propertyskipper responsive design website launching soon...
Propertyskipper.com will shortly be launching its all new responsive site to optimize the experience of property search on tablet and mobile devices.
Responsive design is a technique that creates websites that react to the size of a user’s screen. Responsive design optimizes a browsing experience by creating flexible web pages, optimized for the device that is accessing it. Basically put – it means that if you are searching for property on your iPad, propertyskipper.com will detect you are on an iPad and optimize the page layout to fit your screen.
Traditionally sites have been designed with a PC or Laptop in mind in the first instance and Smartphone or Tablet second, with two separate sites designed for both platforms, meaning in some cases two different versions of the site exist. With responsive design this is not the case, one site is designed for use across all platforms.
Through 2014 the use of mobile and tablet to search the web has grown significantly, including here in Bermuda. Since January 2014, for example, over 40% of search traffic on propertyskipper.com has been from a mobile or tablet, which was up from around 30% in 2013. This is likely to grow to over 50% in 2015.
