I’m certainly happy, too for this audience having their beloved application back.
The last half year taught me a lot. It mainly taught me, that a good amount of people all across available platforms and applications simply do not know what responsive design is. Neither from the technical nor from the design approach.
It has even been declared as the “FUTURE” of web-design some lines above.
Yes, the RESPONSIVE element is the future and I guess where SP (and myself) were lagging.
Responsive has been described the first time back in 2010 (A list Apart by Ethan Marcotte), and with introduction of media queries in CSS3 in 2012 it’s available for to use. The future isn’t now (or in future), the future is 5 years old. Some could call it the past - or even standard.
I started web design at the age of 39 or 40 - nearby 10 years ago. I knew nothing!!! Even less. FreewayPro taught me, that you can walk in slow steps. But Freeway taught me as well, that those steps doesn’t necessarily need to be bigger or even faster to reach a goal. It simply taught me walking target-oriented.
The key knowledge of successful web-design is being aware, what “positioning” or placing an element (mostly a green rectangle) means - literally. Ask yourself: “What is the purpose of this element?” How shall it react if it is displayed in different conditions (smaller canvas, bigger canvas) and how shall it finally interact with other elements on the same canvas (the one below - or to the right).
Rather than searching for an “alternative” you could have had an invest in this. Or you even should. Because it is important for all applications out there.
I heartily fought pro FreewayPro and its concept of creating responsive design. But these days I think, that it isn’t flexible enough to attract people - say below 39 - giving it a go. And who will substitute all those current user once they retire?
That’s the future up to my definition - and fighting with 49 is painstaking, if not to say pointless.
