I bet you’re probably too busy doing your job every day to worry about the inner workings of the web world. And with all the jargon that gets thrown around, it can be hard to stay on top of current web trends. But we do feel there is one term you should know more about: the word “responsive,” as in, “a responsive website.”
As illustrated by the team at Hoodzpah in the infographic below, responsive web design is crucial in today’s increasingly mobile world. (And hey, if you already know what it means,—great, enjoy the fun infographic!)
Here’s the gist: A responsive website adapts to whatever device it’s being viewed on. It’s programmed in such a way that it gauges the screen size and dimension and behaves accordingly. This way, you no longer have to pay for a standard website plus a mobile version. As the graphic states, there are over 230 screen sizes now available for mobile devices, leaving no doubt that responsive is the way to go.
BatesMeron launched our responsive site earlier this year. We hope you’ll give it a look on your myriad mobile devices just to test drive the functionality. Let us know if you like the way it displays on your iPad, Kindle Fire, Samsung Galaxy or other devices. After all, there’s a 91 percent chance you’re within reach of your mobile device at any given moment.
So take a look, try it out and let us know your thoughts—we welcome your feedback on our new site. We can’t tell you how much we enjoy its slick mobility, easy backend and endless flexibility.
I hope this post, combined with the infographic below, helps clear up any confusion you might have about the responsive jargon. I’m always around to answer any questions you might have about web development and trending topics. And if you’d like to talk about how to create your own responsive website, let BatesMeron know!
