Mobile Web Development Miami


Expert-rated mobile web development Miami professional behind PervasivePersuasion.com, WebReDesignMiami.com and Web3.0DesignMiami.com tops device-agnostic #RWD with device-aware #ReSS in the launch of his latest website WebDesignMiamiFlorida.com.


With the launch of his new website WebDesignMiamiFlorida.com - WebFL.US for short - veteran Miami web designer and mobile app developer Bruce Arnold has raised the bar for responsive web design (#RWD) in South Florida by drawing on server-side enhancement technologies (#ReSS) to produce fluid and flexible desktop, notebook, touchscreen pc, tablet and smartphone presentations that not only respond to screen dimensions but also adapt to device capabilities.


"The Mobile Web has arrived," Arnold stated. "The Gartner Group predicted that 2013 would be the first year for which more Web traffic would originate from mobile than desktop devices, and they weren't far off. According to Walker Sands, the mobile share of all Web traffic for Q1 2013 increased 78% over Q1 2012 to almost 24%, and Bluetrain Mobile sees the 50% mark as well within reach by Q1 2014. We predict that the Mobile Commerce share of all eCommerce will grow accordingly, and that the lion's share of all that new revenue will go to the online marketers whose websites are adaptive as well as responsive."


Bruce Arnold's objective with WebFL.US is to provide a textbook example of standards-based front-end web development leveraging device-agnostic #RWD augmented by device-aware #ReSS. Its web pages consist of custom handcoded PHP-generated tableless HTML5 and CSS3, unobtrusive Javascript and jQuery with swipe-and-tap sliders, embedded video and RSS components, and Schema.org structured data for Google Rich Snippets and Semantic SEO - all of which have been (a) W3C standards compliance validated as to source code and style sheets, and (b) visibility and accessibility verified with respect to metadata, separation, accessibility, semantics, syndication, links, internationalization and mobile-friendliness.


The WebFL.US website template is fully responsive to every page request, screen orientation or browser width change detected - with content layout and page presentations adjusted in real time accordingly. At a resolution of 1920 pixels, its four major content blocks fill a large desktop monitor screen from left to right. On a laptop or notebook PC with 1280 resolution, the first three blocks fill the screen with the fourth wrapped beneath. On a landscape-oriented iPad or Android tablet computer with 1024 resolution, the first two blocks fill the screen with the last two wrapped beneath. At resolutions below 970 pixels the header and footer areas are toggled off but still available. On a portrait-oriented tablet with 768 resolution, the first block fills the screen with the last three wrapped beneath. At viewport widths below 768 only the first three content blocks are displayed - below 480 only the first two, and below 240 only the first. And for viewport widths below 200 pixels, all page requests are redirected to a standalone mobile minipage located at m.webdesignmiamiflorida.com.


"Websites designed and developed with our #RWD/#ReSS methodology eliminate the need for separate, redundant mobile websites," Bruce Arnold explained, "And you don't have to resort to native mobile app wrappers that can lock you into specific vendor platforms in order to get visibility on the most highly-prized real estate there is in Mobile Web marketing: the mobile device home screen. Your audience doesn't need to download anything from any app store, and they can easily add your one-touch icon to the homescreen of their Android, Apple or other tablet or smartphone."

Responsive Web Design By Miami Web Design Firm Adds Broad Accessibility To High Visibility

Web Design Miami RWD

New website for nationwide commercial and hospital laundry supplier of recyclable soiled linen bags and hamper stands combines best features of mobile-friendly device-aware and device-agnostic RWD.

)(

Streamline Solutions LLC opted out of the great web design Miami device-agnostic versus device-aware RWD debate by combining the advantages and avoiding the pratfalls of both in the front-end development of their recently launched Web 3.0-ready website StreamlineSolutionsUsa.com, also accessible as SoiledLinenBags.com.

Streamline Solutions provides hospitals, healthcare facilities and commercial laundries throughout the United States and Canada with soiled linen bags, laundry hamper stands and other medical and hospital laundry supplies. In business since 1999, the first two iterations of their website long enjoyed the high search visibility afforded by semantically-optimized W3C standards-compliant web development. And with the recent launch of their third generation site, they add the broad accessibility potential of a fully responsive web design. According to Ross Sanders, Vice President of Sales and co-owner of Streamline Solutions, "The Web is going mobile and we are responding to that. The new web pages Bruce Arnold designed and developed for us are, in fact, about as 'responsive' as you can get. From flip phones to tablets to full-sized desktop monitors, the screen presentation adjusts in real time to optimize the viewer's experience."

