Responsive web design is a relatively new approach to website design that ensures users have the best viewing experience no matter what device they’re using. The use of mobile devices to surf the web is growing at an astronomical pace and traditional PC sales have slowed. And now that Google is prioritising mobile-friendly sites in its search results algorithm, it’s essential to make sure your site is optimised for mobile by using responsive design.
A multitude of different screen sizes exist across phones, “phablets,” tablets, desktops, game consoles, TVs, and even wearables. Screen sizes are always changing, so it’s important that the Book of Remembrance software can adapt to any screen size, today or in the future.
In the last twelve months two thirds of visitors to the Book of Remembrance accessed the service via a mobile device.
With this in mind the software has been designed from the ground up, focusing on improving user experience, reliability and download speed. Our aim is to provide the best user experience for viewing the Book of Remembrance, whatever the device.
Responsive Design is the recommended technique for optimising a website for different devices, including desktop computers, laptops, tablets and smartphones.
