bigger screen so a better UX should be possible

  10. tiles are a bit small

    There are too many tiles, of various sizes, which makes the page flow hard to follow. I would bigger tiles, or a better arrangement.

  11. Tile design

    I like my colorful account tile and would like to give the other tiles colors or backgrounds too - maybe an image that relates to the topic if it's simple enough.

  13. Different approach to dual axis scrolling + different tiles view on Top Stories

    Hi,

    how about a different approach to dual axis scrolling? Following idea for Mobile:

    1. vertical scrolling:
    -> Zed home is infinite stream of articles (mix of all your interests, e.g. the top stories or latest).
    -> only a small tile with article category (interest), article title to allow quick scanning.

    2. Tap on the article tile will not open the article, but instead make the tile bigger unveiling an article summary, image if available and also actions like "read later", "share" etc..

    3. When an article tile is in focus (e.g. in the middle of the screen) during vertical…

  14. arrows on this page can be confusing

    I thought there were sub-interests because of the arrows. I don't see how useful they are and should just be eliminated on pages like this.

  15. Upper Left Corner

    On the upper left corner, there is a truncated word which takes away from the overall layout.

  16. Option to click "on" or "off" for pics

    could there be an "on" or "off" function for pics? Some add nothing to the content and some are just of sensationalistic value (like a particular one yesterday that I saw multiple times)

  17. sunscreen - night display adjustment

    could there be a color scheme adjustment so that, e.g. we can read in the sun with a more muted color scheme (like a gray sunscreen or filter/overlay), and at night, with black/white reversed, like ... the way your car navigator colors change at night...?

  18. Thumbs up/thumps down should stay highlighted

    When I click a thump up/thump down on an article page, I would like keep that thumps up/thumps down highlighted as to what I chose in case I come across it again.

  19. Many concerns

    -very confusing and jarring layout with no clear flow in terms of user navigation. -major concern that taking this direction will likely kill traffic, content consumption and monetization opportunities across the board for Yahoo!'s major properties.
    -terrible ad experience in current state, seems as though there is little room for custom brand integration.
    -needs bigger and bolder editorial images incorporated
    -How would I arrive at my Fantasy Football team or a MMT page in Y! Autos?

  20. Layout

    Hi,
    Here are a few observations:
    - Are you planning to add a "X" in the right edge of each article you dont find relevant? Hopefully that would then mean I would start to get less of those types of articles.

    - To me there is way too much text, its overwhelming. There should be alot more images so that you dont have to read 10 article titles on a page to find out which one you want to click on. The only tiles my eyes are drawn to are the ones with images. Also, for certain categories like "food…
