What is Mobile Compatibility & Responsive Design?
Lately we have been noticing more and more people are asking us “What is Mobile Compatibility?” or “Can you explain to me what Responsive Design is?” Our answer is always “Yes!”
Simply put… Mobile Compatibility is how a person views a web site from a mobile device, such as a smart phone or tablet. While your web site might work just fine on your Desktop or Personal Computer, if you bring it up on a smaller screen, like on your smart phone or tablet it’s a different story. Your potential customer might encounter tiny fonts that they have to zoom in and out on to read, drop down menus that don’t work right, or a flash file no longer supported that won’t work, just to name a few.
Responsive Design is a phrase we are all hearing a lot about lately… But what is it? Well, it’s a design feature built into a website which allows the site to flex and respond to the device it’s being viewed on. The menus, images, text and call-to-action (or CTA) align or are directed to give a mobile user a better viewing experience.
If your website’s not mobile, at least half of the people looking for your product or service can’t view your website! You certainly do NOT want to loose your potential customer to your competition simply because they got frustrated and clicked the dreaded “back” button or couldn’t find you at all! Here at QC Total Tech, Mobile Compatibility is a standard service using Responsive Design in every site we build.
