According to a recent survey, around 85 percent of people look at their smartphones immediately after waking. That’s before doing anything else like brushing their teeth and other morning ablutions. Most of the time people will reach for their phones to search for places to go to, say, looking up a restaurant, or going to the mall. Let’s face it, we have become so enamored with our smart devices that it has become a very important part of our life.
Having a website optimized only for desktop in this age of smartphones will leave 85 percent of our visitors out in the cold. People just won’t have the patience to use a magnifying glass and zoom in just to look at information on your site. This is why responsive web design is so important.
Mobile responsive web design, or responsive design for short, is simply the ability of a website to adapt to the screen size of the device it is viewed on. It utilizes modern web principles and techniques to achieve a very user friendly layout to create a very pleasant experience for both smartphone and desktop users. All in all, the experience allows web content to be easily accessible to the intended audience.
Imagine a website layout that dynamically changes as the screen size contracts or expands. This is the beauty of responsive web design. You don’t need different versions of your site for different devices, one version is enough but it is set up in such a way that it reacts to different screen sizes.
