  • 11. Lessons Learned Mobile UI Design
  • 12. Mobile UI Design: Figure out what matters • What’s the “soul” of the app? • Find the true use for the application and what sets it apart from other applications • Mobile does not mean shrinking your website or app down, it degrades the experience • Can it be a web app?
  • 13. Mobile UI Design: What’s the use case? • How is this app going to be used? • Primary touch point? • Companion application? • Optimized UI for a larger app? • A lot of what's done with a mobile app informs the mobile or web app Image via mindingthegaps.com
  • 14. Mobile UI Design: Device knowledge • Device prototypes • Made a wooden iPad to test before device was available • Go to Best Buy and play around with the phones, cameras, TVs, etc. They're a great device lab.
  • 15. Mobile UI Design: Appearance • “Small things” like app icons can make a difference • Metaphors can work • Design can win over features • Maintain focussed views • Don’t overwhelm* • Remember how people interact with devices: fingers • Long processes can be smoothed over with delightful interactions
  • 16. Mobile UI Design: Design jump starts • Use the native UI • Read the HIG and design guidelines • Follow established conventions • Don't follow established conventions Image via metaspark.com
  • 17. Mobile UI Design: Help designers see • Get designers as close to the real thing as you can • Get them set up with the dev environment • Test and run on the simulators • Even better, get them loading on to a device • Show them what it means to implement their designs • Even let them add assets and commit :-O ?!??!

  • 18. Mobile UI Design: Help clients see • Testing your design • Create a simple HTML website with hotspots and send the URL to a client • Email images to a client that they can load in their phone • Great way to show clients what their (and your) decisions mean Image via testiphone.com
  • 19. Mobile UI Design: Test, test, test • Test interactions • Gestures • UI overload/fatigue • Performance
  • 20. Any questions?
