So Easy a Child Could Do It - Designing Apps for Little Fingers

A session at Mobile Central Europe

Saturday 11th January, 2014

12:00pm to 12:45pm (WMT)

Young children can seem to “get” touch devices right away. But is designing apps for young kids child's play? Not so fast. There are special considerations to make when designing for young kids, to maximize their engagement and minimize their frustration. We'll discuss using characters, audio and visual indicators, and inactivity timeouts. We'll also cover which gestures are intuitive for small fingers, how the way children hold tablets affects UI, and what content to include for parents (and for legal reasons) and how.
