Have you ever thought about creating a mobile app? What are some of the considerations to take into account in order to create a truly engaging user experience? Should you develop a native app or a web app? What are the benefits of each approach?

This interactive chat will focus on designing for mobile. Hot Studio’s John Gallant and Scott Tran will address best practices, smartphone features, creative tools/apps and engineering factors to assist in mobile design.

Don’t forget to bring your imagination as we will brainstorm some creative ideas together!
