Congratulations, Smashing Magazine, on your release of The Mobile Book!
This new publication offers wisdom about the most important things that you need to know as a designer, developer or mobile strategist to make your websites optimized for mobile – collected from some of the magazine’s most illustrious authors.
“You’ll dive deep into the peculiarities of the mobile industry, explore responsive design strategy, design patterns and optimization techniques, learn about wireframing and prototyping for mobile as well as the guidelines for designing with gestures and touch. If you are looking for a good book on mobile, this is the one.”
Steve Tengler, Altia’s own UX Director, had the opportunity to review the book for UXMag.com. He gives it a definite “thumbs up”!
“If you’re an executive, …capture these three key points: 1) ‘There’s no time like the present to abandon static ways of thinking about how layout and content interact’ and 2) ‘…57% of users who had a problem with a website on their mobile phone, including slow loading, wouldn’t recommend that website or service; 46% wouldn’t return’, and 3) ‘… there is no substitute for being in control of your own destiny.’ If you are the UX architect, these informative chapters should become your Even-Newer Testament.“
