Whenever we talk about mobile web development tools, we automatically forget that – unlike the developers who use them day in and day out – the customer may have very little understanding of what it actually entails. To the developer this may seem to be the way things should be, but it’s actually far more likely for a customer to invest in something if they understand it.
So without further ado, here is our simple overview for newbies and nerds alike on mobile web development tools for 2015.
Most of the tools used by developers are, simply put, designed to make the transition of information from your existing website into a responsive page which works across mobile platforms. Sometimes this means handling code, others layout, and some perform cloning to save you time. Here are 3 of the most nifty bits of kit for any developer today.
