Publisher Comments:

In Designing Multi-Device Experiences, author Michal Levin discusses how UX design is currently evolving beyond the boundaries of the single-device model. Until recently, design models for online products considered only the standalone computer or laptop as the platform. Now, in our increasingly multi-device world, a users experience with one application can span many devices--a smart phone, a tablet, a computer, the TV, and beyond. In response to this reality, Michal introduces and explores three key patterns she identifies as critical to addressing multi-device design: consistent, complementary, and continuous.

Michal shows how “the 3Cs” are emerging in product design models in a variety of industries, like gaming, publication and even sports and entertainment. She explores new ways to grow product ecosystems by applying this model more thoughtfully, encouraging product designers to use an ecosystem design approach to develop the richest possible experience for the consumer. In addition, she sees opportunities to employ this approach in new and emerging spaces like home solutions, education, and even health care. Finally, she advocates for a new data analytics model that provides a comprehensive view of ecosystem performance.

Synopsis:

Welcome to our multi-device world, a world where a users experience with one application can span many devices—a smartphone, a tablet, a computer, the TV, and beyond. This practical book demonstrates the variety of ways devices relate to each other, combining to create powerful ensembles that deliver superior, integrated experiences to your users.

  • Learn a practical framework for designing multi-device experiences, based on the 3Cs—Consistent, Complementary, and Continuous approaches
  • Graduate from offering everything on all devices, to delivering the right thing, at the right time, on the best (available) device
  • Apply the 3Cs framework to the broader realm of the Internet of Things, and design multi-device experiences that anticipate a fully connected world
  • Learn how to measure your multi-device ecosystem performance
  • Get ahead of the curve by designing for a more connected future
