Time to Level Up?
As we plug in to vast amounts of data and build web apps on deadline - important web apps that enable others to do their jobs - it's tempting (and sometimes necessary) to let the design part slip a bit. 

Here's a google search to help you find some sites to add to your bookmarks if you're inclined to level up your skills. A listicle of best web development blogs is down below in "intelligence" if you prefer that angle. There's lots of usability advice to be found there, too.

To better design for any screen size you can imagine, read on for a helpful article on chrome device simulation we found.

And of course, to help you leverage CM WebClient in your web application efforts, browse our tutorial articles below and on the CM First site.
Heads Up
How to Simulate Mobile Devices with Device Mode in Chrome
The explosion of devices capable of running our web apps has turned into something like a "Big Bang", with the number of screens forever expanding towards the outer reaches of the universe. To say that app development has gotten more complicated in the process is a wild understatement.

SitePoint has a great resource that can help us in their recent article "How to Simulate Mobile Devices with Device Mode in Chrome".

Create An Outlook-Style Events Calendar

Calendar views are a must-have for many web-based applications. Normally, coding them into your app becomes a real challenge when your users are on the go and have a need for mobile-based viewing.

Create Rich Tooltips and Popups

In many Plex applications, basic screens show only “need to know” information, with a link to more detail. With CM WebClient, create handy tooltips that provide a better user experience.

Knowing When Enough is Enough in Mobile Design

As programmers have learned since the beginning of coding, it can be difficult to feel your program is ‘done.’ There’s always more tweaking you can do, but are you really making it better?

Better Display of Static Content

Content sourced from a database table can be concise but confusing and less than helpful.
