Final Questions for Luke
What core features do web apps have access to vs mobile websites? vs native apps?
Mobile apps seem to have the advantage over mobile sites, with that in mind do you think companies will focus more on developing native apps instead of a mobile website ?
Design for every kind of web access is changing with extraordinary speed. We know when this happens many things that are useful today will be irrelevant tomorrow. What can we focus on that will keep us current in our web development and will be essential for the longer term?
What are the first three important things you think of when creating a mobile optimized site from an existing website.
How do you address the ever expanding range of screen resolutions among mobile devices and how does it effect the design process (when in the process do you take it into account)?
What level of interactivity do you foresee for interactivity at point of sale between individual’s mobile devices and company’s devices. something akin to Bump? to replace physical “club/frequent buyer” cards?
Where do you see mobile design going in 2013? 2014? 2015?
