True Mobile Websites

Mobile First

Horton Group’s “mobile first approach” acknowledges the increasing use of mobile devices for reading and interacting with web content. If your website works on a mobile device, it will also work on a desktop or larger viewport. Be ready for the next steps – go mobile!

Progressive Enhancement

After we have achieved a solid "mobile first" design, we begin work on progressively enhancing the concept for larger screens. Headers can be more full-featured, images become larger and special effects are more pronounced. In a nutshell, we enhance the interface as more space becomes available.

Native Applications

We can create standalone native mobile apps or connect the application to your existing Drupal based website. Drupal becomes the content management tool powering both your desktop website and mobile app! This gives you the best of both worlds, a best of breed tool to manage your content along with a platform to serve your content to mobile apps.

Responsive Design

Responsiveness is fundamental to a good website. By following our “mobile first approach”, we automatically achieve responsiveness, no matter which device is used to access the website. Instead of decreasing a desktop design for it to be usable on mobile devices, we go the other way around: start small and then enlarge the design for desktops and larger viewports.

jQuery Mobile

Our tools of choice for mobile development are jQuery and jQuery Mobile, wonderful open-source platforms for creating mobile friendly interfaces for web and native applications. We can use jQuery Mobile to create a fully responsive interface or design your next IOS or Android native application.

HTML5

HTML5 is the next generation of the markup language that created the internet boom over 20 years ago. It allows for better cross-platform viewing of rich media like audio and video. It also encourages cleaner, more semantic coding which leads to less bugs and issues viewing content across various desktop and mobile devices.

Apache Cordova

We leverage the power of the Apache Cordova project to bring the flexibility of jQuery Mobile to native devices. The Cordova library exposes many device specific functions like the camera, voice capture and geo-location to jQuery Mobile applications. Writing mobile apps with jQuery and jQuery Mobile allow you to "write once" and deploy to many app stores including iOS, Android, Blackberry, Windows Phone and Palm WebOS to name a few.
