iPhone and iPad Web Design For Dummies
Apple’s touchscreen devices have created worldwide techno-lust, conjuring a record-breaking market out of thin air.
iPads, iPhones, and iPods are so in demand that they outsell every other device in their categories. If your website is not designed to take advantage of the extraordinary new capabilities of these popular devices, then you will miss out on an increasingly important part of your audience.
With all the focus on the App Store (thanks to the ubiquitous “There’s an App for that…” ad campaign), you could be forgiven for overlooking the fact that the single most popular app on the iPhone and iPad is Safari.
