Our research found that 1 in 4 users visit websites with mobile devices. Of those users, about 75 percent are using smartphones and 25 percent are using tablet devices.
What’s mobile-responsive, anyway?
A mobile-responsive website site adapts the content of the page to display in a readable format for a mobile screen and also makes navigation possible on the mobile screen. Mobile-responsive sites detect which type of device is being used and reformat pages for each type of device.
So it’s not surprising that tablet users spend more time on each page and view more pages than smartphone users. The tablet’s larger screen makes it easier to view a website that’s not necessarily mobile-friendly. Nonresponsive sites are extremely difficult to navigate with the much smaller screen of a smartphone.

A lot of these searches are done via mobile apps . At Wendy Morris Realty we bring you three separate versions of our site to view on a Desktop , Tablet or Mobile Device.
