Inside Mobile Design and User Experience

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

The UX Lab is a great way to contribute to our product design efforts as well as experience various prototypes and 'in progress' work. We'd love to hear from you and this year it is a bit different from the past few Lotuspheres. Instead of scheduling half hour blocks of time to meet with someone, we're adopting a 'drop-in' model. That means you can come any time and stay for 5 min or 1/2 hour or any time in between. Tyler and I will be manning the Mobile station.
