Using treemaps to visualize threaded discussion forums on PDAs

Björn Engdahl, Malin Köksal, Gary Marsden
2005 CHI '05 extended abstracts on Human factors in computing systems - CHI '05  
Overall, it was shown that the benefits derived from using treemaps on desktop computers are still valid for small screens.  ...  This paper describes a new way of visualizing threaded discussion forums on compact displays.  ...  The only time when the text based interface turned out to be faster, was when the list was sorted directly on the search criterion: e.g. finding the most recent threads is trivial if the list is sorted  ...

Usability Studies on Mobile User Interface Design Patterns: A Systematic Literature Review

Lumpapun Punchoojit, Nuttanont Hongwarittorrn
2017 Advances in Human-Computer Interaction  
Some notable differences between mobile devices and desktops include the lack of tactile feedback, ubiquity, limited screen size, small virtual keys, and high demand of visual attention.  ...  Although mobile devices are becoming an indispensable part of daily lives, true standards for mobile UI design patterns do not exist.  ...  Another challenge to navigation on mobile devices is to display large amount of information on a small screen.  ...

Enabling cross-device interaction with web history

Timothy Sohn, Koichi Mori, Vidya Setlur
2010 Proceedings of the 28th of the international conference extended abstracts on Human factors in computing systems - CHI EA '10  
We describe a system that enables users to quickly find directions on their mobile phone based on past web searches, and seamlessly share favorite web pages between their personal devices.  ...  Web browsing is one of the most common tasks, thus sharing web history is a first step in supporting cross-device interaction.  ...  Merely scaling down such pages into thumbnails tends to be hard to read on small screens.  ...

Mobile information literacy: a preliminary outline of information behaviour in a mobile environment

Andrew Walsh
2012 Journal of Information Literacy  
It highlights areas of existing literature that report variation in information searching and use on mobile devices, in addition to reporting on the results of a small set of semi-structured interviews  ...  This was a small qualitative study, interviewing five experienced and confident users of mobile devices which will not show the full range of mobile behaviour in seeking for and using information on the  ...  Mobile search, however, is heavily influenced by the natural constraints of using a device with a small screen, a small or virtual keyboard and may be characterised by narrowness of sources used.  ...

Automatic Synchronized Browsing of Images Across Multiple Devices [chapter]

Zhigang Hua, Xing Xie, Hanqing Lu, Wei-Ying Ma
2004 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
Doubtlessly, browsing a large number of images on such small-form-factor devices is still hard and time-consuming, especially when they are distributed across various devices.  ...  In this approach, similar images across multiple devices can be simultaneously presented for users to make comparatively viewing or searching.  ...  The search images are sorted in an order according to the similarity and are then displayed on the screen. 5. Repeat steps 1 to 4 for images to be browsed across devices.  ...
