Have you landed on a site (using your mobile device) where you’ve had to zoom in, pan or even scroll left or right? We all know how difficult it is to navigate site like these. Any site that isn’t responsively designed results in a poor user experience, high bounce rates and ultimately low conversions.

Well, Responsive Web Design is the optimal solution to that. It prevents the unnecessary scrolling, zooming, or panning that occurs with sites that have not been optimised for different devices.

1. Improved User Experience
2. Reduced bounce rates
3. Quick page load

As a software developer, I always endeavour to create responsive web designs for all products I get to work on.
