Quintagroup’s team of professionals has vast experience in creating web apps for various uses. Our developers always make sure to build and deliver robust and interactive web applications that fit customer’s requirements completely. But first, what is a mobile website and how is it different from a mobile application?

A mobile website is just like any other website out there but designed for smaller displays and a touch-screen interface. Besides having all the features of a regular website, like playing videos, showing images, etc., a mobile website can also have location-based mapping or a click-to-dial feature. Having integrated some features of mobile applications, a mobile website doesn’t need to be installed onto a device, it just adapts to smartphone and tablet formats.

Building a mobile website for a business brings quite a number of benefits.

Why mobile web development?

The striking number of mobile phone users equals up to six billion people nowadays with a thousand new users being added each hour throughout the world. Small, user-friendly, light, with a handful of both business-bound and interactive options and eye-catching design templates, a mobile device is a necessity and an accessory that you would hate to forget at home. Moreover, smartphones are becoming even more widely used than PCs or laptops to quickly manage business documents, ensure urgent mail delivery and social network communication, and stay up-to-date with the fast pace of the world.

However, building a mobile website is not an easy matter. Not only do web developers have to take into account the content saturation, but they also have to consider the variety of screen sizes and resolutions, i.e. the technical characteristics of devices.

Major pitfalls on the way to mobile website

Mobile web developers have to consider a number of details while building a mobile website. Most of the problems result from the screen size which differs greatly from that of a desktop. First of all, the problem of content visualization appears as the most general one. Taking into account the circumstances in which people browse the net on their mobile devices (on a train, waiting in a queue, looking for the right place or updated info, etc.), web developers should cooperate with the customers to select the content that would be most user-oriented and display it in the most accessible way. Mobile website users often have little time to wait for the website to download, so if your website is full of sophisticated pictures, you will most probably have either to sacrifice some of them and make your mobile website look simpler, but more effective, or try to optimize the size and placing of images to the screen size. You should also mind the difference between the buttons on the keyboard or a mouse that are most often used to browse desktop websites and the touchscreen display of your mobile devices. The icons should be small enough to fit the finger and to prevent users from being irritated by multiple efforts to change the page or open some image. The graphic characteristics should therefore be adaptable to the technical characteristics of mobile devices and anticipate the user’s needs and requirements.

It is also worth mentioning that modern state-of-the-art smartphones function together with much older models and both maintain web applications. Web developers should therefore account for this versatility and make the design of mobile websites‘ responsive’ to the needs of the users. And with the recent Google algorithm update website owners should pay more attention to the mobile-friendly features and convenience of their sites.
