Absolute create fully responsive, mobile-ready solutions that work across platforms and devices. We’re aware that one size no longer fits all with an expanding range of devices having access to your solutions from mobile devices to watches and televisions.
We consider your audience and associated breakpoints from planning through to integration to make sure your customers can interact with your solution on any screen size. Creating touch friendly solutions and where needed providing platform or device specific apps. As search engines such as Google use mobile-friendliness as a ranking indicator on mobile searches, it’s best practice to invest in a responsive site.
We can also offer different content on the mobile version of your site, such as location-specific functions that use your device’s physical position.
The endless combination of platforms and devices using the web mean that cross-browser, cross-device and functional testing are all vital to your websites success. At Absolute we stay up to date on the most used combinations as well as looking at your specific audience to make sure we’re creating a test plan that suits you.
Using BrowserStack, an industry-standard cross-platform test tool, we can check your website works successfully in hundreds of different combinations using both virtual and physical devices. Checking for simple through to complex errors on browsers including Chrome, Edge, IE, Firefox and safari across a range of different devices and operating systems all mean that your website is primed to work in a wide range of environments.
Some solutions require prototypes, which are a preliminary version of your solution. At Absolute our designers can work with you to create interactive prototypes, immersing you in your solution before any development takes place. This allows us to work together to reach the right solution for you.
You may have heard of CSS referred to by another name such as SASS, LESS, Stylus or PostCSS. These are preprocessors, which are unique syntaxes that add additional features that don’t exist in CSS. These are compiled into pure CSS, which is then served as part of your solution.
Mobile first is a design / development approach considering smaller resolutions first and then adding additional features as the available space increases. By considering smaller resolutions first we can make sure you’re users are getting the core features across platforms and devices.
