9780124166912: There's Not an App for That: Mobile User Experience Design for Life

There’s Not an App for That will make your work stand out from the crowd. It walks you through mobile experiences, and teaches you to evaluate current UX approaches, enabling you to think outside of the screen and beyond the conventional. You’ll review diverse aspects of mobile UX: the screens, the experience, how apps are used, and why they’re used. You’ll find special sections on "challenging your approach", as well as a series of questions you can use to critique and evaluate your own designs. Whether the authors are discussing real-world products in conjunction with suggested improvements, showcasing how existing technologies can be put together in unconventional ways, or even evaluating "far out" mobile experiences of the future, you’ll find plenty of practical pointers and action items to help you in your day-to-day work.

  • Provides you with new and innovative ways to think about mobile design
  • Includes future mobile interfaces and interactions, complete with real-world, applied information that teaches you how today’s mobile services can be improved
  • Illustrates themes from existing systems and apps to show clear paths of thought and development, enabling you to better design for the future

About the Author:

Simon Robinson is a researcher in the Future Interaction Technology Lab at Swansea University. His work so far has focused on mobile technologies that allow people to immerse themselves in the places, people, and events around them, rather than just in their mobile devices. Simon is an avid rock climber, and loves the fact that climbing doesn't need a touch screen to make you feel full of life. More at simon.robinson.ac

Gary Marsden was a professor of computer science at the University of Cape Town, pioneer and passionate advocate of HCI for development, and community builder. He became internationally known for his work in mobile interface design and ICT for development (ICT4D) - for which he was a recipient of the ACM SIGCHI's Social Impact Award in 2007. Gary died suddenly of a heart attack on December 27, 2013, and is survived by his wife Gil and his two children, Holly and Jake. More at marsdenscholarship.naga.co.za

Matt Jones is a professor and Head of Department of Computer Science, Swansea University. His research work focuses on human-centered computing with particular emphasis on mobile and ubiquitous computing and resource-constrained communities in regions such as India and South Africa. In his spare time he tries to live life face on with his energetic family, and enjoys nothing more than an exhilarating early morning cycle ride to the glorious beaches of the Gower.

Review:

"...a book for practitioners, researchers, and students who want a glimpse at possible futures for mobile app design, or who agree with the authors’ assertion that 'headsdown thinking' is not the optimal approach for mobile user experience." --Technical Communication

"...focuses on mobile users and tries to determine a good user experience design...The interface should provide a user experience that is more people-oriented rather than technology-oriented...an interesting book and the concept is explained clearly." --Computing Reviews

"The authors give great examples of inspiration from food, fashion, fitness, and even from mess and uncertainty. They discuss how a design can enhance mindfulness..." --User Experience
