Nowadays, people consume content on various devices from an all-touchscreen smartphone, to a tablet, laptop, PC, and even a Smart TV. Traveling around the Waterloo and Kitchener areas, it is easy to spot out people carrying multiple mobile devices at a local coffee shop or pub; or sufficing their mobile needs with the ‘Phablet’ device which is a large screen phone that blurs the line between smartphone and tablet – the most notable examples are the iPhone 6 Plus and the Galaxy Note.
With all the many screen sizes for devices which exist, Responsive Website Design is a web design approach aimed at optimizing sites to provide an optimal and immersive viewing experience; this distills to easy reading of text, easy navigation with minimum resizing, panning, and scrolling.
Ever came across a website on your mobile device and you had to pinch to zoom to read the text? Or had to scroll to view a picture? These are examples of websites not being responsive to the device size; as the website was only optimized for a desktop/laptop experience.
As more and more people consume content on mobile devices, it is important for websites to look great on all viewable devices so that the message of your business remains consistent across all device sizes. Mobile payments and transactions are on the rise in the Waterloo and Cambridge areas and Isaacs Software has been developing mobile sites with payment gateway solutions that have been helping businesses increase revenue and drive growth.
In a world where people are increasingly using their smartphones and tablets for everything (partly because such devices are easier to carry and can do the same functions as computers and laptops) responsive website design will no longer be an ‘after thought’, it will be a priority.
Isaacs Software understands this as it incorporates the most current responsive website design techniques for its clients in the Toronto, Kitchener and Waterloo area . Isaacs Software’s team of web/software programmers and designers have the knowledge and experience in ensuring that your website looks great on all device sizes.
