    Hi,

    Nice article, you missed 1 point though. In addition to ensuring you site is user friendly, mobile friendly (don’t let people key in that lengthy URL), we SHOULD also make sites Mobile Intelligent. What i mean by that is the sites contents should be rendered in the mobile browser format so that its easy to the eyes. I have seen many QR code integration which takes you to websites but you can’t see anything in there till you have zoomed in few times.
