The Mobile Frontier

A guide for designing mobile experiences

Service Design


"A must-read for anyone who cares about the future of digital media, The Mobile Frontier explains not only the technological revolution that's upon us, but also the behavioral, cultural, and psychological changes (and opportunities) ushered in by mobile. If you're not listening to Rachel Hinman, you're not hooked up right."
Josh Clark, Author, Tapworthy: Designing Great iPhone Apps

"In The Mobile Frontier, Rachel Hinman offers a comprehensive perspective on designing for mobile devices in support of mobile people. She draws on her decade of experience, and the results are highly readable, engaging, and—more importantly—actionable."
Jon Kolko, Director, Austin Center for Design

"The "big picture thinking" you need to understand mobile computing and its astounding implications."
Luke Wroblewski, Author, Mobile First

"Hinman dares us to get comfortable, calling the devices in our pockets "banks," "health clinics," and "movie theaters"[md]but not "phones." Then she gives us the tools to build them ourselves. When everything else in mobile is shifting—the boundaries between computers and the human body, the boundaries between computers and the environment—Hinman's book makes future possibilities clear."
Liz Danzico, Chair, MFA in Interaction Design, School of VISUAL ARTS, New York City

"From tiny touchscreens to geo-located services, mobile devices have caused us to rethink how we design. If you're looking for a primer on mobile fundamentals, look no further than The Mobile Frontier. In casual, easy-to-understand language, Rachel Hinman gives an overview of today's mobile landscape—and tomorrow's."
Dan Saffer, Author of Designing for Interaction
