HTML5 Web-development Platform Wix Offers Solution that Allows Users to
HTML5 web-development platform Wix is offering a new solution that allows users to "perfect their websites for smartphones". The company, which has headquarters in Tel Aviv, Israel and offices in San Francisco, New York and Dnepropetrovsk, offers its 38 million customers a platform that "automatically converts all of a website’s design, content, integrated Apps and ecommerce capabilities into a mobile optimized version".

Once websites are converted, owners can alter their new mobile optimized websites using Wix's WYSIWYG mobile editor. The editor allows users to "change design, hide content, scale and move features" while the desktop versions of their websites remain unchanged.

The solution allows users to tap into what is a growing market of users who access websites through mobile devices like smartphones. Figures in the United States suggest 56% of adults own a smartphone while around 25% of mobile users have purchased items online through their smartphones.

Wix applies a range of industry practices including SEO-friendly single URL structures, single source code, and a "single source of content". The solution ensures that when website owners update the desktop versions of their websites, the mobile versions are also automatically updated.

“There are many responsive design solutions out there that work in blocks, scaling and rearranging components based on screen size," explained the co-founder and CEO of Wix, Avishai Abrahami. "Wix, however, is built on flexible layers so we set out to create an infinitely flexible and customizable mobile offering to match and augment the Wix platform,” said. Our goal has always been to put the power of the web into the hands of our users by providing tools to create and manage a professional and comprehensive online presence. The new mobile solution is the latest addition to the Wix suite, allowing SMBs, entrepreneurs and creative professionals to compete effectively however the market evolves.”
