For many years now mobile browsing has become essential and in some cases an obsession.
Mobile browsing surpassed desktop back in 2015 and is continuing to increase in usage. It’s hard to imagine a life without a mobile phone now and how easy it is to use and browse the things you want and need.
That’s why it’s so important from a web design and developers point of view that all websites are mobile friendly and responsive (meaning it responds and changes to fit the screen of a tablet/mobile).
If your site is non-mobile friendly then it’s going to be very difficult for users to navigate, browse and click-through links.
They’ll have to scale and swipe just to locate and click what they want to click, and will become annoyed and frustrated because of the extra effort they have to put in. Some might even take one look at the non-responsive site and leave straight away to go to someone else’s responsive and faster site. Losing you potential customers and business. When the average user spends most of his or her time on responsive, intuitive sites, they will naturally feel a bit shell shocked with the difference of more bare-bones, unoptimized sites.
Responsive web design is vital for users to be able to use any mobile, tablet or computer. This means that no matter what screen size, platform or orientation, that the content you see will adjust and adapt to the correct size and area.
Customers want an online experience that is simple and user-friendly no matter where they are or what device they are using. So ask yourself, how important is it for your site to become mobile friendly? The answer is very! Smartphones have been a paradigm shift for the mobile phone world. A vast majority of the world now uses a smartphone. Usage will continue to increase and technology will only expand the user experience further. Having a fully functioning mobile site is a requirement for any business now. If you stay up to date and treat your mobile site as you would your desktop site, you will be rewarded with revenue and business return.
