Responsive frontend frameworks such as Bootstrap and Zurb Foundation are each designed around a grid system - content on your website is laid out in blocks (or cells) consisting of rows and columns. Depending on the screen size of the device the user is viewing your website on, the rows and columns automatically rearrange to fit on the screen, like magic!
The main difference between Bootstrap and Zurb Foundation is that Bootstrap uses absolute sizes (pixels) to define its element sizes, whereas Foundation uses percentages. They have different plugins (modules) too so it is worth checking which framework better suits your needs. Foundation also has responsive email templates.
Bootstrap and Foundation each come with a whole set of modules or plugins which can readily be used to make the user experience (UX) of your website fantastic. Things such as tabbed navigation, modal popups and slide-shows, advanced nested menus, user input validation and so forth are all standard in many frontend frameworks now. This means you don’t need to reinvent the wheel for commonly used UX elements and can save a tonne of time and money.
A responsive website is still a website - it can be viewed on any browser, including mobile phone browsers. A mobile app on the other hand, is designed exclusively for mobile or tablet devices and involves considerably more work and expertise (and therefore cost). Mobile apps also need to be built for a specific operating system: Either Android or iOS (Apple). Therefore mobile apps require a different (but related) skillset. A good place to start your web app is to first create a responsive website - which users can use on their mobile phones too - and then later if the need arises create a mobile app as your user base (and requirements) grow.
Responsive design is now very standard among web developers, but there is still a vast difference between developers that understand and are proficient at doing frontend responsive design and those that are not (but claim to be!). Finding the right frontend Bootstrap or Foundation developer is crucial in ensuring that your website has the best navigation and responsive design, and will be important in ensuring that your website ranks well in the search engines (who penalize sites that are not responsive).
Get your website looking slick and perform well in search engine results pages by selecting a Bootstrap or Foundation developer to make your site stand out from the rest. Your users will benefit from a greatly increased navigation and viewing experience, which in turns drives engagement - the key to online success!
