Mobile Website Design Company In Buffalo, NY
If you want your website to fit on a cell phone, it should be tailored to fit. A responsive web design is the best idea for most web presences. However, in some situations, when the user goals and content are significantly different on a mobile device, the best solution is to produce a separate mobile presence.
If you build one site for full-size users and another for mobile devices, the site can automatically detect how your visitor is seeing the site, and then send them to the correct version. Mobile web design is about building another version of your site by adapting the design, content, and features.
Design for Cell Phones and iPod Touch etc.
A mobile device has about one tenth as many pixels as a regular screen. And since form follows function, the mobile site needs it's own design. The design should be simpler. Here are a few ways that we adapt your current website to mobile:
- Use a one-column layout.
- Reduce the number of graphics, save layout space and load time.
- Use a simple menu navigation.
Some features are a natural fit for smart phones. The following is a list of features that lend themselves well to mobile web sites.
- Google maps
- Twitter feeds
- Photo galleries
- Video (keep in mind, video may load slowly on smart phones)
