Mobile usability has fundamentally changed because of the increasing use of mobile devices and their versatility is always growing.
According to mobile industry reports, 7.12% of all website traffic worldwide came from handheld devices in 2011. In 2012, that figure rose to 11.78%.1 According to eMarketer (a leading digital media market research firm), more than 58% of American adults will be regular mobile web users by the end of 2016. Tablets and smartphones are becoming the default choice for connecting to the internet. The web has become an essential part of our lives, and users are connected to their internet devices from anywhere and all the time.
Some of the challenges are the adaptation of content on a smaller screen and accessibility to links; if these are too small to read and to click on, visitors can get frustrated very quickly and will no longer visit your website or recommend others to do so.