Scripted in server-side PHP/MySQL with client-side jQuery/Javascript and rendered as W3C-validated HTML5/CSS3, the new SoiledLinenBags.com has an integrated WURFL DDR (device description repository) and leverages the best features of device-agnostic and device-aware responsive web design coupled with semantically-optimized front-end web development to assure both high search visibility and broad device accessibility. Mobile microbrowsers with screen resolutions below 240x320 are automatically routed to their W3C mobileOK "MiniPage" located at m.soiledlinenbags.com. Mobile browsers with screen resolutions of 240x320 or higher are routed to the full presentation but given the option to drop back to the MiniPage. For all web browser screen widths of 240 pixels or above, the Streamline Solutions presentation - including text, images and animations - automatically expands, contracts and adjusts horizontally, vertically and in real time up to a parameter-modifiable maximum of 1300 pixels and is screen-centered beyond that. This assures an ideal presentation for virtually anyone using popular desktop and notebook browsers like Chrome or Firefox as well as tablet and smartphone browsers like Opera Mobile for Android devices or Mobile Safari for iPad/iPhone. Zoom is enabled by default for Mobile Web browsers, but for mobile devices with glitchy zoom capabilities like the original iPad a footer link is provided to disable it.

"Streamline Solutions has a reputation of being one of the most flexible and responsive laundry supply companies in North America," observed Miami web design veteran Bruce Arnold, "and Web3.0DesignMiami.com and WebReDesignMiami.com worked very hard to develop a design for them that projects those admirable qualities."

Miami Web Developer Demos Mobile-Friendly Device-Aware Responsive Web Design

Responsive Web Design: Device Aware vs. Device Agnostic

New manufacturer website shows why major players like Google, eBay, Yahoo, Facebook, Twitter and Netflix use device-aware server-side device detection rather than device-agnostic client-side media queries to deliver RWD.

)(

According to Miami web developer Bruce Arnold, "Responsive Web Design" is not achieved by ignoring web client device capabilities but by detecting them and tailoring your presentation accordingly. He cites the recently launched HTML5/CSS3/jQuery website PetersonIndustries.com as a prime example of how "RWD" should perform.

"Peterson Industries asked for a simple website to showcase the shower and closet doors they manufacture and share their product specifications with the architects, contractors and distributors who comprise their market." Bruce Arnold explained. "The device-aware responsive web design we developed filled that bill by making those specs easily accessible via desktop, notebook, tablet or mobile browser."

PetersonIndustries.com was designed by WebReDesignMiami.com, developed by Web3.0DesignMiami.com and optimized by PervasivePersuasion.com to provide high visibility coupled with broad accessibility and assure what Wikipedia calls an "optimal viewing experience - easy reading and navigation with a minimum of resizing, panning, and scrolling - across a wide range of devices (from desktop computer monitors to mobile phones)." Every semantically rich and search friendly web page consists of custom handcoded PHP-scripted HTML5 and CSS3 that is validated W3C standards compliant, I18n issue-free and passes seven tests of Semantic Web (Web 3.0) Readiness. This assures not only maximum visibility in search engines but almost universal accessibility across a broad range of PC, Mac, desktop, laptop, notebook, tablet and smartphone browsers - including FireFox, Chrome, Safari, Internet Explorer and Opera.

An integrated and highly accurate device description repository (DDR) - which unlike CSS media queries places no extra load on mobile phone CPUs - is used to detect devices and tailor the presentation of a common content base for the specific dimensions and capabilities of standard web browsers as well as Android, Apple iOS and other smartphone user agents like Opera Mobile. For not-so-smart phones - or roughly 75% of the Mobile Web marketplace - the website sports a W3C mobileOK MiniPage accessible directly via "m.petersonindustries.com" using microbrowsers like Openwave or Obigo.

"Responsiveness like that is not possible relying solely on device-agnostic RWD tools such as media queries, fluid grids and flexible images," Bruce Arnold advises. "There are a lot more issues to consider and address than all those iframe-based responsive web design checkers check and RWD testers test. That's why Twitter abandoned their client-side device-agnostic initiative in favor of a server-side device-aware RWD approach. As we said before... iFrames are not iPhones."
