Over 60% of internet access is accounted for through the use of mobile devices. In order to be successful mobile marketers in 2014, companies and big brands must stay ahead of the curve by delivering content in concise and seamless mobile experiences. In this session, we will review a user-centric mindset to mobile solution design and how to deliver best-in-class user experience by matching user needs and limitations to business goals and objectives. We will demonstrate how user experience and development teams collaborate to design and build a mobile app that meets the requirements for cross-platform, multi-device deployment (including Windows Phone and Store apps). We will discuss the process (and pros and cons) of selecting the tools and the setup for building a hybrid mobile application.
