Session Presented at 1st IndicThreads.com Conference On Mobile Application Development held on 19-20 November 2010 in Pune, India
Speaker: Navin Kabra
With the advent of the iPhone and Android, more and more mobile with touch screens are hitting the market. In spite of superficial similarities, designing an app for a touch based interface is very different from designing an app for a keypad/keyboard/stylus/mouse based interface. Just porting an older app to the touch with minimal design changes is a recipe for disaster.
This talk will cover:
1. Why touch is so important?
2. Which old techniques don’t work well ?
3. Which new techniques can be used ?
4. Common mistakes to watch out for
