Mobile Monday Ann Arbor
A great user interface is essential to acceptance and adoption of any system. While the rules of great design still apply, the small touch screen adds new constraints that don’t exist on other platforms. During this session, we’ll explore some of the key design principles and how they apply in this environment. Whether it be color, size, shape, visual cues, icons, metaphors, real-world equivalents, the user has expectations about how an app will work. We’ll also discuss not only how to meet these expectations, but also exceed and even delight the user with design.
