2. Mobile Content Design Tips The blending of a persons digital world with their real life, activities, and needs is the real mobile revolution. Its a new form of communication, adopted en masse because of its naturalness to our daily lives. Consider the following guidelines when you design for mobile devices: Design for multiple screens: Identify the devices that you will support. Understand the capabilities of each device. Create a default reference design for the devices. Define rules for content and design adaptation. Incorporate web standards and a flexible layout. Consider what makes mobile devices unique: Explore how touch targets, gestures, and actions can be used for interactivity. Learn how to leverage the device hardware and software capabilities, such as geo-location, sensors, camera functions, and messaging. Simplify your user interface to accommodate the smaller screens. Dont count on traditional interface elements, such as button states that change on mouse-over. Consider whether your experience has to support both portrait and landscape orientation.

Remember that most people use smaller devices one- handed and tablets with both hands. Always prototype: Iterate often, and take advantage of user feedback to improve more quickly. By developing a more agile process, your concepts will adapt to what users really need and want. Without prototyping, you may have limited insight into the effectiveness of your design. Over the next 5-10 years, more people will turn to typing on glass than on a physical keyboard. Brandon Carson Unless otherwise noted, all contents 2014 Entirenet 4. IS YOUR STAFF MOBILE- READY?
