You already have a good mobile web audience; why not tell them about your app with an interstitial before they hit your website?

Mobile Web Review: monster.co.uk - Godzilla Or The ToothFairy?
Last month the UK's largest job search engine Monster launched a new mobile version of their well-known website. Upon visiting the standard desktop site it will detect mobile devices and direct them to the appropriate mobile page. The site utilises a .m prefix to enable mobile specific content. This week I take a look at the online recruitment industries newest mobile offspring, does it growl like a dragon or squeak like a goblin…

Mobile Web Review: london-luton.co.uk - Are Airports becoming more mobile than Airplanes?

51Degrees.mobi introduces simple mobile device detection for PHP developers
51Degrees.mobi, the leading provider of device detection and web optimisation solutions, has expanded its portfolio to include PHP. The PHP scripting language is powerful and flexible, making it a popular choice for web site developers. Around a third of all websites currently use PHP.
This means even more developers and site owners can now discover whether the visiting device is a tablet, whether it's a smart phone, what the screen size is – and they can then adjust the online content accordingly.

There's no sign of a cloud when we talk about mobile device detection
The weather outside may be a typically damp British April - but here at 51Degrees.mobi there's not a cloud in the sky. We've developed a mobile device detection solution that doesn't rely on a ‘cloud' connection every time there's a new visitor to your mobile web site.
As far as we're concerned, cloud services are very well-suited to location-based services and other applications that require vast quantities of data. They're also often a practical solution when information needs to be shared but needs to be controlled or monitored as well.
However, mobile device detection is a completely different type of situation.

The latest organisation to produce figures that prove what we've known for a long time is UK-based search marketing agency Mediarun. It's found that ‘bounce rates' from mobile devices are around 40%, which is about 10% higher than on desktop browsers. The company says this means 5.6% of all mobile traffic is being lost by online retailers... and that's a significant amount of lost sales.
