  • 79. Issues to Consider When Developing Mobile Services
  • 80. Basic Questions
    • What value does the “mobile” aspect of the project add to the user experience with a library service or collection?
    • What incentives do users have to access this content on a mobile device, rather than via existing channels?
  • 81. Mobile User Experience
    • Designing for mobile is about more than designing for a small screen device
    • Designing an effective mobile user experience requires a greater understanding of the user context
    • Lack of prevalent models makes this work both challenging and exciting
  • 82. Native Apps vs Mobile Web Apps
    • Do you build a platform specific “native app” (e.g., iPhone App, Android App), or a mobile website that works across a range of devices?
    • What are the tradeoffs of each approach for your project?
  • 83. When to Make a Native App
    • Charging for it
    • Creating a game
    • Using specific locations*
    • Using cameras
    • Using accelerometers
    • Accessing the filesystems
    • Offline users
  • 84. The Case for Mobile Web Apps
    • “ I believe that unless your application meets one of these native application criteria, you should not create a native application, but should instead focus on building a mobile web application.”
    • — Brian Fling, “Mobile Design and Development”
  • 85. Shifting Landscape
    • Mobile technology is changing rapidly, making it difficult to plan for what’s next
    • New standards and technology are unevenly distributed across platforms
    • New interaction models emerging
      • Location-Based Services
      • Augmented Reality
  • 86. Location-Based Services Source: Mary Meeker, “Economy + Internet Trends”, Web 2.0 Summit , October 20, 2009

  • 88. Experimentation
    • If you plan to work in the mobile space, be prepared to take risks and experiment
    • Don’t overplan—be open to new ideas and opportunities
  • 89. Thanks!
