So Your Site Doesn’t Work on the iPad… >
Ever heard this one before? If your website doesn’t work properly on all mobile devices, you could be missing out on potential customers. A site that doesn’t work properly is an unprofessional reflection on your business.
So why doesn’t your site work on the iPad? With screen resolutions getting better and better, proper resolution is often a factor. For example, the iPad 2’s resolution is 1024 x 768 pixels, and the 3rd generation ups the anti at 2048 x 1536. If you site was designed for widescreen monitors (6:9) you will need to make sure your site still works for 1024 x 768 at the least. Other factors such as element spacing and width can become an issue for the screen size of the iPad.
You don’t have to own an iPad to check your site’s performance on the device. Sites like iPad Peek provide a quick and easy outlet for checking your site’s tablet capabilities. If you do choose to have your site reformatted, make sure that you place the responsibility in the capable hands of a web design expert.
