Connie Malamed:Designing and Writing Mobile Apps for Performance Support
5:30 pm - 6:30 pm EDT - Networking & refreshments
6:30 pm - 8:00 pm - Presentation (Live or Virtual)
As the trend toward mobile performance support grows, it's difficult to know where to begin.
Although technical writers and learning professionals can play an important role in the development process, the design considerations are difficult to sort out. Designers and writers need information on how people actually use mobile phones, how to represent screen organization and flow designs to programmers and the technical aspects to consider.
This session will sort through the disparate information on designing mobile performance support apps and explain many of the inherent design issues. You’ll get the scoop on the differences in designing for iPhone and Android and whether it’s best to go native or web-based for your application.
You will also find out about low-cost resources, such as where to find pre-made icons for mobile apps and wireframing tools.
