Mobile Web Design

Technology is changing rapidly, and if youíve got a website itís essential youíre able to keep up with the times. A traditional design wonít work in a mobile capacity and the influx of smartphones, tablets and iPads means you need to ensure youíre fully compatible ó itís important to give customers what they want, because if they canít use your site they could easily look elsewhere.

What makes mobile design different?

To begin with, itís important to consider the fact that tablets and smartphones have much smaller screens than their traditional counterparts, so youíll need to alter your design accordingly. Something that looks great on a regular screen will easily look chaotic on a tablet or mobile, and if your text is too small you wonít be offering customers a good experience. Touch interaction offers a another point of consideration rather than having a mouse to play with, customers will be using their fingertips so you need to make sure that everything is compatible and totally user-friendly ó and then you need to think about Flash capability. Apple doesnít allow Flash functionality on any of its devices so youíll want to avoid this program altogether, because with iPads dominating the tablet market (by September 2011, almost 40million units had been sold worldwide) itís essential youíre able to meet customer expectations.
