Slides from my class on October 1st 2012 at General Assembly London about designing for multiple devices.

ABSTRACT
The rise in mobiles and tablets have changed the way we consume and interact with content, but also the way we design and what we base our design approach on. This class will teach you about the shift in user expectations, behaviour- and consumption patterns and what that means for designing products that will be used on multiple devices. Coming out of it you'll be equipped with guiding principles and tools to tackle the multiple device jungle.

    • 1. FIRST UP... DEVICE USAGE & PATTERNSwww.flickr.com/photos/publicenergy/1846375599
    • DEVICE: a thing defined for a specific purpose or task & which can connect to the internethttp://desktopwallpaper-s.com/19-Computers/-/Future/

    • USAGE PATTERNS ACROSS DEVICES “...as devices become more mobile, it’s not only changing where we read, but when. ” - POCKET (formerly Read it Later)www.flickr.com/photos/brandoncwarren/4236278556

    • “MOBILE USERS ARE RUSHED & ON THE GO” THIS IS A MYTHwww.flickr.com/photos/theirmind/5001267661/
    • A LARGE PROPORTION OF USAGE HAPPENS WHEN WE HAVE TIME TO KILL COMMUTING, WAITING BUT ALSO AT HOMEwww.flickr.com/photos/keinepanik/1091263261/
    • THE SAME TASKS ARE CARRIED OUT ON SMARTPHONES AS ON DESKTOPS AS DEVICES & EXPERIENCE BECOME MORE OPTIMISED USAGE & TASK EXECUTION IS INCREASINGwww.flickr.com/photos/edduddiee/4307943164

    • 2. THIS HAS... IMPLICATIONS FOR UX & DESIGNhttp://www.flickr.com/photos/eyesore9/3206408088/
    • LIMITED DEVICE CAPABILITIES USED TO MEAN LIMITED TASKS E.G. FOCUS ON SEARCH | OPENING HOURS | REVIEWS | MENUwww.flickr.com/photos/frantaylor/4296536332
    • RESULTED IN MOBILE SPECIFIC WEBSITES LESS CONTENT & LINKS BACK TO THE FULL DESKTOP VERSION DESKTOP FULL WEBSITE BESPOKE CUT DOWN WEBSITE BESPOKE CUT DOWN WEBSITEhttp://desktopwallpaper-s.com/19-Computers/-/Future/
    • PEOPLE ARE CLICKING THE ‘FULL DESKTOP VERSION’ LINK THERE IS A REASON FOR THATwww.flickr.com/photos/demandaj/7287174776
    • AN EQUAL & CONTINUOS EXPERIENCE ACROSS DEVICES THIS DEMAND WILL ONLY GROW STRONGERwww.flickr.com/photos/joachim_s_mueller/7110473339
    • 3. A CLOSER LOOK AT... BESPOKE MOBILE SITES vs. RESPONSIVE SITES vs. APPShttp://www.flickr.com/photos/young_einstein/74097753/
    • PRIMARY REASONS FOR A BESPOKE MOBILE SITE • REQUIRED FOR THE AUDIENCE • TECHNICAL LIMITATIONS TO CMSwww.flickr.com/photos/st3f4n/3476036180
    • BEST AVOIDED IF WE CAN IT CAN CAUSE ALL SORTS OF PROBLEMShttp://www.flickr.com/photos/edenandjosh/2892956576/
    • BUT WHY? ” Todays popular devices are not tomorrows so building something which works on any device is better than building something which works on todays devices “ - COMBINED WISE WORDS FROM @ONEXTRAPIXEL & @TRENTWALTONwww.flickr.com/photos/lastquest/1472794031
    • THE ALTERNATIVE IS MESSY & COSTLY MAINTAINING DIFFERENT VERSIONS USERS HAVING PROBLEMS FINDING WHAT THEY ARE AFTER (E.G. IN SEARCH)www.flickr.com/photos/ericconstantineau/5618576278
    • CORE CONTENT SHOULD REMAIN THE SAME BUT THE EXPERIENCE SHOULD BE OPTIMISED BOTH IN DISPLAY OF CONTENT & REGARDING USING DEVICE CAPABILITIESwww.flickr.com/photos/jmtimages/2883279193
    • MOBILE PRESENCE vs. APP? USE ANALYTICS FOR GUIDANCE MOSTLY DIRECT TRAFFIC POSSIBLE ARGUMENT FOR APP MOSTLY VIA SHARED LINKS MOBILE WEB PRESENCE NEEDED. AN APP ALONE WON’T CUT IT A BIT OF BOTH THEN CONSIDER....www.flickr.com/photos/andwhynot/2946734025

