The folks over at UK digital experience company Red Ant have a nice blog post on how to design better mobile experiences. The author, Alex Sbardella, refers quite a bit to apps (he is, after all, their Mobile Products Manager), but he points out his advice applies just as well to mobile sites.
Here are his main takeaways:
- Go back to the drawing board
- Identify your users
- Remember the 80/20 rule
- Use task-based design
- Keep it simple
- Don't ignore platform UX
- Capture more than just touch input
- Design for interruption
- Remember your design isn't perfect
- Above all, follow best practice and your own experience
Of course, you’ll need to read the whole article to get the full advice.
