    Creating phone apps for making webpages friendly for phones?

    Pretty clueless regarding the whole thing, so I must apologise.

    Looking into making my website friendly for phones, for example when browsing on my android I may go to a site that recommends me to download an app that makes the site easily viewable from a handheld phone.

    Other than that, some webpages automatically detect the device being used and modify the webpage appropriately (so the page does not need sidescrolling and the buttons are larger and easy to read).

    Any information regarding how to start going about this or general information would be greatly appreciated.

    You could make a seprate subdomain like m.mydomain.com or set up a seprate folder for mobiles to be directed to which has a mobile version of your site or you could have a look at responsive web design and start something from that

    Try looking here: http://www.w3schools.com/css/css_mediatypes.asp

    You can position/arrange things using CSS without having to rewrite your page at all.
