Developer Workshop #5: Enhancing the mobile user experience through good tactile design

In an ocean of apps, how do you differentiate yours? Cool graphics and sounds are now commonplace and no longer leave the same impression on mobile users. With touch-screens as the UI of choice in mobile devices, tactile feedback is still one of the most overlooked yet valuable aspects of the mobile experience, especially in games. This session will discuss the value of touch design in mobile projects as well as core design principles to follow when implementing mobile tactile effects. Both gaming and non-gaming examples will be provided with hands-on tactile demonstrations for the audience to experience.

Attendees will learn that tactile feedback is a communication channel to be used to improve user experiences. Attendees will see how design and implementation of tactile feedback is easier than they may think.
