  • Expectations are higher and having a dedicated mobile site is not the done thing, this should be a graceful expectation and very much is the norm.

  • Following the guidance of the web industry responsive web design is the done thing, not supporting various devices and form factors is breaking a trend and an unwritten standard.

WordPress development
