Optimizing web applications for Android

We start this discussion by considering how to code web applications so they’re viewable
both by desktop clients and by mobile platforms such as Android. Developing
web applications for Android can be viewed as a continuum of options. On one end is
a site created for universal access, meaning that it’ll be visited by both desktop and
mobile users. On the other end of the spectrum is a website designed specifically for
mobile users. Between these two extremes are a couple of techniques for improving
the user experience. We’ll use the term mobile in mind—this refers to a website that’s
not exclusively written for mobile users but expects them as part of the regular visitor
list. Let’s begin with a discussion of designing your site with mobile in mind.
