A common user experience issue with websites being viewed on a mobile device is the unwanted sideways scroll resulting from content not being resized or scaled down to the viewport size of the mobile device.
How Does Oversized Content Affect User Experience?
Content that displays off the screen extends all the visible content making a horizontal scroll necessary for users to view visual and text content. As mobile devices are designed primarily for vertical scrolling and interaction, this often leads to a negative user experience.
With Google’s mobile first index being rolled out across the internet, it is now essential that mobile usability be a priority for all websites. Fixing oversized content is just the first step to be done in conjunction with optimising viewport settings, font sizes and touch screen interactions.
