The power of a web application is the fact that your information is available to you and your team anytime - anywhere. If you have an internet connected device, you expect to be able to access your data. The problem is that there are so many different sizes of internet connected devices.
Applications are used on 4-inch smart phones, 7-inch tablets, 30-inch displays and everything in-between. With so many different sizes, how do we ensure your app will always look good and be usable? There are too many devices to target only one. And a traditional “one size fits all” solution just doesn’t fit. It only causes a lot of pinching, zooming and frustration. The answer is a responsively designed web application.
Responsive design is a technique of creating one app with one look and feel that responds to an infinite number of screen sizes. As the screen width changes, your site's layout changes to ensure the right fit for your users. No matter what screen size is released in the future, your app is ready.
