For information seekers, internet has turned out to be a spring of information as well as a reliable
source that is growing popular by the day. Building a website is now looked upon as a ’must have’
strategy to bring in more customers, where the site is also used as an ideal platform to trumpet the
differences to gain attention of the target audience. With the possibility of tapping the potentials of
mobile devices, enterprises and brand builders have started to build sites for mobile devices to increase
their reach and build brand appeal in the most fitting manner.

While a team is involved in mobile web development, it should offer its focal attention on some
important aspects to build robust mobile websites. Simpler sites ought to be built for such devices,
where components like the size and graphics need to be considered to accomplish desired objectives.
An aspiring developer is pushed to adopt a different approach as when he is involved in a mobile
website development project. Are there glaring differences between mobile web development and
normal development program?

Devices

In the first place, devices seem to create a big difference when it comes to building a mobile website.
More importantly, an enthusiast taking part in this development project recognizes the significance of
mobile devices and the types pertaining to mobile devices before coming up a suitable solution. This is a
huge difference when compared to the normal website, where the developing team is pushed to create
a site that suits devices that exhibit different features, capabilities and restrictions.

Bandwidth

Another striking difference that is spotted between mobile development and normal development
project takes the form of bandwidth. Typically, mobile web seems to be lighter when compared to the
normal web owing to technology limitations. Since factors like connections to cell-tower play a pivotal
role in case of mobile devices, there are limitations in case of bandwidth, which is not the case with a
normal website. This is another marked difference that prevails between the mobile site and the normal
one.

Audience

The most striking difference is the type of audience who try to gain access to the sites. In case of a
mobile site, people who are on the move who try to gain access to this site. In short, people who are
looking to glean information urgently, people looking to gather similar type of information again and
again, as that of weather information, happen to be the target audience for mobile sites, which is again
a marked difference when compared to the normal sites.
Before getting involved in a mobile web development project, an aspiring developer should take note of
the glaring differences that are spotted between mobile sites and that of normal sites to achieve desired
results in the process.
