Designing for the Tablet Designing for the Tablet Presentation Transcript

  • Designing for the tablet experience Alexis Lloyd | The New York Times | @alexislloyd image: http://ohnodoom.com/ibap/
  • first, some context
  • think about the tablet as part of an ecosystem
  • the consumption of content is more mobile and interstitial be aware of the user’s context (location, parallel experiences, etc.)
  • users expect content and services to be well-tailored to all of their devices. understand the inherent qualities of the device
  • larger screen more functionality more portable simpler interface
  • (semi)mobile Consider where your users will be. How does this affect their state of mind? tactile Enhance the sense of “touchability”, of physically manipulating on-screen media. intimate Make your interactions human, personal. Encourage emotional connection.
  • a (very brief) look at the tablet as a reading device
  • emulates some of the best qualities of print “ IT’S NO WONDER WE LOVE OUR PRINTED BOOKS we physically cradle them close to our heart. Unlike computer screens, the experience of reading on a Kindle or iPhone (or iPad, one can assume) mimics this familiar maternal embrace. And the seemingly insignificant fact that we touch the text actually plays a very key role in furthering the intimacy of the experience. - Craig Mod, “Books in the Age of the iPad”
  • but let’s be careful not to assume the constraints of print “Acknowledge the physical boundaries of the device, while also embracing the effective limitlessness of space just beyond those edges.” http://craigmod.com/journal/ipad_and_books/
  • design for context understand the emotional experience of the device create a holistic experience across devices
  • thank you
