mobile interface design guidelines

Hi all,

For one of my project i have to design interface for handheld devices. Does
anyone can point me to a good BOOK and any other literature which could help
me in knowing the guidelines or more importantly patterns of application
design for mobile devices.

Also do any one know any particular studies where people qunatify these
guidelines and standards and generated user interfaces for different mobile
devices automatically?

thanks a lot!

IX / UX or UI designer?

Hi All,

All through my career, as a Graphic Designer I never explored anything other than graphic and print design. Now, I am interested and want to expand my skill set. I have no coding knowledge, but can understand HTML and css codings. I am not good with coding and at this point in my career, I dont want to get into it. I am interested to learn more about IX, UX and UI design. Wherever I search, I am not able to find any standard description or  defined career path for UX, IX  / UI designer.

Drop-down menus disadvantages?

Hi, I'm new to the IxDA list.

Do you know any good research highlighting the disadvantages of using
drop-downs?

At my company we're having a discussion whether we should stop using
them for our global navigation due to usability concerns.

Best practice for for number of items in a dropdown on a web form?

Hello everyone. This is my first post on IxDA. :) I've been
developing web applications for a few years now, and usability has
always been a priority, but I have only really started obessesing
about usability in the last year or so.

A colleague and I had a discussion about the maximum number of
elements that should be used in a (select) dropdown menu on a web
form.

He thinks that fifteen is the maximum. Me? I'm not quite sure what
to think.

Ajax product configurator examples

I'm helping a friend who has a small business (total employees: 1, total
budget: $0 or maybe less) brainstorm ideas for a custom product configurator
for his website. Similar sites might allow you to see the clothes on a model
and change shirt colors, add various designs to a t-shirt, or customize your
new Mercedes colors, wheels, etc. He's curious to find out if this sort of
product configuration can be done well using Ajax/Web 2.0 technologies.

PDF form v. HTML

I'm looking for information on the pros and cons of using a PDF form
to enter information that will feed into a database, versus a plain
old HTML form.

I don't have any experience with online PDF forms but my gut feeling
is that they might be less accessible and possibly harder to use
because of font issues and the like. Any thoughts?

How can I get the best out of a UX discovery workshop

I'm starting on a project in the New Year where the client has
arranged a 3 hour UX discovery meeting with 20 stakeholders right at
the beginning of the project before I've had any real time to do my
own research.

The client's objectives for the meeting are to define the personas
and user journeys and the first draft of the structure for the site.

After the meeting I will have an opportunity to conduct one-on-one
interviews.

The project itself is to develop a fairly laborious offline
application process into a streamlined online process.

Open format between Visio and Omnigraffle?

After observing the list for a while, it's clear that our community is split
between Visio users on PCs and Omnigraffle users on Macs. Is there a format
common to both Visio and Omnigraffle with which we can publish stencils,
templates, etc. so we don't have to duplicate our efforts? Alternatively,
are there simple converters between the two formats?

New IxD Techniques to Try in 2007

Hi!

I'm putting together a list of new IxD methods and techniques I've
found that I want to try next year:

http://www.odannyboy.com/blog/new_archives/2006/12/new_interaction.html

Oddly enough, however, looking back over the blogs I follow, I didn't
find too many new methods this year.
