      Hey M, thanks for checking out the site ~ we have plans to expand the marketing site in the future and decided on a scalable menu for mobile devices.

    I usually don't like web pages that hijack scrolling, but I think this one is an exception. Care was taken to make sure that it's not very disorienting. Most of the elements stay in place. Only the background, the text, and the screen on the phone move. I think that's a nice touch. +1

      agreed, i usually hate scrolljacking but i think they managed it really well here. almost enough to make me want to ... no, no, never.

      Yeah, same here. I've seen examples of horizontal scrolljacking that I don't like, but this is just the works nicely with the expected, vertical scrolling. I recently had to implement something similar with a "snap to full height section" effect: http://www.codeply.com/view/vWCpT3Ojo9

    That scroll is very disturbing. It scrolls the page to a new background color and loads the new text, then when I start reading it it scrolls in the background image and the new screenshot. Very interruptive.

    Maybe it's just me though ¯_(ツ)_/¯

      Same. Why keep on insisting it's a good idea to have stepped scrolling? Apple did it with Mac Pro's marketing page. Now Google.

      Nice graphic design though, agree with other comments about that.

    Performant and snappy, I like it. Google is really nailing the design part lately.

    Generally speaking, very pretty and easy to understand.

    The footer has horrendous contrast against the last background… illegal

    The gradient on the About and FAQ (visible on scroll) is a nice touch: nice

    And, cool logomark :)

    Did I mention I hate scroll-jacking?

    I hate scroll-jacking.

    There. I think it's clear now that I hate scroll-jacking.

    I think they have nailed the concept here. The backgrounds do a great job of illustrating the content can be read quickly (during a coffee break, while at lunch, walking the dog, or waiting for a plane).

    Similarly, the scrolling sort of emulates the scrolling behavior of the app.

    On the /about page, there is a 300px high <div> just for that fade effect as you scroll. But they have explicity set pointer-events: auto; which prevents you from scrolling if your cursor is over that area. Why?!

    If you can't implement your bullshit effects without breaking basic browser functionality, just don't.

    Beautiful site though to be fair.
