Oops! Even the big guys don’t get it right

As mobile’s exploding, everyone wants to deploy their web forms to tablets and smart phones. But even large companies like eBay can make crazy mistakes. I tried their mobile registration form and it won’t submit. It’s a simple mistake: the zip code field is mistakenly programmed to be a telephone. I know they have specialized apps for phones but hey, I might end up here in my mobile browser. The form illustrates how hard it can be to get it right.

Obviously, if you use frevvo, you won’t have to worry about these details but didn’t someone at eBay at least try the form once 🙂
