This is a great article on making the interface for a tablet website as finger friendly as possible.

In short your average finger is 45 to 57 pixels wide,  so make link targets large enough, and separated with enough margin to avoid over crowding or multiple selection.

make the text large enough to read ! (and I am not just saying that coz I now need reading glasses! honest)

I know what the article says is quite it’s obvious,  but sometimes the obvious has to be said.


As a side note the chrome browser on Android has a clever feature where if you select two items at once is shows both in a larger popup box so you can select the link of your choice,  neat solution.
