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. One simple difference between "current" conventions is the placement of breadcrumbs and tabs on ipad vs keyboard and mouse, bottom of screen on ipad and top of screen on K&M.
Anyone know of examples of one UI being used on both IOS and Key & Mouse ? Your thoughts and comments are greatly appreciated.
