Although most websites can be viewed on mobile devices, there are a few things

you should be aware of:

  • Flash – If you have a website built entirely in flash or it contains flash elements, phones such as the iphone do not support Flash and thus your website will not show up properly.
  • Smaller Screen Sizes – Due to the smaller screen sizes some websites may not be easy to navigate and read. Using a separate stylesheet for mobile devices will allow you to display your website differently when accessed via a moible device. (Your web developer will be able to help you with this)
  • Slower connection/download speed – A website designed for mobile will load in about 4 seconds, while a desktop site can take up to 40 seconds or more to load on a mobile device.
  • Mobile Compatibility – Just because your website looks good on the iphone, do you know how it looks on a Blackberry or Motorola Razr? Similar to web browsers, mobile browsers render websites differently too. Ensure your site looks the same across all mobile devices.
  • Quick Content Delivery – Mobile users on the go need different information. They should be able to find it quickly, and easily.
