The New iPad recently launched and we wanted to take this opportunity to explain how we optimize websites for iPad! We’ve had iPads in our web designs since the office got its first iPad two years ago.

What will an iPad-optimized website do for your business?

It will get you in front of a large market.

Apple sold more iPads in the last quarter of 2011 — 15.4 million — than it did in the entire year of 2010. As of the end of 2011, Apple has sold an industry changing 55 million iPads so far – so what does your website look like on an iPad?

Here is an example of a website Uhuru recently launched, Nancercize, optimized for iPads and iPhones:

iPad Normal

iPad Wide

How does it work?

The first thing we do is lock the layout’s resolution to a 1:1 ratio so that each pixel exactly lines up with the pixels in the iPad’s screen.

Locking the layout to a 1:1 ratio will prevent the zooming-in and out that normally occurs when the iPad is rotated.

The time to make your website iPad enhanced and ready for this tablet revolution is now. We’d love to help you! Contact Uhuru today!

Remote Work: Committing 100% to a Remote Team
