Make sure these users can view your site!

More and more people are using their phones and tablets to access the Internet.  You want a website that will work properly on these devices?  Well here’s how! 

Flash Animation
Currently, the mobile Apple products that are so popular are still incompatible with Flash. Apple is a control freak, and allowing Flash would violate their Terms of Service Agreements that entitles them to full control of the development platforms on their devices.  It would take too much power out of their hands and they don’t like that.  But, even without Flash Compatibility, Apple products are still king.

Other limitations
The other limitations on developing websites for smart phones are minimal.  Most support Javascript along with HTML and CSS.  And most of the other technologies used for Web Development like PHP programming and MySQL Databases are on the server end, and the device accessing the website doesn’t have anything to do with that.  So the biggest concern is simply screen size, and buttons that are easy to hit with your finger.

Getting Around the Limitations
Flash is such a huge part of Web Development that many have made entire careers based on developing Flash Applications.  But Apple’s stance on the Flash Platform has effectively changed the way Web Developers make Websites.  Any website made through Power Chord will, by default, avoid Flash.  But when an item requires it, that would be discussed with the client.

P.S. – You may have noticed that has recently abandoned it’s Flash-Driven Site and has now conformed to the moblie standards of today!
