I noticed a cleaner design on the Adsense page.
Sadly you can't sort the payment order history to put the newer at the top.

"As part of our Google-wide initiative to deliver a simpler, more beautiful experience" Then why does it take more clicks than before to get the same thing?

Poor UAT.

I dunno, doesn't look that bad (or that different) to me.

I take it back. The damn thing doesn't work on iPhones in Classic view. And I bet it's intentional.

It looks awful in the iOS !
The zoom in puts the whole left side filling the screen !
In the mobile site, you can't see what's going on on the TODAY out of the total.

Yea, it's a mess. It works on my Android tablet; I haven't tried it on my iPad yet. When I tried to get the mobile version to work on my iPhone, it told me there was an AdSense API error. What a fail.

Yup. Looks pretty lousy on my iPhone. Please Google, lose the sidebar and oh yeah, where's the responsive design you've been pumping up?

They added yet another click to download your csv files. So awesome. The original interface was really data/csv export friendly. It seems very little thought was given to those of us that download our reports via csv and littler even still with this last version.

You used to be able to log in to AdSense and click one time and you would get a file that included your URL channels and Custom channels in one file. Now you have to...

Click a particular saved report from login screen. (No option to export right there - you have to load the report)

Click export report, save report

NEW Click the Saved reports tab on the left to display your other custom report.

Click export report, save report that doesn't combine URL/Custom channels in one csv anymore

This feels like how Apple would design it. Lots of fluff and BS - when it's actually a steaming pos.

That will explain why it is #*$!.

Regular page looks awful on my iPhone, at least they have improved the mobile site too... however where is the responsive design that Google tells is is the preferred solution? Perhaps that is another candidate for the "do as we say, not as we do" list.

What percentage of layout changes to any interactive/community site are welcomed positively?

10%? I'm going to guess that's on the high end.

Yea maybe, but failing to render on iPhones is more than just negative reaction to a new layout.

(And I wish whoever had pinned this post to the Featured Posts had used that as the tagline, too)
