Mobile UX Design

As the growth of mobile devices explodes, more people are accessing the web, using web apps, and installing native apps on the devices never more than three feet away and which are always on. This ubiquity has lead to experience design challenges, because people expect the same (or similar) experiences across all devices, regardless of the screen size, input methods, and bandwidth access. Designing for mobile UX has forced us to think about content, context, and community in new ways. We need to design for limited attention, lower content density, immediacy, and emotion. In this talk we'll discuss some of the key issues faced by mobile UX designers and explore some of the emerging best practices.

    Excellent presentation. Dave provided infographics about the state of mobile usage that is relevant right now that shape the design decisions for mobile that developers need to be made aware. Focus is to design for the user first; developers are not the users.

    Great presentation. David provided some good reminders about what to keep in mind about designing mobile UI's. And, he was great to talk with after the meetup. Thanks to Sid and BAM for having David present!

    I've been doing Mobile UX design for a long, long time (about 12 years), so it is really great to listen to someone who can push me into thinking more freely about the topics involved. Excellent talk and presentation!! I will gladly listen to Dave speak again. Thanks SO much for the top-notch program.

    well done presentation. I always seem to want something deeper, though ;-). It taught me about what to keep in mind, but really nothing specific about *how* to design things. More examples would have been nice, something to get the juices flowing. Less gee-whiz stats.

    The talk was interesting but too long. It could be tightened up and be even more effective.

    Good group of people to network with. Some good stats in the beginning of the presentation and some good reminders. Don't think I learned anything new, but did get reminded of a few things that I often forget. Overall, I was pleased.

    I cannot post the slides just yet, as I am awaiting permission for a few of the images, but as soon as I am able to post them, I'll provide a link.

    Happy designing!
