Responsive websites are designed to come out looking great in all kinds of devices. Businesses in a city like Gloucester can definitely benefit by providing a great website experience in smartphones as well as desktops.
The numbers of smartphone users are increasing every day. A study some time ago put the number of people accessing the Web from their mobile devices at 1.2 billion. The study also found that the number was increasing fast and would be much greater now.
Websites were traditionally designed for the larger screens of desktop computers. Such designs tend to have several problems when viewed on the smaller screns of mobile devices. For example:
Images that look great on desktop lose all their “greatness” when cut off by the smaller screens
When text is compressed into the small screen with a lot of images and boxes, it becomes unreadably small
The result would be that the mobile device user tends to get irritated with the website experience and go elsewhere. And that can mean you lose a potential customer to a competitor who had converted their website to responsive.
Responsive websites respond to the screen size. The same website might have different layouts when viewed in different devices. For example:
Multiple columns on desktops could be converted into single column layout on a small screen
Some incidental images might be eliminated altogether on the small devices
Form fields would be spread out to enable completing them using finger touch
Responsive design eliminates the need to develop separate sites for desktops and mobile. If you have multiple versions of the same site, they might not remain synchronized at all times. Responsive sites, on the other hand, are the same in all devices.
