I know that a discussion was already made on various places whether it is good to use hover on images on the web or in mobile apps. With the rise in mobile use where touch is prevalent do you think this practice makes sense?
I am mostly interested in your personal opinions - what are you currently doing with new projects. Introducing more hover or removing them?
This is one of the sites that uses hover heavily both in web version and in the mobile (responsive) version of the site:
I find this practice very useful especially in portfolio sites and sites that layout images in a kind of a wall where putting text under the image would break design and obviously more vertical space will be required.
