I'd like to donate fonts to anyone who are working on mobile phone UI's, but
I don't know if it is legal.
A while ago I made a two font sets, the Nokia Series 40 and the Nokia Series
60. These are the non-anti aliased fonts used in J2ME applications.
The font sets were recreated by me (using FontLab) and I have been using
them to create pixel-correct user interfaces for for the small and medium
size screens. (The new anti aliased fonts for large screens are available
Does anyone know if it is legal to distribute these?
I am embarking on a Mobile/Cell Phone application UI/IA/IXD project,
and as I am new to the mobile market (from the design side, anyway),
I was wondering if any of the mobile-oriented UI/IXD peeps here have
a set of standards, or can point be to some resources for such.
Things I am curious about -
Font Handling - is the a list of "phone safe" fonts ?
State Handling (off, over, down)
and really any kind of "general" pointers Mobile-experienced
designers can give me would be swell.
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
Little Springs Design has posted a wiki containing the pattern library
in my new book, Designing the Mobile User Experience. So far, it's
got around 10 patterns posted, with more to come in the next few
I'm planning on usability-testing a S40 application, and would like
to hear about the ways you tend to test usability of mobile
applications. Paper prototype is always an option, however, is that
all you do, or do you test with real devices? If so, do you capture
the input some ways, possibly with a software or a camera, or do you
just watch the user use his mobile?
