Call or text from a mobile device using very simple markup

At my latest presentation (at upNorth web conferce in Greece), people were impressed with some very trivial markup that can add many points to your mobile site (and not only) with minimum effort. With the below very easy to implement markup you can make your site interact with the device in order to make phone calls and/or send sms (I only tested it with iPhone but I believe its working on other devices as well)!

See the Pen Call or text from a mobile device using very simple markup by John Tsevdos (@tsevdos) on CodePen

The above enhancements, together with a custom iOS home screen icon/image, are probably the easiest markup implementations that give to your mobile site/app many more extra points! If you’ve tested the above example with other devices (android, windows, blackberry, etc.) please confirm that it’s working (just leave a comment)…

  1. I’m really enjoying the theme/design of your website. Do you ever run into any browser compatibility problems? A number of my blog audience have complained about my website not working correctly in Explorer but looks great in Chrome. Do you have any solutions to help fix this issue?

  2. Hello there! Do you use Twitter? I’d like to follow you if that would be okay. I’m absolutely enjoying
    your blog and look forward to new updates.
