Is 'mobile first' already be outdated? - 4 views

  •  
    As always, new fads, discoveries and creativity have at their heart basic principles that are sometimes forgotten or overlooked. Mobile should be part of your creative toolbox, but not necessarily the first one you pick up.

Zurb Uses Kia RWD as a Good Example. Yikes. - 1 views

  •  
    Zurb story here: http://zurb.com/responsive/reading Kia's site is: http://www.kia.com Number 6 is Kia's new RWD. I went to the kia.com site and the RWD was pretty awful. * MIN WIDTH: -- images and text are blurry. -- horizontal nav completly disappears. -- the 3 stacked horizontal bars that should pull up a menu.....don't. They drop the main page and you're stuck facing a carousel and some monumental horizontal and vertical scrolling to see only models of vehicles. * MAX WIDTH: -- they don't have a max width and try to stretch into infinity. Stretched across 2 or 3 of my displays and I have the full site.....blurry. * MOBILE SITE: -- it's a mini-version of the main desktop site. -- this works well on the iPad in both vertical and horizontal orientation. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ I've seen great RWD when the min- and max-width are defined and the three horizontal bars become what used to be the horizontal navigation. But Kia's desktop RWD fall short in my opinion. If anyone ever reads this, I wonder what their impressions would be.

Project Mighty & Project Napoleon. - 2 views

  •  
    Adobe's Project Mighty and Project Napoleon are cloud enabled hardware. They enable a designer to carry his style anywhere he can access Adobe's cloud. Mighty is the stylus. Napoleon is the "shape tool". The stylus, among other things, can create a Kuler color profile from your iPhone, then paste that profile onto your iPad. You can cut & paste across multiple devices. The future of design is giving designers the ability to create at the same professional quality while on the road as they do when there at their desks.

Responsive Inspector - Chrome Extension - 1 views

  •  
    This is a Chrome extension that will resize your browser window to the break points in the code of the current site you are viewing. Those sites without breakpoints show a blank window in the extension. Responsive Inspector is helpful to see all of the breakpoints a particular site uses. Some have several breakpoints, other sites have just a few. It's a good learning tool. It's a wee bit buggy sometimes, but it's being updated regularly. If this link does not work, just search for "Responsive Inspector" in the Chrome browser Extensions.

Plug-in To View Your HTML Live on a Mobile Device - 1 views

  •  
    Adobe makes a plug-in that allows you to see on your mobile device exactly what you're working on (as long as it's on a server - like the dev server). I've found it very handy when working on something and wondering how it will look on the iPad. The plug-in works for a myriad of devices including droid stuff. You have to use it in Google Chrome and be signed in, but it's well worth the effort. Those of you with smart phones could load the plug-in on the smart phone and iPad at the same time.

Alto from AOL - 0 views

  •  
    AOL "creates an experience" where you can gather all of your e-mail addresses in one place. And you DON'T even need an AOL e-mail address to use it. Interesting..... I'm giving Alto a test drive with a few e-mail accounts.
