iPhone Mobile Website Development


iPhone is the smart way to be ahead of others in today’s world. Just being connected to the internet is passé today and high flying people do not like the idea of having to switch on a PC to log into the Internet when the same can be accessed with a simple smartphone. As a result of this Smartphone application development has truly come of age. Mobile developers, more so iPhone developers have got into the groove and are developing websites that are compatible with the smartphone.

It has become very important to develop websites keeping in mind the smartphone arena, especially the iPhone market. iPhones are increasingly used by a lot of people. Earlier website developers could afford to make designs that used heavy images, varied fonts and lots of graphics. These websites could only be viewed properly in a laptop or a desktop while viewing such websites on the mobile phones was a painstaking task.

Mobile developers have to keep in mind the various constraints of a small screen while making a website. Businesses are getting aggressive with iPhone development and are creating websites that can be viewed with an iPhone.

iPhone Mobile Website Development- Things to Remember

·         URLs: Try to keep them small and avoid long words and as it increases the loading time.

·         Text: Remember that you are developing a website that has to be viewed in a smaller screen and thus you do not have the liberty to use fancy fonts. Stick to Verdana.

·         Navigation: Keep it simple is the basic rule for mobile website navigation. Do not put the navigation links at the top.

·         Image: iPhone development faces its biggest challenge when it comes to placing images. While it is true that images add the gloss to a website, they take more time to load and are very difficult to resize for the mobile. Thus avoid images as much as you can and even if you use them make sure they are light. Use alt tags to help you in SEO.

·         Avoid graphics: Flash is not compatible with iPhones yet so avoid including videos and other graphics.

·         Easily scrollable: Do not make the website such that users will have to struggle while reading the content. Remember they are using the iPhone mostly for work so make it hassle free.

 

The opportunity for smartphone application development has further been enhanced with offshore development firms coming into the picture with their expertise. In countries like India, leading companies such as Evon Technologies have dedicated iPhone developers who design websites keeping in mind the iPhones. If you are planning to get a website designed for this purpose, it is a very good idea to outsource the same to such companies.
