10 Things You Didn't Know About MobileThere is little doubt that we love our smartphones. How often do you put your mobile phone away and not think about it? Not very often? You and the rest of the world.
Morgan Stanley says that 91% of adults have their phone at hand 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. We are using smartphones and tablets to find local pizza places, the phone number for our auto mechanic, and the nearest store that has the product we want.
We are using mobile devices to connect with our friends and colleagues, track our family's schedules, pay our bills, and send and receive emails. Oh, and occasionally we talk on them!
HEROweb has posted a list of 10 surprising facts about mobile usage on our blog, as well as a new article on our website filled with facts about mobile.

New Year, New Mobile Promotion!HEROweb has declared that 2013 is the Year of the Mobile! Our office set a goal last year of being able to offer our customers high-quality mobile website development, and we met that goal with the development of MightyMerchant Mobile. Now we would like to help our customers reach their goals.
Any customers that schedule mobile website development during the month of January will receive 20% off the cost. Just let us know if you're interested, or if you would like to discuss how your business might benefit from mobile access.

Your security is a top priority at HEROweb, and we work diligently to preserve the financial integrity of your customers' data. For more information regarding PCI Compliance Best Practices, as well as our recommended payment gateways, please visit our Payment Processing page.

Welcoming New HEROweb Customers, Redesigns & Mobile Sites
Check out these great new additions to the HEROweb family!
OregonPaddleSports.com - Lane County is a great place to get in the water . . . rivers and lakes abound. Now there is an equally great website that is a resource for everything you need to follow "the path of the paddle." Oregon Paddle Sports is the place to go for rafts, canoes, kayaks, apparel, gear, classes, and even water levels in rivers.
HEROweb mobile sites are tested on a range of devices and operating systems, including Android, iOS and Windows Mobile.
BaselineEquipment.com - Baseline Equipment offers land surveying equipment and engineering supplies. Previously, Baseline Equipment used a mobile solution from another company but they weren't very happy with it. Site owner James came to us because we had our own internal mobile solution. He's incredibly happy with it, and has provided some good feedback that will help us to improve it even further.
LuminarePress.com - Luminare Press is the place to go for affordable, professional self-publishing, and now their website reflects just what a high-quality, useful service they offer. The site redesigned cleaned up the cluttered home page, and improved the layout and navigation of the product package pages.
