Inside Mobile Design and User Experience

Thoughts on mobile and social business applications, design, and user experience, by Chris Reckling.

The Connections apps released in October add additional command URLs to what we already had in them. See this post for details on the first batch and when you might use them, then come back here and check out the new ones. The account info is optional. To use these, call them wherever you would use an http url, such as in an "a href" tag.

Added for Connections 4 mobile apps, but they are client side so will work with a Connections 3.x server.

Launch Forums

This should make it easier to move from your own apps or web sites into the Connections mobile app.
