- As there are more home panels (and can be continuously expanded to include more!), we need a scalable way of addressing a potential larger number of home panels  

- This relates to both Android and iOS implementation of the home panel concept  

**User Stories:**

- As a user, I want to be able to get to all of the content contained in various home panels in a quick, easy and intuitive way.  

  - AC: I   

**Additional Info:**

- DRIs: Darrin (UX)

This sounds like a dupe of bug 978306.

Bug 1073053 was supposed to be a small attempt to try to make this better, but this is definitely a challenging UX situation.

Can I re-suggest the expanding Floating Action Button?

For reference:
this is a meta bug, which we don't track. If there are concrete work items, hang them off here and we can triage those

Came up in Funnel so I'm tossing an NI to Darrin to sync up with me on this for all our Mobile products.

Note: Bug 1073053 starts to tackle this for the Android side, but I think we can do more. So again, we should sync up.

Given all the recent work we've been doing around Home panels, I think this bug sounds very meta. 

I'm going to clear our NI for now since this is being tackled in many other different ways/bugs. But we can leave the bug open to address feedback for all this new stuff we're doing with Home panels on both platforms.

I'm just going to close this out, since it's not actionable.

Yes, we want a more scalable home panel experience. But as Anthony says, this is happening through a variety of other initiatives.
