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.
