Hi guys,

So, specializing in web apps, I've had precious little work on
touch-screens (especially for mobile platforms) come across my desk.
However, the market seems to be heating up.

Although many of our skills are easily transferable from one platform to
another, I personally could use some reading on the nuances and
strategies associated with good IxD in relation to mobile and touch
interfaces.

Do any of my fine colleagues out there have any links to how-to-guides,
studies, and interaction overviews related to mobile platforms and touch
screens?

Sincerely,

I'd recommend Cameron Moll's book on mobile web design
(http://mobilewebbook.com/). Also, for more touchscreen-related
tips, you may want to check out Apple's iPhone web application
design guidelines (https://developer.apple.com/webapps/index.php).

This is already up on the mobile design resources wiki, specifically
at http://patterns.design4mobile.com/index.php/TouchWeb ... add to it
with anything else you know.

I would second Mark's recommendations. Dan Saffer's Designing
Gestural Interfaces is also a great resource.

We have a large number of demos, lessons and reviews of touch
interaction posted at www.pointanddo.com

It%u2019s direct versus indirect interaction and this makes all the
difference.

Fitt%u2019s law and target acquisition, some exemples:
