Key Considerations
Return to Top
  • Data entry is difficult on mobile applications. Minimize the amount of input required when designing your form.
  • Consider defaulting data based on location, photos, and recently accessed data.
  • For example, instead of requiring a user to enter a starting address when retrieving driving directions, enable the application to default the current location based on GPS location data. Or enable a time entry application to "punch the clock" for a user who shows up at a job site at a specific location.

  • The page is easier to read when related fields are grouped into sections and additional details are summarized and available on a separate screen.
