Reviews - What do customers think about Designing for Small Screens (Advanced Level)?
Practical for interaction designer Apr 11, 2007
This book brings the introduction about the practical part of mobile device design. this would like a simple dictionary for the novice to look for the existing spec in mobiles.
a good overview and very well organised Oct 4, 2006
The book presents the basic areas when designing for small screens. It is well organised by interesting chapters and by the excellent organisation inside each chapter that are divided in 3 sections. The first more theoretical, the second with practical examples and the third has a good overview of the technologies behind. This makes the reading and the browsing later on much easier. Hence, the book covers the design but also gives an overview of the technological issues.
The information is interesting and to the point but not very deep. In the end it has a reference book list but a list of web references would be very useful for a quick look when more information is needed.
This is a good reference book to have in your desk to refresh the main issues when designing for small screens and with a link to the technologies behind.
