Mobile Apps Workshop – December 2010
Last week i had the privilege of addressing a Mobile Apps Workshop at Inventorium in the Centre for Advance Software Technology (CAST) Bangor, North Wales. The brief for the presentation from Inventorium was as follows –
“Mobile application interfaces offer unique challenges when designing for the user experience. Limited screen size, navigation restrictions and broad audience experience levels pose hurdles that, if not carefully considered, can derail even the most valuable applications. With developers and carriers racing to offer customers the ability to do just about everything on their mobile phones, observing some basic usability guidelines smooth the path for both application designers and end users.
The presentation that I delivered covered intially the following areas.
1. The App Marketplace and Revenue models
2. App Store marketing
3. Design Tips to Make Your App Marketable
4. Creating a Buzz and Case studies
