5 Essential Parameters That Every Mobile Site Must Have

If you wish to have a user-friendly mobile website then make sure to fulfill the below listed 5 parameters:

1- A well defined viewing area (or viewport) that adjusts to the device’s screen size. Best approach is to have a responsive website.

2- Content should be displayed in the main viewing area without the need to scroll horizontally or pinch the screen in order to see the entire page.

3- Fonts should scale as expected across various devices for easier reading on small screens.

4- Easy-to-touch elements (e.g., buttons) that are well-spaced from other touch elements. They should not overlap with each other. They should not be so close to each other so that the mobile user cannot easily tap a desired element with their finger without also tapping a neighboring element.

5- Visual design and motion driven by mobile-friendly technology. More help can be found here:
