So why may our solution not work?
Our redesign of Medium’s Claps…and why they may not have chosen to do it this way.

I’d like to offer another reason, with the slider it becomes way way easier to give the “full” 50 claps, while on desktop it takes more “effort” to give the full 50 claps. that way you are differently valuing claps on mobile and desktop.
