Who needs iPhone Friendly Websites?

Lets be honest, The iPhone and the iPad are the most popular smart phones right now. Androids are popular too, but won’t be out selling the iPhone for long.

Here is a little known fact (surprisingly little known). iPhones and iPads do not natively display Flash Animation. For reasons of their own, while the rest of the internet went wild with flash, Apple refused to make their devices flash compatible. Seen as stupid and short sighted at the time, and leaving Apple as popular as the Beta Max tape machines of the 1980’s, most website designers just kept designing more and more intricate flash websites. Who cares if those few Mac users who refuse to download third party flash plugins in order to view flash are so short sighted?

Well now! Who was short sighted? The whole idea of internet e-commerce has shifted to mobile devices like pads and mobile smart phones, and who is the maker of the most popular phones? Apple! I bought apple stock in 2008 at $90 per share. I was afraid to tell my wife at the time. At the time of this posting, my Apple stock is worth over $660.00 per share. Apple dominates. So where does that leave all those “Cool” flash web sites? They are not viewable by iPads and iPhones which are non- jail broken. Or in other words, if someone has a factory set and warranteed Apple mobile device, your flash website is a big black hole in the internet…..Period.

Web designers like me are making money by fixing or adapting websites or more often, putting up duplicate websites that ARE Mac and mobile compatible. Blackberries are not exactly flash friendly either. We use coding like java script to re-direct mobile devices to the more compatible design of your existing website. It’s a growing niche market.

So, what every business needs now is a mobile friendly website, capable of displaying your goods and services to all browsers on every internet capable device out there. That’s what we offer at Parrish Marketing and Design. A clean, appealing website that does the job you intended, viewable by everyone with the ability to get online and access your landing page.

If you have one of those very cool all flash web sites that you cannot see with an iPhone and you cannot give any SEO, then call us at Parrish Marketing & Design. We fix those.

Smart Phones are here to stay

Posted by Todd | Posts | Wednesday 15 August 2012 8:27 am

Everybody wants to run out and upgrade to a smart phone these days. AndroidsiPads and iPhones are becoming easier to afford, and quite frankly, the technology is not going to back track to little folding phones with antennas. What today’s consumer demands is a phone that will get good reception, store their music, tell them exactly where they are, play apps,  and of course, surf the web. If a potential client of your business were to look you up on their phone right now, what would they see? Do you have a cool looking website with flash animation and embedded videos?

Most people don’t know (although a growing number are finding out) that Apple Phones do not see Flash animations. If you have a lot of flash on your website, or if your current website is ALL Flash, iPhone and iPad users will see nothing, then move on to the NEXT website offering your services. You need to make sure that your website is either Smart Phone compatible, or that you have a separate mobile friendly website for mobile phones to be directed to. Android and Blackberry users have the option of downloading a flash viewer, but why should they? Just to see your website? Now to top that off, Adobe will no longer accomodate the newer androids with a flash viewer. Those Flash Only websites will apparently fade into the internet past, with everyone acquiring smaller and more mobile ways to surf the internet.

Parrish Marketing and Design specializes in online marketing, website design (including Flash animation) and search engine optimization. If we build you a website, it will be mobile friendly, or will send smartphones to an alternative page where they can still see what you have to offer online, and can connect with you. Don’t shut mobile users out!
