8 min. lightning talk
With people using an average of 3.2 connected devices in their daily lives, this talk will explore the value in making it easy continue tasks and activities across different devices. How can we remove the friction between these screens?
“I’m in the subway; as usual, I’m checking Facebook on my smartphone, then I move on to scrolling through a news article. Before missing my subway station, I put my smartphone back in my pocket. Once I get back home, how can I quickly continue reading the news article on my tablet?”
People use an average of 3.2 connected devices. Today, the user experience takes place in the continuity of use between different screens. We conducted a quantitative and qualitative study to identify the key elements of this multi screens UX. More than 170 questionnaires and 23 individual user tests allowed us to build a strong knowledge base. We present the priority factors of multi purpose devices on 4 services: VOD, social networking, news and e-commerce.
The transition from one device to another for the completion of a task has been particularly studied, e.g. from a mobile to a computer or from a tablet to a mobile... We have identified good and bad practices for the design of a multi-screen experience. Sample result for e-commerce: users do not see that their shopping cart is synchronised between their devices. Because of this lack of guidance, the user repeats the task: he adds products into the cart a second time. Thanks to the results of this study, we present design and evaluation tools for the multi-devices UX.
