Or how disgusted might you have been when the images and content get disrupted when you visit a website from your mobile! In these tech savvy times with the advent of smartphones and tabs customers have gotten accustomed to ease of access; from pizzas to padlocks, they want everything at their fingertips – at a swipe or tap of their fingers.
