Is your website Mobile Friendly? 600 515 Editor

Is your website Mobile Friendly?

Being “mobile friendly” means that your web site can be viewed on a mobile phone, such as an iPhone, Android phone, Windows Phone and so on. This doesn’t necessarily mean “Tablets”.

So am I mobile friendly?

It’s easy to check.  Really easy.  Look at your web site on your Computer.  Narrows the width of your browser to roughly 2 inches wide.  Does your web site “collapse” down, yet still easily readable, with menus that can be clicked and expanding/opened?  Do the images fill the screen or display in an easy-to-read mobile format?

If the answers to the above are all “yes”, then your web site is mobile friendly.

Another way is to use Google’s own Mobile Friendly test page.  Go there, enter your web site, and hit the button.  It’s easy.

If you are still not sure, just go to your web site on your mobile phone’s browser.  Do you need to “pinch-out” to zoom in to see your site’s content?

This is the classic example of a badly designed non-mobile friendly web site.

Do you really want your readers to have to zoom into every single page to read your site, and see your products and information?  Of course not.  And having “m.mywebsite.co.uk”, is not mobile-friendly.  That is a second web site – a “mirror” of your main one.

Mobile-friendly means it collapses to view on a mobile phone

If you look at this web site, or the BBC web site for example, collapse it down and it will adjust sizes and widths and even layout.  It helps if your main menu doesn’t fill the top of the screen, but it’s not absolutely important.  As long as it’s not a tiny version of your site the reader is viewing, it is correct.

 

It’s vital that your web site is designed in this way, and if yours isn’t contact your web site developer… or contact 79DESIGN!

Responsive Web Sites – as they should be built 150 150 Editor

Responsive Web Sites – as they should be built

At 79DESIGN we are always developmenting better ways to make a responsive web site on mobile, appear even better.

Even now, design companies build web sites that are not great on desktop, and on mobile they are even worse, because there are been little or no foresight into the users who will see these sites, leading customers to “pinch-zoom” each page.

We work differently. We build a web site so that it is responsive, so that it expands and contracts and shows off the menu and imagery at it’s best, no matter what device it’s viewed on.

Even now, we meet people who say their site is ok, but when we show them a responsive site, they say “goodness, I can read that”. This is how it should be. 79DESIGN builds web sites how they should be built.

We support you during and after completion.
