After a redesign in 2013, mobile traffic increased by 51 percent and tablet users increased by 68 percent in 2014. The redesign optimized TN.gov for a range of screen sizes – from monitors to tablets to phones – to provide easy reading and navigation with a minimum of resizing, panning, and scrolling.
In addition to the redesign, Tennessee state agencies released eight applications that were either mobile apps, or Web applications specifically designed for small screens. The Web applications were created using a responsive design, which adapts to the viewers’ various device widths and screen resolutions, providing better usability and viewing capabilities.
The TN.gov website and eight applications were developed by NIC, Inc., Tennessee’s eGovernment partner since 2000.
