Mobile connections are the new window to the online world, but not every website creator has done what they can to optimise their site for your roaming viewing. That is where Mobile Leap can help.
The site acts as a portal to all other sites on the web, stripping them out and reformatting them so that you can easily view pages on your handheld device.
Go to Settings when you first launch it to set the dimensions of your screen and how you want the information displayed. This enables you to include as much or as little detail as you think your mobile can take.
As well as having the images re-sized to more mobile-friendly dimensions you can also chose to run text only.
This and having all the ads and excess html stripped out will really help with loading times, especially if you are running a sketchy connection.
This site provides mobile services, including a useful application to see how a website you designed yourself will look on a handset.
Click the link on the homepage to view your site on a mobile phone, then just enter the URL and wait for the image to load. But do shop around for prices on similar applications as the market is changing all the time.
You can even interact with the site, log in and see how it will operate. The available interfaces are limited, but it will give you at least a working impression of the end result.
There is also a nice little tool to help you build a website with little or no technical knowledge.
