users), in order to have an idea on for future designs. Do you have
any useful resources?

A list of mobile situations

Hi all, since we're all interested in the design for mobile, I thought it
would be interesting to have a list of situations, common activities and
contexts that could related to the mobile design. The list would help us to
reflect upon mobile and would be truly INSPIRATIONAL for all the designers.
Sometimes, in fact, we don't reflect on what are the contexts in which our
users are going to interact.

usability testing equipment for mobile devices

Hello IxDA'rs

We are looking to purchase equipment for usability testing on mobile devices. I have done my research and there are 3 methods for this type of testing:

- Fixed device positioning: this setup is that the mobile device sits on a fix location with a webcam attached to the device via a metal neck or other type of support. The webcam points to the mobile device, recording the screen and the user's interaction with the device.

Mobile phone - environment interactions?

I'm looking for clever example of mobile phones interacting with the
environment, like in a museum or a retail space. I'm thinking of
interactions like pushing information to phones while the person is on-
site, or having them use their phone to make queries or send text
messages to an on-site system. I feel like this has come up on the
list before, but I didn't find anything in the archives.

I'm not sure if this technology would just be a gimmick, or something
that could be made useful and/or fun.

Mobile touch screen UI trends

Hi everyone,

Does anyone have detected new trends on web design for touch screen mobile
devices as HTC, Samsung, etc...?

Have you seen any web optimized for HTC?

Everybody is optimazing their website to iPhone UI, but what about the
others touch screen devices?

What would you recommend, should we use a different UI for this kind of
models, more iPhone like or should we keep designing classic mobile web UI?

optimize or not optimize?

[Event] IxDA-SF presents: Motion Design: Storytelling and Wayfinding in Mobile UI Design

IxDA-SF is pleased to have Punchcut this month sharing their insights
on mobile interface design.

Motion design is a key component in emerging device user interfaces.
Designers must go beyond the gloss and use motion and animation to
guide users through an experience. We will discuss and demonstrate
motion design principles that balance utility and dramatic impact to
create memorable, playful and usable branded experiences.

Christian Robertson will discuss the practical benefits of ways
motion can provide meaning.

From time to time I find myself struggling with writing very short
describing text labels and titles for our web application's UI.

Writing text labels and titles for the UI is much like writing road
signs, people go by them in very high speeds and you have a limited
amount of space.

I wanted to ask, how many of you work in companies who hire full time
copywriters? Part time?

Do you have a special UI copywriter adviser outsourced?

Or do you manage by yourselves and just advise anyone around you?
