Welcome to Mobile First Design. Although this site is new, we have been on the web for over twenty years. Our focus has changed over that period as much as the web has changed. As our logo implies, we build websites starting from a small screen and expand from there. This method is often referred to as a responsive web design (RWD). It is a design approach aimed at creating sites that provide an optimal viewing experience across a wide range of devices. The same site works on the mobile phone in your pocket, tablet in your backpack and computer at your office.

It load like regular website but offers the user functionality such as working offline, push notifications, and device hardware access traditionally available only to native applications. However, unlike a native app, you do not have to download it from the app store and it still gives you an app-like experience.

Unlike store apps, it is one code base thereby minimizing development time and your costs. It works even when your cellar connection is off or your internet is down. Best of all in runs in your browser.

There are two main ways to build a digital product for mobile: native apps and web apps (web applications). Web apps are digital products that work through the internet browser of your mobile phone which can use some features of your phone. A web-app is built once, with one set of coding and works on all mobile phones (as well as on desktops) Web apps, on the other hand, are cheaper to develop, more flexible and have lower maintenance costs. They can have faster download times and are very easy to update. You also don’t need the app store to get downloaded. PWAs were championed by Google as early as 2015 and finally accepted by Microsoft and Apple in 2018, so they can now be used on Apple and Microsoft devices

A 3-year old Google study shared that an average user has about 36 apps installed on their device and uses just nine of them on a daily basis. Statistically, only four percent of the apps will be used for over a year
