Review

"...I have good news: Buy this book...The book deserves a prominent place on your bookshelf..." ( Interactions , July 2006)

From the Back Cover

Mobile or cell phones, handheld computers, RFID tags or even implants. What could or should the wireless future be? Already, mobiles are an essential part of life for two billion users. We are told that wireless devices will help us to communicate and relate in better ways, become more creative, better educated and more efficient and effective in our working lives. Yet often with new developments or devices the hype is followed by some small successes, and a great deal of disappointment. This book is about catering to the everyday needs people have, about shifting the design perspective away from technology and to concentrate on usability; in other words, developing interfaces and devices with a great deal of sensitivity to human needs, desires and capabilities. Presenting key interaction design ideas and successes in an accessible, relevant way, and containing exercises, interviews and case studies, this book is a must have for students on Mobile Design and HCI courses, for designers keen to make the mobile even more powerful and easy to use, and for anyone who wants to broaden their understanding of effective human–centered design in the increasingly vital context of mobile systems.

A must for a budding HCI enthusiast. Matt Jones provides a very interesting insight into MID and the book is a real page turner. Written in a clear and concise manner that will redefine your thinking in regards to HCI when it comes to the design of a Mobile Interface. A must read for anybody planning on making an application for a phone, the book is from 2006 however, so don't expect any information on touch screen devices, but the new way of thinking it promotes in regards to design techniques will help you in this area regardless.

5.0 out of 5 stars If you take the module.. 5 Mar 2013
By Sarah L
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
If you take Matt's module at Swansea Uni. He will work a lot from this book. He tells you about the book, but doesn't constantly try to sell it to you. As someone who is interested in MID I thought I'd buy it. It's a really good read to anyone who is in to MID not just those on the course. I have found a lot of course textbooks heavy reading, but not this book - it's a light read and very thought provoking.

Before you buy this book, check the index: you won't find a single mention of touch screen, iPhones, iPad or Android. It's desperately out of date, and I dare say has little relevance to today's market (unless you're dealing with developing world markets).

If you're looking for a book to help with touch screen mobile/tablet devices, I don't think this is it.

Time for a new edition!
