There are several key interactions design innovations that solve for the constraints of mobile experiences with elegance. The physics of swiping is one. What is the first interaction shown on any demo? The elegant “you can swipe it” motion. Another key area for innovation is certain app’s usage of the z-layer – pretending this stuff […]
There is a space on the mobile iOS experience that is so perfect for a button, yet that pattern is very rarely seen. Content is the new button and a prime piece of content on the mobile experience is the top header. I am glad to see that using this area to provide context and […]

Why haven’t more people scrapped their PCs for the sleeker, cheaper tablets?…
Is the mobile device doomed to be a consumption device forever? One would think if we were going to see some complex trading applications, spreadsheet managers, design tools, coding tools, or publishing/crm tools they would have emerged by now. I am trying to explore the viability of the mobile device for complex interactions before I […]
