With the ever increasing use of mobile devices for general web browsing, it is now more important than ever to ensure that your website is compatible with the most popular devices. This can include: iPad, iPhone, iPod, Android Phones & Tablets, Blackberry Phones & Tablets.
Responsive Web Design or RWD is the term used to describe how a website is built and adapted to suit a viewing environment (i.e. what device. Like an iPad). This is usually done using media queries, fluid display grids and flexible images to a smooth, enjoyable user experience, no matter what device the website is being viewed on.
It seems like every day a new device is coming out onto the marketing, all in a different variety of shapes and sized. Whether it is the pioneering iPad, or the latest Samsung smartphone. Most newer devices also offer both portrait and landscape viewing increasing the need to ensure your website is responsive to these devices.
The solution for this is to write/create multiple stylesheets that cater for the different devices, accommodating for both landscape and portrait orientations.
RWD is not an easy task, and in most cases will require a skilled web designer who is prepared to take a fresh, intuitive approach to constructing a responsive web page.
