We have been trialling a new plug-in this month on our own site to see if it helps to reduce the bandwidth used when downloading responsive designs onto mobile platforms. So far we are excited to announce it’s working really well and we are ready to offer this same opportunity to our clients.
One of the major downsides to responsive design is that there is no practical way to prevent content that is 'hidden' when viewed in a mobile resolution but we now have a solution to this! So now mobile users viewing content heavy sites which utlise responsive design aren't penalised with uneccessary bandwidth overhead.
Most agencies will look at either a responsive design strategy or a pure mobile strategy. If you are still not sure which one would suit you, give Steven a call and he’ll talk to you about the differences.
