Touch devices are quickly becoming a dominant form of computing in business and consumer settings. This talk looks at the basic mechanics of touchscreens, specific recommendations for creating touch interfaces, and examples of good and not-so-good touch experiences. Even if you don’t think of yourself as a “mobile designer", you have to be sensitive to touch considerations because someone more than likely is using your product on a touchscreen.

Successful touch design involves understanding how touchscreens work and some of the interaction challenges that come when people use these devices in the real world. This talk will help you get started in this important, new way of design thinking.
