True, and that’s my biggest pain point with Web 2.0, the lack of responsiveness / adaptive design. Ensuring that a Web App is somehow behaving like a Desktop app is understandable ( and (!) requested by so many users, actually isn’t that the big complaint that Web2 is not as pixel-accurate as Web?) but I don’t think this is what is needed in the (near) future.
Below the accesses to xojodocs.com from last month. Interesting, as more or less “useless” on mobile …
I assume the 55% percent are “Xojo devs”, the rest are people who popped up randomly, by mistake, or by searching for it. If the page doesn’t display right on their mobile device they will likely conclude that it is the wrong tool for them .
On the other hand, it is a difficult call. If you have a very large Listbox for instance, it is not enough to have responsive or adaptive design possibilities but you probably need to re-design your app for smaller screens, something - in all fairness to Xojo - can already be achieved today to a certain extent.
