    I specialise in mobile device compatible websites.

    Statistics tell us that upto 80% of websites today dont work well on mobile devices like tablets and phones. And of these sites, 60% of visitors will not return, for this reason alone.

    How many people have considered this subject ?

    If you don’t mind me asking, where did you get these statistics?

    There is a big difference between a site that works on a mobile phone and one that has a specific mobile version.

    Most SME’s don’t require a specific site built for their mobile phone as long as the site works ok on the smaller screen. (no flash)

    Note I say phone not tablet – it grinds me when you go to a site on a ipad and it serves you a mobile version. The tablet screen is large enough to use the original site.

    If you are a blogger, or a media company – sites that on which people doing a lot of reading – then you certainly need a website built for a mobile phone. OR if you want to build an interactive app (tablet app as well), but that’s another story.

    A restaurant is another niche that might benefit from a mobile specific website.

    If you do build a specific mobile device, you need to ensure that all the relevant information is included in the mobile version, and you provide a way for the user to go to the full site if they want.

    In an 87-page report, Morgan Stanley analysts have charted the most important online trends and predicted the future of the Internet.

    I specialise in creating ‘one site’ that works on all deployment platforms. On PC’s , Phones, Tablets …

    I have been working in the area for nearly 8 years, long before the smart phone was even thought of. Back in those days we were developing for PDA’s.

    I think responsive design is the way of the future.

    We have started incorporating into our client sites – it’s a learning curve but well worth it.
