About the Webinar as Nokia says
Putting the user at the heart of your app designs is the key to creating winning apps. This webinar will walk you through a design example focusing on helping a user determine where they are, to facilitate the use of a location based application for Series 40 Touch and Type phones.
After giving an overview of the available methods for determining the user’s location, the webinar will discuss some of the fundamental drivers behind mobile apps design, such as user mind set, use context, and small screen limitations.
Armed with this knowledge, the webinar will explore practical design implementations to enable the user to estimate their location, with a focus on the ways in which you can translate technology into an easy-to-use application.
The presentation concludes with an overview of the Series 40 UI design tools and services offered by Nokia to help you deliver winning app design.
Overall, this session guides you on how to make complex technology accessible to Series 40 users.
