The Mobile Frontier
A Guide for Designing Mobile Experiences
by Rachel Hinman
Hinman dares us to get comfortable, calling the devices in our pockets "banks," "health clinics," and "movie theaters"—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
