Accordingly, an agency might need to consider fea- sibility before taking on usability. Nicole Dingess, director of user experience at Navi- gationArts, said organizations need to determine what level of commitment they are willing to make when it comes to the maintenance of mobile apps and associ- ated content. For example, apps need to be updated as new versions of mobile operating systems emerge, which is all the more challenging for organizations with apps running on multiple platforms. "That is a commitment in time and budget that they have to consider," Dingess said. An agency with limited mobile expertise might be better off focusing on the familiar, at least initially. Doug Brashear, mobile practice director at NavigationArts, said that for most of his clients, a mobile website is the best place to start because website design is something they already know how to do. Science.gov opted for a mobile website strategy. The online gateway to government science information is governed by an alliance of 19 scienti c and technical organizations at 15 federal agencies. The mobile version of the site, m.science.gov, debuted in September 2011. The alliance chose a mobile website because it did not want to limit "the dissemination of the science informa- tion to a certain user group or operating system," said Valerie Allen, senior technical information specialist at the Energy Department's Of ce of Scienti c and Techni- cal Information. The of ce is one of the organizations contributing to the development and management of Science.gov. The website uses the Wireless Universal Resource File and a set of application programming interfaces to ensure accessibility across platforms and devices, Allen said. Although Brashear said a stand-alone mobile web- site is a great way to accommodate on-the-go users, the downside is that the agency ends up with separate Web products serving different users. The approach bifurcates mobile analytics and search engine optimi- zation, he added. Brashear cited responsive design as the way around the issue and a method for improving the experience for a range of users. The approach provides a single code base that displays an optimized representation of a website based on the type of device accessing it. At NCI, "responsive design is a big area we are going to be looking at," Cho said. NCI is considering how the approach might t into the next generation of the organization's Web presence.
