Call it the
big buttons for meat fingers option.
This Christmas break, I've been living my digital life primarily through my iPad. With the mobile UI, I'm severely limited in what I can do in chat. With the desktop UI, I find it difficult to hit the star and reply buttons. Trying to do so, I accidentally flagged this post. Obviously, there is no reason for this post to be flagged.
What I'm asking for is a slight UI change to the desktop version of chat to enable tablet users to effectively reply, star, and flag posts in chat. The current buttons are too small to reliably hit.
