“Mobile is a crucial part of Guardian News & Media’s digital strategy” - Janine Gibson, editor, guardian.co.uk
Mobile IQ has developed a new mobile site for guardian.co.uk which launched today with an enhanced design, faster updates and a range of new features. The new mobile site – m.guardian.co.uk – is ad-funded, free for mobile users to access on all handsets globally and affirms Guardian News & Media’s commitment to mobile.
Mobile IQ has a distinguished pedigree in helping content providers mobilise their content, having developed the BBC’s news app and mobile websites for major brands such as Channel 4, Maxim and News International - as well as niche publications such as the British Medical Journal.
Shaun Barriball, Managing Director of Mobile IQ, said: “The Guardian has a fantastic pedigree in mobile content. Together we have yet again raised the benchmark for consuming news via the mobile web. Publishers who want a successful app or website which delights their users come to Mobile IQ”.
Janine Gibson, editor, guardian.co.uk, said: “Mobile is a crucial part of Guardian News & Media’s digital strategy, and the statistics speak for themselves in terms of how important being able to access our content on the move is to our readers. The new mobile site - along with a number of other mobile products in the pipeline - demonstrates our commitment to this growing medium.”

This is more than double the number of page impressions the mobile site recorded this time last year, and means that over 5% of Guardian News & Media’s global digital page impressions come from mobile devices.
