CoveritLive

Various authors, Website, Nov 28, 2007

CoverItLive is a good idea indifferently executed. The idea is that the user is presented with a blog interface that allows for love blogging, live commenting, polling, and more, while an event takes place. The site not so subtly hints that people should live-blog football games (not a bad idea). But your visitors have to go in through the main site - the live blog itself is a popup with no visible URL. The completed blogs are embedded in your website with an iframe. There's a lot of text overflow, buttons that have disappeared behind the edge of screens, and the like - typical of an application that was developed quickly on Internet Explorer and not tested on different browsers with different screen and font sizes.
