Responsive Design is here
The use of smartphones and tables is exploding and soon more users use the internet via mobile devices than via more traditional computers. Forward-thinking companies should invest in responsive design today.
Constantly new devices and platforms
iPhones, iPads, Android phones and Windows Phone are just a few examples of devices that have been added in recent years and new platforms and screen sizes are in a steady stream.
Earlier you needed to build different versions of a website for each type of device, but the large platform range do today makes it unreasonable. Fortunately, there is now a solution that automatically adapts the design of the site to different devices and screen sizes. Let us introduce Responsive Design.
What is Responsive Web Design?
A website with support for responsive web design dynamically adapts the content to the screen size of the browser. On a site with three pictures in a row on a big scare will for example customize images as they become smaller and placed under another on a cell phone so that visitors do not have to scroll sideways.
Many advantages with Responsive Design
It takes a little extra time to comply with Responsive Design but it is outweighed by the many benefits it brings:
Works on all modern platforms
Becomes less costly than developing multiple versions of the website for different devices
Managed from a single system and management interface
Provides a more comfortable user experience (for example visitors do not have to scroll sideways and do not need to zoom in / out to read the content on the website)
Ability to adapt the content to the content highlighted or visible only to a specific device (such as clarifying contact information for mobile visitors)
Using Responsive Design also shows that your company, organization or brand is forward thinking with an eye on technological developments.
