For, example you probably are now reading this article on your smart phone, gotcha!! Consumers love to browse products even in their spare time - I know I do! And every time consumers want to search products, they prefer to do it from their mobile phones, which offers more convenience.

Today, every successful business maintains a mobile responsive website, and Drupal has been the building block for many mobile-friendly websites. The main reason why developers have been using Drupal for developing mobile-friendly websites is its compatibility with smart devices such as Android, iPad, iPhone and Blackberry.
