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:



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



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


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


"User" view


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:


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
