This is not a mobile app
Native mobile apps are nice. They are optimized for the very device they were built for.
But a mobile app is of little use to a photographer: you can’t expect prospective clients to find, download and install a mobile app just to see your work.
The goal: mobile websites that behave like native apps.
Mobile websites work on any device and don’t require your clients to install anything. They just open their browser or click on a link, and, voilà…
Problem: building a simple mobile site (like www.photodeck.com viewed on a mobile) is relatively easy. Designing a mobile site that behaves like a native app is complex – much more complex. Someone in the team lost some hair fighting mobile browsers idiosyncrasies ;)
But we’re stubborn.
Our mobile sites will work great in both portrait and landscape orientations.
They will maximize the available screen estate, hiding the URL bar and going 100% full screen when possible (eg. on Android devices).
They will play nice with retina displays. And they will be FAST!
Stay tuned for more…
