4. Huge Image Carousels

There are two main reasons why large image carousels are a pain to implement on mobile: performance and navigation.

But if you overcome both of these challenges, you can create a very native-feeling image browsing experience to really take advantage of all those wonderful high DPI screens out there.

Challenge #1: Performance

The first challenge is a performance one: devices are not usually powerful enough to render many objects in a row.

Imagine an image that is as big as a device’s screen (or twice as big if it’s a Retina device). Now, since it’s an image carousel, imagine a few dozen or even hundreds of those kind of images next to each other in a row. How wide will it be?

On Style.com, one particular image carousel came in at more than 80,000px wide. Yikes.

Most mobile browsers crash just trying to render that many elements on page — even if they are just empty placeholders with no media content.

To get around this, Style.com has optimized image carousels so that inactive slides take no space on the page. Using the DOM rewriting properties of Mobify.js, images are requested on-demand only, and thus the amount of CPU resources required for their rendering is significantly lower.

In some cases this made the mobile gallery up to 10x smaller (from 6.2MB down to 650kB on one page).

Responsive design has been the darling of web design for a few years now, although it’s really come to a peak in 2013. It’s no wonder, of course.

However, the one area where responsive fails is speed. Without optimization, a responsive site will deliver all HTTP requests for a full desktop site, even when they are hidden. This, of course, slows a mobile or tablet site considerably.
