When it comes to technology, there are so many buzz words flying around that it can be hard to keep up. A lot of sites claim to be “mobile friendly” which sounds like a good thing, right? Not exactly. Mobile friendly means a site is accessible via cell phone. You can see the website…but how it looks and functions is a different story. “Mobile-optimized” means that the version you see on your cell phone is custom tailored for a cell phone.
Mobile friendly sites can be a little wonky. They might display what is normally seen on a desktop, but on a screen as small as your phone’s…that requires a lot of pinching and zooming. Certain features aren’t available. Some photos won’t show up. The layout is sometimes completely skewed. Mobile friendly just isn’t always that friendly, especially when it comes to using an online ticketing platform.
Mobile optimized means the site is made specifically to be viewed in a mobile format. Fonts and buttons are larger to view easily and formatted to fit perfectly on the screen - meaning no pinching or zooming required. The layout is completely redesigned in order to be navigable with your fingers. There’s no confusion because a smartphone user’s experience was in mind when this site was built.
