What is a Responsive Website?
People go on about having ‘responsive web design’ or having a ‘responsive website’, but what does it actually mean? In simple terms it means that your website is able to ‘respond’ to different devices, by changing the layout to ensure the best user-experience for your mobile website visitors.
It sounds simple but how does your site manage to adapt to different sized screens? If your website has not been built with this ability you should definitely look into why, in more detail here. If your website is responsive it will do a number of different things to adapt to the various environments to help the reader.
To begin with, as the screen decreases in size, the text changes layout so that your site visitors can read all the important information about your company. This, it will do, by displaying it in a single column, easy-to-read format.
As well as the font adapting, images will also automatically adjust depending on the size of the device screen. With responsive web designs, navigation also becomes much easier, with buttons increasing in size, to allow fingers and thumbs to be accurate.
