Congress.gov Mobile vs. Full Screen – Pic of the Week

Leah K. Ibraheem recently did a guest post, Do People Look at Legislation on Their Phones? Yes, They Do!  In it she discussed how mobile traffic to Congress.gov has more than doubled as a percentage of all traffic to the website over the last four years.

When Congress.gov first launched almost six years ago, the site was built using responsive design in order to be mobile friendly.

I thought I would share a few images to illustrate how the view of the site looks on a mobile versus full screen device.  These three screen shots compare versions of the homepage, legislation, and a browse page with the mobile view on the left and the full screen on the right.

Working on Capitol Hill, one of the ways I use Congress.gov on my phone is when I see a Member of Congress, I will look them up to learn more about them.  How do you use Congress.gov on your phone?
