Chapter 1: Think Mobile Touch

Chapter 1

Think Mobile Touch

“A small step for man, one giant leap for mankind…”

—Neil Armstrong

These are exciting times for those who live and work with technology every day, whether they are young people who have used technology all their lives or they are like those who have adapted to it. These are exciting times because in recent years, no other example of technology has changed our lives so dramatically as the evolution of the mobile device.

In this book, you see how the mobile revolution has changed the way we develop applications and how touch screen technology brings new variablesto the table. First, you learn how to use new touch design techniques to design a touch-based user interface. Then, you learn how to adapt the same touch-based design principles to the specific needs of the iPhone and iPad. We base our project on an agile version of the standard Information Architecture process for optimizing both user and single-developer (or small team) needs.
