The trendy examples of modern responsive design have grown quite popular out of a need for homogenous interfaces among an ever-growing sea of devices. Based on the rules of supply and demand, where there’s a demand there is supply. The immense popularity of flexible website layouts has created a market of educational tools for developers […]

Mobile apps are taking over the web and we see more companies directing resources mainly for the use and support of native mobile apps versus traditional websites and mobile web. With mobile internet set to exceed desktop usage on a global scale, the shift becomes even more feasible for developers and companies that build apps. […]
I have been watching the rapid growth of mobile smartphones and tablet devices in the past few years. Internet users have become more crafty getting into native applications and using their mobile browsers for access on-the-go. You hardly even need a wifi connection because of the wide distribution of cell towers across the globe. This […]
On the Internet today, there’s a “need for speed.” Customer behavior is one thing; online behavior for every customer is totally something else. The speed at which a website loads is the moment of truth. Unless the website loads properly and quickly enough, the customer is long gone (unlike traditional business outlets where customers tend […]
The iPad tablet device has grown wildly in a few short years and is certainly here to stay. Mobile app developers are constantly pushing for the next big idea to rack up popular listings in the iOS App Store. The best way to accomplish this is combining powerful programming techniques with simple intuitive user interfaces. […]
The mobile web is clearly changing the way we think about layout design. Even back just 5 or 10 years ago there were barely any developers working on a solution for mobile. Now it seems everybody is doing their Internet surfing on some type of smartphone device. And because of this it’s a good idea to consider adapting your current layouts to fit a changing market.
This process can be difficult without a bit of inspiration. Thus I’ve put together this wonderful collection of 32 mobile websites. These are all live projects you can visit online either from your web browser or on your mobile phone. Many of the ideas aren’t revolutionary but have taken a long time to become adopted into mainstream. Let us know your thoughts or suggestions in the post discussion area below.
Designing for the web used to mean perfecting an HTML and CSS layout in all the popular browsers. Although this is still the case today, modern web browsers have shifted onto many alternative media platforms. No longer is your average web user sorting articles solely from their monitor screen.
I’d like to offer a few ideas on why you should consider designing websites for mobile first. This case study looks at a few simple ideas that are often glossed over – yet have a huge impact on the modern Internet. It’s important that your website can scale with all different forms of incoming traffic.
The whole jQuery library has grown tremendously in the past couple of years. With open resources such as Git and Github web developers have been creating plugins for even richer effects. Some of the team members had a great idea to port this code over to a mobile platform.
In this guide it is my goal to introduce you into the jQuery Mobile platform. There is a lot of material to cover so we likely won’t hit everything. But fortunately the team has made development super easy and streamlined with fantastic documentation. Check out the website and fairly active developer’s forum for more in-depth answers.
