How often do you pick up your smartphone? Statistics show that around 85% of shoppers prefer a mobile application over a website while shopping online.
Customers prefer using the application on mobile as it is more accessible and personalized. This new normal has created an enormous global market for mobile application developers and companies.
Companies depend more on customized apps than websites. These apps help them assist everyday operations, including data access, sales support, service support, communications, productivity, etc. Custom apps target unique needs and personalize the services for your customers.
So, in this blog, MarsDevs introduces you to mobile-first CSS.
We have all come across the phrase "Mobile-first" by now. We often thought it sounded trendy and threw it around MarsDevs. Also, this mobile-first approach is critical in every site we build, whether it is Medtrics or Test Helper. But what does "mobile first" mean?
When we talk about the mobile-first approach, we often refer to two aspects. If we consider it philosophically, it is about the optimization of an experience for mobile users. When you put the needs of mobile users first, you might call it a mobile-first approach.
If you consider the term technically, you write CSS in a way that makes accessing styles easy for smaller devices or mobiles. They do not have to wade through the styles written originally for desktop devices. Again, in simple terms, it is about writing the mobile styles first.
Mobiles generate about 60.66% of website traffic, according to studies. In contrast, Desktops and Tablets are responsible for 39.34% only.
The number of website visits from mobile just keeps growing. It surpassed desktop visits back in 2014. So, as mobile viewership keeps growing, the demand for mobile-friendly websites grows exponentially too.
What if people leave?
You are always on your phone! Now, say you open a site while scrolling through Instagram. What if it looks weird and takes time to load? Would you not leave? You would never even consider coming back.
We've all written paragraphs on the adverse effects of a poor design or functionality of a site. People never come back after coming across a site that takes too long to load. Everyone knows by now if the site does not load fast, look good, or work well on mobile, you will lose users.
Creating a mobile experience will always be different than the one on the desktop.
Phones are different from desktop screens in too many ways. These ways include processing power, connection speed, etc. Their limitations are different, and the capabilities account for different solutions.
So, when you design for all devices and not just for a desktop, it makes more sense. Some of the things that makes us side with mobile-first CSS development might include:
