Mobile Website Vs Native AppsMobile websites vs Native apps for your business?
Mobile websites vs Native apps, a hot debate that interests everyone who is looking to have a mobile business. Once you establish that a mobile presence is not an option but a necessity today, the next decision to make is whether to have a mobile web app or a native mobile app or probably both. At first glance, it is possible to mistake them for the same thing and both provide a satisfactory user experience. Two defining factors to be kept in mind while making this choice are, budget and requirement.

Developing mobile applications entails expertise in different SDKs for different platforms. This means a higher cost of investment and for a small to mid-sized organization this could be a serious consideration. Even large well-known companies may sometimes require a low budget app. Under such situations mobile web apps are a wiser venture. They do not require special SDKs for different browsers and so prove to be more pocket friendly and time effective. Not only is the initial cost of investment high but also the long-term support and maintenance cost of native mobile apps is higher.

Secondly you have to outline your requirement. If you are just starting out in the mobile internet arena and want to be reachable to maximum mobile users, the better choice would be to have a mobile website rather than a more specific mobile app. Mobile websites are more easily reachable as one does not have to go through an online store to access it. Users do not have to manually upgrade the version. A web app released in any form will be displayed uniformly to all users it does not entail approval of an app store which is the case with mobile applications. Mobile website links can be shared between among users whereas a mobile app cannot be. It needs to be downloaded and installed from the online store.

A mobile application is preferred in scenarios where either the regular website is so well established that making a specific app simply strengthens the marketing or when an application is to be built to serve a very specific purpose on a certain mobile phone say a gaming application.

Mobile applications generally make use of some native features of the mobile like GPS, memory, camera and computing power whereas mobile web apps have restricted access to these features. They are more of a mobile friendly way of making their content available to users. A native mobile app is more easily searchable through the online store which also provides a quality and safety review. Although mobile apps cannot be shared, they have the advantage of being used offline as well unlike internet enabled web apps. Mobile apps are especially useful to those websites which draw heavy traffic on their regular website. As they are developed very specifically, the speed and performance of mobile applications are higher than their web counterparts.

Statistically speaking, if you want to market yourself to the people who use the internet for shopping, surfing and entertainment purposes you should opt for a web browser and for the purpose of data management, navigation and social media networking a mobile application is advisable. The world of mobile internet is here and now is the time to have a sound mobile business in place. There are risks involved in making choices and decisions but these are necessary risks. The ultimate decision of choosing between mobile applications and mobile websites should be made keeping in mind all the criteria, requirement, target market and technical aspects.

Mobile Site: A website that is specially designed to be viewed on a mobile device. the overall look and feel remains much the same as its desktop counterpart but is lighter and faster.

Responsive Design: A website built using responsive design technique looks exactly same when viewed on different devices. It simply adapts and resizes to the screen sizes its being viewed on.

As we approach the pinnacle of mobile usage, handheld devices are quickly becoming a preferred choice for browsing. After all who wouldn’t enjoy an access to his favourite sport website or urgent ecommerce portal while on the go!
There exist more than a single way of expressing yourself in the mobile world. When it comes to choosing between a mobile site and a responsive design, as a business owner you might want to take a few things under consideration before making a call.

What is the type of business?
This is very crucial point to be taken into consideration. A mobile website is designed to address direct uses like booking, searching and shopping, where the focus is on allowing users to make quick decisions and carry out exactly what they want, in the minimum time possible. Whereas, a responsive website is more informative and detailed. When the purpose of the website is diverse and the data is to be constantly updated and modified, it is more suitable to opt for a responsive design.

Do you have an extensive desktop website?
Building a responsive website usually takes longer as it targets a number of screen sizes. Although it only entails making changes to the CSS, sometimes when optimizing the same content for smaller screens, you may need to hide certain portions of it depending on the layout. In such cases, the website needs to be redesigned from scratch for consistent optimal viewing across all platforms. This means more lead time. So, in case an existing desktop website is already large and complex, it is advisable to build a separate mobile site rather than redesign the whole thing. Not only does it save time but also expenses.

Do you want a separate website for your mobile presence?
Mobile users are usually on the go. So, going through a lot of data and information may prove to be a problem sometimes. In this case, you can have a separate mobile site for your mobile visitors that operates independent of the desktop site. A platform detection technique diverts the users to the right website, giving them a comfortable user experience.

Do you want the same web content to be displayed on all platforms?
Going for a mobile website means maintaining a separate silo of content as it is a stand alone website on its own. Even if you have claim to manage your content through a very elaborate CMS, there will be areas that need to be manually taken care of. The data on both sites will have to be separately managed. On the other hand, the only thing changing in websites built with responsive design techniques is the media queries. So, the content remains unaltered irrespective of the platform. Also, when the data is to be frequently updated, responsively designed websites make the process much easier as the change needs to be made only once and not separately for separate platforms.

What is your budget?
Last but not the least, you have to make a choice wisely based on your budget. Designing a responsive website involves great sophistication and heavy technicalities which means higher development charges as compared to a mobile site. But, as your business grows, so does the complexity of your website. So bear in mind that maintaining two separate websites will prove to be a costly affair in the long run.

Are you ready to embrace the newest wrinkle of the mobile world, Responsive Design?
For the first time since 2001, the sales of personal computers has seen witnessed a lower record than the previous year in 2012. This is due to the sudden boom in the number of user friendly screens out there that people are immediately inclined to. According to latest researches, nearly 30% of the traffic that businesses receive is via hand held devices, this percentage is very dynamic as it is quickly increasing.
Mashable has even called 2013 the year of responsive web design! Everyone is in a rat race to be a part of this fundamental shift and there is no reason why you should think twice about having one for your business. Responsive web design is here to stay and there is no denying it!

What is Responsive Design?
The motley of smartphones and tablets is so varied out there that it has become nearly impossible to build mobile apps as per the specifications of all the platforms. The logical solution to this is to build web sites that resize to fit the resolutions of different devices. This is exactly what responsive designing is all about, making a web content optimized for easy reading and minimum resizing.
Say if a regular website has three columns displayed side by side to fit the large broad screen size, a mobile version of it built with a responsive design approach would exhibit either a one column below another display in non touch smart phones or swipe enabled slide like display for touch devices. The user can comfortably view the page without having to constantly zoom in, zoom out or scroll up and down.

Responsive Web Design

How Does it Work?
* The Responsive Web design approach makes use of a concept called the fluid grid concept. It uses multiple fluid grid layouts to resize the elements of a page in terms of percentage rather than pixels which is an absolute parameter.
* Another important contributing factor to responsive designing is CSS media queries. Cascading Style Sheets used with media queries, make use of the characteristics of the media features like width, height, and color along with device features for which the designing is being done. So the content be tailored to deliver specific output without having to alter the content.
* A third aspect of this design approach flexible images. In Responsive Web Designing, the available space is defined in terms of expandable containers. Flexible or responsive images are those whose size is restricted to be within its container size.

Who is doing it?
The idea behind Responsive Design is to craft attractive, device friendly designs that react to the user’s needs and respond to the environment on which they are being used. Designers and developers at MetaDesign Solutions make your websites overcome the constraints of non adaptive websites. Our very first step is to begin with a mobile first approach, where we begin small. If it fits the smallest and finest requirements, it is half the battle won. We design for the small screen and then go about making optimizations for bigger screen sizes through a modular approach. Through responsive web designing we economize immensely on your time and money!

What is Text Layout Framework?

For years text designers, publishers and developers have used HTML for designing textual material for the web. But CSS and HTML come with drawbacks that can be eliminated by using Flash player. Adobe Flash offers a better control over the textual attributes and is independent of the browser or platform being used.

Built on Adobe Flash Player 10, Text Layout Framework is an extensible Actionscript library created to give Flash a radical upgrade in terms of its typographic capabilities. With TLF designers can render amazing layouts, texts and embedded fonts. Developers can either use existing components and extend them or create their own by using the useful tools available in the open source framework. TLF delivers easy to integrate layouts and rich textual matter for the web.

TLF adds new capabilities to Adobe Flash
* Bidirectional and vertical text
* Over 30 writing scripts including Arabic, Japanese, Lao, Korean, Thai, Hebrew, Chinese, Vietnamese, and others
* Text selection, flowing and editing across multiple columns and linked containers
* Rich typographical controls; kerning, ligatures, digit case, digit width, discretionary hyphens typographic case and more.
* Standard keyboard and mouse gestures for editing including cut, copy, paste and undo
* Extensive developer APIs to manipulate text content, layout, markup and create custom text components
* An ActionScript-based object-oriented model for rich text layout that can be changed at runtime

Expected features in TLF 2.0 include:
* Floating image support
* Bulleted and numbered lists
* Performance enhancements

How does it actually help developers?
TLF is not in built in the Flash Player, it is rather a independent component library. Written in ActionScript 3.0 and designed for both Flex 4 beta and Flash CS4 it runs on the new text engine in Flash Player 10 as well as in Adobe AIR 1.5.
Developers can work on about a hundred classes and interfaces organized into ten packages. Owing to its extensible nature, the framework can be customized for specific environments.
For Flash CS4 after downloading and installing a pre-released version one can simply drag-and-drop a text component onto the stage to manipulate it. The new TextArea component, works similarly for Flex 4 beta. TLF also has an option for developers who to work with pure code which involves placing a non-customized version of the textLayout component into your library path for Flash CS4, Flex 4 beta, or even Flex 3.2.

How Developers can help?
As with any open source framework the ultimate progressive development depends on the contributions developers make. A shared learning and discussion environment is what the growth of TLF depends on.
* Ask and answer questions on the forums
* Submit contributions to the public bug database and investigate them
* Request a features etc which would first entail developers to agree with an agreement on the submission and request procedure.
* Read and contribute to blogs
