Designing for Mobile Devices

When you design a website for mobile devices, there will be various different factors to be considered if you want to deliver an enjoyable user experience. Given below are some of the factors to consider:

The Quantity of Content Used

A mobile site would not always be able to fit in everything shown on your regular website. Space is premium on mobile screens and therefore it is important to reduce the content displayed on your mobile version. Limit your content to the most useful and important features and content.

Working on the Layout

Single column web pages tend to work the best on mobile devices. If you want to add more content, ensure your page expands downwards instead of across since scrolling across is generally not as easy on mobile devices.

Creating the Perfect Mobile Navigation

For your mobile website, navigation would be very important. For the Home Page, the site search and navigation can be on the top. The content can be kept for other pages. The navigation can also be kept at the bottom of the page to ensure it doesn’t interfere with the actual content of the page.

Design for Non-touchscreen and Touchscreen Users

Not everyone has a smartphone or a touchscreen device so you will have to ensure that your website is designed to accommodate all types of users. Don’t put in any links for call to action since links are not always easy to tap on, especially when there isn’t enough space.

Designing a mobile website involves a lot of skill, expertise and an understanding of what mobile users really want from their experience.
