I have taken a number of screen captures of different interactions one would have with SE, specifically on the Code Review site. Here are some of my early observations.

Please note: Throughout this trial the iPad has been held horizontally, mostly. The layout is not quite as good with vertical orientation.

A question:

An answer to said question, with comments:

Answer

Profile

Note: I had the quick navigation menu open, it's on the left. Can be reduced easily.

Profile

Feed

This shows hot network questions in a horizontally scrollable interface. It also seems to display recent questions on your "hottest" networks.

Feed

Search filters

When you click on the "Active" word in the left dashboard, it gives you a number of filtering options:

Search filters

"Tags" view

tags

"User" view

UserProfile


Flipping to vertical view!

Test Q&A view, showing editing and preview panes

The code block seems to not be up to par yet, which is a big deal for CR.

Code Block


Flipping back to horizontal view!

Large code blocks

Scrollbars for long sections of code seem to be gone on iOS app:

good_things

And that seems to be good on both questions and answers.

    \$\begingroup\$ I suspect your non-working code block was because it's located just below a list. You need to put an empty html comment to make the code block not part of the list, or add a bunch of more spaces (6 IIRC) to make the code block part of the last list bullet - in which case the code block gets indented in line with the bullet/numbered list items. This behavior is normal stuff, does it not work in IE? ;) \$\endgroup\$ – Mathieu Guindon Oct 2 '14 at 2:53
