With many people using phones, tablets and laptops to view websites, it is imperative that yours looks and functions correctly on all of the different screen sizes. This is a problem that many designers and programmers face when designing a website, it’s easy to have a page designed on a desktop PC and think that everything looks good and works well at the testing stage but then it can look awful when accessing it from a mobile device. You may find that the display is not aligned and some of the site won’t function as it should leaving the viewer no option but to leave the site and go elsewhere. This is obviously not what you want when trying to promote your business.
To get round this issue a lot of larger companies have a specific mobile version of their website and/or an App. The website can recognise what the screen size is of the device that is being used to view the site and display the correct version. Mobile sites are often more basic and have larger display text that can easily be read from a small screen, they also tend to have easier navigation around the site with not as many navigation tabs onscreen.
