Designing a Successful Website

Successful business owners know that a professional-looking website is paramount to their success. A tremendous amount of business is done online these days, and many people who are interested in a certain product or service go online in their quest for more information. If you are thinking about creating a website for your company, this article contains several points you will want to pay attention to.

You likely want to convey a certain image to people who would frequent your website, and you may feel that this image could be enhanced with the use of classical or other types of music. Why not set your website to music? Almost universally, people report being annoyed by websites that play music. Avoid this major turn off! It is likely to have the opposite effect that you want, as people may immediately close their browser and exit your site. A website that plays music appears unprofessional. Instead, focus on setting the tone of your company with your content and imagery.

It goes without saying that if people find the color scheme of your website and your font choices hard to look at, they will quickly give up. Make sure that you choose fonts that are very easy to read. Stick with ones that are commonly used and avoid fonts that are rare. And avoid putting text on a dark background, as your viewer will have difficulty reading any content. A bright color scheme often looks tacky, so stick with a few neutral or basic colors. Show your color scheme and font choices to a variety of people to get their feedback, as what may be easy to read for you may be exceedingly difficult for someone else to make out. And keep in mind that a website overrun with graphics is often slower to load and looks unsightly. Less is often more when it comes to graphics!

Make sure that your website includes a search feature. Nothing will be more frustrating to potential clients then the inability to search for a product or item that they are interested in. It’s astonishing how many websites do not include this simple feature, so make sure you provide a search option that is straightforward and easy for your viewers to find.

Likewise, make sure that your site is easy to navigate. The degree of ease of navigating your website will make a huge difference in terms of your viewer’s experience, so include a menu on each and every page. Take a look at the websites of companies that you like – what are their navigating methods like? Model yours after theirs. Include your contact information either as a link in the menu or at the bottom of your website.

Mobile Application Development Outsourcing

247 LABS; is involved in mobile application development to run on smart phones for small, midsize and startup companies. These Toronto outsourcing projects are mainly for RIM Blackberry, Palm OS, Windows Mobile, Google Android, Linux, Symbian, Apple iPhone, and BREW platforms. In mobile app developers these mobile apps we are using Java ME, Java/J2ME/J2EE, C, C++, Objective-C, .NET, MIDP, Python, Flash Lite, and other languages and open source technologies along with OpenGL ES, M3G APIs, visual form based GUI Builder, widgets, and interface builders for 2D and 3D graphics, Mobile Media API (MMAPI), Wireless Messaging API (WMA) for J2ME, Google APIs, and others in our software development and outsourcing labs in Canada. 247 LABS; mobility consulting team is designing applications for almost all hardware platforms including Nokia, Sony-Ericsson, Motorola, Samsung, Palm, Blackberry, Apple, HTC, Qualcomm, and T-mobile.

Often the question in mobile and smartphone based application development and design is whether to develop an application as a fat (a mobile device based) or a thin (a server based) client. Due to recent advancements in the mobile and cell phone manufacturing and capabilities from Nokia, Blackberry, Motorola, Samsung, Palm, Sony-Ericsson, HTC, Apple iPhone and others, as well as reliable Internet and mobile connectivity both options are viable. In a fat client model where the application is device based and runs efficiently in the handset without requiring any Internet connectivity, it is often an attractive option. A large number of mobile applications designed and developed on Palm OS, Blackberry, Google Android, Windows Mobile, Symbian, Linux, BREW, and Apple iPhone so far are mobile handset based. On the other hand due to tremendous improvements in wireless carriers’ cellular networks and reliable Internet connections (from AT&T;, Verizon, Sprint-Nextel, T-mobile, Vodafone, O2, Orange, BT, NTT and others) and handsets’ Internet browser capabilities, a large number of mobile apps are being developed to run as thin clients where the main application runs on the server side and accessed through handheld smart cell phones. Multiplayer games, puzzles, music, TV, voice, broadband and other consumer and business applications needing real-time interaction among multiple players and participants are getting popular in the thin client category. There are a few limitations to keep in mind while mobile app developers a mobile app, whether for consumers or enterprises: small screen sizes and varying aspect ratios, and importantly varying hardware and OS platforms. These factors made it difficult to write a mobile app once and run on multiple platforms. Varying nature of hardware platforms, software capabilities and low fidelity APIs made application development for mobile handsets and smart phones quite time consuming and expensive.

We are highly active in mobile app developers Java ME, J2ME Mobile and J2ME Wireless Applications, J2ME Web Applications, including J2ME GPS Based Applications with Eclipse and NetBeans for apps on RIM Blackberry, Google Android, and Linux. In many of our enterprise mobility projects, being executed in 247 LABS;’s Canada based software labs, we are extensively using MIDP and a large number of application programming interfaces like Mobile Media API (MMAPI), Wireless Messaging API (WMA), J2ME Web Services APIs, Security and Trust Services API. In enterprise mobile applications we also use many APIs including Google, YouTube, and others (in Android media support using MPEG4, H.264, MP3, AAC, AMR, JPG, PNG, GIF). In GPS mobility applications we are using permission-based HTML JavaScript location support technologies (Cell, WiFi, GPS, Bluetooth). Java application development approach is getting to be very popular for most Blackberry application development, like address book, GPS, BlackBerry maps and Message application. In most projects Rapid Application Development (RAD) process is used in conjunction with BlackBerry MDS Studio.

We use .NET Visual Studio, C and C++ to develop applications for Windows Mobile applications. Windows Mobile SDK allows us to author, debug, and package our application for delivery from one easy-to-use interface. In .NET we are using ASP.NET, VB.NET and C#.NET (with Ajax capabilities) for these mobile apps development with the latest SDK and device emulators. Some enterprise mobile applications require using SQL Server CE (i.e., SQL CE) for data synchronization and database access. In many of our projects we are exploring to write device-independent Windows Mobile Applications with the .NET Compact Framework.

247 LABS; mobile application development and design team is using C, C++ programming languages for enterprise mobile apps, consumer games, music, TV, voice, broadband and other apps on Symbian, Palm OS, and BREW platforms. For Apple iPhone (and Mac OS X) application design and development Objective-C and occasionally Cocoa are being used.

For graphical interfaces in most mobile applications 247 LABS; Toronto software development team is using OpenGL ES, M3G, Visual form based GUI Builder, some widgets, and interface builder for 2D and 3D graphics. For most platforms (like iPhone, Blackberry, Google Android, Palm, Windows mobile, Linux, Symbian, and BREW) free development SDKs are available. Cross platform deployment of apps is still limited mostly within a specific platform due to API and OS limitations, requiring sometimes a recompile or a complete rewrite for a target platform. Deployments between iPhone and iPod, between Windows Mobile and Windows CE for Pocket PC and Palm OS are possible.
