Mobile Web Recommendations

static sites

For static website formatting, Web Services recommends Twitter Bootstrap.

For internal websites, Web Services sometimes relies exclusively on Bootstrap, without writing any additional CSS. This allows Web Services to create beautiful and intuitive interfaces at a fraction of time it used to. For custom, public-facing sites, Twitter Bootstrap helps save time on development with responsive grids, tables, forms, and other useful components.

If you implement a site with sites.uchicago.edu, it will automatically format for mobile display.

applications

For mobile applications, front runners include JQuery Mobile and Sencha Touch.  JQuery mobile provides a quick and easy way to equip your web applications with touch gestures.  Sencha Touch provides a robust and sophisticated framework and requires some familiarity with object oriented programming.
