Mobile Web Apps
The distinction between mobile Web applications and native applications is anticipated to become increasingly blurred, as mobile browsers gain direct access to the hardware of mobile devices (including sensors, accelerometers and GPS chips). Thanks to feature rich smartphones and touch tablets the mobile Web has many advantages over the desktop Web we were used to.
Responsive Web design is much more than about throwing a bunch of media queries on the page, choosing the right breakpoints and doubling the size of images for those cool new high-density phones.
Creating content adapted to different devices is a new art. Small devices need targeted imagary solutions and adapted copy for effective communication. Mobile devices and Smart TV browsers have unique controls for navigation, picking dates, form input etc.
The mobile first approach is popular but of course each device advantages should be targeted. With CSS level 4 you can even adapt the website’s contrast according to the ambient luminosity in which the device is used.
CSS3 layout solutions, viewport-relative units, adaptive typograhy will further take advantage of each device’s features.
