HASH(0x9f244e10) out of 5 stars Nice effort, a lot of screenshots, too much focus on iOS July 15 2012
By J. Pelgrim - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Two things stick out when you get your hands on this book. The first is that it's not so thick (280 pages). The second thing when you open the book and flip through the pages is that you see a lot of full color screenshots (a big plus) but little accompanying text (a big minus for me). You can literally read this book in a couple of hours. I think it would be more interesting if the UI pattern choices were larded with a little background and conclusions from human interaction- and user experience studies. Now it's just a big (but not up-to-date or exhaustive) collection of screenshots of how apps have solved certain mobile challenges which I might grab now and then for some inspiration.

The title claims that the book contains "UI patterns for iOS, Android and More", but the majority is iOS. I'm and Android developer and the Android examples in this book are taken from ancient Android versions. Android (and iOS) have evolved a lot and have much nicer UI patterns / solutions for certain problems you can find in this this book. If you seek Android UI/UX advise you are much better of keeping an eye on the Android Design website where information is updated, rewritten and added frequently. Although it's probably a good thing to elaborate on how patterns are used in current apps around the globe 'current' is bound to be outdated fast in a print book. So use this book and the screenshots in it as a view of how things are done in the 'past' and you can maybe find a use for it. It does contain a wealth of pattern names in the appendix, which is great to create a common vocabulary between designers and developers.

For $44.99 I wouldn't recommend this book to others. A price of $29.99 is more suitable and would maybe add an extra star. It is a good book for beginning mobile designers and developers. More seasoned pro's probably have their own on-line and more up-to-date resources on this topic and probably have their own view and opinion of what is good mobile design.

HASH(0xa21fe084) out of 5 stars Valuable and time saving May 22 2012
By Krzysztof Satola - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
The main goal for every (not only mobile) application is to be usable. One of the usability related elements is user interface design. It should be predictable, helping users to do their tasks, easy and quick to learn and use. This book contains a lot of mobile app example screens decorated with reasonable UX designer textual comments. They may be very useful while creating a new mobile application or improving existing one. The book's content is very inspiring. Lot's of examples help to learn how to create good and avoid bad designs (Chapter 10. Anti-Patters is a good example here). A very valuable and time saving book.

HASH(0x9ee97fb4) out of 5 stars A glossary of mobile design patterns for inspiration and reference April 21 2013
By Nora Brown - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Theresa Neil's book, as another reviewer mentioned, is light on text. It does not provide in-depth analysis on the usability or best use-cases for each pattern. However, the author nicely presents successful and less successful emerging design patterns for many mobile user interface challenges -- from navigation to sign-up forms. This book and is a quick read, but can also serve as reference and inspiration.

Most importantly, being able to spot these recurring patterns is helpful in analyzing user interfaces you encounter every day. And that, in turn, should help you improve your own designs.

HASH(0x9ee3eabc) out of 5 stars Nice and easy Aug. 11 2012
By Giuseppe - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
There is not a book that teaches tricks or codes. You can 'instead learn a lot about how to create an app or a site for smartphone or tablet. Many things we know or imagine, but putting all togheter e as the author has done is another thing. Book gives advice to those who definitely looks out for the first time in mobile web design but still be kept in the library for the most experts. Dozens of examples accompanied by excellent color images from which to get ideas for future web sites.

HASH(0x9ee7da80) out of 5 stars Best set of images and patterns anywhere online or in text April 14 2014
By SF Native - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I like that the author equates the book with a picture book for kids. See cloud, name cloud. See pattern, name pattern. This association method helps readers learn pattern types quickly, and with excellent examples. I have both the B&W and Color books. They are both equally effective. I have a lean toward the B&W version, as it is easier to focus on the pattern as opposed to features. Great book.
