click and drag ANYWHERE …I’m Hooked.
I found the website for interactive agency Hook a (surprising) joy to navigate.
Maybe it’s because I’ve been an iPhone user for 2 years and I’m used to everything being draggable, but it seems just as useful (if implemented correctly) on interfaces that aren’t multitouch, like my good old MacBook & mouse/WACOM tablet.
In the end this gets back to Fitt’s Law – Hook is effectively eliminating the distance you have to move to grab a scrollbar. Your scrollbar is everywhere.
So obvious, yet, I haven’t seen anyone else doing it.
