Device specific approach (Mobile)
There has been a continuous development of the smartphones ever since the 1990s,many revolutions took place , from a mere device whose primary utilisations were restricted to calling, short message services , calculators and calendar, transformed into constellations of mobile applications. The regular release of the latest smartphones with the updated mobile technology has made the people spend thousands of bucks for the sense of self-augmentation.
There are innumerable mobile approaches where websites can easily be operated without any trouble. The latest approach is Responsive web design.
Web Design Approach
Web design refers to an intricate network where an application programme is stored on a remote server and rendered through the internet. Development of web design depends on the amalgamation of development and IT. It is basically a streamlined approach.
Services That Mobile Caters
Mobile web app basically requires two separate versions – one basically for websites and another one for mobile. On the contrary, it has a medium development cost. With the correct knowledge of its functionality and features, implementation time can be reduced successfully. For a successful UX, it is basically designed for the latest mobile application further utilising with HTML 5 and jQuery. It ensures efficient performance and versatility as well.
Services that Web Design Caters
It basically focuses on a single version. It ensures optimisation across all the latest mobile devices. It provides tractability in websites which are easily visible across all mobile devices. It ensures lesser efforts even it has to optimise with all the worldwide mobile devices.
Key challenges faced by web designs
Although it provides single version, its development cost is considerably high. The cost has a positive correlation with the involvement of elements. There is a huge requisite of specialised knowledge, as the website gets more complex, its time of implementation increases accordingly .UX is slightly less due to its single version approach, with high development cost with the immense scope of optimisation across mobile devices.
Key challenges faced by Mobile
Diversified platform and pixel densities are responsible for the challenges faced by the device-specific approach (mobile), screen elements vary with the screen size. So it has got less adaptive screen design. The connection of API is still primitive, the sole responsible factor is variation in the mobile data connections and different standards of Wi-Fi. It is not restricted to the variation of APIs, but also OS versions. OS versions update pop up very fast as compared to the android. So it leads to the fragmentation of the platform .Mobile sites ignore the regional traits and target audience.
After considering all the advantages and key challenges of device-specific approach i.e., mobile and web design approach, both are essential for our daily life. As far as mobile approach is concerned it is flexible enough focusing on the two separate versions. It deals with high UX, with sorted navigation approach i.e. navigation can easily be enabled from top to bottom and even left to right, faster implementation and ensured optimisation. But it is widely accessed and can easily be taken from one place to another. Similarly, web designs ensure correct layout and content. Web designs ensure responsive blog, media sites. With a summative assessment, it can be said that both approaches have their own pros and cons, so it is very difficult to judge which one is better than other.
