In this day and age having a smartphone seems to be the norm. People are constantly browsing the internet through their phones and tablet devices whether it’s checking emails, watching videos on Youtube or logging into social media networking sites such as Twitter or Facebook. The number of people that shop online using their smartphones has increased. Some people believe it’s easier shopping from their phone rather than having to log into a computer, therefore it’s important for companies to ensure that their websites are mobile compatible. Many companies’ sales and number of customers have risen due to having mobile compatible websites. Customers can purchase products online via their smartphones. This indicates the level of magnitude that a website with mobile compatibility holds. It’s rather annoying when you visit a website that isn’t mobile compatible and then it takes an eternity to load, when it does finally load up there is no optimisation as everything appears small or crammed in. If your web design has mobile compatibility you’re bound to have more visitors instead of just encountering visitors who will be on desktops.

Most Popular Smart Phones

Android phones and iPhones have become the popular smartphones that a large number of people use to surf the internet, including iOS and Android powered tablets. When a website is not mobile compatible but has Flash, Android phones will receive better content than on an iPhone this is because Android devices support Flash well as Apple devices support Hyper Text Markup Language 5 (HTML 5) which is designed to offer a broad functioning expansion platform for web pages in order to discontinue the installation of third party browser plug-ins like Flash. Recently there have been talks about how flash is not being utilised as much as it used to before. Some web developers have aborted integrating flash in their web design and instead chose to run them with HTML 5. Gradually flash is going to fade out and HTML 5 will be what most websites will employ.
