Do I Need an App For That?

A session at HOW Interactive Design Conference West 2012

Tuesday 30th October, 2012

11:45am to 12:15pm (PST)

With more than 500,000 apps available to consumers, 2012 has been labeled the year of the app. But as you consider your mobile strategy it is legitimate to ask "Do I need an app for that?" This session will use case studies to explore the contexts in which an app is the right solution and also highlight the situations in which other mobile web solutions are the right choice for your users.

You’ll learn:

  • The difference is between a native and a web app
  • A working definition of responsive web design
  • The importance of understanding user context
  • The circumstances in which an app is the right solution and when it is not