    • DIFFERENTTYPES OF APPSTHE MAIN TWO TYPESNATIVE APPS (e.g. Instagram)• MOST OPTIMISED USER EXPERIENCE• ACCESS TO DEVICE CAPABILITIES & APIs• BUT REQUIRES PLATFORM SPECIFIC CODE BASEHYBRID (e.g. Facebook)• USE OF HTML5 & JAVASRIPT• WRAPPER TO PROVIDE NATIVE CAPABILITIES• FEWER “VERSIONS” TO MAINTAIN• BUT CAN BE TIME CONSUMING TO CREATE APP LIKE INTERACTIONS• CANT JUST BE WRAPPED. MUST HAVE APP LIKE FUNCTIONALITIES
    • ” Money spent developing a pretty but limitediPhone app only benefits...the few, but moneyspent on the website UI would have benefittedeveryone “- Gary Marshall on ‘The app trap’ in .net Magaizinewww.flickr.com/photos/cristiano_betta/2909483129
    • 4. THERE IS SOMETHING CALLED... RESPONSIVE DESIGNhttp://www.flickr.com/photos/paperpariah/4301471586/
    • “ Design & development should respond to the user’s behaviour & environment based on screen size, platform & orientation. [It’s]...a mix of flexible grids & layouts, images & an intelligent use of media queries. ” - SMASHING MAGAZINEwww.flickr.com/photos/adactio/5818096043

    • DEVICE USAGE & PATTERNS FUTURE DEVICES The number of different devices will only grow & we don’t know what’s coming. USED EVERYWHERE & ANYWHERE And we’re not only using them on the go but increasingly when we have some downtime including the sofa. OUR USE OF MOBILE DEVICES Our use of mobile devices iswww.flickr.com/photos/thecaucas/2597813380 increasingly replicating that of desktop.
    • IMPLICATIONS FOR UX & DESIGN THINKING AN EQUAL & CONTINUOUS EXPERIENCE ACROSS DEVICES As they & the services we use become more sophisticated & optimised we expect more from them. KEEP THE CORE BUT OPTIMISE Consider the limitations but also the opportunities with mobile devices.www.flickr.com/photos/thecaucas/2597813380
    • WHEN DO WHAT BESPOKE MOBILE WEBSITE Try to avoid it but do it if necessary RESPONSIVE & ADAPTIVE DESIGN The most device & future adaptive approach right now. Use if possible. But challenge content delivery. APP Use if you require offline reading/ functionality & access to device capabilities. Base which type on objectives & stats.www.flickr.com/photos/thecaucas/2597813380
    • FOR RESPONSIVE DEFINE YOUR GRID & BREAKPOINTS This is the backbone of responsive design & content choreography. DON’T FORGET THE NAVIGATION Consider the pros & cons of different methods. TEST & COLLABORATE This is new grounds & we’re all learning so work together & test aswww.flickr.com/photos/thecaucas/2597813380 you go.
    • FOR APPS REMEMBER PLATFORM SPECIFIC GUIDELINES Adhering to them will make your app easier to use. CONSIDER BACKWARDS COMPATIBILITY Not everyone will be on the latest version. Ensure you cater for the majority. CONSULT THE INTERNET There are a number of great resources for knowledge & inspiration. Use them.www.flickr.com/photos/thecaucas/2597813380
    • 8. BEFORE I GO... REMEMBER THATBEFORE I GO REMEMBER THAT...• DESIGNING FOR MULTIPLE DEVICES IS NOT JUST ABOUT THE SMALLER SCREENS • IT’S ALSO ABOUT THE LARGER ONES • & IT’S ABOUT THINKING AHEAD • & ABOUT BEING CLEVER IN WHAT WE DOwww.flickr.com/photos/publicenergy/1846375599
    • ...IT’S NOT JUST ABOUT THE SMALLER SCREENS BUT ALSO THE BIG ONESwww.flickr.com/photos/jolives/2889944573/

    • BUT ABOVE ALL... “ We’re not just making pretty interfaces. We’re actually in the process of making an environment where we’ll spend most of our time, for the rest of our lives. We’re the designers.We’re the builders. What do we want that environment to feel like? What do we want to feel like. ” - Wilson Minorhttp://www.flickr.com/photos/funch/4679422945/
