How did we squeeze a feature-rich desktop program into a lightweight mobile app?
In our case study we talk about redesigning desktop features for a mobile OS:
- The process we used to choose the essential tasks to support in our app
- How those tasks influenced which UI elements of the existing desktop program the app needed
- How we found ways to reduce the drawbacks of mobile devices
We also discuss the additional challenge we had: our app does computations in the cloud. We cover the UI feedback we provided to mimic the snappy performance of local apps. We include how we made dropped connections invisible to our users.
You could use our process for any desktop program that you’re moving to a mobile app.
