  14. 14. Key Insights from 7 years of Mobile  Mobilize don’t miniaturize  Just porting desktop experiencing to mobile won’t meet customer expectations. Rethink the experience for mobile.  Remember context  Mobile can be “on the go” or “on the couch”. Design for both.  Your competition is different  Customers compare you to other experiences that they have on their phone, not necessarily your competitors.  Customers tasks don’t change  Mobile provides new ways to help customers, but doesn’t change their fundamental needs. 14
