The big thing I've learned is that mobile apps demand a different way of thinking, especially when you consider the smart-phone form factor. Design concepts that work great on a desktop or notebook (or even a tablet) melt into a steaming pile of bio-goo when facing use on a smart phone.
So imagine my joy when Oracle's Andrew Gilmour (a friend and a great storyteller) sent me this email this morning:
Oracle Launches Mobile User Experiences Design Patterns
Mobile design requires a different way of thinking. Use Oracle’s mobile design patterns to design iPhone, Android, or browser-based smartphone applications. We are sharing our mobile design patterns and their baked-in, scientifically proven usability to enable Oracle customers and partners to build mobile apps quickly.
Our design patterns are common solutions that developers can easily apply across all application suite products. Crafted by our insight into Oracle Fusion Middleware, the patterns are designed to work with the mobile technology provided by the Oracle Application Development Framework.
So, you mobile developers...you ADF gurus...you technically inquisitive types...ya'all know what to do from here. Then share your experiences in the comments.
