The Mobile Frontier
By Rachel Hinman
Publisher: Rosenfeld Media
Final Release Date: June 2012

Mobile user experience is a new frontier. Untethered from a keyboard and mouse, this rich design space is lush with opportunity to invent new and more human ways for people to interact with information. Invention requires casting off many anchors and conventions inherited from the last 50 years of computer science and traditional design and jumping head first into a new and unfamiliar design space.

    Comments about oreilly The Mobile Frontier:

    This book doesn't show you how to technically implement a mobile application nor does it tell you which decision to take when creating a mobile application.

    It's more a collection of essays about different parts of the mobile world from the point of view of a designer. It shows where things come from, where they are now and where they might go. Illustrated with a lot of real world examples.

    Read this book if you want philosophize about mobile and get some high level ideas to improve your app or the mobile world in general.

    Last but not least, this book is well designed itself. It's not simple content, the content is arranged to please the eye and enhanced with nice pictures instead of complicated diagrams.
