mobile phone prototyping and usability

Hi all,

One of the students here at Interaction-Ivrea is looking for
information on prototyping techniques and usability for mobile phones.
He's already got the Nokia book "Mobile Usability: How Nokia Changed
the Face of the Mobile Phone." Most specifically, he's interested in
prototyping methods and techniques for mobile phones.

Anybody have some pointers? I ask here because I figure it might be an
interesting thing for others on this list. Excuse me if you've seen me
post this on another list.

grazie,
molly

Re: multi-select choosers of complex large sets.

Hi Andrew,

A great example would be choosing addresses in Outlook.
If you go to the "to" chooser, it has the means for a user to easily select
from your personal database of addresses, but what is added besides the
user's name is more information to make sure it is the right person. In this
case that added metadata isn't always necessary but it can certainly help.
In my situations it is often a requirement. I.e. select files.

Can you point to an example in desktop or web apps? I'm not sure I'm
clear on what you're asking for.

drag-and-drop between Flash list components

I think I saw this on this list a while ago: did anyone point to an
example of dragging-and-dropping elements from one select list to
another in Flash?

(BTW, I'm interested in alternate design ideas or usability suggestions
on this, I'm just looking for a specific example of this interaction
constructed in Flash. Thanks.)

selection from large & complex data sets?

hey there,

A problem that I have often found in web-based applications is around the
selection (multi-select) from a large data set that requires the display of
multiple layers of meta-data in order to allow the user to make a proper and
informed selection.

It appears that the current set of conventions and standards don't work well
in all circumstances, especially when the selections are made as a
sub-selection for another item (what I have been taught to call a correlated
repeating attribute).

My issues are around making these selections clear in method.

ADMIN: Sorry to say this, but the thread on Umbrella needs to stop

Hey there folks,

I am going to request that we move the conversation about umbrella and
respect and all its new variants to the workgroup list.

Since many people will be coming in after a long weekend and might not get
this message in time, please realize that some people will make a posting
after this message is sent. That's fine. If someone asks you a specific
question please be sure to direct your response ONLY to that person.

If I see a lot of back and forth I am going to put the list in moderation.

The Umbrella and respect

Hi Ben

Thanks for sharing the link to Tog's article. I hadn't read it before.

I recently came to the same conclusion and decided to dub myself a User
Experience Architect.

Unbidden dialog boxes [Was & also is Access points for context sensitive help]

Hi Alysander

Thanks for your reply. This is an interesting topic--to us anyway. :-) Once
upon a time, long ago, I designed a help authoring and delivery system for
the Mac that I wanted to bring to market. But then I went to work for Apple
where Apple Guide was just starting up and ended up contributing to that
design. Also, I was a tech writer before I became an interaction designer
and authored help systems, among other things.
