jazZRo took the words off my keyboard. I was going to suggest looking at what Mashable do in a responsive view to see what their solution is. I have recently spotted a clever alternative that Apple (http://www.apple.com/) have done - note you should open this on a mobile device to view it properly - where they still keep all the top level items but you can ...

A dedicated footnote section is a good solution, but I wouldn't focus only on inline solutions. A popover is not necessarily that bad. The downside is that it covers a large portion of underlying text, but the upside is that the size is flexible: it can grow for longer definitions, making the need for scrolling to read a long annotation less likely. ...

It doesn't need to be a modal or a new window, you can use the footnote model - just allocate a special panel at the bottom of your screen for these annotations, and make sure to distinguish them visually from regular links. So when a user taps an annotated word, the panel would come up at the bottom and display the definition. On tap elsewhere on the screen ...

Have you seen the tags here on UX.SE on mobile? One of ways is present right here. On desktop these tags show a definition on hover. Along with number of questions under this tag. On mobile these tags need to be clickd and they show definition of the tag. And lists down all questions with these tags. With most recent one on top. No modal window. ...

I had a similar problem on a webapp I was working on. It involved lots of complex financial terms. I basically ended up building in a context sensitive help system to explain some of the words - the help can easily be toggled on and off so people familiar with the terms don't need to see it every time. Help Off Help On (The help text in this ...

Granted screen resolutions and the like have probably moved on since this question was asked but here's what I currently understand: Most desktop screens are full HD (1920px x 1080px) with 4k becoming more common (3840px × 2160px), laptops are usually 768 x 1366px (some have HD screens, and then there is the macbook pro). On top of that there are a wide ...

For very long lists, it's better to use a different UX for mobile Multi-select is a complex operation, so it's difficult to use the same interface for both web and mobile. You already recognize this because you've outlined two different layouts. Your mobile design is problematic because: It requires users to tap once to add an item, and then select ...

I'd suggest using something similar to the iOS "Select" functionality in Camera Roll. User taps a button to activate a "selection" state. User selects all the items List A items they want to move to List B. User taps a button to move items to List B. I'd also pair this with a search box that allows the user to easily filter out the names they want. That ...

Firstly, ask yourself how many countries the list would need to contain. If the app would only need to show a few (the countries in which markets you sell the app) it may not be worth the effort to apply a different layout on landscape. Secondly, how likely is it that expats use the app where they actually have to select their country of origin and not the ...

First of all - not ABCD... but autocomplete in search (consider Cyrillic, Greek or other alphabets). Drag-n-drop is a beautiful feauter, but consider dragging aprox. 50 elements. I will be extremely time consuming. Clicking on item on the left to assign it to group will be much easier. For mobile my proposition is to switch view between Available <-> ...

If we're talking about mobile, maybe override the default web scroll element and implement a scroll with a native-like behaviour and then show a tag list above it. To add something to list B from list A, click on a row in list A. To remove from list B, click on the tag on list B or click again on the row in list A. download bmml source – ...

I think you should design both, why not? I think a navigation that works without burger menu is better for visibility, but sometimes it's unavoidable on mobile platforms.
