So recently I am getting more experience with mobile website design. Here are a few tips:
- Text Legibility: Make sure the text is readable at small sizes. Contrast is a must
- Button Sizes: For touchable mobile phones like the iPhone (or even the iPhone touch), button sizes are extremely necessary. Fingers can sometimes be clumsy and really inaccurate.
- Choose Menu Items Wisely: A mobile site should not contain every aspect of it’s big brother site. Instead focus on relevant menu items for users on the go. For restaurants (see LuLu’s Mobile) directions and menu info can be a lifesaver for the on-the-go parent. For a radio show like Rick & Bubba, users want to access show emails as well as social media links
