Title: Building mobile experiences
Author: Bentley, Frank
Call number: QA76.59.B477
Availability: Click here

Synopsis:
This book presents an approach to designing mobile media that takes advantage of the Internet-connected, context-aware, and media-sharing capabilities of mobile devices. It introduces tools that can be used at every stage of building a mobile application, from concept creation to commercialization, as well as real-world examples from industry and academia. The methods outlined apply user-centered design processes to mobile devices in a way that makes these methods relevant to the mobile experience–which involves the use of systems in the complex spatial and social world rather than at a desk.
