We recently completed work on the latest version of a Mobile friendly website for Northamptonshire County Council. We had already delivered version 1 of the mobile site last year which promoted core aspects of the main site. The new site aims to make a much larger proportion of the main site available to visitors on mobile devices.
To see the site you can either visit the
main site on a mobile device or navigate directly to
The site runs on a combination of jQuery Mobile and custom built software that delivers the following functionality:
- Replication of the whole main website by using the same HTML but restyling for the smaller screen
- Full site search with paged results
- A to Z functionality
- Location based services
- Mobile Friendly Image Slideshows
- Image rescaling
- Intelligent redirect which can be turned on and off at the page or section level
- Ability to redirect to a custom mobile application at the page or section level
- Ability to display usability messages on the mobile site for when the user experience is better on the full site
Having now built this software we are now in a position where we can apply it to other websites and, with a little configuration, deliver fully functional mobile websites for more and more of our clients.
If you're interested in making your website far more mobile-friendly then give us a call and we can discuss your requirements.
