Mobile Web Site Design
The stats go on and on, increasingly more dramatic every day. The fact is that times have changed. As cell phones and tablets become better and better, it is becoming more important for your web site to be viewed well on multiple screen sizes, including tablets and cell phones. The Bottom Line: If a web site visitor reaches your web site via a mobile device, they are more likely to stay on your site if the site is mobile-friendly.
Responsive Web Site Design is a design technique that creates adaptive web sites; i.e. sites that adapt and resize according to the type of device viewing it. With a responsive web site you can manage and maintain just one web site rather than having a separate mobile web site. The Doylestown Web Design web site is an example of a site that uses responsive design. To see it in action, view this web site through your desktop or laptop, and then again through your tablet and mobile phone. You will see how the page content reorganizes iteself based on the screen size. Another way to quickly see this "response" is to simply resize your web browser. Other example responsive sites are Aqua Bello Pools, Bucks County Covered Bridge Society and McCloskey Partners.
