Mobile Interactions

When creating an online desktop experience, as Designers we want to choose the most interactive medium possible – then weigh that with the audience we’re designing for and make a decision. XHTML/AJAX? Adobe AIR? MS Silverlight? With each of these options we can create a highly interactive experience, with real-time interactions, large graphics, sound, and even 3D in some cases. And it’s something we’ve grown accustom to with better computers, better browsers, and more bandwidth.

But when Designing for mobile, we’re kind of partying like it’s 1999. With browser fragmentation, low speeds, and low adoption of mobile data – what interactions should you be designing for mobile devices?
