Hovering Over Your Phone

The Zombie: Hover on a touch screen

Always a Zombie? Yes

Severity: High, if hover imparts information or is required for progress through the site.

Why is it a Zombie: You can’t hover on a touch screen so any user who’s on a phone, tablet. etc cannot access that part of your website.

Cure the Zombie by: Add an alternative way to initiate what happens on hover with a link, button etc.
