Not sure. Is it "Avenue Ess" or "Avenue South"? Which is the noun? Does it really need to be abbreviated at all? Maybe it's time to get rid of them altogether. Devices have much higher resolutions these days, and there's plenty of space on the screen for full road names... [/rant]
I don't think so. Resolutions are getting higher but not all screens are getting bigger. I think you'll have a tough time justifying spelling out "Boulevard" or "Throughway" in any case.
I absolutely agree. I still have an iPhone and my screen is the same as it was 3 years ago. With a huge market share of smartphones I believe we still need to keep the text condensed as much as possible in the directional text areas.
