Inside Mobile Design and User Experience

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

We released another mobile app today: Sametime Meetings Viewer for iPad. This app is optimized for participants attending a Sametime meeting, although room owners will also find it useful if you've planned ahead and uploaded content to the meeting on your desktop machine.

You can set up and access multiple servers and easily switch between them. In the screen below I've set it up against the Greenhouse environment. We are using a sliding panel design pattern, so when you tap on the blue arrows (the detail disclosure button), a new panel slides in with the room details.

Once you enter a meeting, as the owner you can share content you've already uploaded to the meeting. Below is a screen with the projection controls and meeting room info, which you can copy to the clipboard to send out via email, chat, or sms. One handy tip is that you can use a special stmeetings:// url to send or include in a meeting invite for your ipad users that will open the app and join the meeting. Otherwise, searching by room name or owner is pretty fast.

The arrow at the top left reveals the discussion area as well as the library and participants list.

You can download it now from the Apple App Store here. This is the first release of more to come. What do you think? Besides Android and iPhone clients, what else would you need to make this useful to you?

Enjoy
