Are Your Website Mobile Friendly?

By
Real Estate Agent with Coldwell Banker Dynasty

 Previously I have not thought about making my website "mobile friendly" because there are too many mobile devices and it takes a lot of time and resources. If it works with the most popular browsers such as IE and Firefox, that would be fine with me and most of my clients.

 Things have been rapidly changing and with the introduction of tablets such as the iPad, having your website work with a mobile device is very important. According to Flurry Analytics on issue 176 of Web Designer Magazine, 67% of all new mobile app project starts with the iPhone, with the iPad having a 22% share, Android with 10%, and 1% for other.

 Is your website mobile-friendly? If not, would you make the investment?

Thank you, Song.  We are re-designing our Websites at this time.  

Your reminder to make them iPad, iPhone, Blackerry Playbook, and Samsung Galaxy friendly is spot on.

Yes, my website is mobile friendly as of this year.  We created an app that will work on your iPhone or iPad.  We're working at expanding that to othr mobile devices.  The app is amazing!

Just read that mobile searches are up 130% year over year as reported by Google. It's more a reference to shopping, however still relevant. Here is the link: http://www.bgr.com/2010/12/13/google-mobile-searches-up-130-year-over-year/

Song,

We are designing every web site to be ipad friendly, and all the luxury flash websites have rolled out additional websites, so that they don't lose sale, because flash equals blank on an apple mobile ap...A

I have to say I was totally enthralled with Flash and what it was capable of, initially.  It wasn't until every other person that tried to bring my site up on their phone and got nothing that I realized that a platform like Wordpress was the way to go for mobile users.  Now I have both.

Good reminder. I am meeting with my web designer in the morning. I'll remember to discuss this with him.
