Why Go Mobile?
One of the hot topics on the forefront of today's technology buzz is mobile compatible content. Many experts today are emphasizing the importance of web content compatibility for mobile viewers. Statistics show more and more people are choosing to connect to the web via their mobile devices. The smartphone market began outselling the desktop market at the end of 2010, and projections state that by the year 2015, web users will be connecting to the Internet more often through mobile devices than through desktop computers. But is mobile just connecting to the internet? The answer is no. Mobile is smartphones, tablets or any device that gives the user the freedom to walk away from their desktop. Companies are handing out iPads to replace notebooks, cloud computing makes it possible to synchronize files, photos and music so users can have access anywhere they go. Mobile devices are now the preferred way for users to access any information.
 
What does this mean for technical writers? Technical writers can now deliver documentation to end users nearly anywhere. They can virtually set up shop in the pockets of their customers. It is easier than ever for you to connect with end users today, but it is just as easy for your competitors to do the same. If you don't keep up with the growing trends of mobile development, your competitors gladly will, and they will take your customers’ loyalty with them.
