Interactions & Mobile Devices: Conquering the responsive mouse trap

Mobile devices are wonderful because they give us immediate access to a larger world and the best mobile experiences are intuitive and engaging. Design involves much more than just skinning a site to make it look great. We are designing the whole experience.

However, touch based devices have some quirks that force designers to think differently about how they create those experiences. Watch this episode of our video podcast series as Giovanni talks with Jenn Lukas about one of the most fundamental and often troublesome quirks: The lack of a hover state.
