Immersion - Differentiating your App through UX Touch Design Best Practices (12:30pm - 1:45pm)
In the ocean of apps in the marketplace, how do you differentiate yours? Cool graphics and sound are no longer enough. People experience their environment through their five senses. Touch is the most overlooked of the mobile user experience (UX) senses and yet the most personal and emotive. With more touch interactive interfaces, touch design (haptic feedback) becomes one of the most important aspects of the UX. Learn how touch design enhances the UX while helping to get your app noticed for increased revenue possibilities with handset manufacturers and carriers. This session will highlight methods to maximize the UX through touch design best practices from simple UI to more complex use case scenarios of gaming, navigation, social networking and more. A PowerPoint presentation and hands-on hardware demonstration of good touch design will be provided for attendees.
Presenters: Suzanne Nguyen, Bob Heubel
Mozilla (12:30pm - 1:45pm)
Join Mozilla developer evangelists Chris Heilmann (@codepo8) and Joe Stagner (@misfitgeek) for a hands-on session on HTML5 app development. Even if you're focused on mobile apps, learn why it makes sense to develop first for the open Web. You'll love the Web standards and friendly technology stack. Plus, a cross-platform distribution strategy is good for your budget. We'll show how painless it is to develop cross-platform, cross-browser apps on the Mozilla Labs Apps Project and access a global audience of hundreds of millions of Firefox users. Bring your laptop and your questions. It will be awesome!
