Mobile Websites / Mobile Apps
With consumers buying more and more smart phones and tablets, the need for mobile development is greater than ever.
Is your company taking advantage of this ever growing consumer market?
Smartphones and tablets now demand all websites to be portable. It’s not enough to say you have a website, unless you have it accessible on all of technology’s new innovational gadgets, thus the need for mobile development. As smartphones and tablets are more widely used- especially for browsing the web- your website needs to be compatible with the smaller screens of these electronics. Our team of engineers creates gadget-specific versions of your website- with the same image and content- that deliver a consumer-friendly interface that’s more attractive. In addition, we can create an application for your website or company if you want an even more direct way to create mobile development. You don’t want to lose the business of phone and tablet-users- we’re here to make sure you don’t.

Reasons for Having a Mobile Web Site
Our web designers test the web sites and mobile development projects we build on the iPhone (iOS) and Android mobile platforms for basic compatibility using the browsers on each respective smartphone. That being said, users viewing a traditional web site (non-mobile specific or non Responsive sites) on a smartphone may find the experience a little frustrating. When considering mobile development, here are some important things to keep in mind when viewing web sites on a mobile device:
The smaller screen sizes on smart phones and some tablets make text difficult to read. When hiring a mobile development company, make sure they design the display of your mobile site to display the text slightly larger on these mobile devices.
No Adobe Flash
If your site uses Adobe Flash, it will not display on Apple iPhones, iPods or iPads. These days, the latest trend is for sites to use the more accepted HTML 5 platform, which does not require additional browser plugins.
Many traditional websites have Drop Down navigation which display when your mouse cursor is over or “hovers” over a link. Mobile devices such as smartphone and tablets do not recognize “hover events”.
An over abundance of images, while it may look great on the desktop version of your site, will slow down the overall download speed of your mobile site. Consider using fewer images or at the very least make sure the images are optimized for the web.
While it may make sense to convert all of your pages over to a mobile friendly version in certain situations, most mobile users will not browse your site’s entire content. On-the-go mobile users are typically looking for quick and easy access for core information such as your street address, map with directions, phone number, hours and perhaps a summary of your services.
