    • What kind of mobile presence should you consider implementing?
    • The Mobile User Experience Is Miserable “The phrase ‘mobile usability’ is pretty much an oxymoron. It's neither easy nor pleasant to use the Web on mobile devices. Observing user suffering during our sessions reminded us of the very first usability studies we did with traditional websites in 1994. It was that bad. In our mobile studies, the average success rate was 59% which is admittedly higher than success rates in the 1990s, but substantially lower than the roughly 80% success rate when testing websites on a regular PC today. “Before the study, we had expected to get better results in London because the UK has a stronger tradition for mobile services than the US. However, the actual sessions didn't bear this out: the British sites were just as bad as the American sites, and users struggled about as much to get things done.” Source: Nielsen Norman Group Report: Usability of Mobile Websites: July 20, 2009
    • There are no mouse rollovers on touch screen phones.
    • Regular website on a mobile device Mobile formatted site
    • Will people really be visiting my site on a mobile device?
    • People aren’t using mobile devices for searching as much* http://bit.ly/bMCmic
    • CONSIDERATIONS FOR A MOBILE SITE • What is the most essential content I should offer? • What has the most utility? • What could be practical for a person on-the-go? • What additional services could I offer? (and should I?) • Remember: Less is more.
    • What parts of my site should I put in a mobile application?
    • 1. Always include a link to get back to the standard desktop page. 2. If you use auto-detection for mobile sites, make sure links to inside pages redirect to the mobile version of those inside pages. Example: http://www.universityofcalifornia.edu/news/article/ 24143 Should redirect to: http://m.universityofcalifornia.edu/news/article/24143
    • Mobile Apps vs. Mobile Websites
    • App from the appstore Mobile formatted site
    • MOBILE WEBSITE BUILDING AN APP No need to download an app. User must download the app first. Internet required Offline mode (in most cases) Not as marketable. Bragging rights. Limited functionality. APIs (event notifications, etc.) In most cases, cheaper. Usually more expensive.
    • COST FOR MOBILE APPS Very basic template app: $1,000 Basic iPhone apps ~ $10,000 Mid-range apps (simple games, utilities) ~ $10,000 - $50,000 Complex apps (advanced games, photo, AR) ~ $100,000
    • Smartphone U.S. Market Share Total apps downloaded RIM (Blackberry) 4% Palm Palm Google 1% Microsoft 5% 18% 14% RIM (Blackberry) Google 42% 12% Apple Apple 26% 78% Source: comScore MobiLens : Top Smartphone Platforms 3 Month Avg.
