Form filling on touch devices

I'm working on a project where a user will sign up for an account on a touch device. (This is a one time only flow). This process involves 5 fields. From what I've read/experienced over the last couple years, it's often good to limit screens to one field, so the user can focus on that, fill it out, and continue on (via a next button or whatever). 

One reason for this is that error recovery can be very tricky on these devices, and people can get confused on how to navigate fields.

can an IPAD UI function as a desktop UI

Hi all, I'm a UI asked by a client to create a UI for Ipad and a Web App with the same functionality and workflows. I've been asked by engineers to keep the UI the same on the ipad and desktop web app. I'm wondering if anyone knows of research on this subject, can an Ipad UI function just as well as a desktop UI? Or is it important to have two UI's one for the ipad, and the other for the desktop app. Also more generally the number of devices accessing apps, clouds, web so in will certainly skyrocket.

Re: The non-Americans

I'm from Sweden (not Switzerland ***joke***) another country fighting
for their language. The main influences come from English, and since
many Swedes are good at English, some areas of our language begin to
lack Swedish words...

The positive side of it is that it is often easy to work in

Implementing I/A and web strategy when you don'thave control of the content

Hi Todd:

I've seen many projects like this one, and there are some good patterns I
bet I and others can share.

But first: the big thing you didn't include is what the goals are. You've
mentioned a series of constraints, but not the goals. A redesign can mean 50
different things. As long as everyone understands that making big
improvements will be more difficult with the constraints you've mentioned,
then you can still be set up to succeed. But if everyone is expecting the
world, and they don't recognize how challenging the landscape is, you are
set up to fail.

ADMIN: Invites from Social Networks

Today an invite went out to the IxDA Discussion list inviting people
to a social network on behalf of a subscriber.

I haven't spoken to this subscriber yet, but I am going to assume the
following. They said invite everyone in my Gmail contact list unaware
of the fact that their contact list consists of everyone they have
ever written an email to including discussion lists like this one.

Ok, yes, the person didn't want to do this, but they did and they have
to be responsible for it.
