Welcome mobile developers & designers! You have come to the right place! :)
In this group, we are focused on starting conversations with design-minded-developers & development-minded-designers on how to create more engaging user experiences. Understanding a user’s “context” is becoming critical to delivering “engaging experiences.” As mobile developers, we know this UX is increasingly derived from a combination of:
• Sensor data from smartphone
• Data stored on the smartphone
• Multitude of web services in the cloud
Developers & Designers need to harness this new level of contextual awareness to create “right time experiences.”
Understanding a user’s basic context i.e. who are you? where are you? what are you doing? who are you doing it with?....is incredibly powerful. But there is so much more…….are you happy, sad, late, walking, running, driving, hot, cold, near or far from something? ……and this is just a start especially when you consider a smartphone has, on average, 7-10 sensors incorporated into the hardware and OS. Grappling with all of this can be difficult, where does a developer or designer start?
This group will focus on how we can incorporate more “contextual awareness” into our mobile applications to deliver convenient, smart, and delightful experiences. We hope this group will inspire and empower developers & designers to achieve the next level of innovation in delivering mobile user experiences.
