Is Tablet-Specific Better than Responsive?

Submitted by ImPretty • January 31, 2014 Website: www.websitemagazine.com

A website developed with responsive Web design (RWD) is going to look good on a tablet. It’s going to flow in the right order, the calls-to-action are going to be big enough to interact with and, even though it may be a little slower, that’s all fine and well, because most people are using their Wi-Fi-connected tablets while relaxing on their couches.

Optimizing a site specifically for tablets, however, has its place, according to a new study/whitepaper from Usablenet. The whitepaper states, “Creating a tablet-specific experience must be more strategic than simply resizing buttons and images — responsive design is a hot topic but not a sure solution. It is a mistake to treat the tablet as a large smartphone or a small desktop computer; the tablet environment must be understood and exploited on its own merits.”

    Nice article. You took a lot of efforts in taking that survey Mr. Amberly. Good work. Even I do think that content on tablet looks much better when it is user-friendly. god thoughts on this. who had thought about such a unique topic? you did it! :-)

    “A website developed with responsive Web design (RWD)” is a webpage where the visitors will love. Responsiveness is what people like whenever they visit on one site. The loading time is important to them and so to me, sluggish loading is a no no!

    As much as it will be great to have a tablet specific website the challenge is in the number of sites you will need to create for the different tablets as they understand and process codes differently.

    So i will simply opt for a responsive design that will automatically resize and optimize itself to match every screen sizes. Even if you have the money and time to design tablet specific websites, be sure you will always keep spending as there will be upgrades and changes.

    Some years ago HTML4 was used in designing sites but today there is HTML5 with a difference, so if you made a tablet specific website with HTML4 and new version of smart devices are released will you always have to go back and modify when responsive design would’ve solved all the problems for you?

    Responsive design does good work for most of the time. But if we develop separate design for tablet which is optimized for speed, than it will be much better i guess. I’d simply opt for responsive websites that will be capable to fit on different screen sizes.
