What Makes a Mobile-Friendly Website?

A mobile-friendly website is any website that works well on mobile devices.

This has become a huge issue in the last several years because of the growth of smartphones and tablets. Smartphone users are all familiar with the struggle of trying to read a site that doesn’t function on a small screen.

Responsive Website vs. Mobile-Friendly Website

What makes a mobile-friendly website?

Mobile friendly websites function well no matter what size screen you’re looking at it on.  The main difference between a responsive website design (like this one you’re visiting right now) and a mobile-friendly website is this.

Responsive design changes based on whatever size screen you’re using. This is a more customized experience.

A mobile-friendly website, in contrast, is static. The content and layout doesn’t change based on the screen size. It works well no matter what the screen size. This feat is usually achieved with a minimalist layout, content, and navigation.

So, a responsive design is mobile friendly in that it works well on all devices, but it does this by adapting to the screen. True mobile friendly website design is just a simple design that doesn’t change but still looks great.

Does that make sense?
