More than 25% of 2.5bn mobile phone owners around the world have browsed the Internet via a mobile handset. This means having a mobile friendly website is now a necessity.
FUSIO have extensive experience in the provision of high quality mobile services and applications. We have built mobile-enabled websites for several of our clients, and have extensive experience of developing mobile applications, such as alerts and interactive SMS applications.
Mobile Web Design
In order for a site to work on a wireless handset, it must adhere strictly to website accessibility guidelines, as set out by the W3C. Because of limited screen size, many browsers strip out CSS, and show text in a method similar to how a search engine spider renders a site. Websites must therefore be designed such that the layout without images looks professional and is easy to use.
Most wireless devices provide Internet access using the Wireless Internet Protocol, WAP 2.0 (XHTML sites), WAP 1.x (WML sites) and i-mode (CHTML sites). Even though modern devices do not require the development of a separate, mobile version of the website, the screen size is still severely limited, necessitating special attention to the layout of the site on mobile web browsers.
FUSIO’s Mobile Solution services include:
- Website analysis
- Mobile web design
- Mobile web development
- Mobile search engine optimisation
A number of online resources provide mobile phone simulations, which enable you to view your website as it appears on standard mobile phone screens, i.e. Google mobile proxy [ http://www.google.com/gwt/n ]
If your website does not render correctly for mobile phone browsers, you should seriously consider contacting FUSIO to help adapt your site to attract the growing population of web savvy users that search, browse, book and buy services and products from their mobile phones.
