Mobile App Design Best Practices: Usable Interfaces for Tiny Places (video, slides, podcast)
With a virtual gold-rush in mobile app development, the race is on to create powerful apps but also the most compelling user experiences. Designing for a touch interface and a small profile is a unique proposition and lessons learned from web or desktop app development will go only so far.
In this recent webcast, Jeremy Anticouni of Ignite Mobile Studio and Nima Vadiee from Apigee discussed simple, yet often overlooked, design principles that all mobile app developers should consider and adhere to. They covered:
- The importance of prototyping and wire framing
- Crafting intuitive, simple, and visually appealing user interfaces
- Designing usable interfaces for tiny spaces
- Perception vs. performance within the user experience
