With the advent of the iPhone and Android, more and more mobile with touch screens are hitting the market. In spite of superficial similarities, designing an app for a touch based interface is very different from designing an app for a keypad/keyboard/stylus/mouse based interface. Just porting an older app to the touch with minimal design changes is a recipe for disaster.
This talk will cover:
1. Why touch is so important?
2. Which old techniques don’t work well ?
3. Which new techniques can be used ?
4. Common mistakes to watch out for
This session on “Understanding the Touch Interface” will be presented at the 1st IndicThreads.com Conference On Mobile Application Development to be held in Pune, India on 19,20 November 2010.Click here for a list of other Sessions @ The Conference
