Lately, I have been involved in the design of a personal task manager for Apple IOS, Google Android and Microsoft WP8. Explore with me what I learned during this unique journey. Among others, discover the psychology behind the product design elements that attract users and keep them "hooked". Discover how usefulness come from what is not there, the emptiness that generates real value. These topics may seem odd, but the results are not. Less is more. Armed with this new learning, my hope is that this will significantly change how you design mobile applications.
