I have a problem that is very frustrating!!

 

Whenever we look to preview our tests on mobile devices we continue to run into the same problems with the Optimizley footer bar.

On iPhones there appears to be no way of getting rid of the preview pane? It is a fixed width and we cannot scroll it across to collapse it or close it. Which means that testing anytihng on an iPhone is near impossible unless you put the test live. 

 

I have also noticed on my Nexus 5 that it is really difficult to collapse the bar even when you can scroll across to it. I tend to have to press the button about 20 times before it collapses. 

 

Given that more and more testing will be done on mobile in the coming months/years it would be good to get this fixed as soon as possible. It just needs to be responsive.

You can try using "force parameters" instead to view a variation without the preview pane: https://help.optimizely.com/hc/en-us/articles/200107480. Another option is to do the mobile preview via web, going through our proxy.
