Ergonomics and mobile UI Design

The majority of modern mobile devices and smartphones utilize touch screens, providing both unique opportunities and constraints for UI Designers. As a result, designers and their clients should consider the ergonomics of using mobile devices, including gestures and transitions.

Device dimensions, the way a user holds a device and touches the screen, and especially gestures all will play important roles in the development of a successful mobile User Interface system. Being knowledgeable of the general standards for mobile phones and understanding the ergonomic trends in the mobile industry will go a long way in the successful completion of a client’s project.
