Kill The Hamburger Button | TechCrunch

That little three-lined button is the devil. Whether you call it a side menu, navigation drawer, or a hamburger, hiding your features off-screen behind a nondescript icon in the corner is usually a poor mobile design choice. Interaction theory, A/B tests, and the evolution of some of the top apps in the world all support the same thesis: The hamburger button is bad for engagement, and you should probably replace it with a tab bar or other navigation scheme.

Web design as troll: how The Verge Fanboys piece taunted the internet | Vox Product Blog

How do you speak to a group of extremely passionate people? What kind of design would speak to them? When Joshua Topolsky approached us about creating three different layouts in the style of three mobile UI’s we were initially torn. Something about mimicking the UI of phones didn’t feel original. But more importantly, it presented a problem of presentation. There was an inherent a UX problem to solve: do you offer presentation options or do you trick the user? We decided to troll.

Motion Ui Design Principles — Beyond Kinetic

This blog is a quick look at some simple Ui motion design principles.  There isn’t too much documented about this area of mobile ui design and I thought there would be some value in expressing my views.   From what is documented already I urge anyone interested in ui motion to check out Pasquale D’Silva http://psql.me/ and Johannes Tonollo’s meaningful transitions http://www.ui-transitions.com/#home.

The Revolution in Interactive Storytelling Has Arrived, and Surprise, Google Is Behind It | Cartoon Brew

Last week, Google’s Advanced Technology and Projects group released the second animated short, Buggy Night, in its Spotlight Stories, a series of interactive mobile-specific animated films available on Moto X phones. Like the first film in the series, Windy Day, which debuted last October, the new short relies on spatial awareness and the sensory inputs of a mobile device to create a distinctive storytelling experience.

Google Spotlight Stories

We love stories. We love technology. And we love creating where those two things come together. From that, we made a new storytelling canvas especially for mobile and then partnered with world-class creative talent to make Google Spotlight Stories. We can’t wait to see what happens on our storytelling journey: what we’ll learn, who we’ll meet, where we’ll go. But most of all, we hope it makes you smile.

How the Float Label Pattern Started

I first had the idea for a new input pattern back in August. The idea was simple enough - animate placeholder text to show an icon beside the input so you don't lose your context. I've been doing 99% mobile work for the past 2 years and little things like this can really add up. I wanted a solution that saved space, looked clean and clear, but didn't forego usability.

Capturing camera/picture data without PhoneGap

As people know, I'm a huge fan of PhoneGap and what it allows me to do with JavaScript, HTML, and CSS. But I think it is crucial to remember that you don't always need PhoneGap. A great example of that is camera access. Did you know that recent mobile browsers support accessing the camera directly from HTML and JavaScript? Let's look at an example.

Des applications et des services pour marier télé et tablette

La création du département "Nouvelles écritures" au sein du groupe public en août 2011 a clairement imprimé le rythme aux équipes de production. Des pages Facebook dédiées aux émissions, en passant par des applications tablettes et smartphones d'information en temps réel (FTV Info) ou de télévision de rattrapage (Francetv Pluzz), avec guide TV, direct et personnalisation, tous les secteurs sont abordés. France 5, quelques mois après le lancement de son application Zouzous destinée aux enfants, va bientôt proposer un nouveau service sur iPad rattaché à l'émission "C à vous", afin de mixer social TV et télé connectée, de façon immersive et synchronisée (par marquage sonore) en direct avec l'émission diffusée à l'antenne. Les espaces cuisine, séjour ou salle à manger du loft d'Allessandra Sublet permettront de retrouver les éléments diffusés et d'interagir avec les chroniqueurs et les invités.
