MOBILE WEB APPLICATIONS
Whether visitors are accessing your site from a PC, a laptop, a tablet or a smartphone they should find the experience hassle free. Your interface should be easy to navigate and quick to understand without compromising the quality of the design. Let our webmasters show you how we do it.
We live in a mobile world. Many computer users no longer even own a desktop or laptop computer. Businesses, seeing the value of this new medium are taking for advantage of it, offering products, games, apps and more.
Every year mobile usage continues to grow at tremendous rates. That is why every company must have a strong mobile presence. Web application development must today consider mobile applications. This applies to the limitations of the mobile context (e.g., small screen, intermittent connectivity), and to the additional scope and features of mobile, hand-held devices such as device context / location, presence of personal data on the device…
Mobile web development requires coding for a multiple devices, all with their own unique capabilities and limitations.

If you haven’t brought your website design into the mobile world you are missing out on a major client base. Creating a hassle-free mobile experience is at the top of all business owner’s minds.
Total mobile data traffic is expected to exceed 10 exabytes per month by 2017. That’s 10 million terabytes per month, or almost four terabytes per second! Or to break it down more simply, there are currently more mobile devices on the planet being used then toothbrushes!
Mobile users expect a more application-like experience. They want smooth load experiences, fast and animated transitions, and application-centric error messages. Mobile users demand that you deliver more with less. The old rules of Web site design and implementation for PCs need a lot of adaptation to create a slick mobile Web app experience. That’s where we come in.

When we work with your company to create mobile websites and apps, we look at several factors:
- What do you hope to achieve with your website design or application?
- How will your audience using your app?
- What’s already out there?
- Will it meet client needs?
- Do existing apps require modifications?
Collaboration with Users:
In designing websites and apps specifically for users of hand-held devices we work with both business owners and potential users to create an app that is user-friendly and does what it was designed to do. We test the design process and the resulting app collecting feedback and modify the design as required.
In our design process our mobile app design team creates a storyboard. The functionality of the app is laid out, problems resolved, design aspects planned, future components and plug-ins considered.
The app, instructions and graphics are field tested to user friendliness. Modifications ensure clear, easy-to-use instructions.
Mobile apps are field tested to ensure that graphics and animations are not distracting. Vector graphics are used whenever possible to ensure loading speed.
Because of the limited amount of space on a mobile device, the number and size of buttons and icons is limited. Space between buttons is also considered and field tested to ensure the layout is practical.
When we design for mobile devices we take the more important features and build these into the core application experience. Additional functionality is achieved through additional plug-ins. We avoid overloading the core part of the app with too many features.
In well-designed websites and apps for mobile devices the user experience must the same on all platforms. Making change from device to device confuses and annoys users.
One of the most important steps in designing a mobile website or apps is testing the design.
Testing the finished product not once but several times with different users and different mobile devices is one of the ways our design team modifies and ensures design flaws are corrected.
Creating a mobile app requires planning, knowledge of mobile device design constrictions, planning, problem solving and working with businesses and users to ensure the app does what it is intended to do rapidly, smoothly and in a user-friendly manner.
