This article on design is packed with examples of smart phone design. It’s all web based stuff, but the ideas could be implemented, as necessary, in FileMaker Go. Or, of course, WebDirect.
In this article, Chris Bank of UXPin – The UX Design App details many of the best UI design patterns that have cropped up in modern web sites and mobile apps recently, and examples of how they’re used in popular web and mobile products….
The team at UXPin recently dug through their favorite UI design pattern sources to identify the recurring solutions that companies were coming up with to address common design problems as web and mobile applications continue to evolve at a rapid pace. We’ve seen a beautiful assortment of ways that products use swipe, click, hover, and hold triggers in web and mobile apps to bring users to the most relevant secondary and tertiary information or next step in a major user flow without cluttering the interface, or even cleaning it up.
Below, we’ve shared a few of these standard reference points with you to help you as you brainstorm, sketch, wireframe, and prototype. We’ve even included wireframe examples to help you visualize these patterns at different stages in the design process. While most of these UI design patterns specifically address mobile problems, many apply to web as well….
Don’t be afraid to beg, borrow and steal these designs – but make them your own, and solve real problems for your users so they like the product designs you produce.
Take a few minutes and stretch your ‘design’ mind.
