    So what? For some mobile users, it's easier to access the app on their respective device's app store that way. No damage done.

    Sure, but that's not really the point. You also don't "scroll" through a piece of paper or pinch a physical printout of a photo to get a closer look. Material design is about communicating to users what the interface affords and how you're navigating through it with movement.

    The definition of code is "a system of words, letters, figures, or other symbols substituted for other words, letters, etc., especially for the purposes of secrecy."

    Let's not waste time arguing over semantics. HTML and CSS are code, but knowing HTML and CSS doesn't mean you know how to program. That's not really the point of the writer's argument regardless.

    I'm somewhat concerned about the treatment of the player controls grouped with the navigation on the sidebar. All of the mockups display the app in full screen, but what about users who use iTunes in windowed mode? When you decrease the window height, what regions of the interface become scrollable and which don't?

    Resized iTunes Mock

    You definitely don't want your player controls to ever get hidden in a scroll view, but then there's potential for the navigation to get squeezed into a super narrow scrollable strip (see mockup above). It's also difficult to distinguish the end of the scrollable navigation from the Library/Store toggle thanks to invisible scroll bars -- a light grey dividing line might be an easy way to fix that.

    Also, you can only resize horizontally so far before the filter bar at the top can't reasonably scale down.

    Maybe these issues aren't major deal breakers, but it's certainly something to consider!
