Currently, thousands of different devices are being utilized to access your website. And in order to reach the maximum number of users, your website needs to be able to adapt to any device that is being used. This is where responsive web design comes in.
Responsive design goes beyond mobile, as it dynamically adapts to fit any device that your website is being viewed on; including laptops, desktops, tablets, and smart phones. Mobile only designs require that you develop a different website that you will have to maintain, support, and enter and track content separately. Alternatively, responsive web design is one website, one URL and one content entry that can be viewed seamlessly across any device.
Responsive design is also future friendly, as it is built with the present and future in mind. Mobile designs are only able to adapt to the most popular devices that are available at the time of development. However, responsive websites are able to adapt to any device available now and in the future.
So get out of the past and step into the future with responsive web design.
