The mobile web has exploded, with hundreds of millions of people now regularly searching and browsing the web using their smartphones.
Any website that doesn't deliver a mobile-optimized experience is missing out on much of the impact that it can have for the rapidly growing mobile audience.
For most of our new sites, we use responsive design, which enables the same set of HTML pages to adapt themselves to desktops, tablets, and phones.
Where appropriate, we can instead provide separate mobile sites, optimized for viewing on the small screens of phones. This approach provides somewhat more flexibility than responsive designs, but it tends to be more expensive to implement and more time-consuming to maintain.
We develop both HTML5 web apps and native phone and table apps.
Our mobile-optimized sites can "feel" much like an app, and these HTML5 apps typically deliver more business value at lower cost, compared with an installed "native" app. A single development effort supports a variety of phones, including iPhones, Android phones, and the latest Blackberry and Windows phones.
There are times when an installable native app is the right solution, so we provide native app development services as well. We specialize in content-focused apps that use the PhoneGap and Titanium frameworks to leverage an HTML5 and CSS3 code base.
Apps for iPads and Android tablets can be especially valuable for delivering content to a sales team or other group of business users.
The flexible database built into the Webvanta CMS provides a great platform for organizing the content, which can then be both presented on a regular website and delivered to a custom app to be stored locally on a tablet (or phone).
