In the past 3 months over 13% of visits to our website were from a mobile smart phone
Most of these visits were from iPhones. The previous 3 months was 9% of visits so we can see the trend is significantly increasing.
So when we recently re-launched our new website (1 August 2013) at www.easykey.com we paid particular attention in making it even more mobile friendly.

The navigation menu is accessed via the Menu button top left, although many visitors will probably just tap the navigation icons in the middle of the screen.
This all sits in a semi-transparent section that fixes to the top when scrolling.
The visitor can easily access the Menu, Search and tap-to-call Phone number on every page.

Our iPhone and iPad customers have already enjoyed the great benefits of our cloud Xmail for some years now.
Put into plain English, this is great news for users of the new BlackBerry 10 as our Xmail service will be compatible synchronising Emails, Email folders, Contacts, Calendar and Tasks.
